Fall TV Preview

Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on Arrow, Grey's, Once, Lethal Weapon, Supergirl, The Night Shift, NCIS and More

Is Arrow‘s Felicity going into business? What drama is Grey’s Anatomy prescribing for Jo? What can Rumbelle fans expect from Once Upon a Time‘s “reset”? Is Criminal Minds‘ Reid a changed man? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.

There has been a lot of hinting and build-up to Arrow‘s Felicity starting up her own company, Smoak Tech. Are there plans for this in Season 6? —Aurora
“That was something we wanted to do last year, and then we got sort of seduced by the Helix storyline,” co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim explained to me. In Season 6 (premiering Thursday, Oct. 12), “I would say that people wanting that storyline will be happy, but for reasons that I think will be very obvious, it can’t be called Smoak Technologies. And all those clever readers who are like, ‘That’s because she’ll be changing her last name to Queen,’ it’s not Queen Technologies, either.”

Have anything new to share about Arrow‘s Slade sticking around? —R.J.
It appears Oliver will make good on his offer to his frenemy, in trade for his help against Adrian Chase, seeing as the CW series is currently seeking an Aussie lad to fill the guest-starring role of an “introverted, moody and naturally athletic” teenager.

Will the Grey’s Anatomy writers finally dive into Jo’s storyline this season? Will Jo Wilson find her mentor? And isn’t she due to take her boards soon? —Burcu
“We will absolutely explore Jo’s story more,” Camilla Luddington told me at TCA when I hand-delivered your Qs. “I know that with the domestic violence storyline, we want to show the spectrum of emotional damage that can do to someone — what their triggers may be, how it affects past and future relationships, the details of what she experienced — and hopefully show recovery and healing. It will be very intense to play but I feel honored to be given the opportunity to tackle something so complex.” As for the mentor matter, although Callie is now gone, “this season Jo may feel inspired by someone again,” ventures the actress, who also has heard “rumblings” that Jo will (finally) brave her boards in Season 14.

I have a question for Once Upon a Time: Can Adam and Eddy tease Episode 4, which is focused on Rumple and brings back Emilie de Ravin? —Liza
When I delivered your question, Adam Horowitz described the episode titled “Beauty” as “hugely romantic,” while co-creator Eddy Kitsis said, “It’s our favorite Rumbelle story since ‘Skin Deep.'”

Any scoop on The Night Shift? —Amber G
TC may be back, but his feet will be shuffling — and that will trigger a talking-to from his ex. “Jordan says to him a version of, ‘You’re always looking on the other side of the street. Stop thinking about that,'” showrunner Jeff Judah previews. “But that is just TC — wherever he is, he wants to be someplace else. And in the last several episodes, he’s torn between staying in the hospital and that family, and the new family that he’s created at the Syrian border.”Bonus scoop: With Mark Consuelos bound for Riverdale as a series regular, by season’s end “There will be closure” with his new character, Cain, Judah promises.

Who can we expect to see back on NCIS this fall? —Dedra
Co-showrunner Frank Cardea says, “Joe Spano is coming back for an episode” as Fornell, while Robert Wagner Jr. is set for yet another encore(/his annual visit?) as DiNozzo Sr.

Will Prison Break Prison Break Season 6continue? —Dayo
“[There is] nothing that we are currently planning on, but we are always interested in new angles on the stories that come out of our library,” Fox entertainment chief David Madden told TVLine at TCA. “If the producers have a thought about how to explore another iteration of it, we’d be excited to talk.”

Obsessed with Lucifer! In Season 2, we saw mythological elements. Will they be a big part of Season 3? —Maria
Looks that way, seeing as the Fox series is casting the recurring role of what is being dubbed “Sinnerman,” a slightly depraved criminal mastermind whom Lucifer suspects of kidnapping him at the close of Season 2.

Now that we know Rex Linn will play Riggs’ father in Lethal Weapon Season 2, who will play teenage Riggs in flashback? —Camille
That plum role has gone to the well-coiffed Chase Mangum, pictured at right.

