* The Prosecution has to turn over all of it evidence in every state. So the ADA's "Drumpf Card" doesn't work, because if he didn't give it to the defense the charges would probably be dismissed. Oh, and coercion is not a legal defense for murder.

* For a normal politician, Marines guarding your event is quite enough. For Team Arrow, that's moronic. Why would any of them think Marines would have a chance against the literal warlock or his troops that you know are better than the Marines already? I feel like at least TRYING to get ARGUS to help would have been a better plan. [[/folder]

** Even if viewers can deal with different versions of the same character, it's just easier for them to have one version of each (except Barry, possibly because he would be the catalyst for any crossovers.)[[/folder]]

*** True, but why should we coddle viewers? If you wanna be a fan of superhero works, get that mental lube ready because you're in for a mindfuck. Depriving them of it is taking away the authentic comic book experience.

** Well, we know Harley Quinn was in ARGUS custody, that Bludhaven exists, Oracle exists and Talia is strangely not around the League anymore at all, and that Ra's has been looking for a new successor for a while now, yet Talia was never even considered despite Nyssa no longer being seen as fit for the job. So, what that implies is that Batman was active decades ago, fought the League until Ra's just gave up trying to get him to take over and Talia is with him or dead.

*** Only, it is clear here. We know you can punch him in the face. We know that the faster you punch someone in the face, the harder it hits. We know Barry can move so fast that you can't tell he just moved. So, we know that Barry can deliver a knockout blow and Damien has no way to block it, or else he'd be throwing up magical force fields against normal punches.

** Plus, it's not like Malcolm actually cares if he has to kill Sara again. He's got minions, he doesn't have to worry about her being a danger. So, if it goes to shit, he loses nothing. If it doesn't go to shit, he gains Thea and Laurel's gratitude and Sara literally owes him her life. In fact, it ended up with the solution to why the long dead shouldn't be brought back to life, which was an added bonus.

** They make non-alcoholic replications of alcohols. Why? I have no idea. But they do.



** During the Christmas party his tone when the marines doing guard duty are called "army" implies he was a marine. It's the same tone every marine has when you call them army.




to:

** Basically, they're a mercenary organization/cult that wants to save the world.




to:

** Additionally, Oliver Queen intentionally created many of these same problems for himself with his plan to get arrested back in Season 1, meaning that in the Arrowverse someone would have logically commented online at some point about this discrepancy, and at trial it would have seriously done damage to the case. In fact, there's literally no chance in hell Oliver would have been found guilty even after all of that, because Captain Lance taints it all. His personal vendetta and close relationship to Oliver would mean that no matter how strong the evidence was, the case would still fall apart on constitutional grounds. In fact, the same goes for Roy's case logically, only with the additional problem that the police captain that captured him doesn't believe he's the Arrow. And even then, he's still Oliver's sister's boyfriend, so the case is still tainted.

*** Plus Malcolm might be a dick, but he's not Slade Wilson or HIVE. There's no reason he should go crazy and kill everyone. The only time he did that he targeted only a section of the city and only because he thought it would fix the city. It's not like he was Ra's or Slade, who wanted to destroy the entire city. Wait a minute. Why the hell was him destroying The Glades a problem with the League? Apparently to become Ra's you're supposed to destroy the place you come from. So logically, if Malcolm had become Ra's the normal way, he would have destroyed MORE than just The Glades. So... what the hell?

*** The entire claim is idiotic. Strip the Assassin naked, do an X-Ray to make sure nothing is stored in their butt, and have there be no exit to the cell at all (like by building it around them) and/or make sure it's nearly inaccessible, like in space or the bottom of the ocean or Antarctica. Lian Yu is a terrible choice. As far as anything has suggested, it's entire "security" is that it's a dangerous island. Oh and one guard. Brilliant. How about 20 armed A.R.G.U.S. agents around that manhole cover 24/7? At the very least, that would prevent a prisoner from escaping on their own. Having some sort of Naval blockade and monitoring of the airspace would be good too. Or hell, rig the island to explode so that if say an army comes to bust someone out you can just blow them the hell up. Or again just put it somewhere harder to access.
