Time of Death



A solid episode just got bumped up a notch with the final scene, one that left me with a big ass grin on my face. The moment we have all been waiting for finally takes place when Slade Wilson and Oliver come face to face. What made it even better is that it wasn't even something I was expecting to happen. There were no warnings or anything. So yeah....HELL YEAH! Can't wait to see the next episode and see where they go from here. As for the rest of the episode, I liked that this one was kinda about Felicity and how she is feeling a bit marginalized (in her own mind) with the rest of the group and their military background. Also of note was the casting of Robert Knepper as William Tockman / Clock King. I approve of this. We also (finally) get an answer to the relationship between Sin (Bex Taylor-Klaus) and Sara Lance / Black Canary. So, apparently Sin's father crashed on the Island and his dying breath was for Sara to look after her. There ya go.

Is Harley Quinn Coming to Arrow? - IGN Conversations

I would love to see Harley pop up on Arrow. It would make for a killer story arc. They just need to find the perfect actress to play the part and not just anyone that fits into the costume.

The Promise



This one was a long time coming. Any fan of the series obviously has been waiting to see how Oliver and Slade's friendship would turn to bitter enemies. We all knew Slade's motivation (being one royally p*ssed off dude upon learning that Ollie was "responsible" for Shado's death). But we have had to sit through a lot of back story and buildup for the inevitable face off. The entire episode is more flashback as we see the events leading up to Slade turning on his "friend".

We get a few punches thrown here and there, but the big beatdown doesn't happen.....not yet anyway. Slade takes over the ship and is running things on his own terms and he has Oliver locked up as his prisoner. Sara is now stranded back on the Island with a handful of prisoners that have escaped. That should be an interesting thing to see played out. The episode was solid, but we are going to have to wait a bit longer before we finally get to see THE fight between Ollie and Slade. One of the cooler things about how this episode was structured was seeing an out of control Slade completely losing it during the flashbacks, juxtaposed with current day scenes of a calm, cool and calculated Slade in the presense of the Queen family. We know he is dangerous and that's why the scenes work incredibly well.

Suicide Squad



The long awaited Suicide Squad episode came and went. I don't know if it's the CW's plan to do a spin-off of the Suicide Squad or not, but this episode definitely played like a backdoor Pilot for one. I've waited awhile for this episode, unfortunately it didn't meet my expectation of what I had hoped it would be. Even though it was cool to see Diggle in "command" of Deadshot, Bronze Tiger and Shrapnel, it just didn't feel like it was big enough to meet the hype. Also, "killing" off Shrapnel barely into the mission made the team even smaller. I for one don't even think for a second that he is dead. We never see it happen on screen. So, he will for sure return down the road. There was a lot of speculation as to whether or not the girl in one of the cells was Harley Quinn. We never "see" her beyond a silhouette, but hearing her voice, it's definitely HQ and I hope she makes a full appearance on Arrow sooner, rather than later.

Birds of Prey



   
Helena Bertinelli returns! That can only mean one thing: Smackdown! What could be better than The Huntress Vs Black Canary? Nothing hotter than two incredibly hot chicks dressed in leather, wearing mask, beating the crap out of each other. All in the name of fan service to the comic book characters. Yes, it was somewhat short, but it still was fun to see. What use to be a problem regarding secondary characters and now taking on leading role. So much so that it kind of feels like Arrow is being reduced to a secondary character himself. I wonder if they (shows writers, show runners) are gearing up for some kind of spin-off involving Black Canary, The Huntress, etc... We already know that The Flash is coming soon, but I hope that don't expand the universe too fast. Besides, I like having all these characters populating this show right now, even if Arrow doesn't get as much screen time.

Deathstroke



With a title like that, you damn well know that Slade Wilson is going to be front and center. Objective: Make Oliver Queen's life crumble all around him without even throwing a single punch. I wasn't expecting it to play out this way, but I'm glad that it was more psychological because he gives Slade a bit more depth as a strategist and instead of just a behemoth grunt. So in a nutshell, he basically tells Thea who her real father is, which alienates her from Oliver as he can't be trusted. Slade tells Laurel that Oliver is in fact Arrow and this is bound to have a rippling effect as well. But the biggest (if that wasn't it) play was basically stealing Oliver's Company from under him as we find out that  Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) has been working with Slade all along. With her as CEO now, I'm hoping we will see more of Summer from here on out. One thing I didn't really care for was Deathstroke's mask basically being a "Hockey Mask". I much rather see him wearing the "fabric" one...or whatever you would call it. It just looks cooler.

The Man Under the Hood



It seems that the writers of the show are doing everything they can to avoid any kind of epic showdown between Arrow and Deathstroke. I guess they are at least trying to save it for the Season Finale, because so far, all we have gotten is 'just a taste' in a couple of episodes, 2 in particular for this episode. As short as the fights have been, especially in Under the Hood, it was still damn good to see. I liked that DS dispatches of Arrow, Diggle and Canary pretty easily during the first fight. But it's what's coming next that has me pumped as DS is literally building himself an army of super soldiers using the same formula that gives him his strength. Now we can add Isabel Rochev to the army since she was seemingly shot and killed by Diggle at the end. But with her laying on the table, blood pouring from her eyes, it doesn't take much to deduce she will have the same power soon. Can't wait! Really enjoyed Laurel's story as she finally figures out" that Arrow and Ollie are one and the same, which also means she knows her sister is Black Canary too.

Seeing Red



This episode started out as nothing more than a filler episode as it's basically the gang tracking and trying to contain a rampaging Roy. I'm still not a fan of the actor playing the part. He's not a good actor. With that said, this was an average episode at best. But then the last 5 minutes happened, which completely....COMPLETELY changed the game in a way that I didn't see coming at all. First off, via flashback, we learn that Oliver got a chick pregnant. Big whoop, huh? Well, we come to learn that Moira (Ollie's mother) sent the girl out of town to convince Oliver that she miscarried and to lie about it. So, her big secret is that she has been hiding Ollie's kid from him for the past 7 years. In trying to repair her current family (Thea and Ollie), she decides she's going to tell him the truth. Only problem is the car gets sideswiped. Fade to black....

....regain consciousness. Moira, Thea and Oliver are bound. Slade Wilson stands over them in a scene very similar to what happened on the Island when Oliver had to choose between Sara or Shado. Now he must choose between Moira and Thea. Naturally the mother gives up her life to protect her children. But it was still shocking to see and the way in which she died (by sword) is going to be a scene that's talked about for quite some time. They gave her an epic death scene for sure. So, the secret of Oliver's child stays with Moira, but for how long? It will come to light eventually.
