In this climactic ending, Ra’s al Ghul attacks Star City to try to destroy it once and for all. Oliver reveals his goal to Ra’s and is willing to give up everything in order to save his city this time.
Some of the best action in this series so far as one of the best villains in the DC Universe carries out his dark plan. It’s an intense thrill ride as Oliver turns to be the only one who’s able to take down Ra’s, no one else is strong enough. It’s things like this that really make this show shine. In a world of metahumans and all sorts of powers, it’s a man with a bow and arrow who’s ultimately the greatest hero in this particular multiverse.
There’s also some pretty good drama in this episode. It’s a good mix of emotional drama and psychological drama as Ra’s brings his most brutal punches to both Oliver’s body and his psyche.
+10: Great closer to a great season
