Ok, I am going to try something new, mainly because I have a lot going on and it is not always easy to get to these recaps. Let’s go over what has been happening on the show, Oliver has joined the League of Assassins basically to save Thea’s life. Ok, Oliver is like the best big brother ever, if Thea ever said otherwise I would jump through the tv and smack her.
Last time Oliver and Thea had to survive the island because Malcolm was hoping that Oliver would get his killer instinct back. Oliver handled things in the way that he always does, which is leave Slade Wilson to rot. Thea also learned the truth about who really killed Sara.
The important thing is that Oliver is back, he has decided to work with Malcolm, which made Felicity very unhappy to the point she does not want him to love her. Brickwell is out the pic and The Glades are back under police protection, Sin knows that the Canary is not Sara. Roy has the worst disguise because everyone knows he is the guy in the red hood.
Arrow is back after a mini hiatus, I am sure the most important thing that people want to know is Oliver....Spoiler
Here is part 2 of the fall finale review as we take a look at some of the other shows on hiatus.
Last week we learned more about Felicity and her hacking/computer skills. We also go to meet her mom who is completely different then her. Also a virus that Felicity created almost destroyed Starling City
I will give my disclaimer, it is National Novel Writing Month so that means 50,000 words in one month. Which is partially why the last 2 recaps have been missing. Also this will probably cause some recaps to be late and shorter, but if the shorter thing is working for us all then it will probably continue. Now onto Arrow, well a lot has been going on Thea is back, her father is also lurking around, Nyssa was very upset to find out Sara was dead, and Laurel is training with Ted Grant.
Anyone who follows the comics knows that the main Black Canary was Dinah Laurel Lance, with the death of Sara earlier this season and with Laurel training with Ted Grant who does help train the Black Canary, I think we all knew where this was going. Here are the first images of Kate Cassidy as Black Canary
Her outfit is a bit different from her sisters, Sara Lance’s Canary was a but more sexy and much closer to the look of the Black Canary as we know her.
Laurel’s Black Canary outfit is much more tactical, it is sexy but in more of a Catwoman sexy then the bodysuit and fishnets that we are used to when it comes to Black Canary. I am sure the fishnets are very impractical because they probably snag and rip on everything. No word yet on the Canary Cry, unsure if Laurel will be using her sisters sonic device or if Laurel is somehow going to become a meta human.
What do you think of the Black Canary costume? Are you looking forward to Laurel taking on the mantel that we all knew she would?