I hope you can give out some Lethal Weapon tidbits. —DianaD
Oh, I have plenty more. Previewing Blindspot baddie Michelle Hurd’s arrival as Chief Gina Santos, showrunner Matt Miller said that with Murtaugh having chased Riggs to Mexico, “Captain Avery has sort of lost control of these guys, so we need someone to play the heavy, to come in to crack the whip.” Thing is, Murtaugh is “immediately freaked out” to see Santos, due to a “finger linger” they shared during a years-ago stakeout. But when he brings up the muddled memory, “he only sinks himself deeper into the hole with her.” Bonus scoop: Episode 2 of the new season features the show’s first boat chase, during which “Murtaugh gets to harpoon a guy.”

Any Criminal Minds scoop, particularly on Spencer Reid and his PTSD? — Diane
With his wrongful incarceration, Reid “just went through a major crisis, and we don’t want to pretend that never happened,” says showrunner Erica Messer. “At the same time, we don’t want to dwell in that experience. But you will see shades of how he changed, I would argue, for the better. A little of the innocence is gone, and yet he’s still the lovable, brilliant Dr. Reid. We’ll get the best of all worlds there.”

Will we see Greg again on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? —Erin
“As Rachel [Bloom] always says, ‘If we told you, that wouldn’t be very fun. And if he were [returning], we wouldn’t tell you,'” co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna said at TCA. Greg, she noted, was one of the few characters “that figured out his stuff, and moved on” — but his someday return is “not at all off the table,” McKenna noted.

Any word what the new case on Trial & Error will center around and who will replace John Lithgow? —Nicole
Season 2 of the midseason NBC comedy will revolve around a yet-to-be-cast older woman serial killer named Lavinia Peck-Foster, as well as another cold case. Neither John Lithgow nor Krysta Rodriguez will be back as series regulars, while a Serial-like podcaster will be among those helping Josh’s scrappy legal team.

Do you have any scoop about Supergirl and/or The Flash? —Sarah
I choose Column A, since I have just learned that the CW series is seeking a fortysomething actress to play a mysterious and “sexually compelling” Kryptonian who is being likened to Game of Thrones‘ Melisandre.

Any chance you have something on Jake and Amy on this season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine? —Shelby
What’s a summer TCA party with a Melissa Fumero check-in? With Jake and Rosa framed for robbery and jailed for several episodes, “The squad is desperately trying to figure out a way to get them out. All things are being considered,” Amy’s portrayer told me. “Remember how Charles’ hair went white? That is still an ongoing thing he’s dealing with while trying to not crumble from the stress.” Amy herself “is just in work mode, trying to work the case,” but charged a point where “she mayyybe lashes out in a library, on unsuspecting passersby,” Fumero hints. “She’s just trying to keep it together.” Might there be “conjugal” visit in the cards for Amy and Jake? “Kind of…? Sort of…?” the actress answered. “That’s all I can say!”

    Not interested in Jo’s story! I lived it

    • Lauren says:

      Yes but others who go through these things might find comfort in seeing that it doesn’t have to end in death. So many women die because of domestic violence or when they try to escape. It may be too truggering for you to watch but it is so important to represent it well. We don’t need negative comments like yours, I’ve been waiting forever for them to do Jo justice.

      • Gospino says:

        So your opinion is okay, but N’s isn’t “needed.” Aren’t you special. I’m with her. I have no interest in boring Jo. Now go ahead and snip that my “negative comment” (known to normal people as an opinion) isn’t needed.

        • Jen says:

          And why is Jo boring when her life story is so much more interesting than those of most characters? I care more about her than about certain others because with her at least I feel there is enough potential that just keeps being wasted. And maybe how Lauren worded it was wrong but there are too many unnecessary hateful comments about Jo, and this storyline IS important. Whether you care about it or not.

          • Hannah says:

            Nah, Jo is boring. Almost all of the characters on this show have been through traumatic life experiences (some more than others), and hers isn’t more interesting than the others. And while I’m happy that they are going to be showing the realities and horrors of surviving a domestic violence (because it is an important topic), I’m not happy about it being about Jo, and a lot of fans feel the same. Because she really is the most snooze-worthy character.

