Rating: 7.5/10

Helena’s back with avengence. Also, Laurel’s mom comes back because she believes Sara might still be alive. And Tommy, now that he knows Oliver is the Hood, throws a fit. On Lian Yu, Oliver and Slade make plans to stop Lyans before he starts a war.

Well, after complimenting Tommy last episode for not totally sucking, he brings it all back in this episode. I mean, he just found out last episode that his father is just as much a murderer as Tommy is. How come Oliver’s evil but Malcolm is let off the hook?

I like the stuff with the Huntress. I think she makes a very good villain-who-thinks-herself-a-hero. I wish she came back for a few more episodes but, if memory serves correctly, I think this is it for Helena in this series. Also, I still like the scenes between Thea and Roy.

SCORING:

+7.5: Pretty good overall

-1: Tommy’s motivation for the things he does needs to be clearer

+1: Helena is a great villain, it’s too bad there’s not more of her
