@Neejan I understand what you're saying and it summarizes the situation quite accurately. However, I guess what I'm going for is that I fundamentally disagree with some of the Green Arrow's principles. Sometimes, death is the only means of truly silencing the in justice. The Hood is beyond Oliver Queen, it's evolved to the point where anyone can be under the green costume. Helena is still at revenge stage which is why Oliver should let her experience that phase because no matter how many times he verbally admonishes her she won't be able to move on.
It makes no sense to me why Oliver is so worked up about Helena getting revenge on her father. It's the equivalent of the death penalty, something Oliver is in no position to deny Helena's right to execute. There's no slippery slope because the reason is fundamentally sound and the punishment is equal to the weight of the crime her father committed. Innocent lives were lost only because Oliver refused to let her deliver justice the first time around. Other than that, fantastic show all around. I look forward to more flashback scenes especially because of Manu Bennet(Crixus the Undefeated Gaul in the Starz Original Series "Sparatacus").
This was a sharp episode in many regards. I mean giving Matt Donovan more importance than just being a blood bag for Elena and the possibility of Damon finding a new 'drinking buddy' was amazing in and of itself. And Bonnie? She's actually talking to someone other than Elena or one of the vampires. All the Alaric references were pure genius. By the way, this Stefan/Elena break-up better last since it's been a long time coming. Klaus is as usual in top-form. Jeremy Gilbert. Need I say more about the promise the character possesses? I hate to end this comment on a sour note but why is Tyler still alive? I feel like he's weighing down the show somehow but not in the way Matt or Jeremy were who were simply off to the side. to Littlelight: I agree, Stefan needs to broaden his scopes out of Damon's sights.
