  • Olly tell mom the truth!

    9.0
    I still don't understand why Oliver didn't just say to his mom, "hey Mom, I was on the island with that Slade guy and he's nuts, you're better staying clear of him"
  • I don't get it

    Did I skip things? I don't remember Slade loving Shado, at all. It was always Oliver who loved Shado, then Sara came and there was hardly any relationship moments between any of them on the island.



    Slade has been so full of hate for Shado's death and blames Oliver for killing her, and it just seems strange to me. I've seen every episode, so it must be the writers leaving open plot holes.moreless
  • Sorry...

    3.0
    I thought this episode was slow and poor. I mean the acting was a little behind the mark and hope these few characters step it up a notch
  • My god... what an episode!

    Oh my god... this was awesome.

    Did`nt feel like a tv show... Felt like a complete action movie start to finish. Amazing!!! Tried to find a fault... failed!! This was brilliant!

    And, The Vampire Diaries think why Arrow has defeated them in ratings all for the past 3 months... Well i`ll give them some hints - Watch this episode and every episode of the Arrow, right from season one, Then try to find if they have any Teenage drama or Repeat button that they press when they run out of ideas!!

    The hell with the vampire diaries.. their ratings are falling and for good reason.



    The Arrow just hit their Vampire-ism and killed it!!moreless
  • I thought I was going to be disappointed! I was left wanting

    I thought it was going to grate because I am not a fan of the island flashback scenes. However this episode is in my recollection the best Arrow I have yet seen. Everything in this episode simply worked. I was left wanting more particularly exactly when Slade loses his eye. Great end scene lets see what comes next...
