"The Undertaking"...begins to pay off on some of the season's longest arcs.
[Oliver has] come a long way in five years, and, as "The Undertaking" emphatically proves, Arrow has come a long way in 21 episodes.
The action sequences of the episode remain uniquely thrilling, particular standouts being the casino battle and Oliver's rescue of Walter...but amount to relatively little without the time to build tension.
As we approach the conclusion of the show's first season, each episode is growing increasingly epic and here we're treated to enough twists and turns to fill three episodes.
"The Undertaking" is easily the best installment of the series since February's "Dead to Rights."
While "The Undertaking" doesn't really make good on what's implied by the title, the bigger surprise is that it still manages to be one of Arrow's best episodes to date.
We finally got the full picture of everything that has gone into "The Undertaking" and how long it has been in development.
No flashbacks to Wig Island this week. Instead we're treated to some much needed backstory on Robert Queen's involvement with Malcolm Merlyn and the Starling City cabal targeted by The List.
'The Undertaking' isn't merely about Malcolm's plan, it's also about the events that led Oliver to become the man he is today.