        • Matilda says:

          I agree that negativity about something that is as sensitive as domestic violence isn’t necessary. And Jo is more interesting than most of the characters. The reason you might find her boring is because the writers kept ignoring her. How a character who was in foster care, homeless and almost killed by her husband can be classified as boring is beyond me though. I find Maggie boring and had to sit through countless of episodes focusing on her so you might just have to do the same. Tough for you.

        • Liz says:

          Boring Jo, okay. Wonder if you’ll say the same after they have finally done her storyline. You may not care about it but there are enough people who do.

        • Lauren says:

          I’m not trying to be special, I’m trying to point out that this is a serious and important storyline that we shouldn’t immediately dismiss. I don’t care if you care about Jo or not, who is by far not boring. I seldom laughed as much as when she and Alex fake cried to get a hotel room. Just because she got no material for a long time you people call her boring but that’s your opinion. That doesn’t change the fact that women die because of this issue daily and that the Grey’s fans do nothing but victim shame Jo for how she tried to protect herself and Alex from her abusive husband. And frankly I’m tired of that, she deserves some respect for what she had to go through, like all women who face DV do, and that’s why I was bothered to scroll to the comments to see the first comment being about not being interested in Jo’s storyline when Jo’s storyline is incredibly important. There are 16 characters or so on this show and you can’t tell me that you care about every single one of them. It’s an ensemble show and you either watch all episodes and watch the storylines about characters you don’t care about or you ignore them, skip episodes or scenes. That doesn’t make this storyline any less important to tell.

      • Tiera says:

        That’s not very kind or compassionate of you, in fact, it was downright mean.

        N said they weren’t interested in Jo’s story, because they lived it. Then you explain why it’s needed, but then so sorely disappoint by following it up with, ‘we don’t need negative comments like yours.’ Really? N shared an opinion, that’s it, nothing else, while you were busy preparing to be incredibly rude and insensitive. Now that’s ‘negative.’

    • Kay says:

      I’m so sorry to hear that- I hope you’re well now.

    • Anna says:

      I’m sorry you went through it but it’s an important topic and I’ve seen women who had similiar experiences who have been looking forward to this storyline and were very upset that it got ignored last season.

    • Justin says:

      N+100

      No interest in Jo’s story either.

  2. T.W.S.S. says:

    This will be quite the reboot if anything involving Belle and Rumple can be described as “hugely romantic.”

    And did Supergirl’s casting directors really put “sexually compelling” in the description? Should make for interesting auditions.

  3. Mary T says:

    As someone who doesn’t watch Game of Thrones, your clue is no help to me regarding the Supergirl spoiler.

    • Wawasjohn says:

      Oh it’s just someone who is super attractive that keeps a lot of secrets but thinks she’s doing the right thing. U should really check out GoT. Gets really good and cleaner

    • Lauren says:

      And why? She barely got any storyline so far! I’m so over you people hating on her all the time. She deserves this spotlight for once, her story is important and she’s been ignored for long enough.

      • Jamie says:

        She’s had storylines in the past, and she was lame af. People are allowed to have characters they dislike, you know. Not everyone has to share the same opinion about everything. And plenty of people would just rather she goes away.
        Personally, I think her upcoming story is really important, but I would so much rather see another character deal with it because I can’t stand her. I would fast forward through her scenes, but I love Alex, so I’m stuck having to watch her if I want to watch his scenes.

    • stardust2672 says:

      So over you haters. Jo deserves this storyline. Camilla deserves this storyline. If you don’t like it then skip her scenes but I’m excited.

    • Yeppers says:

      Agreed. She’s such an awful character. I hope they write her out. And she can take Maggie and Amelia with her too.

      • China says:

        Calm down with all this hate. Why is everyone so against Maggie and Ameila? Ive seen so much hate toward Ameila especially.

  4. A says:

    Why won’t Felicity’s company be called Smoak Tech? They’ve already referenced it on Arrow and LoT?

