  • Spectacular.

    The great episode we had last time was propelled further forward this time round with major developments in a series of storylines and all of them being related this Slade debacle in one way or another.



    That Isabel woman - I was so excited and happy when she died, completely over the moon, so the ending of this episode for me has to be the worst episode ending in Arrow history. I hate Isabel, a very uncompelling character.



    Aside from that though, the rest of the episode was fascinating. Loved Laurel's little crusade, although I really wish that chat with Oliver wasn't interrupted... ugh.moreless
  • At first I thought Thea was being such a spoiled brat

    9.0
    At first I thought Thea was being such a spoiled brat, then when Oliver wanted to meet her for a chat and arranged to meet her at night down a dark alley, I thought, no, she has a point, he clearly puts a chat about money above her safety. A chat in a private room in the club would have been better. Great episode though.

    Those camera's Slade planted a while back seem forgotten. The writers could have worked that in this episode with the meeting Moira had about shifting company shares, and gotten Isabel to act on it and really screw the Queen's over.

    How did Laurel know to be outside Star Labs? She was out there even before the break-in was report to internal security?

    No one thought of making a Mirakuru cure in an earlier episode extracting Roy's blood? They could have possibly stopped/cured Slade and Roy, but then we'd also not have many more episodes after we can put off that cure.moreless
  • Arrow vs. Slade coming to a denouement

    9.0
    Great episode carrying the Slade story along with some new revelations. I didn't catch all of the previous episode so there were a couple of things I might not have been aware of previously revealed. But the major items were of course the action scenes between the team and/or Oliver and Slade, Laurel's recognition of who the Arrow is and reaction to it, the Arrow finally getting a good hit on Slade, Thea's pissed off reactions to everything, Roy's joining with Slade, and on and on... I am assuming this season is going to finish up the revenge thing with Slade so it is going to be interesting to see how this all plays out but getting to the resolution is a bunch of fun.moreless
  • I Love Team Arrow

    9.5
    Wow this was a awesome episode I loved seeing Team Arrow back in action and working together as a true family and unit



    Poor Thea I felt really bad for her I truly hope she comes around soon



    I also enjoyed Laurel learning of her sister and Oliver's respective secrets she handled them pretty well



    What Slade did was incredibly violating I hope that Oliver goes after him so hard soon



    I am super psyched for next week to see what Team Arrow's next move is!moreless
