A traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene (Rick Gonzalez) about his family. Flashbacks reveal how Rene went from simple family man to a hero named Wild Dog. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) must deal with the perpetrator behind the attack and realizes the best way to do so is as Mayor Queen instead of the Green Arrow. Tensions run high in the Arrow bunker.

Whoops almost forgot to make this. I think the fact that Flash wasnt new last night somehow got it in my mind that Arrow wouldn't be tonight either.

It was interesting to know more about Rene, I didn't imagine that was his past. And it was really good to see that Curtis will help him I do miss Rory!

So Oliver solved this as a mayor, it was great to see that there are more than only one way to solve things! The truth is that sometimes is better for him to do it as Oliver Queen and not as Green Arrow

Little interaction between Diggle and Dinah but nice

Am I the only one that expected to see a different reaction of Lance when he heard Dinah's name?
They’re leaving because of their own personal darkness. I can’t help but think that they were infected by mine

Thea's back this epsidoe. Yay.

I crack up though with Thea's comments about Susan. Just because it's funny how Oliver used to be that way with her guys.

Oh yea i forgot this was the Rene back story episode. I really love this.

Ollie worried not knowing were Thea was. Brotherly love.

The irony of them saving Chase. I'm actually enjoying these episodes more now with the knowledge I have.

I love the berteneli mention. They bring so much of the past episodes this season.

Even though this epsidoe is very political. I like that arrow attempted it. Also I love they had both sides of the argument are being represented and that they made it a Mayoral problem and not a GA problem to deal with.

Nice Dig/Dinah scene.

Rene's back story makes me sad.

This episode was descent but I do feel it could have been better.

This episode was very blah to me. Definitely one of my least favorites from the season. It seemed the show wanted to talk about gun control more than it wanted to continue with storylines it had going.

Im confused because rene said that without guns his wife would be dead, but in the flashback she was killed by the gun? So... I dont get it. But it was cool to see more about him I guess?

Thea had some funny lines in the beginning and i also enjoyed the Dinah/Diggle scenes. She's more tolerable IMO around him.
