I think you'll appreciate the flashback story in the S5 premiere
I really do hope the showrunner shake-up on "that other show" turns things around but I seriously doubt it, haha.
As for the "If/Is Question" of Ollie still being GA, I have faith you'll handle whatever path you take with him better then 'that other show' is.
Aw, you didn't have to push it back. For me, I started watching shows that had political storylines in them (like 'The Good Wife,' and 'Scandal') and just felt like it blended really well with Watchtower. With Season 4, it was fun to see Gordon take a step outside of his role of Commissioner and actually progress, and with that Mayoral race, there was an added element of danger placed on him that elevated the whole "someone is totally dying this season." To date, I think "Ceremony" (418) is one of my favourite episodes of the show. But as I said, because of the time jump, he wouldn't be Mayor anymore. We still get to see him in that role (thanks to flashbacks), and he actually has a much better, more compatible role this season, but I wanted to continue that particular thread and with Oliver being the Mayor in the comics, it made sense to do something with that now in a season that is so comic-influenced.
It's funny that we both kind of went down that rabbit hole together - the Mayoral Race of "M:SCU" S2 was planned from the beginning, about 2/3 years ago when I started outlining the general idea, but because of RL, it's coming out well after both "Arrow" and "Watchtower" have also dealt with it, so I've kinda pushed it into the background more of the season. I'm aware that is was a comic-book story, and I was excited that "Arrow" would be dealing with it, but not a fan of it's overall execution, but I'm happy you're using it as well.
There are plans to see all the series regular characters come back for Season 5 in some capacity so that includes Dinah and Mia
Speaking of the jump, are there plans for Dinah (and Mia) to appear this season? I really hope we get to see her side of the story, of how she and Ollie parted, and how she is with him and Chloe reuniting, and making it work?
Even though the fourth season ended with Dinah and Oliver riding off towards their future in Star City (with that flashforward of Chloe/Oliver being the antithesis to that ending), there's already quite a few seeds planted in Season 4 that suggested there would be problems for Oliver and Dinah down the road. With it being the final season, I didn't want to introduce some crazy new, last-minute reasoning to explain how their relationship dissolved. So there's some clues as to what may have tore them apart already there that will be expanded on. But I do plan on showing what happened, of course.
I feel like this season is going to air like Season 3 and take it's damn time, haha. I'm studying and working every day I'm not at Uni, so it's been rough. Been sitting on episode three for months. If I aired the premiere, there'd at least be something to talk about it - but yeah, if it's going to take a long time to drop episodes out then it might be a pain. Decisions, decisions.
I would totally love that, as I suspect would Karl, but in the same breath, I'd hate for that tease, then have to wait forever and a day to read the rest of the season Good things, as they say...
She totally drives there, but again, I haven't stuck to any geographical map or preconceived/established canon of where the cities are - it's such a nothing-burger to me.
Just did a little bit of looking, and it's doable, especially if Mrs. Sullivan-Queen still has access to the Queen Industries private jet - it's about 4 and a half hours, apparently. I can imagine QI and WI having a business relationship, and that tying the cities together.
Oh god no, hahahaha.
Ha! Drunk!Jack coming to an Instagram feed very soon, maybe?!
