You saw me do the ten highlights and lowlights of Supernatural Season Ten, now it’s Arrow’s turn! In this list, we look at the ten highlights I saw from this very uneven season three. Turns out there’s a lot to enjoy, especially when The Flash and his friends stopped by for a visit (and vice versa). These highlights are in no particular order, but I will start with three season long arcs that did well.
Ray Palmer and the A.T.O.M. suit
Ray Palmer was pretty much of a fish out of water with this bunch. He had money and resources, which is how Oliver got started, but he also had his technical genius dorky side, creating his A.T.O.M. suit and using it to become a hero in very awkward fashion. He too was motivated by a dead love, which isn’t that how all heroes and villains get started? He learned the hard way, this superhero stuff isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, no matter what equipment you have. The A.T.O.M. especially looked odd on the siege of Nanda Parbat when everyone else showed up with guns and swords. It was kind of like watching the Jetsons meet the Flintstones. But Ray was true, lovable, and in the end took losing the girl to another hero with surprising composure before blowing himself up. Or something. We don’t know what happened yet. All I know is you’ll see him in the upcoming spinoff Legends of Tomorrow coming midseason to The CW, so obviously Ray did something right.
