    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    Just as Hollywood realizes it's sometimes best to break up an overly long movie into multiple parts, sometimes it's smart to break up extra long threads to get a fresh start. Please make sure you pay attention to the rules for this thread. If you follow them, it will help keep it manageable for everyone. This topic is for spoiler discussion of Arrow only This topic is NOT for complaining/rehashing past seasons/episodes This topic is NOT for discussion of other shows in the overall Arrowverse EXCEPT for specific crossover discussion. When talk moves from spoiler-talk to non-spoiler character or relationship talk, take your reply to the appropriate character or relationship thread. Updated 8/17/18: Here is a link to the crossover episodes thread. If it's your first time visiting that thread, be mindful of the discussion guidelines.

    Better Things

    Isn't that the age when they're learning about primates and mammals....etc.? I can see a younger kid using vocab they just learned in science in a way they likely won't in a few years when their science classes focus on different things.

    Small Talk: The Quiver

    The admissions process can be varied. There is your grade point average which is an average of the grades you receive in every class through the four years of high school. There are also standardized tests (ACT or SAT). Public (or state schools) typically set a GPA number and test number which, if an applicant meets them, will get them automatically accepted. For people whose numbers are on the bubble, other things, like extra curriculars, will get looked at. For more prestigious schools, the competition gets tighter and the other things matter more. Although I don't know of many schools that interview at an undergraduate level. My school admits well over 5,000 new freshmen every year. They can't interview all of them. That's all undergrad. Applying for graduate or graduate professional programs (medicine, veterinary, dental, law...etc.) involves a separate application process. There's a new standardized test specific to your profession. Your score on that matters as do your undergraduate grades. People usually have to write a personal statement, have some extra curricular activity and may even have to go for an interview. Interviews are more likely for the more prestigious professions. And it's through this that the school can get the sense whether or not you're right for the program. Personality tests can be a problem because the science involved in them is often murky. Results can vary from day to day. They don't measure how adaptable one is. They're designed to measure comfort over capability. For instance, my tests would reveal me to be very anti-social and introverted but that's only my preference. I can certainly be outgoing and friendly because I need to be in order to do my job well. They're based on self-reporting which can skew their accuracy. Before I take any personality test, I know where I'll fall and I also can guess which answers I need to give to land where I think employers or admissions would want me to be. And basing hiring decisions or admissions on which pre-determined personality types best fit a profession lead to a lack of diversity within that profession. This isn't an "us" vs. "them" argument as both systems have their plusses and minuses. I don't think they're invasive and they can be very helpful to understand one's own strengths and weaknesses. But they're often used as shortcuts to doing the extra work and lead to labels. They're popular in the US too, just not in the admissions process. Personality tests are big business. And this is not an argument about the pros and cons of one system over another as both have their pros and cons.

    One Day At A Time (2017)

    I dreaded seeing a new post in here. Not happy but expected give Netflix's aversion to outside studios. This show is so good. It's probably unlikely but I hope it lands elsewhere.

    S09.E05: The Proof Hurts

    I'm trying to follow this all. And I kind of hate that I am. But he admitted he invoked Lisa's name in his conversation with Teddi and he admitted he was wrong to do so. So Teddi isn't crazy to think Lisa is behind this all. They're telling two different stories and yet there's some overlap in that their different stories can be explained by a third party. And Kyle did some interesting sleuthing about Lisa warning Dorit. I get a weird feeling from Aaron. He's basically some "energy" guy who moved from one actress to another. I also think it's strange that he never thought he'd get married again and yet he basically gets married as soon as his divorce is finalized. He just reads as a star fucker to me even if the stars are B or C list.

    FYI, seasons 1-3 are on Netflix in the US so spoiler tags aren't needed, even for the most courteous.

    Death In Paradise

    Isn't cast turnover pretty common with long running British TV shows? It seems as if it's a different mentality from American TV where casts are locked into contracts and paid pretty well. But IIRC, it can get pretty hot filming there. BTW, Kris Marshall was on Better Things tonight.

    S09.E04: Bahama Drama

    I know. I don't think they have enough evidence that that LVP 100% set this up. But I also don't think LVP and Ken 100% have proof that she didn't. And Dorit is being given a free pass for giving away a dog to a stranger. Do none of these people understand how rescues work? There's a reason rescues have strict rules and if that's where you want to get your pet, you should be ready to agree to their rules. She can claim she knew the woman because she works with a man who PK works with but that doesn't mean she'd be a good pet owner. Rescues do vetting. "She's a colleague of a colleague" isn't thorough vetting.

    A teaser aired during the Golden Globes tonight. I both can't wait for this show and worry I'm setting my hopes up too high because this teaser is amazing.

    Dirty Characters In Other Roles

    You've seen them as airheads and hotheads, now discuss when they were spinning in the city, being seduced by Russian spies or hulking about.
  18. MOD NOTE: We just hid a slew of OT posts which were bashing fans instead of talking about social media and/or behind the scenes information. In the future, if you think posting a tweet in response to an official is a clever backdoor way of making fan-base discussion on topic just because it appeared on Twitter, you'd be wrong. Please stay on topic and follow this mod note. (Or heck, follow the recommended post that has been at the top of this thread since May. ) Thank you!

    S01.E03: Remember It Was Me

    Mod Reminder: Please be careful when discussing the podcast---in fact, using spoiler tags while addressing things that were revealed in the podcast is strongly recommended. That includes revelations about the past that have not yet been revealed on the show. This episode shows that Dirty John isn't going to take a linear approach to the story and likely will get around to addressing the characters' history.

    S01.E10: Bluebeard's Castle

    I don't remember that but my memory gets the book and show confused sometimes. Even if Joe didn't do anything with Dr. Nicky's social media, there was sufficient evidence of the affair, of Dr. Nicky trying to reach her after she went back to Joe and Joe buried her in Dr. Nicky's backyard.

    One Day At A Time (2017)

    Usually it is but here I didn't feel like it did. For one, neither Todd (who I love in this show) or his wife are famous enough for me to associate the two of them together. Another, I don't recall any nudge nudge/wink wink moments. I agree. I thought he had a lot of moments to shine. I liked that the relapse wasn't a long drawn out affair. (Mostly because I kind of hate addiction storylines). I think it's more interesting to see him have to start afresh after seeing him comfortable in his sobriety and how drinking led him to stand up to his father. BTW, I liked the casting of Alan Ruck as his dad. I couldn't help but think he was playing Cameron Frye's dad. As for Avery, I too thought that would be too easy and while it was a happy moment, I do think it's going to be a fragile reunion. But this episode also felt a bit series finale-ish to me. I don't think they want it to be the series finale but Netflix has gotten brutal in axing shows it doesn't make it self. This is from an outside studio. I think that's why we saw Avery show up. I also think it's why they had Penelope admit to herself that she might not get one great love--she might have many. Ultimately, she was happy with who and where she is. I found that refreshing. Mateo's nice but she wasn't in love. Max was terrific but they want different things and there was no magical solution to why they broke up in the first place. I was going to save this series to watch leisurely over the weekend but once I started, I devoured it. I love it so much.
