Gotham: “The Blade’s Path” Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

Bruce continued to pass Ra's al Ghul's tests this week, in "The Blade's Path," meaning that he also continued to fail at his own unspoken tests. By the end of the episode, Ra's was no more (though he managed to pass some sort of glowing power along to Barbara) and Bruce was out of the hero business.

It was another nice set of consequences for young Master Wayne as he continued to lose his way on the path toward something, presumedly, greater. Right now the boy's got a bit of a murder problem. He's too keen on taking a life and, I suppose, allowing a life to be taken in order to protect the greater good. I do think, however, there was probably a more direct way for Ra's to complete his quest to die at the hands of that dagger. It seemed overly complicated for him to be so vague about it all that Bruce would, at first, assume the knife shouldn't fall into Ghul's hands, and then figure out, on his own, that Ra's had to die by the blade. This was a plan that could have gone wrong many times over.

Arrow: How Long Will Diggle’s New Role Last?

Warning: this article contains spoilers for the latest episode of Arrow!

While this week's Arrow shocked fans with confirmation that Bruce Wayne and Gotham City exist in the Arrowverse, that wasn't actually the biggest development in "Tribute." After five years in hell and five more saving his city, Oliver Queen finally seems ready to hang up the hood and pass the Green Arrow mantle to another. Now it falls on John Diggle to keep the legacy going.

Arrow: “Tribute” Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

It's tough not to be frustrated with the general state of the Arrowverse this fall, with pretty much every series guilty of failing to capitalize on its respective cliffhanger ending from last spring. Arrow was as big an offender as any show with "Fallout," proving that the impact of Adrian Chase's final attack was far less dramatic than it could (and should) have been. Season 6 still has a long way to go before it can recover from that botched opening. The good news is that "Tribute" offers reasons for optimism, even as it juggled some fairly underwhelming story threads.

Unsurprisingly, this episode centered around last week's big twist, the fact that someone has leaked an incriminating photo of the Green Arrow to Channel 52. Like I mentioned in last week's review, I'm none too thrilled to see the series return to that secret identity well after the lackluster way it was handled in Season 3. It's pretty much the worst case scenario for character like Ollie, and it needs to be treated as such. Sadly, this episode didn't handle things much better. Ollie's leaked identity once again proved to be another bump in the road rather than a massive, status quo-altering development. Once again, Ollie was saved through the power of plausible deniability.
