Arrow is on tonight. The mid-season finale. Already.
Quentin Lance is kidnapped by Black Siren and Cayden James, who are looking to trade Lance's life for a weapon of mass destruction. Oliver and Team Green Arrow must figure out a way to save Lance while still keeping the city safe
Even though this is the episode of the Olicity wedding for friends and family .... we're onto you, Arrow. The mid-season finale two years ago was an engagement and then shooting Felicity. And last year it was Laurel back from the dead (Die, Laurel, die!). So, I'm expecting a horrible, shocking ending to leave us hanging for weeks until they come back later in 2018. Arrow doesn't like us to be happy for too long.
Also started reading YEAR ONE by Nora Roberts. 1st of a (usual) trilogy.
It began on New Year’s Eve.
The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive. In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain. The end has come. The beginning comes next.
Published 2017; 432 pages. I was hoping it was going to be a straight dystopian story which is something Roberts has never done before but it has gone paranormal. It's not the best of her stuff but I'll give it a big longer.
Have a good day!
