"Even death's not permanent anymore." I agree with Felicity with that line.

Loved that we got a Laural and Diggle scene. I've been enjoying the interaction between them this season. Poor Diggle, Andy is alive and not the person he thought his brother was. I thought it was fitting for Laurel of all people to talk with Diggle because of everything that's going on with Sara.

I love Thea's hairs in the episode!
Urg, old pervert coming on to Thea, I was happy she beat him down.

Andy death didn't make sense to me because I thought Deadshot never misses... so wow did Andy fake his death to perfection.

It made sense for Oliver to be so defensive towards Andy because he made his family believe he was dead when he really wasn't as well. I love Diggle because he stay true to himself regardless of who the person is but even I was a bit taken aback with how quickly he was willing to give up on his brother.

Great gift from Curtis, the cameras where you can see through! Curtis wasn't int the episode but nice mention.

That Thea fighting scene. It was so awesome! I love see the women be so kicka$$ on Arrow.

The whole episode was pretty great for me, this season has just been great thus far.

I thought the fight scenes were really great tonight. I loved the first Laurel one. It was one of the best ones for her chracter. It was nice to see Oliver actually in the action as well even though he still had a bit of standing around and directing people.

The end was my favorite. My brother needed my help... The green one. Awe Dig. please tell me I heard that right?

On a shallow note I'm Not Diggng Rays hair..defintely needs a hair cut.

Better review later.

It was an ok episode. I really wanted to see more of the whole crew in their fancy get-ups though and was hoping they would get attacked and have to fight fancy.

Good thing that Speedy isn't a publicly known name for the woman in red or else connecting those dots would be not so hard...but I enjoyed Theas storyline the most, she probably has the best one out of everyone this season. Her showdown with Darhk was nice even though she didn't really get to do anything except run away. And it will be weird if Thea has this plan that can possibly cure her but doesn't call up Sara and be like "GURRRRRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLL I gotta cure!"

The fight scenes were cool though not much outside the usual. Though I feel like they need to put more time into them, I rather have scenes where they let the actual actors do as much work as they can instead of doing one big continuous shot with just the stunt doubles.

Not really understanding why Darhk is letting Oliver get as far as he is in his campaign when he shut Jessica down real fast. Oliver seems to be an easier target since he has more public connections with Thea/Felicity/Laurel. And I don't know why he keeps threatening Laurels life but doesn't send any messages, simply putting a soft hit out on her that puts her in the hospital would be enough to show Lance that he means business. And when will Laurel find out that she not only has a target on her back but that her father is a double agent?

This felt like a filler episode which was okay considering the crossover we're getting soon.

Loved all of the team ups, watching Ray in action again and the Laurel and Dig scenes.

So glad we got to see Lyla again. I missed her.

Opening fight scene was fun. A good Laurel and Thea fight scene. Also loved Thea stopping herself from induling in the Bloodlust.

Dig sharing what he know about his brother. Good Boy. Secrets have proven to be bad. The whole team needs to remember that.

I enjoy Ray babbling and getting excited about stuff. However, Felicity was talking about hwo her and Curtis had been working on the tooth for a while and getting no where? Random thought? Is you know genetics and DNA sort of Caitlins thing? Thats why they gave her the Arrow that killed Sara. Why wouldnt they have sent it to Star Labs other then needing Curtis and Ray to have something to do.

Im still trying to decide if Alex is in league with Darhk or now im thinking even perhaps Malcolm sent him to spy on his daughter. I could see that as well. Alex thinking Oliver as on to them. "Good thing hes not a killer"

Olivers excuses are still bad. Always nice to know. Felicity and hin should take a course on given better excuses and reasons to leave places.

I love Oliver and Speedy fighting together.

Poor Dig when he unmask that Ghost and sees his brother.

Flashbacks are still just blah. Im hoping they pick up second half of the season.

I knew Dark had to be smart enough to add 1 +1 and get 2. He had to realize Quentin played him last week. Now after Andy is kidnapped and taken he has to really not trust lance since all the questions he asked about him.

Malcolm is really father of the year.

Dig and Oliver are delicious men in tuxes.

Felicity "dressing in leather and tying people up." The look on that old ladies face was even more priceless.

I love that we are developing this Mayoral campaign story line so well every week.
"Maybe i should get the Green Arrow to endorse me."

Laurel and DIg - Amazing heartfelt scene. They both nailed it.

Darhk and Oliver - Another great scene. Will Darhk runn against him or endores someone else as Olivers opponent? Im intrigued by all this. Love this mayoral story line.

"Im just listing all the terrible ideas you've had over the last three years." Oh you crack me up Felicity.

So will the flashbacks finally start getting us to a point of Darker Oliver. The whipping of that man is start.

Seriously terrible cut from whipping flashback to date with Thea/Alex. WTF was that?

Uh - oh Blood lust Thea couldnt resist. I do wonder what Alex was thinking.

Lyla - I would have liked to see Oliver try and apologize the Lyla there but o well. She knew he could help Dig with the Andy news.

Pills that make you corroperative... interesting. So do we think in the end we are gonna find out Andy was undercover for Argus? Thats what ive been hoping.

More awesome fight scenes. I feel like tonight has been action packed.

Dig/Oliver - Oliver needed to believe you can come back from darkness. This scene seems to emcompass what Arrow is all about. Oliver needs to beleive his past can be overcome and what he does now matters more.

Im still confused as to where Ray is actually staying while he's "dead." Ray throwing himself a pity part is not a good look on him. I agree with Felicity.

The ending fight scene was very bad ass. I changed my mind i think thats my favorite Laurel fight scene. Speedy and Andy fight down that hallway and in the elevator was pretty freaking aweome. Oliver kickign but and taking names. Fighting large groups at once I missed that.

Damien and Thea was most intriguing? Im assuming this is because of the Pit? Unless it has something to do with her being Malcolms daughter. There is more to Malcolm and Damien then we know. Ive been sayign that since the beginnig. Im not sure if the were once working together or what but something more is a definite.

"Its nice of you to show up."
"My brother needed me. The Green one. "

My bromance love is alive and burning pretty hard right now.

So Oliver not telling Tianna the entire truth about her brohter is going to come back to bite him in the butt i imagine.

Thea going to Malcolm for help with her plan to use Darhk and his powers to end her blood lust is not going to end well. I do hope she shares it with the others.

Dig and his brother. Poor Dig hes so broken over his brother.

I love Oliver pretty much addresses that last speech right at Damien. I cant wait for the second half of the season to see how all this plays out.

Maybe there's a background story on that we don't know yet. Now Deadshot is (supposedly) dead and Andy alive. I think I would love to live on Star City, they kind of bring their people immortality

I agree that this episode felt a tiny bit filler-y to me.

The flashbacks were kind of interesting, I actually cared about them a bit for once.

Seeing Ray back is still really odd for me.

I liked Thea's storyline a lot and I like that they didn't just drop that "darkness" storyline for her.

The canary cry was soooooo weird.

The Diggle/Laurel scene was my favorite from the episode, I really love that interaction.
