Storyline

It's been five months since the death of Tommy Merlyn and the destruction of the Glades. Oliver has been living alone on the island where he was marooned for 5 years. Digg and Felicity want him to return to Starling City and he agrees for his family's sake but he refuses to put on the hood. Roy and Thea are still together but she's not too keen on his efforts to deal with drug dealers. She's been running the nightclub during Oliver's absence but hasn't visited her mother. Queen Consolidated is in trouble and Isabel Rochev is out to gain control. Oliver turns to Walter Steele for help. Laurel Lance has joined the District Attorney's office and is present at a fund-raiser when the mayor is gunned down by vigilantes seeking revenge for what happened in the Glades. They then turn their sights on Oliver. In flashbacks to Oliver's time on the island, 5 months have passed since they stopped Fryers but they find others are on the island. Shado is soon taken prisoner. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Oliver is first talking to his sister in Verdant, the news anchor in the background mentions that the particle accelerator at Star Labs would be completed by Christmas. This is a direct reference to the Flash, who gained his powers when the particle accelerator exploded. See more »

Quotes

Oliver Queen: The city still needs saving. But not by the Hood. Or some vigilante who's just crossing names off a list. It needs something more.
John Diggle: It needs a hero, Oliver.
Felicity Smoak: It's too bad The Hoods kind of ruined your nickname.
Oliver Queen: No, it's good. I don't want to be called The Hood anymore.
John Diggle: Okay. So what do you want to be called?

Perfect Start
10 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

The first season started off fairly slow before getting awesome. This season instead starts off great and, hopefully, will continue to be even greater.

The episode explains how the results of the "earthquake" and Tommy's death have on Oliver's esteem in becoming 'The Hood' again.

The laughs are still there but it seems that the show itself is going to be more darker. Oliver doesn't want to be a vigilante and the season is particularly going to focus on Oliver becoming a 'Hero' rather then being known as a murderer.

Perfect start to the season and it feels like a completely different show (which is a good thing). I love Arrow and hopefully it continues to amaze me each week
