Question: I am loving Season 2 of Arrow. It is jam-packed with action and has been really fun lately. I can't believe I am saying it, but I think The CW may have beat a major network in creating a great show within the genre (looking at Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Felicity and Oliver's chemistry is off the chart, and I even like Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. Do you also think Arrow is doing better than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Do you think the ratings of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are enough to qualify for the people at Marvel to plan several rumored spin-offs or new series? — Aadil
Matt Roush: Can't quite tell if your main concern is quality or ratings, but my emphasis is almost always on the former, and by that standard, Arrow is by far the superior and more satisfying show, with a clearer focus, more dynamic action and character development....

Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) arrival in Starling City didn't just facilitate the introduction of the Flash on Arrow. It also sparked new feelings in Oliver (Stephen Amell) for his go-to gal Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). Fans have long waited for this working relationship to develop into something more, but will they actually take the next step?

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Wednesday's midseason finale of Arrow. Read at your own risk!]
The real big bad of Arrow's second season was finally revealed!
It turns out Sebastian Blood's (Kevin Alejandro) quest to make super soldiers is under the direction of Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). Sporting his infamous eye patch, Slade was seen in present-day Starling City, telling Brother Blood that he is determined to burn the vigilante's world to the ground. Why does he hate Oliver (Stephen Amell) so much after spending all that time with him on the island? Because, given a choice, Oliver instinctively saved Sara (Caity Lotz) over Shado (Celina Jade) on the island, much to the dismay of Slade, who had harbored feelings for Shado.
But that was the least of the action during Wednesday's midseason finale, which also featured Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) taking one giant leap to becoming the superhero we all know and love. What's next for him and the rest of Team Arrow? Executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti were on hand during a screening of the episode to tease what's next:

Being poisoned will be the least of Oliver Queen's worries when he discovers that Team Arrow let Barry Allen in on his big secret in order to save him. But for Barry (Grant Gustin), it's a dream come true as his suspicions about the vigilante known as the Arrow will be confirmed during Wednesday's Arrow (8/7c, The CW).

Barry Allen made his much-anticipated debut on Arrow last week, introducing the DC Comics character who fanboys know will someday become the superhero The Flash. The opening arc concludes in this week's episode (Wednesday at 8/7c on The CW), paving the way for a potential Flash series for next fall.
A deluxe if derivative wallow in crime awaits viewers of TNT's Mob City (Wednesday, 9/8c) a six-hour primer in film noir attitude from The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont that's as sleek as the brilliantine in "fixer" Milo Ventimiglia's impeccably styled hair. Saturated in neon hues and evocative shadows, this limited-run series (airing in two-hour blocks over three Wednesdays) is gorgeous to behold even when it lays on the noir trappings awfully thick.
Something speedy this way comes!
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will make his Arrow debut Wednesday (8/7c on The CW) for a two-parter that will cap off the show's fall run. Hailing from Central City, a pre-Flash Barry heads to Starling City to lend a hand with an investigation that will shed light on his own backstory, which is very similar to his origin story in the comics.

I am so excited for the 100th episode of The Good Wife! What can you tease? — Lisa
ADAM: It's fair to say that all bets are off when Alicia and Will face off in court over the last will and testament of Alicia's murdered client Matthew Ashbaugh (a "returning" John Noble). Just as it did last season, the case will bring up old memories — cough, outdoor sex — for both attorneys. Unfortunately, those steamy memories cause serious (sexual) tension when Will puts Alicia on the stand. And speaking of lust, Kalinda will take a roll in the hay with a new suitor.
Come on! Why doesn't The Blacklist just reveal that Red is Liz's dad? We're all thinking it, right? — Sean
