Ray is injured by an attack on the league. Meanwhile, tensions mount between Captain Lance and his daughter as he’s hellbent on tracking the Arrow down and bringing his crimes to justice. Ra’s al Ghul leads the police straight to Oliver and the Arrow is back to fighting cops again.
Very action-packed and exciting episode. I like seeing Lance as an antagonist to the Arrow again but it also feels like the show is just retreading old ground. Also, it feels odd that Oliver keeps hiding his identity from everyone when it seems to cause him nothing but problems doing so. I guess it does make for some dramatic tension, but I’m just not sure how many secrets and lies he should keep getting away with.
I like that their flashing back to the past again, something I felt was lacking from the last couple of episodes, but it’s almost always very good at showing synchronous happenings in both past and present. Here is no different as both are action packed, and it’s nice to see Shadow again, even if she’s not quite the same.
+10: Very good episode
-1: Oliver and Lance’s relationship has a lot of back and forth between being friends and enemies, huh?
