The tense confrontation between Oliver and Ra's al Ghul makes for an exciting -- and literal -- mid-season cliffhanger.
"The Climb" delivered one of the show's best fight scenes as well a lot of other great character moments. There was something in this episode for everyone to love.
This episode is merely transition and shirtless ab fights more than anything anyway...
The truth about a lot of things came to the surface and I don't think anybody saw that ending coming the way it did. But, like any good climb, we have to start at the bottom to work our way to the top.
Arrow never disappoints when it comes to finales (mid-season or otherwise). This episode offered a steady stream of tension and emotional drama as Ollie learned the truth about his sister and chose to confront his own death.
On this week's episode of Arrow a number of characters did complete about-faces, and it was fantastic.
Either way, 'The Climb' spectacularly shifts focus back onto Oliver's sister - she's the episode's driving force and she's everything that our hero is fighting for.
That Oliver/Ra's fight -- and the literal cliffhanger that followed? That was pretty sweet, and a good note to go into the break on.
What followed was a compelling, twisty melange of sleuthing, discovery, uncanny fan speculation and... well, those final few minutes.
I honestly can't believe the maturity of Arrow and it's little brother show, The Flash.
I'm anxious to hear how all of the Malcolm Merlyn fans defend his actions. He has a soul so black there is no way to redeem him.
While the former ended with at least a brief flare of hope for a better tomorrow, the latter ended on a literal cliffhanger. And I don't know if I've seen a braver (or bolder) conclusion to an episode than this one tonight.
This Ra's is every inch the megalomaniacal assassin comic fans enjoyed for so long.
