After Ra’s al Ghul attacks Thea and leaves her to die, Oliver rushes her to the hospital. Now, a broken Oliver journeys to Nanda Parbat to accept Ra’s’ deal and become his successor in order to save Thea’s life.

Love triangles in this show should just fall away and die. It’s just lazy writing, a way to stir up drama, and they act more as a way so that Male A can’t end up with Female A…right away. Just another “bridge” they have to cross but at least one of them has to be a jerk in the process by dumping someone else. Okay, I’ve decided that love triangles aren’t okay in TV, they don’t work the way they do in real life. The only time I’m okay with it is when all three people end up together, but when does that ever happen (on TV or in real life…)?

Aside from that, great action, like all of season 3 so far, and a good storyline as Oliver feels forced to give up his soul for his sister’s life. And all of Team Arrow venture into the land of the Demon in the hopes of finding salvation. As such all members have to confront Ra’s al Ghul and his League of Assassins in their own special way.
