Interesting. Was he getting out of the Lazarus Pit or was that just a bath? :lol:

I thought it was just a bath but also a comic nod to the pit.

yeah, that was a half-assed offer. there was no way Neeson was going to be able to commit to filming a TV show over the course of the season. he is too busy with movies. that was never going to happen.

If he was coming out of the Lazarus pit he would have been insane for awhile.

I was more upset with Ra's just having stubble. I wanted something closer to his comic book grooming.

not a fan of roy's costume. too many buckles. makes him look less like a superhero and more like an extra on the pirates of penzance.

i love roy's response to an enemy, backflip off a car into a neck dart. maybe less with the cirque du soleil more with the fisticuffs next time?

thea, 1995 called and wants its overalls back. nice bippy top under it though.

laurel still on a diet of Noassatall.

every time det lance calls sara, i fear he will relapse when he finds out the truth. i am preemptively heartbroken.

unfamiliar with the comic or story, but love every minute of this show.

I didn't like Ra's. Didn't like his voice. Didn't like his look. Didn't like his rings.

Maybe he'll grow on me with more screen time.

Roy's attempt to protect Thea was so inept. Everyone on this show catches, dodges, or deflects arrows and Roy gets taken down in a second with a dart. Poor Roy.

:thumbsup: Loved the climatic fight scene with Ollie, Malcolm and Nyssa. really well choreographed.

Surprised they kept some continuity with The Flash episode having Felicity be MIA because she was on that show and then have her appear at the end after returning.

I'm sure we'll be seeing Nyssa again soon. Wouldn't be surprised if she has something to do with Laurel's training.

I thought this was classic Arrow, probably the best one this year, since I've blocked Sara's death in episode one from my mind.

I thought Barrowman was pretty meh as the Black Archer in season one but he's really taken a shine to the role this season. That was a great scene between him and Oliver, face to face.
