“State vs. Queen”:  Okay, so really, who didn’t see that coming?  You know that Thea is Malcom Merlyn’s illegitimate daughter, because ever since the episode started, I was waiting for that to happen, I could   feel it in my bones.  Truth be told, I thought it would happen in the court or that Moira would reveal it to her daughter, but it happened between Malcolm and Moira because lets face it, how else would she not be convicted.  Now more than ever I am sure that Tommy is alive.  So sure of it!  Now, even though that was good, another great part is the fact that Roy is starting his girlfriend’s training.  Yay for Speedy!  Let me tell you, so excited for when she will become Speedy and Roy will become Arsenal (and find his Cheshire).  So much win in this last episode.  Also, I hope many of you caught the set design of the prison escape?  It was shaped like an Arrow.  The story telling and character development within this episode is amazing.  Every moment that goes by, every scene builds on top of the other and the characters become more grounded, worth watching.  You don’t even have to be a comic book geek like me to enjoy the show because the action, the acting and the writing together make such a wonderful and action packed show that is not only character driven but also very story oriented.  The past and the present work very well together to build something so amazing.  This is an awesome show.  Wednesdays @ 8PM (EST) on CW.

“Limbo”: Well, that was certainly interesting.  Kara was just down right cruel last night, cold rather.  She made a mistake and she is taking it out on Stephen who, yes, was a bit of a jerk last night.  He thought his powers could just make everything better but in the end they just stuck his head up his tushie.  Which is why his uncle, played by Mark Pellegrino is awesome sometimes.  He really does care for the boy and watches his back from time to time, but really, it’s hilarious how he goes about doing it.  Mark Pellegrino is hilarious, even with the simplest of actions that he does, like eat chips from a bag showing off just how awesome he is.  Honestly, he is the best part of the show.  Don’t get me wrong, the action is amazing and so are the other characters, I mean Kara is a badass, even if she was super cold last night, but the dynamic and the differences between the characters make them great.  Everyone in this show has a history, a past that has decided who they are and a dynamic has been set up between the characters to determine who they are.  Over all a great show with very well structured tension in the show and over all, the character development is good.  Wednesdays are awesome on the CW.  Wednesday @ 9PM (EST) on CW.
