Finally getting caught up. I just read Wonder and I give it an 8. I really loved how you had the wonder twins 'create' the monster. Very exciting villain and great action. You just loooove to throw Chloe around dont' ya
Poor Bruce. I feel for him. I do, but I also wanted to smack him when he shot Oliver. I was afraid the thug was gonna wake up before he did. I love all the Oliver/Bruce interaction. I hope Oliver can reach him soon.
Interesting twist to have Emil save Chloe. I really liked that twist because I was wondering how the hell Chloe was gonna get out of it. It was a good choice to not have her suddenly be super and save herself, but rather the 'villain' who we already knew was working on a way to distract the power, did it. And now we have Chloe and Oliver in disagreement, which makes total sense and adds some layers. I can see how Chloe might come to that conclusion after all the lessons she's learned and been through and I can see how Oliver still will never be quite there and I'm not sure who is right. I'm kind of leaning towards Oliver at the moment. I hesitate to think it's a good idea to try to 'save' the villain again. Much to think about.
I'm so very interested in what happened back in Metropolis that Chloe still gets choked up about.

I'm going to give it a 7 as well. My favorite parts were Helena actually. I really like this character, though I was surprised by how buddy buddy she is with Chloe. I thought there would be more of a progress from her 'everyone's against me' attitude, to this. I loved the Mia/Helena scenes. Added some humor there. I understand why Mia wasn't all kickass because...hello!, Just got the crap beat out of her. I was actually surprised she was up to going out as is LOL! Poor Mia, but she sure put up a heck of a fight in the teaser. That was another of my favorite parts.
As much as I loved the Chlollie, I felt it was misplaced at times. I don't know. I just didn't feel Oliver's urgency to find Mia. She called said 'Help me' and was cut off. I was expecting more of a reaction. And then at Watchtower with the sexual tension (which I always love) but seemed to lighten a moment that should be more urgent. I did so love that passionate kiss. No complaints there
When Perry fired Chloe I thought 'What? She's just gonna walk away' but then you had her spying and finding out the truth, so that was nicely done. That's the Chloe I love! I would still like to learn more about that Perry/Waller connection.
ok I really had to LOL at the Waller/Emil stuff and how he just 'forgives' her for shooting him and they go on working together. I love the way that frames their partnership, but the whole time I was thinking...um, isn't he shot in the gut? What am I missing?
My jaw dropped when it was revealed that Bruce was working with Checkmate. That was a really good surprise and I liked the whole background on that. He's on his way!
I loved the end with Chloe breaking down realizing she can't do it alone. And how she felt Huntress and Mia did all the saving. And then YAY! Chlollie!
Overall, another great episode, but I definitely liked Legend more.

I see that no one is really taking to Helena yet. I have to say I like her already and can see where she's coming from and feel for her. I'm someone who doesn't take to OC characters very easily (or often) so I think you did a fantastic job. Now that you've explained that everything in SV cannon has happened, I'm even more interested in Chlollie.
