I think Laurel's potential has been unrealized over the years, but I wouldn't say she's been underutilized. She's had a lot of screen time, and a ton of her own storylines since she's been separate from Team Arrow. They've been pushing her HARD this year in an attempt to finally get the audience to connect. In my opinion, it's too late for her, but I will give them credit for the effort to finally have her fulfill her potential. It just isn't working with the past two seasons and Sara's portrayal of Canary. So no, Laurel isn't underutilized, she's been mishandled.
I have a feeling Emma and Hook will be taken to Oz by cyclone at the end of this season... Yet another world visit I don't care about.
I absolutely loved this! It had twists and turns and a compelling story that kept me drawn in for the entire hour. I'm convinced that Elizabeth is actually Red's daughter; it would explain why he's so obsessed with her. I also did not see the bit about her husband at the end coming until right before it happened. They opened up enough mysteries to keep me tuning in next week.
