The last episode I was like finally! No more Bratva and archery training with Talia Al Ghul? Sounds dope! Nope now it's like both timelines are going to Russia.

Ragman was powerful enough to take a nuke pointblank and was not used how someone that powerful would be. Of course it burned up it's power.....for now.

See ya Ragman....for now.

Not enough Talia Al Ghul in this episode. This was mainly to help give Diggle closure to his frame up storyline.

Go figure that Oliver's new nosy girlfriend figured out that he's the Green Arrow.

The flashbacks are practically caught up to just before Oliver returned to Star City in the series premiere 5 years ago. I guess they're done after this season.

I was surprised they even attempted Ragman on a TV budget. That is a character screaming for a movie appearance in Batman.

Spawn's visuals ripped off a lot of Ragman's powers.

I'll be honest, Oliver's time in Russia doesn't interest me. I'm just happy we are nearing the end of flashbacks.

I just wish the new Canary's introduction had been a little smoother. Why couldn't she have been inspired by Laurel's Black Canary instead of that convoluted backstory?

Finally catching up on Arrow. So, now we get this new Black Canary using the original Dinah Drake name from the original Earth 2 version?

I hope we don't get an Arrow Damien with Talia showing up.

Ragman was more powerful than the whole team combined. It didn't make much sense to have him on the team if they weren't going to use him.
