Arrow: Goodbye and Hello

With the season winding down, I thought this Arrow was an interesting choice of direction for tonight.

Surprising? Yes. Disappointed? No.

One might think that this episode would throw off the steam that the Diaz storyline is starting to gain. Truth be told, I may have been with you there. (Especially seeing how we’re coming out of a lengthy hiatus.) However, I found this to be a pretty neat little story that leaves the door open for things in the future, while serving as a potential goodbye to Speedy and Arsenal.

Arrow: Enter the Dragon

Arrow continued its streak of pretty solid episodes this week by wasting no time and jumping head first into the Diaz story arc.

The Good

First off, seeing Diaz and the new recruit sparring totally reminded me of Wayne’s World when Wayne and Garth open the random door to show a bunch of guys training and Wayne says, “I just always wanted to open a door to a room where people are being trained like in James Bond movies.” HA!
