    Ra's definitely improves the season. Really highlights how much filler this season started with, but at least it seems that it's revving up to something now.

    Arrow really needs to stop making the plot move forward by people being stubborn and dumb. It's not interesting to watch, and it does this all the time. There are better ways to get the plot moving, but so often it relies on competent people being ridiculously incompetent/stubborn/dumb.

    Well, agree on both. At least partially.

    Finished the season. Overall, kind of an uneven season. Of course, when you start your season with killing one of your better characters, you're already 1-0 behind. But the whole plot became so convoluted, it's ridiculous. I love John Barrowman as Merlyn, but when you think about everything that he has done, then the whole working together angle feels a bit forced and out of character. And Ra's had a good actor, but his character's motivations were all over the place. On the plus side, they managed to improve both Laurel and Roy, two characters that I couldn't care less about beforehand. Still not two of the better characters or anything, but at least they're tolerable. And I'm glad that more side characters such as Nyssa were given bigger parts, should be interesting. Overall, I do think there is enough groundwork for an interesting season 4.. if they don't fall into the same pitfalls as this one.

    Thanks for the review.

    So...move to season 4 :)
    I think it's starting episode was much better than the Flash one.

    Without spoiling, how's season 4 so far? Better than 3?

    Well...it varies. Opening episode was great, later episodes preparing "Ledends of Tomorrow" was too forced and boring. Crossover was nice, though I still hate the related characters.
    Now, not needing to prepare "Legends" - some episodes are really nice, some are less and even much less. It varies.
    Flashbacks sucks this season.

    Hmm alright. Have been meaning to jump back in again, but S3 was imo not that great, so I'm a bit apprehensive.
