Frank Bertinelli is arrested, and the Huntress comes back to kill him. When Laurel gets captured, Sara takes it upon herself to rescue her sister.

Birds of Prey is another comic series in the DC universe, so this makes me wonder if after the Flash was in production maybe they were trying to set up a few other spin offs? Hard to say. Just a thought.

This was a pretty cool episode. I especially liked the hostage-type tropes and mixing that with superheros works well. But I guess we already knew that one considering how many times supervillains have taken hostages.

Oh, I said I would always fault this and, just like Slade Wilson, I keep my promises. But the stuff Thea and Roy do in this episode is just filler.

SCORING:

+10: very good
