Yeah he explicitely stated a couple of episodes back that he did not spend the whole 5-6 yrs on the island, hence the "Bratva" affiliation and tatoo.

I thought this episode was incredible and like how they are handling Roy Harper's introduction. Seems like the critics are being a bit hard on it... With all of the drama and action I would prob put it in my top 5 arrow eps so far. Helena just kept pushing the envolope and freaking me out! She threatened Olivers fam in his own home, damn near broke Tommy's wrist, and then nabbed felicity AFTER Oliver saved her from the police station! I was on the edge of my seat lol.

Not to mention some great jokes this week ie "the T-mobile girl" LOL.

[Plus, I like Katie Cassidy and she needs to be doing more than moping around. She's much more fun when in action.]

This is a joke right, she sure as hell doesnt know how to do the moping around either. I hope they never make her Black Canary as long as Katie Cassidy is in the role, she is beyond the worst actress on TV I have seen in a while. The only action she needs is a death scene, hate to say it but they should just kill off the character. The writing and the acting breathe zero life to the character, what is even the point off keeping her around.

I said this before but the comment did not show up. I do agree with Jackie. One of the reasons why Smallville was so successful
Was how long they manage to keep Clarks secret. Between season 1 to 4, a few proleg he to find out but they all either died or memory loss or left. This always kept the tension and excitement going. This is not Banshee, the writers need to pace them selves. They're sucking the excitement out of this show with too much reveal in so little time. Oliver had to be put I'm situations where he'll always run the risk of exposure, that will keep viewers at the edge of their seat.

This might be a bit out there, but I think Walter is probably being held on the Island where Oliver was found. I can see the season ending with Oliver going back to the Island.

Amazing EPISODE! How many developments! *_*
The Huntress story! Ohhhh we all knew it would go nasty! But the moment when he put the arrow to her, and she realized how wrong she's gone, was Tremendous. I have no doubt we will see the Huntress again in S2! Maybe for a ep or 2 cause she got a main role(believe Dracula).

Oliver! Stephen is doing a great job. Really believable. U can just see how his buttons are getting pushed. The interactions between him Felicity, Diggle and Tommy were really well done.

But the best part for me was the Lance family storyline. And the way they handling the not action drama is what makes this show good. every part of the Lance family did a great job, believable job. I can see Sarah come back but as an other DC comic character. Laurel most become the B.Canary.

And a big KISS to McKeena. we will miss U!

I love Helena. "How many girlfriends do you have?" haha! When you skip the Thea, Tommy, Lance, Laurel, and Roy scenes, it's a lot better. The Roy fight was very, very poor.

(Cont.) Feels more like an after school club than a vigilante/superhero thing. I'm not complaining, exactly. I do like the additions, it just feels a little too much too fast.

Okay, Sarah had SO better not be alive, that would really change the feel of things and in a bad way. What happened to her is such a pivotal point in the characterization of both for Oliver and for Laurel that having her suddenly be alive would create a really strange hole in the foundation of the story.

There has been a great deal created for the show that was not a part of the comic series, like Sarah and all the island stuff(the island that Oliver was stranded on in the comic was deserted, thus he had to learn all his special skills simply to survive) and so far I like what they have done. However, the appearance of a living Sarah would--to me anyway--make so much of the back story and drama that we have seen and heard about thus far seem pointless.

Also, just a side note, I might be alone here, but I am not crazy about the fact that so many people are in on the secret already. For me it has killed a lot of the tension. Feels more like an after school club than a vigilante/superhero thing.
