This episode was pretty much all set up for what looks to be an epic finale. I love that it's coming full circle and everything will go down on Lian Yu.

I did like the beginning with Oliver flipping Curtis at the surprise party.

Poor Quentin... He was all messed up seeing Black Siren. It did look like she might have some sort of soft spot for him. Think Quentins dead on E2? I think maybe Quentin will be the one to help BS get the redemption arc next season.

I had forgotten about Nyssa and Merlyns beef.

Malcolm and Oliver sort of coming to an understanding on therre not be anything you wouldn't do to save your child.

I wanted Nyssa to being up last time they were on a plane it crashed.

The end... Oh yea as soon as Oliver walked down into ARGUS cells I knew he was going to Slade. I do hope we have a convincing reason as to why Slade will help though.

I can't wait this finale looks like it's gonna be amazing.

Overall a very enjoyable episode of Arrow. I've watched like a total of 5 or 6 episodes this season and I came back at the right time.

It was great and really cool of them to give a shout out to Lord Messa and use his art on the cake.

So the neck device ended up being Black Sirens but a collar for DD...they finally get a girl who has a Canary Cry and all of sudden she needs help focusing it....I think it will be what helps her get the upper hand with Black Siren. I for sure thought that they'd have Siren take it and that be the reason why she gains an upperhand in a battle but guess not.

This show needed more casual moments and we got just that with Olivers birthday party. It was really refreshing but lawd....The Curtis/Felicity convo afterwards.

Turning Curtis into a glorified shipper and seemingly nothing me gusta. Shouldn't they be having him focus on his relationship with his husband?

Why wouldn't Oliver want his sister with him? At least he doesnt have to worry about her as much as he would Felicity (but I know...he loves her, etc...gotta get that OTA in) Though I guess it could also do with Felicity not being able to defend herself in a fight as well as Thea could.

Siren in da house!!!! Play with them emotions girl! I was hoping we'd see her break out of Argus instead of taking the lazy route "oh she just happened to get out of a high security jail cell" Poor Quentin. He always gets put through the ringer. The Thea/Quentin scene was great. The Siren/Quentin scene later on was great. Katie/Paul always deliver the best. In fact the entire Lance family deliver the best scenes together. Black Siren isn't just a one note villain (srry!), she has feelings and I'm glad that they chose to show it with him.

Diggle looked like he was going 10mph trying to hit that woman lol. Like should've known how this would work and turned the hell around and gone like at least 45mph.

I'm surprised that Malcolm doesnt have any connections but I am here for him ripping into Oliver. It was very enjoyable. I loved how he told Oliver that he got his back just so he could get some kills in lol. I laughed at how it's pouring down rain but Oliver gets like 1 drop on him. Chase gets all wet in a matter of 2 seconds but Oliver is perfectly dry.

Nyssa is back! YASSS! It's great seeing her. Why don't they just sign Katrina full time? Just go through with it already. I enjoyed Malcolm not wanting to work with her.

Laurel!!!!!!!! Imaginary Laurel but still!!! Laurel!! I like KC as a blonde but there are no lies that she looks drop dead gorgeous as a brunette. Great scene with her and Oliver.

And in true Arrow fashion, it takes all of an hour to get halfway across the world.

The guy they got to play Slade looks A LOT like Manu. That's some good recasting. Props to them for pulling it off so seamlessly.

I wonder why Chase didn't have DD and Rene with the rest of the gang, seems weird to kidnap them only to keep them all separated.

No! Not Slade! No! Why didn't he call someone else?

I can't wait to watch that season finale! Adrian Chase, you better start worrying about your plans... Oliver will have help from two of his biggest enemies and his wife

Nice to see that Laurel was Oliver's motivation to continue and to not kill himself.

Remember, never make a surprise party for Oliver poor Curtis

I enjoyed this episode a lot. I knew that 520 was sort of the catalyst for Olicity getting back together. They arent quite back together yet, but takin it "slow" which I like. Loved that they were going to go to dinner and Oliver was stressing about it. I agree that its annoying watching Curtis be such a fan girl though, we don't need that extra stuff. I did love the scene where Oliver said he wanted Felicity by his side so he didnt have to worry about her.

Very glad to see Katie back, I really enjoy the black siren SL and I hope she sticks around a bit. I It was sad watching Quentin struggle with her being around. I did enjoy all the scenes with them and with Thea too. And we got to see a bit of the old Laurel in Oliver's head which was cool. It was sweet she was the motivation to get back.

I liked seeing the return of the island, definitely seeing up for a fun finale.

Where the heck is Rene? And Dinah!

Glad to see Nyssa back! She's awesome. Also Slade. I cant believe Oliver would actually go to him though! wtf.
