Rating: 10/10

Nyssa comes back into Starling City to give Oliver an ultimatum: either find Sara’s killer in 48-hours or the League of Assassins will kill everyone in the city. Oliver must go to Nanda Parbat and confront Ra’s al-Ghul himself before he attacks his home.

This was a good episode with a lot of twists and turns that work out for it in interesting ways. It had a lot of great action, both in the past and present, along with what might be the best one-on-one fight in the Arrowverse up to this point. I don’t really want to spoil anything as this was a really a great episode that everyone who’s a fan of the Arrowverse should experience for themselves.

The only thing that keeps it from a perfect rating of 10+ for me is there’s a bit too much melodrama right in the middle of the show. It’s not going to subtract points as this is justifiable melodrama, and maybe hinting at something in case Oliver’s plan fails, but it’s still there and is arguably unnecessary.

+10: Almost a perfect episode
