so you have the batfam, right? and we all know that bruce and clark are in love, so there’s ur superfam/batfam tie in, and since bruce & clark are the “heads” of their respective families, that means that the superfam and batfam are now the superbatfam and are the same thing. following me? good.
and we know that dick is in love with wally, which means that the batfam and the flash fam are tied together, and since barry & bruce love their kids (dont tell me wally isn’t barrys kid i won’t hear of it), an effort is made to combine the bat & flash fam. so the superbatfam and the flash fam are connected. still following?
that leaves jason, who’s in love with roy, and since bruce loves his son but hates oliver and oliver loves his son and hates roy, and also roy hates oliver (and jason hates bruce but like, not really) the arrow and bats combine via dinah, who’s–wait for it–in love with babs. so the arrowfam is tied to the batfam via dinah, who’s a part of the arrow fam whether or not she’s dating ollie, and roy.
roy & jason are, of course, dating kyle, who’s a lantern, and therefore you have the lanterns claiming to be tied to the superbatarrowflash fam, as well. still with me?
and steph & kara & cassie are in love, which is relevant because cassie is in the wonderfam, and diana is bff with bruce and clark and donna is bff w dick, so naturally the bats & wonders are one & the same now.
obvs tim is dating kon & whatnot, but the superfam is already connected, & cass is dating harper–a bat–so now all we have to do is remember that the bats, supers, arrows, lanterns flashes, and wonders are all one big family. still with me? good.
now i want you to close your eyes and imagine the thanksgivings.
friends!!! Missed you guys! Man it has been a long writing break for me. I hope
I remember how to do this!
hellatus survived! Another season premiere! Six seasons - wow. We’ve put in a
chunk of time with this show. What I admire about Arrow is they really pay
attention to what worked and what didn’t in the previous season and try
incorporate those lessons into the next. Arrow has five years of lessons informing
their sixth season premiere and the episode reflected it.
There is a
seamless fluidity and confidence to “Fallout.” Arrow knows what it
does best and what it doesn’t. The captain of the Arrowverse, the original DC
TV show, “the veteran” is owning their experience. The cast feels
incredibly well integrated, it’s fast paced, funny and emotional. Most
importantly it answers the long awaited “cliffhanger” while still
leaving some unanswered questions and launching new mysteries.
“Fallout” is an interesting choice for the episode title. It stuck
with me as I watched because of the open endedness to the term. The definition
of fallout is:
1 a :the often radioactive particles
stirred up by or resulting from a nuclear explosion and descending through the
atmosphere; also :other polluting particles (such as volcanic ash) descending
b :descent (as of fallout) through
2 :a secondary and often lingering
effect, result, or set of consequences
There is no
conclusion or end to what happened on Lian Yu and what Adrian Chase did. The characters are still falling through the
consequences. Some are grappling more than others with the, but the lingering effects
are shifting them all in new directions. For some, these new directions are wonderful. For others, it is like a radioactive particle slowly
descending all around them… like a cancer taking hold.
