This was certainly the best episode of the season. Rarely does Arrow keep me on my toes but I didn't know what was going to happen. Wasn't expecting Chase, wasn't expecting Laurel, kind of surprised they didnt have Thea.

Oliver is going back to basics, he did spend half of the first season without OTA though he still had Diggle for majority of that time to help him so I think OMA/One Man Arrow will learn very fast that he can't do it all TRULY alone.

I hope they just stick with Black Siren being a villain because I dont want anymore back and forth after this. Having her paired with another male big bad is boring as hell but this is still Arrow despite it being their best episode of the season.

I’m dead. This was a phenomenal episode. I miss the Oliver centric ness of early seasons. Yet I realize the need for cast to grow and story to evolve as a show ages. Stephen could not possibly keep up that level of filming without burning out. Plus he’d have not time for family. But when I see an episode like this I can’t help but wish he could film 24/7. Ugh. I can’t even digest. I need to watch again and again.

Did something happen to the guy that plays René? When he was shown with the mask on it made wonder why, then Dinah and Curtis also showing up with it too made me think it was so the other one wouldn't look out of place... and kinda have the feeling that, even if it was his voice, it wasn't the same actor.

Anyway, the episode was boring. It did have me believing it was the real Felicity saying those thing to Oliver, though, and it was good seeing Josh Segarra again

I missed brunette Laurel, hope to her again

I didn't like the episode as many did, but only because I keep feeling frustrated with Oliver being pointed as Green Arrow several times. However, I want to see him working on his own, although I think it is no sense and I do not agree with all what Diggle said. It's not that Oliver took bad decisions, he always had to choose between options that would have ended bad after all (I mean, he's been "between Thea and Moira" all these seasons). And honestly Oliver was right about Diggle's advice, I mean, he uses to follow other people's advice and that's why some of his choices ended with a death or something else.

Stephen acted very well in this episode, after all it was very enjoyable to see one episode mostly focused on Oliver Queen and no one else.

I do not believe Laurel is playing as an evil girl just because she wants that. I may be the only one on this but I think she's playing Dragon.
