Well, nearly all the secondary characters introduced over the course of this season have been killed off... Assuming Slade is finished off next week, plus a couple more, we have a nearly clean slate to introduce new people for what will likely be a Russia-based arc for the show..?
Considering the theme of this season, I'm betting that Olliver will be able to cure Slade without having to kill him.
Yeah, he has to. Even in spite of what he's done, Oliver needs to find a peaceful way to solve the situation or else his evolution was a bit of a waste.

That being said, whether Slade survives anyway is a different question. He may still die.

I really hope they find a way to neutralize Slade instead of killing him. I would love to see him working with the Suicide Squad next season. A controlled Slade having to report to Waller and work alongside Deadshot would be entertaining.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Good ending. Glad they found a way to do it without killing. Although I'm not sure how Slade is going to eat.

Looking forward to ARGUS/HIVE next season.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Well handled season ender. The editing in the Ollie/Slade fight was exceptional and covered the fact the fight itself was average. Great that Thea left all the people that lied to her. Could have done without Det. Lance dropping at the end, no real need for it. Slade captured on the island and Ollie is creating his own prison but will Waller let him stay there if she needs him? Glad we have left the island and can get on woth more of Ollies training. Opens it up for many more guest appearances if Ollie travels the globe. And loved the Flash teaser.

Way too much stupid in this episode. A huge step down in quality from the season 1 finale.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Wonderful season ender. I'm glad they're done with this whole arc. I was getting tired of hearing Slade plotting his revenge. "Olivuh! Queen! must! die!" I wouldn't mind if Ollie had killed him, but it was more poetic to keep him alive.

"You don't have the guts to kill me."

"I have the courage to let you live."

Truly, the team couldn't have succeeded without Nyssa showing up with her own army of assassins. The cure was certainly the key to defeating Slade and his minions. Diggle and wife were able to prevent Waller from blowing up Starling City.

The whole charade with Felicity had me completely fooled. I thought Ollie really had feelings for her; she even stated she was convinced. But it's a pity she was used as part of the plan.

Poor Roy. He finally woke up and was freed from the influence of the mirakuru, but Thea left him, to be with her real father.

I liked the Flash teaser and look forward to it in the fall.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

The season finale was ok, although not as good as the season 1 finale. I'm definitely interested in seeing the past segments leave the island and go to Hong Kong. I iked Nyssa showing up, and I think Merlyn was used well. Iwasn't a huge fan of Detective Lance keeling over, but its not a big deal. I wasn't as big a fan of season 2 as I was of season 1, but I think the set up to Season 3 looks interesting.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

My only problem was the pacing in parts. "We have to hurry before Waller blows up the city", "Oh wait, I hve to go home first", "Yeah, I have to go do something too", ""BRB, guys".

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Felt like a season finale mixed with a season premiere. It had a few cliffhangers but set up stuff for the next season and wasn't totally leaving us hanging. Last season left us wondering what was going to happen in the premiere and this was like what is going to happen in EP 2 of S3. LOL.

It was completely out of left field for me at first, until I guessed it was their ruse to trick Slade. I think Ollie genuinely loves Felicity, but in a sisterly way (not a Game of Thrones sisterly way, though ). That being said, now that Sara's off doing her funloving assassin stuff, I wouldn't mind seeing something more develop between Ollie and Felicity.

Some great fight choreography and editing in this episode. The tunnel fight especially was superb. It was great seeing the League of Assassins, Roy, Sara, Merlyn, Deadshot, Lyla, Waller and everyone else back. It really felt epic.

I don't like the drama with Detective Lance's internal bleeding and collapse, especially as his arc was just coming back around again with him being reinstated as a detective and taking on a leadership role at the SPD. I hope they don't kill him off. Even though Sara is a vastly better character than Laurel, it was nice to see the hand-off of the jacket and a hint at her possibly becoming the new Canary as the show goes on.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the flashbacks progress to Ollie working with Waller. I was wondering how he acquired all these skills and languages.

It wasn't quite as jaw dropping as the S1 finale (which was hard to top) but this was a worthy followup.

As a non-viewer tuning in out of curiosity they might want to invest in a couple of guns to go with those bows, sure looked like they could come in handy.

Every version of Amanda Waller I see gets skinnier and skinnier. Us stocky people are losing our role models.

These are the early years! LOL.

Wanda Sykes as Waller would have been epic!

Darth Speedy has me worried. I love Willa Holland but they don't know what to do with Thea and I am still worried after the finale.

Well, "now" she can have superpowers, so we don't have to be amazed by how quickly the party girl transforms into a ninja.

A marriage to Prince Baron of Markovia, will lead to Geo-Force powers if she plays her cards right.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Thea is a mess as a character. As disjointed and impulsive as her behavior is, going all dark side with Merlyn was completely out of character, other than her character's sole reason for existing is to be a drama llama.
