arrow-the-fallen

Finding Thea (Willa Holland) near death with no hope of recovery other than a dip in the Lazarus Pit, Oliver (Stephen Amell) leads his team back to Nanda Parbat where he chooses to trade his life for that of his sister. Teased a few episodes back, the full introduction of the Lazarus Pit opens the door the the mystical and magical side of the DCU which (other than Constantine) the TV universe has been slow to develop. Keeping with the comics, the Pit renews life but also introduces a temporary madness within those it saves (a madness which has become more permanent for Ra’s given the number of dips he’s taken over the years). “The Fallen” refuses to give us an exact age of Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), but based on various conversations it’s obvious he’s looking forward to retiring after leading the League of Assassins for a very long time.

August Richards) in a Three’s Company plot device designed to kick-in at the exact wrong moment, view a sequence of perplexing events completely out of context, and lead to a misunderstanding.

Haunted by dreams he believes are tied to his missing two months Castle (Nathan Fillion) enlists the help of Beckett‘s (Stana Katic) old psychiatrist Carver Burke (Michael Dorn) to help make sense of the images involving jungle warfare, chase sequences, and a heroic hero bearing a resemblance to one of the author’s favorite action stars (Mark Sivertsen). With Castle chasing breadcrumbs down the rabbit hole, Alexis (Molly C. Quinn), Martha (Susan Sullivan), Beckett, Ryan (Seamus Dever), and Esposito (Jon Huertas) all become concerned on their friend’s growing obsession – especially when more reasonable explanations for some of the imagery of his dreams come to light.

By the end of the episode one character will be saved, one will be dead, and Emma (Jennifer Morrison, who from the looks of things spent her time between takes sniffing large amounts of glue) will have taken a large step on a dark path the season has been teasing us about for several episodes.

backstrom-i-like-to-watch

The death of a performance artist leads Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) into a world of suspects he’s even more dismissive of than usual. The leading suspects in the case turn out to be the victim’s ex-girlfriend (Ever Carradine) who Backstrom nearly mounts during her web-televised life in a plastic box, after surprisingly finding common ground and a mutual attraction, and Valentine‘s (Thomas Dekker) former lover (Ray Santiago) making closing the case a little trickier than usual.
