    • Simply epic.

      This was the most sensational finale imaginable, as the Undertaking appears on the horizon, setting up a whole host of intense confrontations and scenes with many lives on the line.



      Tommy's death - I am happy to see him go. I lost interest in him after he started blindly following a man he hated for so long. However, today he was absolutely spectacular, and he went out a hero, and I was really happy that it played out that way.



      I am so excited to see where the story goes next - this was just spectacular and I can't wait to see what Season 2 will bring!moreless
    • My heart died with Tommy

      9.0
      This series has been playing on my emotions like a toy, but still I can't help but love it every episode more and more. Tommy is my hero. I liked him from that moment I started to watch this series and I think part of me died when he died. He was just so... awesome? No, a m a z i n g! And I'm gonna miss him like hell!

      Don't get me wrong, I love Oliver too!moreless
    • Right now Detective, It needs YOU!

      Loved this episode. Must have watched it 10 time. Detective Lance gets his moments in this episode. Loved the moment when Ollie "the Arrow" tells the detective the city needs him and when Diggle says "I doubt it, You'll be too dead" This was an emotion, action packed episode. Episode is aptly named. Sacrifice, both mentioned verbally and shown physically. Mentioned 1st by Malcolm "what are you willing to sacrifice" 2nd by Felicity when she makes that speech to detective Lance about the vigilante sacrificing a lot for the city 3rd when Lance speaks to the Lieutenant about sacrificing catch the arrow to save lives 4th Ollie mentions it twice when speaking with his mom about his dad sacrificing his life so Ollie can live and his mom sacrificing 1000s of people in his name 5th when fyers askes Ollie whether he is willing to sacrifice his freedom. "Guess So" To see several people willing to sacrifice their lives to save the city and other people. The music was great. It was put together with the action perfectly especially at those special moments.

      Then there are the idiots who wants to steal some stuff before they leave the area? or hey let's saves some ... guess they needed a way to kill off Tommy's character. But then he could have probably made it out if he didn't waste those precious seconds telling laurel that he loved her.

      And why is this all happening, other than it is a great story, making it a great merlyn wants revenge for his wife's hey if he didn't ignore her call she could have been saved.

    • Laurel bascically killed Tommy

      9.5
      Her incredible stupidity in ignoring all the warnings from her Dad and Oliver catalyzed the death of Tommy. Who runs around in an earthquake retrieving files?
    • HERO never die

      9.5
      Hero never die .but poor people always die for nothing (oh I forget they always die for women)
