I missed it
Good episode. It was nice Oliver wanted to reconnect with his family on Christmas. I'm interested in the new archer I'm wondering were he became so good and why he's killing people on the list. Can't wait till the show returns.
Though not the best episode of Arrow, especially one serving as a mid-season finale, it still managed to get the job done and show us more twists. I'm excited for January!
Agreed Sa'ad702. That would be a poor direction for Arrow to go down. I'm sure (and I hope) there is more to come from Well Dressed Man - and we're seeing different layers peeled back with each appearance, so even if he does meet his ultimate fate, I get the sense it won't be for a while yet.
I see what you mean about Moira, but I think the her changing face is actually a sign of the conflict she's under - and even when we saw the cold and calculating aspect in episode 1, seeing Oliver back, and the impact of the choices she is making is playing a part in the conflict.
Twas a good episode but I felt that they are doing a disservice to Moira's character. In the premiere she was made to be this cold calculating woman who clearly was up to no good but then they tried to gain sympathy by making her out to be this woman who had to what was necessary for her family. Its a bit of a cop out. I would have been impressed if she was more involved in this master plan to re shape Starling City. That would have made more sense for me.
I also just hope they don't go the original spider man movie route where when Oliver kills The Dark Archer, Tommy witnesses it and then goes all dark to avenge his father. That would be just the worst!!!
Huge cast of characters, each getting their little snippets. Great to see island flashbacks, having taken a 2 episode break - wouldn't want to see them every week anyway. Wonder if we'll get a entire flashback episode to see some more of the historic events play out a little more.
Deathstroke is one scary guy! But Yao Fei seems to be his match.
Looking forward to the momentum being maintained for the second half of the season. Not really a poor episode since it started. Even Legacies, which was the probably one of the 'weaker' episodes showed some great development of Oliver's personality.
Hope more is done with Tommy and Laurel - it seems to be a bit of filler at the moment. Let's get that nightclub opened and see more of Tommy as a character central to Oliver's development. On the subject of Laurel - her dad. Hope Det Lance isn't mellowing! The scene where he turns to The Hood for help felt like it was played just right - not overly dramatic, and on the right side of Lance's desparation to do the greater good. I hope it doesn't become formulaic - detective who follows the rules turning to the vigilante to do the things he can't.
All in all a top class episode and sets us up for the second half.
Very good episode. For me, best one since the Deadshot episode. Getting to see more to Oliver's personality as he tries to bridge his two worlds. Don't want to see Digg become just the voice of reason for Oliver - let's see him move in from the periphery. Would definitely like to see an episode exploring his background, relationship with his brother and Carly.
Seeing Well-Dressed Man as the Dark Archer didn't come as a huge surprise. But great to see the reveal nonetheless, and it bodes well for more encounters between the two archers. Looking forward to Dark Archer "getting his" to use Digg's words.
Genuinely thought that Walter would be 'off-ed', but glad to see he wasn't.
Good to see Felicity on-screen again. Wonder if she'll be brought into Oliver's Scooby Gang. I think doing so would take away one of the good character interactions, but coming up with more and more original/creative reasons for Oliver to enlist Felicity's help may soon stretch the bounds of believability.
