So you know how (one of) Arrow's problem is that it really wants to be Batman
This first episode of the Elseworlds crossover having Superman in the team (Tyler still knocking it out of the park BTW) made me realize that having Arrow and Flash start with their origin stories and try to be TV Batman and Superman before they got the rights still gave them a chance to do them right (by that I mean do Batman and Superman right). They're not fucking up Superman because they don't have to write over 20 episodes a year around him and risk having some major failures.
Long story short, seeing this Superman next to Flash made me think, when Batwoman works well enough to finally have Batman show up, but not as a leading role, maybe they'll finally do him right, just like how Superman shows up in Supergirl a few times here and there and nails it, because they don't have to actually put his character on the line and question his personality ever five minutes. The real Superman and Batman will already be the experienced, legendary figures that everyone looks up to in their respective universe, not scrawny idiot kids "discovering who they are" (looking at you too Gotham) (but Flash is still fine).
And Green Arrow is just the sacrificial lamb and it'll never recover, because who even knows what comic book Green Arrow is like anyway.
(oh and that trailer for the final season of Gotham was fucking awful, glad it's finally dying)
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
