Vinnie Jones as Brick has provided a much needed shot in the arm in this season's villain department.
Well, like any good hero story, it takes adversity to see what people are really made of, and it's about time the Arrow's sidekicks stepped it up for good. In "Midnight City," our supporting cast gets to test their mettle.
Arrow really seems to have been energized by the mid-season hiatus and the disappearance of Oliver Queen.
The beginning of "Midnight City" has a case of the sads. Let's be honest; Arrow has had too many cases of the sads lately. The show itself seems sick of its gloomy tone, which is probably why by the end it goes completely crazy.
All of these developments will remain in place once Ollie does return - and Arrow will be a stronger and more nuanced show because of it.
The past is ever-present on Arrow, and the show has examined how it motivates Oliver many times before.
All in all, Midnight City was an alright episode. I loved Diggle and Roy's semi-bonding moment in The Arrow Cave when they drank to a not-so-fruitful night.
You know what struck me the most about this week's flashback sequences? The confrontation in the club was nicely photographed, and very "comic book" without going over the top.
It looks a little different than it did at this time last year, but Team Arrow is back. I daresay Arrow Season 3 Episode 11 was yet another installment when Oliver was not needed.
Whatever comes Thea's way is that goofy DJ, Chase, who apparently works for Ra's al Ghul and is contact with Maseo, revealing that both Thea and Malcolm Merlyn are in Starling City. Not much of a final stinger, but hey, we'll take it.
