We finally start to feel the momentum as Arrow gets into the finial stretch, with only two more episodes left in the season after last night’s. There’s still a lot of plot for them to resolve, so lets get right down to it. Spoilers ahoy!
Okay, yes, this episode has issues. Yes, there is a suspension of disbelief required. No, I don’t care. This episode was fun 88% of the time and it was ridiculous enough that I can forgive it’s faults. Even the serious parts were enjoyable. Spoilers AHOY!
Soooo...Arrow was new last night. I though it was a good episode over all, and just what we needed after last week. I love how we got to be a little more character-centric this whole episode, and not just on Ollie either. Spoilers Ahoy!
So I just want to say, I’m glad I didn’t watch the Flash half of this cross over until right before watching this episode of Arrow because it was so much better that way. Spoilers ahoy!
Last night I praised Flash for benching the title character and letting their supporting cast shine. I wish Arrow would have followed that example, and this episode would have been stronger for it. Spoilers ahoy!
So, we got a pretty solid episode, and quite a bit of set up for Legends of Tomorrow in last night’s Arrow. (And a special guest appearance by one of my favorite minor characters!) Spoiler’s ahoy!
Fair warning: This recap is half-assed. I had a 3-hour derby practice that may or may not have ended with a torn muscle. So I was pretty exhausted when I sat down to watch the show. We will have some interesting discussion nonetheless! CONSTANTINE IS BACK! Spoilers ahoy!
Apparently there are a few people who need redemption this episode, as a lot of secrets start coming out, although not all of them. Spoilers begin now.
