The Aussie and Canadian.......
23 February 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Please note this is my first ever review! This episode was yet another great one. This is shaping up to be a brilliant show and CW have made something great. Unlike the others this episode is mostly consisted of Oliver's (Stephen Amell) flashbacks to his time on the island, after the previous episode where he joined forces with the strange yet menacing Slade Wilson (Manu Bennet) we see how their relationship progressed) But first allow me to start with the beginning. We see 'The Hood' threatening Moira Queen as to her information about her missing husband Walter, all the while Moira is pleading with the shadowy vigilante not to harm her as her 'Kids' (How ironic The Hood is her son!) need her. Rather foolishly Oliver pulls down his bow and she proceeds to fire at him. Skip to a couple of scenes and Oliver is stumbling into the back of his techno-employee Felicity's (Played by the amazing Emily Bett Rickards) car and begging for assistance whilst revealing his identity, to put it shortly, the rest of the episode is Her and Diggle attempting to save Oli's life and discussing him (Yes, he survives) but most of the story is his flashbacks) As we are shown this we discover Oliver and Slade plan to leave the island via a supply ship however, Oliver's lack of strength and wiliness to kill almost costs them and there is a moment of 'DO IT!" When he phones Laurel but runs out of time. Their plan is foiled however when Oliver tries playing 'Hero' by saving Yao Fei (I'm not liking this guy!) and getting caught. He is then subjected to a vicious and savage attack by 'Deathstroke' (I'm not sure whether I believe its him though.......) before Slade arrives and plunges a blade through his former allies eye and bombs the island. The next scene shows Oliver and Slade reminiscing and Slade revealing he believes Oliver can survive.
