ARROW Post-Mortem: EP Andrew Kreisberg Weighs In on the Events in “The Man Under the Hood”

71879
 
As promised, this week’s episode of ARROW was a non-stop thrill-ride.  It began with Oliver (Stephen Amell), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Sara (Caity Lotz) breaking into Queen Industries’ warehouse and blowing it up so that Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) could not get his hands on all the cool scientifically advanced devices inside.  Then it was a race to Central City to try to stop Slade again, but that time they were too late; but it was sure fun to meet Caitlin and Cisco and get an update on Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).  Read the rest of this entry »

THE 100 Scoop: Thomas McDonell Talks Playing A Character Torn Between Two Lovers

Thomas McDonell the 100

It is a predicament that most men would kill for: two women vying for a young man’s attention. But in the case of Finn Collins (Thomas McDonell), it is his worst nightmare. In the new CW series THE 100, Finn thought he had been condemned to die on a radiation-soaked planet, only to discover that Earth is a virtual paradise after living his entire life on a dying space station. Finn thought he would never see his old love Raven (Lindsey Morgan) ever again — yet in a much shorter time than anyone could have guessed, Raven has retrofitted a space pod so that she may rejoin her love on the planet below.

Unfortunately, Raven could never have guessed that Finn’s fatalistic view would lead him to fall in love again so quickly. From that first day on Earth, Finn was drawn to Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor), the de facto, self-appointed lead/savior of those sent to Earth. So now, in the space of a very short amount of time, Finn is going to be faced with two loves and one hard decision.

In a recent exclusive interview, star Thomas McDonell ruefully talked about his character’s interesting predicament and what he loves about portraying the reckless and romantic hero of THE 100. Read the rest of this entry »

ARROW Preview: “The Man Under The Hood”

AR219a_0239b.jpg-8db7a2d5-t3

Gotta give props to ARROW for the spectacular use of the character Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). You don’t just bring in a character like that and use him sparingly. ARROW has gone full tilt towards the Oliver Queen/Slade Wilson ultimate face-off — and with each new battle, we are reminded that Slade Wilson is not in this to win on just one front, but all fronts. He has preplanned his battle strategy down to the finest nuance. He does not just want to kill Oliver (Stephen Amell) — he wants to destroy him; destroy Oliver from the inside so that he is in as much emotional agonizing pain as Slade is every day of his life, and to isolate Oliver so that he has no friends or allies left to turn to. It is a brutal, ruthless and efficient battle strategy and, to our horror, it is working. Read the rest of this entry »
