Season 2 is looking decidedly more ambitious, with essentially a six-episode arc to wrap up the season.
It's a busy episode to be sure, and while all the beats didn't necessarily strike the right tone, it still managed to work in several great action sequences.
"The Man Under the Hood" still manages to incorporate some strong (if relatively brief) fight sequences, though much of the episode's function serves to clarify a few loose ends, and sprinkle about revelations to inform the ultimate endgame.
Overall, "The Man Under the Hood" simply buckles under the weight of its ambitions.
It was an important week in terms of Ollie's personal relationships, and one that further established the grim, oppressive tone of the series leading towards the big finale.
'The Man Under the Hood' is a very busy installment, with a number of major plots running in parallel.
"The Man Under the Hood" is a solid piece of TV, and there's plenty to be excited about for Arrow fans and DC Universe spotters.
