Adios Moira. Fantastic character, and that car crash was one of the most startling TV moments I can remember. I agree Ollie has to let Thea in now; no question. She could totally use a big sister surrogate in Felicity.

I thought Diggle was going to lose all his teeth, the way he got smacked in the face with that stanchion. Apparently not, eh.

Definitely did not see the twist of Sara leaving coming. As Marty would say, that was heavy.

Anyone else think Ollie may have to take a moderate dose of Mirakuru to heal his leg and defeat Slade? And then he could spend the whole off-season break sweating it out of his system...

I don't think there's such a thing as a "moderate dose" of Mirakuru.

That's like saying someone is a "little bit pregnant".

I did wonder briefly, then thanked TPTB for not letting Ollie try the Mirakuru on his mom.

Imagine a superpowere Moira.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

^ Well, "a little big pregnant" is possible, from a certain point of view... and maybe by mixing some Mirakuru with the cure, they might be able to create a "moderate Mirakuru" cocktail.

Of course, in the comics DCU, this'd be the part where Ollie texts Superman, who swoops in and kicks Slade's butt. Long past that part, actually.

I enjoyed the "he's strong... like comic book strong" line.

Sometimes that "phone a friend" option makes things too easy.

Of course, next season when Barry comes out of his coma, he'll have some super hero backup on speed dial.

While I'm sure they'll figure out a way to prevent a cure for death (probably destroying the last of the Mirakuru), I will say that I don't think it literally cures dead people, only dying people. Once you bleed out, I think that's it.

^^^If Malcolm Merlyn ever really cared for Moira -- or still had a use for her, more likely -- he could whisk her away to Nanda Parbat, unbeknownst to Ollie or Thea...especially since they don't even know he's alive...

Unfortunately I've seen that so many times since the 4th season finale of Alias that it's all ho hum for me now.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

My cable funked out a bit at the end. I saw that Arrow was fighting the dude in the mask who then was set to strangle him in the mask. Next thing he's running down the hall with Laurel. What happened? I assume she shows up and rescues him? And why didn't they blow the building?

Yeah, she hit Slade with a pipe, then they ran. I'm assuming it became too late to blow the building by that point.

That wasn't Slade. That was one of Blood's army.
Isabel took out Diggle before he could detonate the charges.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Will the real Slade Wilson stand up?

More big revelations were made tonight. Now Laurel confirmed what Slade had told her about Oliver. She also found solid evidence of Blood's involvement in Moira's death. Ollie also revealed to Blood he was the Arrow. The last 5 minutes were very climactic and reminiscent of Bane taking over Gotham City in The Dark Knight Rises. The episode almost had a season finale feel to it.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

The "bug" Laurel planted was painfully obvious. In real life a big flashing light like that on someone's desk is going to be called out by the first person entering the room.

Again, this is the DC universe where world-renowned investigators are so oblivious that they and other people who are intimately familiar with you in both your mild-mannered and superhero personas are fooled by a pair of glasses.

A flashing red light hidden under a desk is infinitely more disguised than that.

Thanks, I caught everything but these two scenes. Since Oliver told Felicity to have Diggle blow it as soon as he was ready, I knew there must have been some kind of scene showing why it didn't happen.

Great second to last episode of the season. Should be pretty much straight up action for the last two right? Any way that Slade can be cured/redeemed or does he have to go? I'm also curious, the whole introduction of ARGUS and the suicide squad, is that leading somewhere in connection with the bigger plot of the show, or did they just want to introduce a new element that they can go back to now and then when the story calls for it?
