This week's episode comes after a brief hiatus due to the Olympics, but it was definitely worth the wait. Packed full of great action, character moments and teases for what's to come, "Time of Death" was another winner for The CW's hit show.

Arrow and Roy's developing relationship/partnership/etc. makes for the crux of this episode, and it is not only the best material of [episode 12, "Tremors"] but some of the best of the season.

It's all the more impressive that Arrow's character work extends from the core team to its fully realized peripheral characters.

To be honest, it just felt good to be back in Starling City, and the writers managed to set up plenty of intrigue for the coming season.

It's exactly where I would expect it to be for the premiere, as the writers are masters at pacing things out, as we learned when Arrow Season 1 ended with a perfect crescendo.
