Rating: 9/10

China White teams up with Bronze Tiger to steal FEMA trucks. Can they take down Arrow together? Also, Thea fights with Roy for trying to be a vigilante. Laurel fights with the Hood because she believes he murdered Tommy. On the island, Oliver deals with murdering a man in cold blood and Slade finds a thing!

A lot of stuff happening in this episode. And I think the second half of this episode was completely perfect, there was just a bit of a slog before then. Has some great action and adventure aspects. And I liked seeing how being the Hood interferes with his life as Oliver Queen, CEO and Starling City celebrity. I’m not a huge fan of China White (nothing against her just she could have been more interesting) but the actress Kelly Hu nails it in this one. Though I think she would have been good as the big bad of one of the seasons, I think she’s gone after this show.

SCORING:

+10: Really good episode

-1: A bit slow in the middle
