Quote:The show has really lost it's way this season. Who am I supposed to be rooting for?
Quote:I really can't blame the newbies for leaving, they all got treated like s#it because they were the new guys.
Quote:That said, I wouldn't trust Wilddog as far as I could throw him. I don't feel that his betrayal was okay because he did it for his daughter.
Quote:I feel like he should make some sort of peace with Wild Dog but not let him back in the group. Wild Dog can chip in on emergencies but Oliver can't ever trust him again.
Quote:I'm all for someone picking their kid over their friends. But Wild Dog's action nearly separated Oliver from his own kid. You don't get over that.
Quote:It hasn't bothered me yet. William's a kid. Oliver lying to Thea (and Tommy and Laurel) always bugged the heck out of me. I don't like heroes keeping secret identities from their close friends or relatives. I feel like if you're really a friend (or brother or lover) then eventually you have to tell the people you care about or you're just lying to them over and over again. And it's not like their lives aren't always in danger anyways...how many times does a hero have to save a friend, relative or lover that doesn't know their secret...all the tie. Like personally I would hate to be Peter Parker's friend. He lies about everything to his friends and he can't keep plans. None of his non hero friends really know him IMO. But they usually end up murdered all the same.
The old argument was that friends and family were safer not knowing. It certainly seems like they are safer knowing though, which is maybe why in all the Arrowverse shows the friends and family end up finding out.
Quote:But keeping William in the dark I get. That poor kid needs a shrink after all he's been through. And I get not telling Moira...parents shouldn't know everything. But a real friend should be told the truth eventually.
How much more messed up and betrayed will he feel when he finds out Oliver is lying to him?
