As Vandal continues to hunt for Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Oliver and Barry set them up at a remote location in order to keep them safe and allow Kendra to learn how to use her new powers.

This is the second part of a two-parter crossover episodes, so it’s a little strange that while the other one was more action packed while this one had more dialogue and drama. I just think you’d expect them to be switched most of the time. But it kind of works, thanks to time travel.

What I mean is a lot of the drama is somewhat contrived but once Barry goes back in time, he’s able to stop it’s contrivances in order to bring us what we really love about Arrow, people supporting one another and trying to make each other better by being good friends and allies.

Now, I might not be the biggest fan of Hawkman and Hawkgirl but I feel they do a good job of presenting them here and showing us their stories without making it an episode that’s purely about them.

SCORING:

+9: A bit slow but very good episode by the end