  5. Eric says:

    They held the four episodes of Lucifer after that cliffhanger. Are you saying that they never dealt with that storyline in those four episodes, cause that makes no sense. Who sets up a cliffhanger for another season, then does four more episodes?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Lucifer Season 3 opens with brand-spanking-new episodes; the first “leftover,” standalone episode won’t air for a while.

      • Eric says:

        Wait…the trailer they showed was the 4 episodes, right? So why would they be promoting something that they are going to put off for a while. Still, was there plan to put a cliffhanger out there and then have four more non-related episodes? That’s a good way to piss off the audience. Still happy to have way more episodes this year.

        • DeeDee says:

          Apparently so. Except the ‘they’ in this scenario is the network and not the writers. The writers had already laid out the season based on the initial episode order and then were given four extras. I guess they could’ve tackled the cliffhanger in those four, but maybe they decided to give themselves the summer to really dig into the story and decided to do four standalones instead.

          • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

            Yep, something kinda like that (I talked to the showrunners about it just last night). It’s certainly nothing for any fans to get angry about/spin cynically.

          • digitalred93 says:

            If you watch the ComicCon interviews with the showrunners (see YouTube), those standalones were shot in the spring, but! They’re being worked into Season 3’s overarching arc so that the consequences that come out of each episode will tie into what happens next. It’s my understanding that 3 of the standalones will air this fall and one will air in the spring.

  6. Jen says:

    Rumbelle, hugely romantic and Skin Deep – that’s all I need to hear. Please let it be true.

  7. Maddie says:

    Thanks for asking the Felicity question. Too bad about Smoak Tech, it had a nice ring to it. People were already making t-shirts. I’m good with any name as long as it’s hers.

  8. J says:

    Jo deserves this. She deserves her mentor and she deserves her DV storyline. She had like 5 minutes of screentime last season due to the actress: pregnancy, if you are so adamant to hate on her then just ignore her scenes in the episode like I do with characters who annoy me.

  9. Lizzie says:

    I’m so excited for Felicity to start her own company! I’ve been waiting for so long. Weird that it won’t be Smoak Tech though. Maybe Smoak-Queen? Or Queen Inc. I know Queen Inc was featured in a future newspaper over on The Flash. So curious now!

    • Lizzie says:

      Oh no but I just had the WORST thought though. I hope she doesn’t have a joint company with Curtis and his name is included. I’d hate that.

      • Carlie says:

        I’m ok with joint company…but his name doesn’t have the same ring to it.

        I also want Thea involved cause I want more Thea/Felicity scenes.

        …assuming they’re not all dead.

        • Lizzie says:

          I’m really not ok with it at all. Smoak tech/Felicity having her own company has been a fandom wish for a long time, even before Curtis was on the scene. If he comes in and steals it, I’m be so mad. I already don’t like him that much this will only make me dislike him more. He’s already taking her place a lot, it’s like they’re trying to push her out.

          I’d love more Thea/Felicity scenes though. But I also like Thea working with her brother at the mayor’s office.

      • reesa says:

        I kinda think Curtis does not make it off the island.. So maybe in trying to honor him they’ll name the company something terrific? (see what I did there? :D )

    • Tiera says:

      I agree. It’s either going to be Queen Incorporated, like on Flash or Queen Industries, like the comic books. As Oliver’s wife, even if he isn’t involved, it’s still technically his company too.

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

        I’m 99.44% certain Guggenheim’s quote means it will not be Queen _____ (insert any word — Technologies, Incorporated, Amalgamated, Tacos…). I could be wrong, but I reckon I am not.

        • kath says:

          As long as it’s not Smoak-Holt Tech or some variation with Curtis, I’ll be happy. Felicity has earned her own company without have Curtis added because they writers couldn’t figure out anything else to do with him.
          Felicity can be successful on her own without having to have a man attached.

          • Betty says:

            In the comics before he became a superhero Mr. Terrific had a startup originally called Cyberwear. It was later branded Holt Holdings and eventually sold to Wayne Tech. I hate Curtis but I think they may be merging the two stories into 1. In hindsight it looks like EBR & EK’s SDCC’s interviews weren’t as chaotic and useless as they seemed at the time. They might have been telling us what their storyline is.

