The latest episode was a mixed bag, it was a big thumbs up for Felicity fans who were eager to see her alive and kicking and a big thumbs down to Amanda Waller fans. It was particularly striking to note that there wasn’t a single scene of Damien Darhk or H.I.V.E in the entire episode.
Maybe it’s the recess time given by Darhk to Oliver before he again comes back in action. The flashback scenes focused on the complicated relationship shared by Diggle brothers when they were deployed in Afghanistan as part of US Army combat operations.
