I’m not getting into the long brainwashing thread on tumblr because I still haven’t seen season two of LoT because no dvds yet, but:

The League of Assassins uses drug assisted brainwashing on recruits, specifically seen in the way Ra’s Al Ghul trains Ollie, which includes a sort of test where they kill their conscience, hallucinate facing a loved one as their victim and still killing them (Arrow 3x21). Darhk and Merlyn both came out of that tradition and have both used drugs to reshape loyalty pretty routinely. Darhk had a whole lot of HIVE followers taking yellow pills. Merlyn used vitura on his own daughter, which made her kill Sara (3x09), then used Darhk’s recipe on her later (4x22).

Basically if they recruit someone and *don’t* brainwash them it would take work to get an in character justification for modifying their usual m.o.





And this sort of discussion would be so much simpler with threaded comments.

I still don't understand why fandom isn't primarily here any more.

Yep yep yep. Also, while Eobard has no canonical background of actively brainwashing, he *did* manipulate, gaslight, and coerce Barry in many ways.

None of those three acquire allies, especially subordinate allies, without trying to warp their minds.

Likewise. I just don't *get* Tumblr.

Tumblr has the single worst commenting system I have seen ANYWHERE.

Which is why I only use mine to reblog memes & gif sets. Talking to people is impossible.
