  1. I'd assume they have been. As I understand it, when a show gets picked up from pilot status, they try to lock in their starting cast to a good 5-7 year contract. People who join after that tend to get year-to-year contracts. Meanwhile, what was the "Sanvers" situation?
  2. It's already the fourth season, so who knows how long "long term" would be. Also, one of the things about LoT is that it maintains the flexibility to shift its cast from season to season instead just having the same group year after year.
  3. "Legen...wait for it" They suit up to do battle. "Dairy" they have to fight the bad guy in cow costumes.
  4. Assuming this is Nora from the future, she might well have met him and known about it.

    I kind of want the Homeworld Gems to recognize that Connie going to space and helping Steven subvert and effectively "overthrow" the Diamond Authority was considered by her parents to fall under the category of "play time" and now they expect her to resume focus on more serious work. Just file that under Humans are Terrifying.

    Coolest scenes were these two:

    That kind of baffles me as well - especially since Topaz only showed up in maybe 2-3 episodes while Peridot has been a pretty consistent presence since the end of Season One.

    This cute, adorkable green bundle of wackiness is Peridot This kind of horrifying monstrosity with human beings sticking out of her body? That's Topaz.

    Though figure Lapis Lazuli's reaction to the idea of human-style sex would probably be "Thanks, but I'm not putting that in my body."

    I was riffing on My main point was that Gems could potentially become much more powerful by fusing/blending with human organic forms such that the humans provide bodies so that the Gems would have more energy/bandwidth to use on innate abilities. Plus the idea of a bunch of Gems coming to Earth to sign up for dating sites was a little hilarious to me.

    I think a Hillary-style pantsuit fits Pearl's personality better than a mini-skirt. As for Steven's powers, think a little bit about that silly-ass "theory" that human never use more than 10% of their brain. That might be true consciously, but unconsciously/autonomically that other 90% keeps us breathing, digesting replacing cells and generally performing the trillions of operations per second that keep us alive. For Gems their "90%" is required to keep/maintain their hard-light physical form which allow them to physically interact with their environment. Steven is different. Because he has an organic, physical body that mostly works like a human's, he uses far, far less of his "Gem bandwidth" and can potential do a whole lot of other things (psychic powers, fuse with humans, etc.) Figure if Gem even figure out that effect, we might see a second invasion of Earth because HOMEWORLD NEEDS MEN.

    S05.E10: The Flash & The Furious

    That actually sounds like a good reason for Barry to go after the car, if the police were endangering lives by chasing it. Again, haven't seen the episode, but ending a hazardous car chase sounds like a good reason for the Flash to suit up and get to running.

    S05.E10: The Flash & The Furious

    An attempt, sure, but I wouldn't call it desperate. For one thing LoT is off until April. For another, I could see your point better if it'd been Ray Palmer, Nate or John Constantine doing the writing. Mick Rory was "born" on The Flash. So The Flash doing a bit of a callback to a character who originated there is fine with me. Plus, yes, Mick writes how men think, but he's also been immersed in a pool of extra-strength estrogen with Sara, Amaya/Charlie, Zari and the other strong, interesting independent women on LoT for a good two-three seasons now. Figure there's a reason Ava Sharpe (an out lesbian and Sara's committed girlfriend on the show) also enjoyed Mick's writing.

    S05.E10: The Flash & The Furious

    Who says they dropped it off (didn't actually see the episode)? Hasn't it been published already? I know on LoT at least one of his books has already been published (Uncaged Desire). I'm a bit surprised that Barry liked the book. I figured Barry would be leery of it but Iris, Caitlin and the other women would like it. Honestly, the idea of Mick Rory turning into the Arrowverse version of E. L. James is hilarious to me.

    For the moment. CBS started last season at 13 as well and most of us assumed that would be the final season. We might see the order upped this season as well if another CBS show falls flat.
