"League of Assassins" keeps Arrow on an upward trajectory with a solid table setting episode that blends vital exposition with exciting action.
What "League Of Assassins" does so well is reveal how such secret knowledge can slowly crush a person.
There were several good fight scenes in this episode and we are clearly setting things up for an appearance by R'as al Ghul.
Precious few complaints to be found tonight...leaving 'Arrow' and the "League of Assassins" on continually strong footing.
"League of Assassins" works mostly as a vehicle of exposition, establishing a large, nefarious organization that will no doubt have a major role in future installments.
Overall, another great episode.
I was glad that not all the secrets were kept, and that one of the Lances was informed that Sara was still alive. I was gladder still that it was Quentin who learned the truth.
It's Lance who's the heart of this episode, though. Paul Blackthorne increasingly feels like the soul of the show.
A bridging installment then, but a solid one.
While "League of Assassins" didn't skimp on the action (we'll get to that in a minute), it felt like a step backward in several other departments.
There were also some surprising reveals tonight, both in the relatively narrow scope of the world of the characters on the show and in a broader context of DC Comics' characters at large.
Arrow is really on a hot streak right now. The addition of Black Canary and the League of Assassins to the mix have done wonders for the overall tone and direction of the show.
