Well didn't expect that reveal at the end, but it only further solidifies my original assumption from before that Prometheus already knew GA's identity without Church telling him.

I am wondering if they doing similar thing with Artemis as they did in Young Justice. She was sort of a traitor, but only because her father was Sportsmaster and sister was Cheshire.

Boy didn't see that ending coming. Thought that Vigilante was incredibly well done. Nice combination of the Adrian Chase and most recent Vigilante from the comic book. I also like how they are treating him somewhat like The Punisher and Oliver has a Punisher/Daredevil type relationship with him.

Also really enjoying Dolph Lundgren and after the flashbacks not meaning a damn the last two seasons, it's nice to have them be good again.

Holly cow did Evelyn look hot in that dress. I know the actress is 20 in real life, but even I felt a little purvey looking at her.

So will they have another DA become a masked avenger? Or is he a red herring?

Sure seems like that is what they were implying but could be a bait and switch.

Arrow's been bringing it this season.

And Artemis in that dress...

Like Firestorm in LoT, Ragman is under-used. He should be able to take out all the villains single-handed.

I liked the exchanges between Thea and Quentin- probably one of the best of the series.

Interesting reveal with Artemis at the end.

Really liked the scenes with Thea and Quentin. Blackthorne has done a great job playing a character battling depression and alcoholism. With the crossover coming up and Sara coming back to 2016, I wonder if he will get a chance to see her even though he's in rehab.

Creatively Arrow has made a pretty strong comeback after the mess of last season.

So how long before that reporter he's dating discovers that Oliver is the Green Arrow?

Knowing Oliver he'll probably invite her to the Arrowcave for drinks.

The subplot with the reporter is the only thing I DON'T like this season. I hope it goes somewhere, and soon.

Good episode except for staging that makes it appear Vigilante can teleport. Especially when wired/bound to the pillar.

It is just really hard for me to get past Josh Segarra's performance in Sirens. Every time I see Adrian Chase on screen all I can think of is Theresa's partner Billy.

I'm still wondering who braids Mr Terrific's hair when they get suited up. Braiding hair like that ain't know 2 min effort...

He probably developed some nanobots that can do it quickly for him.

It's so obvious that it's the DA that I'm hoping it isn't. My random guess is the female reporter. Completely masked, voice modulator, Oliver has a relationship with her that could be a Catwoman/Batman type thing. Just my random guess.

So is another Black Canary going to show up? They're drawing this thing out.

Ending scene sort of reminded me of the "Judas Contract" from the NEW TEEN TITANS by Wolfman and Perez.

If not that storyline, think YOUNG JUSTICE season 2.
