The finale was awesome. I liked the battle with merlyn, and Tommy's death was surprising. Olliver's Mom admitting what she did on tV was interesting. I did think Detective Lance was going to die, and while I like him well enough I wouldn't have been that dissappointed if he died. I think the cop obsessed with bringing in the vigilante thing has run its corse. I'm not saying the cops should just suddenly start treating Oliver like an ally, but the obsessed cop thing was getting a little old.
Overall, this show has been great so far. I'm excited for season 2.
