Ra's, the hooded street thug who is currently leading the League of Assassins, needs a new right hand man at his side since Katana (Tatsu) killed Maseo. While Oliver looks like Mini-Me at the moment, we have to vote he overthrows Ra's and tosses him aside.
I remember when I first started writing about Ra's al Ghul. He seemed to have so much promise, what with his moral code and his seemingly intelligent conversations. Instead he's just another nutter hiding under a hood. A street thug with too much power and a magical fountain. What a disappointment.
Someone has happened upon Oliver in the dark and they're trying to take him out! Waddya wanna bet it's Ra's? In this installment, Oliver is going to wonder if he's strong enough to take on the position as head of the League and what it will do to Team Arrow. He's strong enough. Not sure about the team, though.
Oliver and Thea touch base before all of the schnizzle goes down in the city center. Does he have any idea she's going to suit up as Speedy? At this point, does she even have any idea? Can't wait to see it go down.
Here it is! The epicenter of the circle of trust. Somehow it doesn't look all that comfortable in there. If that's what it feels like on the inside, most of us would probably rather be on the outside looking in anyway!
Another show with a smiling Oliver and an over-the-top happy Felicity with Nyssa nearby sure seems to indicate the two loves who have been torn apart have had a chat solidifying their future. What are the odds, do you think?
What an unbelievably pleasant shot of Malcolm Merlyn. Is this a doppleganger? Has he had an extra donut for breakfast or is he just so ready to kick Ra's al Ghuls' ass that he's downright cheerful? It's the first genuine smile I've seen on his face that didn't seem more of a smirk. Well done!
I wonder what Nyssa feels being married to Oliver and back at the lair. Is it awkward or is she pleased to feel even a modicum of freedom at being released from her father's grasp. She's free in a way, right? I can't wait to see what's next for her. Hopefully she makes it out of the finale alive and well!
