Diggle’s old friend Lyla from ARGUS is captured in Russia and sent to the worst Gulag. He’s ordered by Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) Oliver looks up an old friend, Anatoly Knyazev (David Nykl) in order to help them find her. On the barge, Sara seems trustworthy, and that’s good enough for Oliver!

One thing I’m going to say is Anatoly is very good at stealing the show every time he’s on screen. And in the past Dr. Ivo (Dylan Neal) is doing just as much show-stealing as he goes on to be a compelling and interesting villain on the island. Doing everything he has to in order to find “Mirakuru” a super-soldier serum of sorts developed by the Japanese during WWII and hidden somewhere on Lian Yu.

Overall a pretty great episode, they even make the office stuff interesting in this one. I’m not a fan of love triangles though…