          • kaliber says:

            Yeah, forget the fact that he’s the one that actually makes the tech.
            .
            I don’t care how it plays out, I’m just pointing out that the people here trashing him and saying he didn’t earn anything are a little blinded by their love for Felicity.

          • PalJ says:

            Kaliber, it’s more their dislike of Curtis, who is a useless character and annoying character, that makes them upset.

            And if Curtis is only useful for a B story then that really tells me how unnecessary he is to the show which is in desperate need of writing off some characters because it’s becoming a bloated cast.

          • Liz says:

            @kaliber. Some of us have been waiting a very long time for Felicity to get something for herself, a start up tech company, and then Curtis comes along and gets included. Everyone else gets to be more than their mask – everyone else gets a mask – but Felicity isn’t allowed and has to stay the same in her little comic relief/IT girl box. I’m sick of it. Why does Curtis always take away from Felicity?

        • Gale Peacock says:

          I don’t want it to be Queen, I want the name of Felicity’s company to be all about her. And TV gods, I hope you smite the writer who comes up with an option that includes the name of Curtis Holt or any reference to that blasted character. Oh, he annoys me so! Useless twit. I hope he finds his husband and they leave Starling.

        • Kris0807 says:

          Too bad. Queen Tacos has a nice ring to it. I bet they’d be tasty. And they could have a food truck with a big crown on top, really draw in some business.
          Forget tech and hacking, tacos for all!

  10. Jill says:

    Do we know if John Lithgow pops up at all?

  11. I hope that the Rumple and Belle story is a good one, and that most fans will be happy with it. It’s been a struggle the last few seasons. “Hugely romantic” sounds good, but I hope the writing delivers and it doesn’t end up being misleading. I hope that Emilie de Ravin gets to guest star a more too.

  12. Gospino says:

    I think Prison Break will be back in another two years or so. That said, this most recent run was a gift. Loved it.

  13. Maybe it’s just me but I love the lack of information coming from the “NCIS” set.
    As for the Supergirl “40-something” – guess I’m going to have to be surprised since I’m probably one of the very who hasn’t watched even a second of “”GofT”.

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      The GoT character was some kind of priestess. I’m betting she is one of the robed women shown at the end of the season finale.

  14. Idol says:

    Oh comon ! Prisonbreak season 5 was fail, I can mention 100 ways how it failed. Please tell TV is for braindead now and writers are dumb.

  15. Angela says:

    Good to hear that Reid won’t be changed for the worse after his ordeal last season-I don’t want him to go dark.
    .
    I do hope they can touch on his struggle to readjust, though, because he did go through some nasty stuff while in prison, and he was drugged against his will again and had to deal with Cat’s mind games as well. So if they can show the effects of that stuff to some degree throughout the season as well, that’d be interesting. And it’d make watching him work to stay on the straight and narrow all the more rewarding.

  16. dansue says:

    T&E – no Julie Haggerty? Bummer

  17. Joseph Tobin says:

    Is there any new information about the ranch or iron fist season 2

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Gotta utilize the email address denoted abovewards. Comments are never read by human editors. [This is an automated recording. Beep-borp.]

  18. Mary says:

    Spencer was kidnapped and drugged his girlfriend was murdered in front of him and he still has innocence to lose. Just be honest and say that you want to forget the whole thing happened. That you never had a long term plan of how this was all going to play out.

  19. g says:

    I wish I could believe for one second that Belle/Rumbelle would get a “hugely romantic” episode but I was foolish enough to watch that show for years.

  20. Melissa says:

    My head tells me to temper my excitement about Rumbelle (I’ll never forgive A&E for the way they destroyed that beautiful and magical relationship in seasons 4-6), but my heart desperately wants to believe that they’re finally going to give them the hugely romantic story that they deserve.

  21. D says:

    On the Supergirl spoiler, can i just say on behalf of the sane part of the fandom, what the frick frack? Supergirl fans want LESS romance plots. Give us back S1 Kara!

    • kath says:

      Yes, absolutely. The combination of too much badly written romance and Supergirl coming in second to Superman and Mon El made it a much weaker show than it was in s1.

