    Well, not for John Constantine it isn't. Probably pretty hard for everyone else though.

    They should've spent more time with that scene. Less Sara running around beating on people and more of them in the other realm.

    This show is drastically getting harder to swallow the more metahuman it becomes.

    Although Laurel getting owned in everything she does is still good lols. I feel like the creators make it a running joke.

    I thought it was a good episode. Loved the Constantine scenes.

    i liked him better than Keanu Constantine. I also thought the scene where they retrieve Sara's soul would be much better.

    As a feared, the flash being in the same universe is starting to hinder the show.

    I mean every time some serious s**t is going down. Well, hundreds are about to die, but let's not bother Barry. The show worked best when it was grounded dealing with crime, Now supernatural stuff is everywhere.

    I still can't buy Laurel and Thea being bad asses, every time I see them in a fight it's eye roll worthy. Plus the flashback scenes have become annoying and downright intrusive. It's not a bad show, it's just settled into a mediocrity. I suspect this show will be on for a long time, but will never come close to season 2's excellence.

    I'm starting to think, after watching tonight's episode, the person in the grave isn't felicity or diggle but
    Oliver's son.

    I hope it's a main character. Pretty much every regular character on the show knows Oliver's identity and is a part of the team. They need to lower the number of sidekicks.

    When watching the Flash and Cisco called him Barry in front of HawkGirl
    I just shook my head.

    At this point . . . . The new Ras aka Merlin can come and go WITH A GROUP OF MEN
    into the cave/Basement at will and unseen

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I doubt it will be laurel since sara is going to legends, without felicity how would they be funded? That leaves speedy, which I would love to keep around.

    Diggle and Thea seem like the only answers. It it were on a different network I could certainly see Felicity getting offed, but there is no way in hell the CW is gonna let them kill her off. They also aren't gonna kill off Black Canary.

    Thea seems most likely to me.

    it better not be thea or felicity. they're the only ones I like. I think it's their dad since he has that shady deal with Lt. Compton going. Arrow went pop in season 3. I don't like where it's headed.

    so who's idea was it for Laurel to open her mouth like she's screaming every time she uses the sonic tool? Director, Actor?

    Either way, it's horrendous. I can deal with cheeseball shows, as evidenced by my watching of arrow. But everytime I see her do the open mouth thing I cringe.

    It's Lance. Him being caught up with dark is almost guaranteeing some sappy on screen death

    But why would the Flash show up at Lance's funeral? Why would it be such a big deal to Oliver?

    I think it has to be someone more personal like his kid, his sister, or Diggle. His kid or his kid's mom makes the most sense because they won't negatively affect the show and the Flash is the one who told Oliver about them so he'd show up.

    That and he's the only other person that knows Oliver has a son. Warned him too that altering time lines can be dangerous so I can see why Barry would show up to the funeral.

    There were a lot of good meta jokes in these episodes with Barry saying "is that how he always shows up?" when Merlyn randomly appears again and Ollie saying the farmhouse "is better than the revolving door at STAR Labs that every bad guy casually walks in to."

    Very fan servicy episodes that are overall good fun but not exceptional writing. I always enjoy the crossovers, but I'm still getting tired of all the supernatural.
