No consensus yet.
Someone finally knows Arrow's identity. I know. I wasn't expecting it to happen so soon either but I'm glad it did.
If "Lone Gunmen" is the template for Arrow going forward, I'd be more than happy to take a wrecking ball to it.
It appears that writers are taking a more somber approach to Arrow, which lessens the cheesiness of a comic book hero.
This show makes no sense; it messes with your mind and probably should have been a movie.
Not only did another DC Universe villain make it onto Arrow this week but someone discovers Oliver Queen's secret identity.
"Lone Gunmen" gets in a bit of fan service by adding a named DC comics character to the villain roster, but it gets more mileage out of Deadshot than it did China White.
The CW may have its flaws, but damn it, it knows how to draw us into a love triangle.
The routine of targeting corrupt businessmen and crossing names off his list could easily grow stale, so the fact that "Lone Gunmen" tilted the formula was appreciated.
It's all fun and games until somebody swoops in and takes out one of Arrow's targets before his work is done!
Deadshot aside, it's an episode that edges into police procedural mode, giving us a glimpse of Oliver the detective, tracing the provenance of a bullet in a manner Batman would surely approve of.
At any rate, considering the build up to the climatic confrontation, the whole thing did come off as a little underwhelming.
'Arrow' continues to impress with this week's "Lone Gunmen," integrating yet another DC character seamlessly as the plot progresses excitedly.
