  • Great Finale

    9.0
    At least we got the awesome battle we were waiting for nice that the League of Shadows (Assassins) helped Arrow and his crew. I am not quite what the point of bringing Archer back was it just a excuse to do something with Thea character, the whole Roy relationship was starting to drag. At least Canary out of the picture now that dimple thing and the relationship with arrow was a bit repetitive. So for every year of the season repeating the every year oliver was on the island , so I we going to have three more seasons to catch up ? I will miss Slade Wilson Manu Bennett great actor playing roles that are more one dimensional!moreless
  • Poor Felicity

    9.5
    Great end to the season. Poor Felicity, all her dreams came true only to find out it was part of a bait plan. wondering if Thea will become a bad guy! Can't wait to find out what happens to Laurels dad, that was a shocker.
  • How Can I?

    7.5
    how can I watch this episode without buying it?
  • Yay. Oliver's baby lives.

    9.0
    I thought there must be something sinister about Oliver's baby flashbacks. I thought that Slade had found Oliver's child and was planning to use it in his final act of revenge. I guess that those flashbacks were mainly for Moira and for another story line down the road. Introducing Oliver to his child in the big showdown finale would have been pretty cool, but having Felicity save the day was just awesome.moreless
  • full on action

    9.5
    This episode pulls out all stop with a lot of action.

    Great was the last fight with Slade, which was intercut with the fight with Slade in the flashback, which made for a dizzling experience, but also showed how Oliver has developed in the meantime. This time he make a different decision and doesn't kill Slade, but captures him

    This is especially important in the light that almost all of his allies have been trying to convince him to kill Slade. And they almost had convinced him. But then Felicity put him back on the right path.

    Felicity is really the best. She was his conscience in the scene where she brought him back from the decision to kill Slade. And she was so brave when she let herself be captured by Slade ( good plan, I almost believed for a second that Olliver was really declaring his love for her, but then thought, no, he wouldn't put a woman he loves on the sidelines, there must be a plan behind this). She was seemingly terrified, but managed to deliver the deciding blow, that is real bravery.

    I am all for team Oliver and Felicity together ( nice simmering scene on the island beach at the end with them both, you see the potential for these two even though they themselves don't want to think about this yet, but we as viewers can hope).

    We finally see Sara go, but did she have to metaphorically give the mantle to Lauren? Help! I hope she doesn't get combat training in the next series and becomes the new canary.

    Also, please don't let her father die. He finally became Arrow's ally and is also a strong personality ( in contrast to his daughters). It would be really bad to loose him.

    Even though Thea wrote to Roy that she won't be back, I can't quite believe it. She will probably be trained by Daddy dearest ( she really shot him and that actually made him proud, what a father). There is only the question if she will be one of the good guys or the bad ones.

    Why did they have Olliver loose all his money ( I can understand loosing the control of his company, but shouldn't he have some personal money, like a trust fund ( good rich parents would set something like this up). I can't quite understand this development)? With all his gadgets and the secret lair, I cant' quite see how he can be the Arrow and have a nine to five job.

    The ending really surprised me. He actually got of the island and now the woman from Argus has him in her clutches. I was expecting him to end up with Anatolie. Lets see how this story develops in the next season.
