When Carter and Kendra have a short exchange, it's in Greek but the translation doesn't make proper sense. He asks "Katalavaineis?"="do you understand?" and she answers "Dechomai"="I accept", not "I do". The only context in which that would translate as "I do" is as a response to a marriage proposal, so it's clear it was translated automatically and not by a person. In Greek there's no such response as "I do" in that context, only "yes". See more »


Barry Allen: Savage may be immortal, but he's not a God.
Malcolm Merlyn: No, but he's the next best thing.

I was expecting an episode of Arrow
5 March 2016 | by edummyahjSee all my reviews

I was expecting an episode of Arrow which would continue the story line from the previous week.

What I was actually watching was some idiots idea that it would be great to do a crossover episode(s), I assume that there was an equivalent episode on that other series, the mindless and pointless attempt to convert a second rate comic book character to a TV show.

Since I do not watch the flash I quickly became quite bored, after the initial confusion. Thankfully the 1st commercial break soon came and I took the opportunity to switch the TV off. Who would have thought that commercial breaks would be so useful..

I had to score this 1 as it just wasn't really anything to do with the Arrow series, I would have preferred to give it 0 but I can't seem to find a way to this.
