Arrow 2.20 “Seeing Red” Review

image

The Good: 

Going into this episode I was very trepidatious. Angry Roy was never my favorite character so a Roy who was so angry that he “wasn’t himself” was not something I wanted to see. Once the episode started though and I heard Oliver say “I got a girl pregnant” my expectations got even lower. Unwanted pregnancies stories make me feel as miserable as characters in unwanted pregnancies. Thankfully, though it is a negative in its own way, both were essentially plot devices for other stories. 

Obviously the star of this episode was Moira. I’m generally pretty good at picking when something bad is going to happen on TV but until those final moments I did not see that death coming. I was of course excepting a Slade makes Oliver choose scene but I was not excepting it be so soon or these two characters (I always figured it be Felicity and Sara). Moira’s death definitely shakes up the show in a way changing it in a dramatic way even more than Tommy’s death. Even Moira’s “final secret” though, I doubt it was actually her last, of Oliver’s love child became a very interesting future plot line even moreso with her death. Moira’s death was very emotional does make me incredibly excited for the homestretch of episodes leading to the finale.

The Bad:

As I said I wasn’t looking forward to Roy’s story but it was a bizarre for his story to essentially amount to nothing. I suppose it caused Sara to break up with Ollie and leave (I’ll get to that later) and he did kill someone and break Ollie’s knee but ultimately it didn’t amount to much. Roy’s in the exact same situation he was last week and I’m sure exactly why the Mirakuru had the effect on him that it did. Even the revelation that it’s not just Slade who sees his ex-lovers but all those under Mirakuru’s sway doesn’t make me feel better about that decision. If anything it makes me feel worse about it.

The Unknown:

I really did like Sara’s story in this episode even if it was occasionally, OK a lot, heavy handed. Her relationship was Sin was one of the nice little surprises of the season and it continued in this episode. Similarly I liked her decision to break up with Ollie and that she has darkness in her was all fine. I was less certain of her decision to seemingly leave Starling City.

I’m almost positive that Sara will be back before Slade goes into his endgame. Most likely with her “old friend” in tow but her decision to leave now without telling anyone seems reckless to the point of foolishness.

How is it possible to hate Andrew?? How? I don't understand.

Oh boy. I have a feeling if you’re following me it would be for long. Because this is going to be brutal.

Andrew is/was a completely useless member of the group who never actually takes real responsibility for killing his best friend. He also never once made me laugh because his entire existence was a joke. Nothing about him was clever or funny he was just annoying and irritating.

I’m sorry if you love him but I recently rewatched season 7 and I absolutely despise him.

breaking bad :)
