This episode was freaking awesome!!!

Sarah-silva

To quote Stephen Ammell himself he said this was the "holy sh*tballs" episode, and that it was!
Such a fantastic hour! I was convinced that Malcolm would die but he must have known something was up, why else was he wearing a bullet proof vest. However he still would have died from the poison had Olvier not been there.
I was not that shocked though when he revealed himself to Tommy. That makes 3 that know his secret, that is almost too many, however I think it is a good thing as now he does not have to hide the goings on in the basement of the club from Tommy any more.
I did gasp when Malcolm opened up his secret lair though but it closed before Tommy could see.
I am liking Felicity more and more.
I totally missed the canary reference! I wonder if Laurel will be Black Canary or if Sarah is alive and she is Black Canary.

I don't like Laurel and would rather Felicity be Black Canary.

The Island that is owned by somebody else.. I think it is Moira or Malcolm.

I hope I am not the only one but i really didn't want Malcolm to die, he is a fun character with a shady past that we have yet to discover. It would have been a shame if he died, Thank god he didn't! But will Moira finish the job?

How stiff Oliver is when he is in costume just bugs the shit outta me

Thompson turned in a very good performance. I loved her face when she was looking at Tommy while Malcolm was giving his speech. Poor kids - each has a parent trying to kill the other's parent. Could cause conflict between the boys. I hope Tommmy doesn't go Harry Osborne, but it's worth pointing out that Harry only donned the mask once as a villain, and the other times as a hero. At least, that's what I read - haven't read the actual comic issues from then.

I feel so bad for the "kids" sometimes. Oliver tries to put back together/mend fences for Tommy and Thea and their parents, but both their parents are killing people (directly or indirectly). They might have been better off without the relationships.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the long-term effects on Tommy and Oliver's relationship, and cautiously optimistic about the Sarah revelation, the Malcolm/Moira effects, and Digg finding out his brother's killer is alive.

The Tommy revelation was fantastic. I'm still hoping against hope he doesn't go bad. I loved his reaction. He told Lance he knew nothing. He acknowledged Oliver as saving his father's life. But he's also upset that Oliver lied to him, was never going to tell him. He, according to Oliver, always trusted Oliver. But Oliver didn't trust him, and never planned to tell him. And that affects Tommy deeply. But Oliver's still his boss, and I hope their friendship withstands and things turn out well between them.

Now Tommy and Laurel will have more dishonesty between them (could play out as good drama or bad, IMO). And Tommy knows about his father's fighting ability. He doesn't know that's relevant at the moment, but it'll be interesting to see how it plays out if he ever does. He's the one that knows Oliver and Malcolm are both capable of killing in a matter-of-fact manner. I can't see him being okay with Dad's plan, but right now he doesn't know the plan.

I'm hoping Sarah turns out not to be alive. But the family drama of them hoping she's alive, believing she could be alive, could be great. It's actually very logical for one of them (probably Laurel) to ask Oliver for more details on exactly how Sarah died, because then they can know better if it's even a possibility that she's alive (presuming they don't think Oliver's lying).

Hey, I don't like McKenna/Oliver, Huntress/Oliver, or Felicity/Oliver as a pairing. And while I accept Laurel/Oliver as meant-to-be per comic history, they don't do a lot for me, either. Although I'm not actively against them like I am the others. I more enjoy seeing Tommy/Laurel, because it's good character stuff for Tommy (I like him) but won't shed tears when that ends, so long as they remain friends. I don't like Roy, either. I have nothing against Carly/Digg, but I'm not really engaged by them, either. I could ship Tommy/Thea, but not for at least a year or two from now. I do like seeing them interact. Actually, I think my favorite pairing is probably Moira/Walter (great interaction as he learns more, doesn't trust her, etc. - really engaging for me). But not liking a ship does not mean a person must be pulling for an alternative ship.

"I hope that some of that self defense training takes. Maybe then she can build some techy sonic weapon and become the Black Canary, and Dinah Laurel Lance can go die in a "tragic" car accident or something."

LOL

You haters never seem to amaze, does hate drive you so much to come up with stupid theories, grasp so much on straws. Dinah Laurel Lance = Black Canary deal with it. Your hypocrisy and selfishness is shameful. You are envious that Dinah Laurel lance has something cool for herself, she made Black canary cool, its hers and her legacy. No this alter ego doesn't belong to your pet favorite, she is awesome you say, so whats the problem.

Btw I like Felicity, she actually is cool as she is. Too bad some people arent satisfied with who she is, and think she needs to be someone else, something else.