  22. Larc says:

    Unless Tony DiNozzo visits NCIS, I could do without seeing his father. Especially if Sr. is still hanging with those old amateur detective nuts. Please don’t bring them back under any circumstances!

    • MMD says:

      Haven’t been able to stand him or believe him since Natalie Wood’s death (not that I hold a grudge or anything……………..)

      • MMD says:

        IMO I’m not saying he did anything wrong but I DO think that he and Christopher Walken know more than they have ever said about that night.

  23. Yeppers says:

    Just write Jo out. She’s a terrible character that doesn’t do the story any favours.

  24. Greg Frizzell says:

    I want to see more Joe Spano on NCIS. Love the interaction between Gibbs and Fornell.

    • Margie Clark says:

      I do too. He and Gibbs bounce off of each other so well that it doesn’t seem like a script. Now that Tony is gone, I wonder what Robert Wagner is going to do on the show. I’m old enough to remember him as a young Actor. Man, was he handsome!

  25. Seth Martin says:

    Although I continue to watch Grey’s Anatomy, I still can’t bring myself to really care about Jo, nor most of the characters introduced in the last 5 or 6 years. I still watch for Meredith, Alex, Richard and Miranda, and some weeks, they are barely seen.

  26. Sarah says:

    “It can’t be called Smoak Technologies” …Uh why did you spend years telling the audience that there is a future where she owns a company named Smoak Technologies if you never intended to give her a company named Soak Technologies. I mean it just seems like a waste of airtime to have no follow through. I suppose I should just be happy they are going to give her a company at all.

  27. Rachel says:

    Lethal Weapon – did you really just write finger linger?

  28. d282 says:

    I am so looking forward to Season 3 of Supergirl. It is going to be awesome. I hope that they bring Mon-el back to Supergirl.

  29. toschi99 says:

    Jo is the worst character ever. Her lying brought Alex in his mess. And dont come up with the protecting crab. Alex had to been honest to Alex about her past. Hopefully Paul kills her and Deluca so they both out of the Show.

  30. Aurora says:

    omg that’s my question!! thanks for asking it!!

  31. Agent 86 says:

    “fortysomething actress to play a mysterious and “sexually compelling” Kryptonian”.

    If only Lucy Lawless wasn’t busy with the Pleasuredome stage musical in New Zealand!

    Although, I’m still hoping that they’ll cast her as Queen Hippolyta, an ambassador from Themyscira.

    As for Felicity, doesn’t she still own Palmer Technology, which itself bought out Queen Consolidated? I know she was ousted from controlling Palmer Technology, but I thought she still owned it and was using those billions of dollars to help finance Oliver’s mayoral campaign and Team Arrow?

  32. Em says:

    I wouldn’t mind to see Reid withdraw into his previous ways a little bit. Maybe become a bit more touch-sensitive again, a little more of his insecurity resurface. It makes sense; he was never meant to be the alpha male, especially w/Morgan & Hotch around to protect him. In fact, the showrunners could repair a LOT of previous damage by having a scene or two of Reid lamenting that H&M would’ve gotten him out WAY FASTER (cuz we all know they would have). Maybe that creates a little angst for Prentiss, et al, but moreover it would give the only remaining original character the opportunity to voice many fans’ GRIEF at losing H&M (not getting into the #nohotchnowatch debate; his departure fundamentally changed [damaged] the show). Even better would be to give him a love interest that’s both a surprise and not – resurrect his originally bisexuality and highlight Luke’s protectiveness of him. Luke + Reid = viewers. We all know Luke was sorta invested in Reid’s incarceration more than would *really* make sense after such a short time together. It would be both fitting and lovely and brilliant if that concern was incrementally revealed to be a connection that was deeper than either originally thought. And hey, with Hotch and Morgan gone, it’s the best I can hope for.

    Also, LESS UNSUBS, MORE TEAM. Less crazy improbable creepy freaks, more everyday profiling – kidnappers, terrorists, career criminals, etc. But I’ll stop now before this becomes a manifesto.

