Thea is in trouble
When last we watched Arrow things were about as bad as it gets as a nuke destroyed Havenrock, Darhk now has almost surpreme power and Thea is trapped in some weird Pleasantville. The episode started off really strong with Darhk showing his surpreme power as Arrows and bullets are not even in play anymore. At this state Darhk seems to be unstoppable. After everything that transpired tonight his end game is now just pure destruction.
While this episode deals with the direct aftermath of the destruction of Havenrock it seems really weird that Felicity isn’t really broken up about the collateral damage that she caused. It was briefly mentioned and then just brushed away by her father. Returning tonight to help the team was Curtis Holt. It was great to see him back and I will even say at this point it’s time for him to become a regular member of the show. We also got the return of Cooper, Felicity’s exboyfriend who no one probably even remembers because he was so forgettable. The way he was defeated was also lame as they could have used anyone in that role and it wouldn’t have mattered.
Watching Ollie and Diggle arrive in Hive’s paradise was a cool moment. It’s sterile look and sunny outlook is a vast difference than the dark and gloom streets of Star city. It was fun and exciting watching Ollie and Diggle fight there way though the city. An interesting thing about this episode is the fact that the people in this city wants to be there because they believe in Darhk’s plan. They are not drugged like Thea was it was fully there choice to by in to this fantasy world. Speaking of Thea, the drugged story was over before it started as it took one small chat from Oliver and she was back to normal. As everyone was in no time working together to stop Ronnie Raymond (Anarky) and in one stray shot the whole city was coming down. It’s a little weird that one Arrow shot could destroy a utopia but I guess you have to suspend your belief a little. Also in an interesting turn of events Darhk’s wife was killed and team Arrow has his daughter and Darhk has Felicity.It will be interesting to see how it will turn out.
Score 8.0 out of 10
