Like the QUICK cameo of FLASH along with Captain Singh.

Also the reveal of Tina with the screaming voice made me feel more at ease if/when she takes on the mantel of Black Canary.
Nice nod to the comics.

at the Flash cameo

It was a good episode and new origin story for the new Black Canary. Clever that her name is Dinah Drake.

Also I liked seeing Lexa Doig as Talia Al Ghul. She really can pass as Katrina Law's sister. Looks like she's the one who molded Oliver into the Green Arrow.

If they ever brought back The Avengers she'd be a perfect Emma Peel.

the Flash "cameo" was great.

that fight scene with Oliver and the gun was straight out of John Wick

Thought the same thing about the fight scene. I was thinking that the director/choreographer must have just seen John Wick prior to shooting.

Really enjoying this season. Just seems to be flowing much better without the couples drama.

Well it's a good sign that Oliver has more chemistry with this Black Canary then he ever did with Laurel. Didn't mind how she got her powers. Thought her screaming when the particle accelerator went off over her lovers body was a nice touch. Feels like the cast is getting too big though. It's been what four episodes since Thea or Lance were on the show?

They are also really upping their stunt game this season. The fight on the roof and Ollie's fight with the gun were great. Really liking Lexa Doig also. I would never guess that it's her.

Nice to see Big Belly Burger resurface after a hiatus too.

Great episode. Finally a flashback that was worth watching. They also finally have a black canary that will not make the audience cringe every time she makes an appearance.

I was thinking the same thing during the fight scene. That stuntman as Green Arrow was performing some of the most daring stunt work I've seen on television the past few years.

I didn't think it was her until I realized the English accent was fake.