    • Emilie says:

      Maybe they will try to make us forget what it is to spend with reid, to change a little reid, so that it is ready this season finally having a girlfriend, finally I hope it is The season or never

    • The Rookie says:

      As fast as Hotch got to his house to save Hailey? Or as fast as Hotch saved Maeve? So no, Hotch would have not gotten Reid out from jail faster. Enjoy season 13 NHNW!

      • Em says:

        Phhhfffffpppbbttt. Different situations. Hotch would not have rested until Reid’s predicament was solved. He sure would not have advised him to plead guilty. He and Morgan would’ve death-glared everyone to the Atty General to get Reid out on bail at the very least. Having him languish in prison just would not have matched the team dynamic under Hotch. I mean, you find yourself in trouble and who do you call? The Suit. The Glower. The Softly-Spoken Threat. See eps “Profiler Profiled,” “Penelope,” “My Pleasure is Business,” “Demonology,” “Lauren,” “Derek,” “Internal Affairs,” “Minimal Loss,” and OMG I WATCH TOO MUCH CRIMINAL MINDS

  33. Don’t remember if they had any scenes together but Clayne and Michelle were on The Glades a while ago.

    I’m excited for Felicity to finally have her own company. I am bummed that it won’t be Smoak Tech.

  35. Ruth says:

    Pick Charisma Carpenter of Buffy/Angel fame for the role in Supergirl. I’m sure myself and many others would love to see her back on television.

    I love Arrow and the actress that plays Felicity, but seriously does every story line have to involve her? Arrow started out as a show about “The Green Arrow” and has quickly plummeted to “The Felicity Show”. Giver her a spin off or a season long mission and send her off some place…I need a Felicity break.

      Not every story involves her lol just in hte past two years there have been plenty of storylines that don’t involve her… Just off the top of my head: Oliver’s mayor storyline, Diggle’s injury in s6 and his brother in s4, Dinah becoming BC, Wild Dog’s back story and his daughter, Chase’s vendetta against Oliver, Diggle/Lyla, LL bringing Sara back, LL’s death, Evelyn, Slade, Talia, Anatoly, Curtis losing his husband, everything that had to do with Susan, and so much more…

      This company is something that has been building up for Felicity since season 4. It’s not our fault that you give that much importance to Felicity’s scenes and think that she’s taken over the show.

      In season 5, the Prometheus arc didn’t involve Felicity any more than it did any other character on Team Arrow, Diggle’s army time and imprisonment didn’t involve Felicity until the very end when Helix contacted her, and she had nothing to do with what Oliver was doing as mayor. Rene, Thea and Lance did the mayor stuff. Nor was she involved in most of the side stories of the season such as Tobias Church or the jail break of Cupid and the others.

    Imo:

    Lethal Weapon S2… yes.

    Lucifer S3…big yes, what a fun and unexpected show to watch!

    Arrow S7-ish?… NO, who’s counting anymore?? Stop milking the cow already for God’s sake… you killed Olicity, the franchised actors and their characters keep dying and reviving like the show should be called Re-Arrow-ator (hint: think 1985 and Jeffrey Combs), and the stupid “flashbacks” that stopped adding anything new to the story two seasons ago, are longer than the series itself! Annoying already!

    Supergirl S3… yes.

    Flash S4… definitely yes, but stop trying to turn it into Arrow II… I’ve always liked The Flash way more than Arrow, because of it’s ligther, fun tone. Please, go back to that, we need Cisco and the rest of the gang to be the fun, fresh, and smart team they always were… we don’t need more depressed heroes running around on tv, Batman and Green Arrow have that more than covered, already!

  38. I’ve only seen one episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend since I heard that Greg was leaving. He was my favorite part of season one. This show may be moving from my “catch-up someday” pile to “completely abandon”.

    its a good story line whether you agree or not. Just skip over it if you don’t like it. Most shows covers issues such as abuse, drugs or violence etc. the one who is getting boring is Amelia and I liked her but she needs to get over herself. Bottom line is the actors don’t write the storylines, they are playing a role which I might add she does very well. Lauren says it very well
