  • When three became four.

    This was an important episode in the life of the show, as a new member is brought into "Team Arrow" in an unconventional manner. The case at hand was great, and seeing the Bronze Tiger back was certainly interesting and generated a good episode.

    Moira running for mayor - I can't imagine people voting for her, seems like the worst idea imaginable, but hey, if Blood's secrets surface, she might end up running unopposed, so you never know.

    I was kinda getting over Laurel this season, and then started getting into her role the last couple episodes, but after today, I just have to say how much I love Trainwreck Laurel - it's just glamorously fun to watch her crash and burn, and I can't wait to see her next move, especially after that impeccable conclusion!

    Really excited to see where the show goes next with Roy in tow - very exciting stuff ahead I'm sure!moreless
  • Stupid storyline

    Roy is probably the last person to trust with the secret, especially in his current state of mind. I'm getting tired of the Laurel storyline, also the most stupid storyline ever is Ollie's mom running for mayor of the city she destroyed. Where are all her voters going to come from? she couldn't even get guests to attend her Christmas party
  • Simply the Best

    Katie Cassidy never fails to give her character such life. She is an amazing actress and holds the show together. I'd like to see her as the black canary though, seems like the next step.
  • What an embarassing episode...

    The way they've written in Roy's state of mind is so predictable and overused as to be ridiculous. It was one of those moments where you just cringe in sympathy for the shame the writers must have felt after watching the actual episode itself.

    Really guys. Time for some thinking on the writing staff.
  • Suicide Squad in the making

    Okay, so this show knows how to abuse the wonderful universe that is DC and my oh my am I psyched to see what the remaining episodes of season 2 has to offer. The only dislike I hold atm (apart from the obvious disaster that is Laurel) is the fact that Roy is super strong, since in the comics he uses a bow and arrows (later guns, but that's another story) and so I don't see the point with that if he's going to be this powerhouse, if they do want to make that his thing ofc.

    Seeing Amanda Waller felt great and hey Bronze Tiger would make for an excellent edition in the Suicide Squad. I presume Deadshot has already been invited and maybe Malcolm Merlyn now that he's in exile, Huntress probably as well or they might be recruited at one point, in either case I'm super pumped and this is the weekly show that I look forward to the most (that says a lot since my list is pretty vast)!moreless
