I thought it was a really good episode. That being said, I cringed so badly at Sara's reaction to hearing Slade's voice on the phone. I agree about the whole hidden camera thing too.

Looks like everything on the island is wrapping up. I'm going to miss the flashbacks.

Lolwut? How you got that from the end is baffling. Not to mention one season = one year, both in the city and on the island. We're not even halfway through the five years Ollie was on the island.

I think the island sequences are on year one still. Slade says something about fulfilling the promise he made 5 years ago and Ollie spent 5 years on the island right? So everything that has happened on the island so far has to have been less than a year. Probably could stretch out the whole island thing for however long the series goes on for.

@turkeysammich: Yes, but Ollie has already been off the island for over a year, so it would still make sense that "the promise" was made five years ago. Basically, I think there is always a five year gap between the current day and the flashbacks.

@turkeysammich: The amount of time that has passed from them meeting to that point of the promise, and Ollie getting back to Starling and Slade appearing is roughly the same amount of time. It was five years ago.

@master_thief: I thought something in there looked like her too, but I don't think they'll put her in the show.

@master_thief: I'm pretty sure it's her. Although they probably won't feature her in the episode, just show the back of her head and mention "Clown," and that she's unfit for the mission or something.

@master_thief: I'm not sure. I watched the preview on the CW website, and I think they have a shorter version.

Great episode. Love this show. But can anyone explain why Roy needed to be shirtless to practice with the bow?

@serfdom: Are you sure? I'm almost sure I heard Slade mention he'd been on the Island for some 250 days (give or take) a couple of episodes back. Ollie showed quite a while after Slade so I don't think Oliver's quite been on the Island for a year yet.

My favorite scene was seeing Slade without his eyepatch. It just really marked him as a scarred villain who's focused on killing these people. Also, did anyone notice the look on his face when he first saw Sarah? He looked like a freakin' shark that just saw its prey and is just about to clamp down.

Thought the episode was great. Manu is doing a great job as Slade. Can't wait to see the Suicide Squad.

Really good episode and agree with the Review. The only part i really felt disconnected with the show, was the, "Show me how you killed shado" part. If you are Ivo in that situation, do you not shoot Oliver immediately? If Slade tells me, "Show me how you killed shado" I don't hear, 'Just point the gun at Oliver'. Unless they were trying to sell to us that Ivo suddenly has a conscious now. I get that they just humanized him by telling us his motives, but I hope they don't think that explains him not Shooting Oli. PIS at its finest.

Funny thing tho, my favorite part of the episode was in that same scene. They effectively defined what we can expect from Slade going forward with only 6 words... Well 3 words spoken twice, "I Don't Care".

@imikosnyc: Probably a network/fan service thing. I mean the promos for season 2 did mostly consist of shirtless muscle-y dudes after all. As a side note, I'm super happy Arrow got renewed for a third season. Time to deal with the looming threat of the League of Assassins!

@raggedscarecrow: Yup. I was really missing my weekly DCU fix after Smallville. Arrow is great.

Ollie:"Why didn't you kill me??"

Slade: "Once you've suffered, once you've known complete despair, then you will have my permission to die."

That fits my "Mirakuru is the prototype Venom" theory.

Also, did anyone else think Slade was checking out Thea?

My point is, Slade is still into younger girls.

Also a likely option.

I was very disappointed with the lack of Arrow this Wednesday.

Another funny this about this episode was Slade touching all over Ollies mom. His hand slid way down past her waist.
