Oliver Queen continues his quest to right the wrongs of his parents. I love the opening scene in this episode. Arrow is on a roof top and he fights around 10 guys to get to Marcus Redman. Then, he threw Redman onto a lower platform, stomped open a protective plate and threatened to stick Redman's head down into the electric sparks. Ouch! Redman became very willing to return his ill-gotten gains to the people he had injured. Go Arrow - my hero. *swoon*
This is an action/adventure, drama, fantasy series and that's what they have given us. I can suspend disbelief and marvel at the accuracy of his arrows. I think he hit one dude without turning his head. There is a lot of drama brewing in the background, but Arrow did a lot more action scenes and kept me entertained.
Did you notice Queen's ex-girlfriend has the same "look" as Lana in Smallville?
Uh oh, here is where I admit that I never watched Smallville....not one single episode. Had no interest in teenage Clark Kent. Sorry to have missed Jensen, though.
You just admitted two things. Jensen was in Lois & Clark, not the same as Smallville. I bet they won't let you step foot in the SFSF thread. Do you know what the SFSF stands for? No? Just messing with you.
"Jensen Ackles appears in season four as Jason Teague, a love interest for Lana. The pair meet in Paris, while Lana is studying abroad. When she leaves unexpectedly in the season four episode "Gone", Jason follows Lana back to Smallville and takes a position as the school's assistant football coach. In season four’s "Transference", Jason is fired from the school when his relationship with Lana comes to light. By the end of the fourth season, it is revealed that he has been working with his mother Genevieve (Jane Seymour) to locate the three stones of knowledge — three Kryptonian stones that when united form a single crystal that creates Clark’s Fortress of Solitude. The Teagues kidnap Lex and Lionel in an effort to discover the location of one of the stones in the episode "Forever", with Lionel claiming that Lana has one of the stones. In the season four finale, Genevieve confronts Lana, and the two women get into a struggle with Genevieve dying by Lana’s hand. Jason, who believes that the secret of the stones lies with Clark, heads to the Kent farm where he holds Jonathan and Martha hostage. He is killed during the second meteor shower, when a meteor falls through the Kent home and lands on him.
The creation of Jason Teague was something handed down by the network, who wanted Lana to have a new boyfriend—one who was "different from Clark". Gough and Millar were apprehensive because they were already introducing Lois Lane into the series, and introducing two new characters would be difficult. The pair thought about where the relationship between Clark and Lana had left off at the end of season three, and they realized that Clark had turned his back on Lana. Gough and Millar began to like the idea of bringing in a new character, one that would create a new love triangle; eventually they tied him into the larger storyline involving the three Kryptonian stones of knowledge.
According to writer Brian Peterson, where Clark brings "angst" and "depth" to his relationship with Lana, Jason is designed to bring "joy", "levity", and "fun". On the topic of Jason’s relationship with Lana, Ackles believes the character did love Lana, because he saw an innocence in her that had not been able to experience growing up in the upper class society; Jason grew up having to question the actions of his mother, and with Lana he had the opportunity to experience an honest relationship. Ackles was Gough and Millar’s first choice to play Jason Teague, as the actor had been the runner up for the role of Clark Kent when they were casting for the pilot. Ackles was contracted to remain through season five, but was written out of the show in the season four finale, which, according to Ackles, was due to his commitments to the WB’s new series Supernatural. Gough contends that Supernatural did not alter any of their plans, and that Jason Teague was intended to be a single season character"-Close Quote ...from Wikipedia

Thanks Darwin. I remember those episodes clearly, probably because I am a Jane Seymour fan. I did not know Ackles at that time and although I remember what happened with the new boyfriend, I cannot put a face to him. I appreciate the reminder. I need to watch those episodes again although Ackles might look like a baby to me.
