Even after teasing the theme of identity throughout the season, Oliver's forced change is still an eye-opener that promises many thrilling story opportunities.
Between the presence of Ra's al Ghul, the training montage at the beginning and a city succumbing to a bioweapon attack, I'm not sure there is much left of "Batman Begins" for the show to swipe at this point.
There's plenty more to love about this episode. Most importantly, Diggle is the main protagonist in tonight's episode.
Nearly all aspects of it have been called into question. And when you drop a bomb like this wedding business, it's hard for me to defend you...
This episode did a good job of making every character doubt Oliver and believe he truly has turned evil.
It took a while before [it] really sold the idea that Oliver Queen has gone over the dark side. But by the time the final confrontation between Ollie and his former friends rolled around, this episode did effectively showcase Ollie as a fallen hero.
In this episode of Arrow, so many things suddenly became clear.
Oliver's descent into darkness makes for a compelling watch - and the extent to which Arrow is willing to take risks, casting its 'heroic' lead in a seriously unflattering light, is certainly impressive.
This was the strongest episode we've seen in a while.
There's a lot about "Al Sah-Him" that was rather annoying. There were also some developments that were fun to see played out and that have promise going forward.
There are no more villains of the week, no more lingering romantic questions to answer, and no more room to screw around. It's Team Arrow vs. the League of Assassins time.
Still, it's fun to see Stephen Amell channeling his dark side without having to justify his actions or wrestle with those pesky interruptions from his conscience.
It's a memorable episode for Thea for other reasons as well, as she also learns that Roy is alive.
