    I am a hard guy to get a 10 out-of but Arrow gets a 10 despite some misgivings because they dealt with really tough issues head-on.

    When Diggle brings Oliver to heal "you have a narrow definition of being a hero" and declares that there is more than one way to fix the cities problems then he is the one shooting straight and true.

    This is backed up by the dream sequences and yet at the same time other plot elements are moved forward e.g. romance and distance.

    Sure, there wasn't as much action as usual but even in this area there were some interesting introductions e.g. the "trick arrows" that hit and then secure items e.g. cash bags.

    It's great that Diggle is exactly as they agreed - a partner rather than a side-kick and that Oliver listens to him.

    Yup - I really liked this episode because it was cleverly and properly written, acted and directed - as fan-tare TV goes it hit all the sweet spots.
