Rating - 5 (out of 5): I feel bad. I gave the last one a 5. This should be a 6. I loved this episode because of all the cool character development, the backstory on characters we have missed, and the potential for some great story lines.
They really delivered well with Blue Beetle. They provided a nice condensed explanation to his origins and his relationship to Ted Kord. I have always viewed Blue Beetle as a second tier character but he has a lot of potential in this show. Jaime is great. His comedy kills me on the show.
I also liked how they really showed how alone Superboy feels. M'Gann has moved on along with everyone else to one degree or another. And he takes the burden on very poorly. He lashes out at others, but he's learning how to cope with these changes.
Also I'm loving the clone Roy story. He was so crushed and has wasted his life away. Even to the point of having a wife and a kid and he's just so gone. It was funny that his wife is Cheshire, I giggled a little. I love Red Arrow and am really looking forward to more.
The Wally/Artemis scene was great. Seeing them together melted my heart a little. I hope to see these characters that I grew to love so much a bit more.
I felt soooooo bad for the Golem once Blue Beetle was able to communicate with it... and then he was destroyed my Mr. Unknown.
I knew they would reveal what had happened in the last five years, and I really like that they are taking their time. It's well written and the dialogue is delivered well. I'm lovin' this.
Also I want to give a special shout out to Grey Delisle as A'Daire. She also provided the voice for Catwoman in Arkham City and Azula in Avatar the Last Airbender.
