Episode 20
The Fallen




As expected, Oliver surrenders and agrees to Ra's al Ghul's terms if he will save Thea via the Lazarus Pit. Somewhat predictable, but still entertaining to see play out. What I didn't see coming and should have, was Felicity and Oliver finally getting together. Even though the moment was genuine for her, it came with an ulterior motive and that was to drug and help him escape. It was all for naught as Oliver refuses to leave and takes his "rightful" place there. Now this is where the show gonna get reeeeeeally fun to watch because I don't have a f*cking clue how he is going to get out of this.

Episode 21
Al Sah-Him




Meh. Was really looking forward to this one and it felt flat and somewhat redundant. It's taking too much from the Dark Knight playbook. Everything about it was basically ripped from the films. They are taking this too far in the doom and gloom route. Granted, Arrow has always been a dark character, but it had some levity to it. This episode was just.....laying it on a bit too thick. I'd be okay with it if they didn't basically use this episode to pad out the storyline. The big twist is that Oliver and Nyssa al Ghul are being forced to wed. Other than that, the entire episode was just aimless.

Episode 22
This Is Your Sword




This show is all about twist and turns, but even I don't know how or what Oliver is going to do to explain away releasing the Virus, purposely exposing Diggle, Felicity, Merlyn and Laurel. Sure, we are even shown beforehand that Oliver and Merlyn have been working in secret together to take down the League of Assassins. I even suspect Merlyn's betrayal to be part of the ruse. But I can't figure out how or when or who even administered the inoculation to all of them prior to the release of the virus. Really cool to finally see Tatsu Yamashiro as Katana in all her glory.

Episode 23
My Name Is Oliver Queen




As I suspected, everyone was inoculated before being exposed to the virus, thus saving them from being infected. Yes, it's a cheat, but it's expected. As for the showdown between Oliver and Ra al Ghul, it was decent. It was nowhere near the epic showdown between Oliver and Deathstroke last season. I will say that I was somewhat surprised that they actually had Oliver kill off Ra al Ghul, even if it was expected. Loved seeing Felicity wearing the ATOM suit. Interesting twist at the end showing Merlyn as the new Ra al Ghul. Was kind of hoping to see him resurrect Sara in the Pit as the cliffhanger. It would have been appropriate given Nyssa was right there and would have been the ultimate peace offering to secure her loyalty. Anyway, Oliver "retiring" from Arrow is not going to happen. Duh. Nice to finally see Thea as  Speedy become a characters on the show, using Roy's old Red Arrow costume. Overall, a solid Season Finale.
