There is no way this won't get stale by the end of the season.

You must watch this episode, as it has swayed this viewer into believing that the show is a winner.

Deathstroke, Eddie Fyers, and even a subtle Batman reference! Yep, plenty of DC Universe moments to sink our teeth into from this week's Arrow.

["Damaged"] was firing on all cylinders, delivering the tight, fun, respectably acted hour of superhero television that the show has been striving towards, one which will hopefully become the new template for future stories.

"Damaged" still sees the show working out some kinks, but that it's avoiding becoming too clean and straightforward is ultimately to its credit moving forward.

Everyone was involved in "Damaged," as there was a balance between love, family, business... and vigilante ass kicking.
