    Very, very solid episode.
    It seems weird that we're left out of the clue as to what exactly Diaz shot himself up with, but yeah, best guess is watered down Mirakuru.
    Hopefully this was the last of Diaz, though I doubt it.

    The teaser for the next episode was kinda weird. I didn't expect Ollie to get back into the suit, unmasked as he is, so fast.

    With the reveal of something we've all speculated in the teaser I said watch this character end up being...and the end confirms it!

    First Guardian, now Green Arrow, everyone's getting duly deputized this season! :D

    So it's Emiko! It's slightly odd that there was zero set up for her to exist in this universe, and she's obviously not Shado's daughter here, but I'm looking forward to seeing more of her. I suspect there'll be another flashback episode after all to cover her backstory.

    Oh, and seeing Lyla and the Monitor in the same episode was weird, considering her comics counterpart. ;)

    I know at least one or two people on here mentioned Oliver's sister from the comics as a possibility for the new Green Arrow, but I did not expect to actually be her.
    Having Green Arrow officially work with the police is a nice way to keep him active without undoing him revealing his identity or convincing people it isn't him any more.
    I thought they did a pretty good job of addressing how Oliver's time in prison effected him and Felicity.
    Damn, I was really hoping we were done with Diaz.

    I continue to be impressed with Stephen Amell's acting. He's played so many different facets to Oliver over the years. We've never seen him like this before -- withdrawn, shellshocked, almost afraid to be out in the world again. It shows how much his ordeal in prison affected him, and it's great that he doesn't just shake it off and go back to normal.

    Good episode last night. I don't know much about this Emiko character so I looked her up and I'm interested in how she will be intregrated into Oliver's life when the time comes. I'm also enjoying where they are taking Felicity this season.

    I don't watch Supergirl so was there a teaser at the end of Supergirl this week regarding the crossover. Unless there is a teaser for Flash tonight, I'm surprised we got one on Arrow.

    Yes, the same one, and the same one will be shown after The Flash as well.

    It's nice they are doing that for people who night not watch all three (four) shows.

    A great episode.
    I think the next episode is ''the search for Diggle'', because he disappeard in the last take :)

    That was last week. This week, he was seen working with Lyla, and he was very prominent in the last shot of the episode (not counting the "Elseworlds" teaser).

    The scene at the end where she's looking at Robert Queen's grave confuses me a bit. Was that supposed to be the present or the future. The ruined state of the mansion says future to me but the character doesn't looked to have aged enough from when we saw her suiting up early in the episode to the time frame of the flash fowards which is what? 10 years?

    The present.
    Google says the Queen Mansion burned down in the tie-in comics between seasons 2 and 3.

    Someone needs to remind the Mayor that the only reason she has a city in the first place is because of Oliver. A public Green Arrow is kind of interesting as it's something I've always wondered as a Batman story but surely it paints a HUGE bullseye on him and his friends from all criminals.

    The Flash needs to do a quick piece to camera in support of Olly ;) grease those P.R wheels...

    Sister! Olly has a...Sister!

    WTF seriously? and I love how this show threats Arrow's ability as a genetic trait :lol: it's so stupid.

    I don't think we've seen future William demonstrating that trait. In Felicity's lair, IIRC, it was Roy who took the shots at the bouncing "tennis balls."

    She's simply a good archer (which one can be with a bit of talent and good teacher) not a fucking jedi :)

    When did Guardian get deputized? Last I heard, he was taking a really big risk just going out in costume at all, after Lena got the charges dropped.

    This show is quickly approaching afternoon soap level of stupid.

    The 'reveal' at the end really spoiled what was otherwise a pretty fun episode.

    There was a throwaway line that the police were considering deputizing Guardian after his heroics in one episode, and though it hasn't been followed up on, James has been acting pretty openly as Guardian since, suggesting that they're at least officially tolerating him.

    Season 6 felt like afternoon level soap. This season feels like Season 5, which is a good thing.
