He's a menace, that Mr. Wilson.
sooo....Ollie + Merlyn vs Slade anyone?
I guess we know how Ollie got his ties to the Russian Mob now! Was I wrong or did I see a goatee in the preview for the rest of the season too? A fake goatee would make more sense out of his costume and him not being recognized.
A solid episode. Manu Bennett steals the show, playing Slade on multiple levels at two points in time. Nice to see that someone remembered Slade can and indeed SHOULD be a charming manipulator - a fact that's been lost in the New 52. The action sequences were all feature-film level quality. Not as many references or trivia bits this time around. Apart from confirming Ollie's middle name, the only real shout-out was Roy having trouble with a bow in much the same way that Connor Hawke did after he was kidnapped by a mad scientist and given super-strength, enhanced endurance and a healing factor.You can read more at my episode guide - http://www.mygeekygeekyways.com/2014/03/arrow-episode-guide-season-2-episode-15.html
Pretty good episode, loving how Slade was vamping up everything as a villain while setting up surveillance all around Queens house. But now we have an even larger question..how the hell did everyone else get off the island? Amazo seems to be stuck on a reef and there is a lot of people on it and on the island..So how where all of them rescued yet Ollie is left behind?
episode was too much for me to type while watching it today, but here are the things i noticedreally liked how slade appeared to be bigger in general near the end, i liked crazy slade on the ship a lot i guess.another episode to say that laurel presence makes episodes worsei wonderif the otherguys on the ship are more dc eastereggs, i think that probably yes.the tension in this episode was the best part, specially the part theshowed how scared team arrowis of slade, lol.anyway, nice episode
Deathstroke's going to nail Green Arrow's mom!That was kind of insane that the team scrambled to snipe Slade with a heavy artillery gun at the Queen mansion.Flashback Ollie is dumb.Curt Swan & Joe Kubert got shout-outs.
That was pretty amazing. Cannot wait to see Oliver and Deathstroke go at it.
Why must we wait two weeks for more show? why does this and AoS insist on having a break right when things get awesome.
That was freaking awesome!
Seriously. Great action sequences, an awesome villain, some serious tension for the team.
And easily identifiable bad guys who were obviously doing bad things!
Once again Arrow was preempted for collegiate basketball. I will get it on Sunday. >:-(
I wish at the end Ollie had just said to his mother, "It's not you, mom. It's Slade Wilson, he's a guy I met on the island that is sworn to kill me and all those I love. Anyway, see you later..."
Messy freighter battle. How many freaking crewmen were on the Amazo?
Tell me that the mansion's maids/cleaning staff wouldn't find those wee widdle camera or at least knock them loose while dusting? Why wasn't Ollie paying more attention to Wilson's movements anyway?
So... that preview. The chick with the blonde pigtails in the cell. Anyone else think we're getting a Harley Quinn cameo/easter egg? That'd be amazing. Surely she'd be in all the Suicide Squad promo pics if she was part of the team.
@billwhit Ollie actually DID glue a fake beard on for that reason, according to Green Arrow: The Wonder Year
@billwhit I've been thinking since halfway through season 1 that the dude needs to wear a fake beard/goatee when he suits up. It makes sense.
I remember being pretty irritated in season 1 whenever "the hood" would stand a few inches from Laurel or Quinten and they wouldn't recognize him, particularly because they tried so hard to ground the show in reality. I'm a lot more forgiving of that now, though, since we've delved pretty damn deeply into comic book territory by this point.
@starmanmatt1 a very fine episode guide
@smdrpepper Best guess? Slade comes back and starts busting heads. We still have to see how Ollie thought Sara died, after all.
@andre_morello Nope. No Easter Eggs in the names.
@sba.zerg539 When did things get awesome on AoS? I've been waiting for something to happen all season.
@Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird No rush, it's two weeks until the next new one. You can watch it on the CW site...not sure when it goes up.
Can someone tell me how Slade was able to install the camera on Thea's bedroom ceiling?
@scockery those cameras are gigantic. These days they have cameras the size of grains of rice... of course you'd still need a massive power supply and antenna for those things to be wireless... plus wireless cameras are universally crap as there's just way too much ordinary background radio noise to get a clear consistent picture
@poisonshadow I thought the same thing, definitely a Harley Quinn nod.
@poisonshadow God no, the less of Harley in anything the better
@starmanmatt1 @smdrpepper Sounds about right. There needs to be plenty of cannon fodder running around so Slade has someone to kill, otherwise we'd just see him failing to catch Oliver and Sarah over and over again - since we can guess that they won't have Ollie alone on the island this early in the timeline.
@starmanmatt1 @andre_morello and on that note off to check the world's best Arrow episode summary
@scockery Yeah, but that stream sucks, super low quality.
@Gallen_Dugall @scockery I had the same thought watching the show, but then realized that in a world of earthquake machines and Mirakuru, I'm ok with little wireless cameras. And who's to say Slade didn't threaten the lives of the Queen's cleaning staff and their families to get them to ignore the cameras.
@kingpsyz @poisonshadow I like Harley but I don't want to see New 52/Suicide Squad version of her in the comics let alone live action.
@Mikewing @poisonshadow The less of THAT version of Harley, anyway.
@Mikewing @poisonshadow Blasphemy.
@Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird @scockery last nights ep is on the cw site now. supports up to 900 kbps
@EvilMonkeyPope @kingpsyz @poisonshadow I'd be fine if it were Harley in an Arkham City type of costume. That would fit the general Arrow theme.
@Mikewing I liked her on Batman The Animated Series (to a point), but fail to see how she became required for any and everything Batman.
Never liked the character, the less she's used the better it is for me
