After Darhk’s attack on Oliver’s limo, all of Team Arrow is dealing with it in their own ways. Meanwhile, John has to deal with his brother Andy imprisoned in Arrow’s hideout and working for Damien Darhk. Also, Thea runs into someone from her past.
This was a very slow paced episode focused mainly on melodrama, which isn’t my bag, but I also realize that not everything can be light and fluffy, or action packed, or fun. But this isn’t Requiem for a Dream on TV, this is just redundant and kind of boring.
I’m also not huge on Anarky, mostly because I just see too many similarities between him and Vertigo, it makes me think they should have just brought Vertigo back from the dead. It’s not like they haven’t done it before…
+5: Kinda so-so
-1: I’ll not subtract because of the melodrama, as it’s just not my thing, but I am penalizing for the redundant scenes, when everyone is kinda mopey all episode it just makes me wonder about the mental state of its writers and directors this week…
-0.5: Anarky feels too “petty crimes” to really be as much of a threat as this show makes him out to be
