Thea turns 18 and starts suspecting her mother of having an affair with Malcolm Merlyn. Oliver discovers someone on his father’s list is a man who saved John Diggle’s life in the past. Meanwhile on the island, Oliver disguises himself as one of the terrorists.

This episode had two pretty good mysteries. One with Thea starting to realize her mother isn’t the person she thought she was, just as John realizes the same thing about his former commanding officer. Top notch action as well, though I wish there had been more of it.

Despite not being action-packed, this episode was never boring. Oh, except for the Tommy and Laurel bits but there’s so much happening outside of those moments that you hardly notice them.

SCORING:

+8: Pretty good overall episode

-0.5: Just a bit too much Tommy
