Still Very Riveting
19 October 2012 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This second episode has me locked in the story; I'm really enjoying this retelling. All the characters have an edge, and Stephen Amell does an amazing job playing the dual identity. His character really is 2 different people. It makes sense, and it brings flesh to the comic. The way the story is written, it is very believable. Some of the plot structure may be predictable in this episode (and that's not bad by any means); it's just comes with the style of story. In this retelling that is more detailed than anything captured on film about our Emerald Archer, we see layers to these characters and something very gritty. I wonder what the focus of each of these future seasons will be will be; I can't wait. Having 'China White' in the episode was great too. I'm looking forward to more DC characters being woven into this story.
