Muse Of Fire



Muse Of Fire was more of a set up for Oliver and Helena (Jessica De Gouw) and their relationship. Helena by the way plays the Huntress, another "vigilante", much like Arrow, dishing out her own brand of justice. The episode as a whole was pretty good, even if it was pretty light on action sequence compared to what we have been getting weekly from the series. Even the two fight scenes we do get here weren't ones that you are going to remember a week from now. I think they needed to take a breather if you will and set up their relationship as they did and give the actors and the characters room to connect so that their union will have deeper meaning rather than some random hookup. I thought Jessica did a great job here. Looking forward to more from her character. Kelly Hu made a tiny cameo, returning as China White.

Vendetta



I think the writers dropped the ball on this one. This should have been all about Huntress and her new costume. But whatever momentum that was building up with the character, it would always get derailed with Tommy and his sob story about being being and needing a job. I've never liked the character thus far this season, but in this episode it was too much. I wouldn't object to the character being written off the show.

Year's End



With the arrival of a copy-cat 'Hood' terrorizing the city and killing off people also on Oliver's list, it immediately starts you running through a list of names of who it could be. Sure, I thought of people like the Island 'Mentor', Deathstroke, Tommy. Hell, I even threw Felicity into the mix, all within minutes of his debut on screen. But ultimately I settled on Malcolm (Tommy's father) and sure enough, I was right. Pretty good episode. I still think they need to end the whole Laurel and Tommy "romance" which is becoming more and more of a thorn in the show's side. Mine too.

The other good thing about this episode was the return of the flashbacks. More shenanigans going on, on the Island. More Deathstroke.

Burned



Meh. A filler episode that focuses on Oliver contemplating retiring the Green Arrow now that he's got something to lose. It's a crisis episode that has an ending that everyone can seen coming. The "monster" in this one is a disgruntled Fireman. Yup. Eye-rolling fo sho.

Trust But Verify



Pretty big twist at the end when it's revealed that Oliver's Island mentor is in fact one of the bad guys. Well, that's what we are being led to believe as I don't know if this is a major plot in the world of the Green Arrow Comic. Anyway, it does make for great TV and nothing can be better than a twist you don't see coming. I wish they were do a whole episode on the Island rather than bits and pieces.

Vertigo



It was cool to see Seth Gabel pop up as The Count, the manufacturer of the new designer drug known as Vertigo. Not sure how the character is portrayed in the comic, but I did find it a bit odd in how over the top "deranged" the character was in this episode. I guess because of how subdued Seth was on Fringe, seeing him all crazy here was a bit startling. Overall, the episode was just okay. Still wish they would give us more Island stuff faster though.

Betrayal



I can suspend my belief for a lot of things, especially in the Superhero Genre, but there as some things that defy any kind of logic and in the case of Arrow, it has to do with Oliver remaining anonymous. I find it beyond ridiculous that both Laurel and her father, standing less than a foot away from the "Hood" in a well lit scene with only half his face covered with his hoodie can't recognize him for who he is. Lame. Anyway, I did like the ending when the Green Arrow crashes through the window to confront his Mom. That's a cliffhanger you don't normally see.
