    I loved it
  • Will Sarah be alive and turn out to be the Black Canary?

    8.0
    I think that is a real possiblity. The canary belonged to Sarah, perhaps she washed up on the terrible island too and learned how to take care of herself. It would be really interesting to see how Oliver and Laurel would react to Sarah being alive again.

    Dead to Rights was a superbly entertaining episode of Arrow. I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of character and plot developement. It was intriguing to see the action and drama unfold along with suspense and surprises. I liked how everything played out and I certainly look forward to watching what happens next! !!!!!!!!!
  • Doctor Who meets the Arrow

    9.5
    A big thank you to all the people involved with the series, I love it. However, I can only assume, that another old favorite from the 60's - Doctor Who - will be delayed, if not cancelled, along with it's off shoot - Torchwood, as you have pinched the major actor's from them. Now, do I expect to see David Smith popping up? Somehow, I just can't seem to get my head around a 2 timing female timelord with a wizard - The Dresden Files.



    On a different matter - Happy 46th Birthday John for the 11th March ;)moreless
  • Laurel's sister maybe alive and kicking!

    Another great episode. Malcolm, the head of the underground organization should have been eliminated no thanks to the arrow. Then again he is vital to the story. Laurel's mother saying that her sister maybe still alive... Am I thinking the Black Canary? This is getting interesting..

      Oliver: Yeah?
      Slade: We could build ourselves a boat like they did on Gilligan's Island.

    • Malcolm: I'm being honored by the Starling City Municipal Group. They're honoring me with their annual humanitarian award.
      Tommy: What, they ran out of actual humans to give it to?

      Tommy: I try not to. It just keeps happening.
