Continuing with season 3's theme of self-examination and changing identities, Ra's al Ghul's proposition is nonetheless an unexpected twist.
If there's one thing this episode accomplished, it's that it definitely made some of the iffier parts of this season make sense.
Well. That happened. This week's Arrow threatens to turn the show in a whole new direction. I can't even begin to guess where they take things next.
This was a really good character episode and is really bringing the storyline to a head. I was so sick of Deathstroke last year by this point in the season, so it's very nice that I'm not sick of Ra's al Ghul.
Arrow finally returned to the Ra's al Ghul conflict in a big way this week.
Clearly she's the power behind the superheroes. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Felicity "The Kingmaker" Smoak.
Did we really witness a game changer before the credits rolled on "Nanda Parbat?"
While not the most exciting episode of Arrow, in terms of balancing everything we expect, it's one of the most successful.
Why can't Tatsu and Maseo just ride off into the sunset with their cute little family instead of heading down the road to heartbreak?
[Oliver] could certainly do a lot of good with this kind of power, and he could do a lot worse without it, but what's the cost?... That being said, this hour was startlingly short on action and tension, and its plot points felt a bit muddled and confused.
This week, "Arrow" is a tale of two episodes, as the first two acts are filled with forced conflict and clumsy soap operatic elements while the third sends the show spinning in new and exciting directions.
"Nanda Parbat" takes a while to kick into gear. The bulk of this episode reminds you that the show has an overload of characters just now, many of them serving exactly the same dramatic function.
Admittedly, tonight's hour brought an intriguing revelation on the nature of Ra's purported immortality, though given Arrow's inconsistent relationship with supernatural (see: The Flash), said "twist" raised more questions than it answered.
