Warfarin has long been a main ingredient in rat poison, and is also used in a more pure form as a pharmaceutical for blood clots. However, it takes three to five days to take effect, and the dosage must be calculated very carefully to balance the actual thickness of how much blood versus the medicinal efficacy of the warfarin ingested. In addition, it has side effects, but hallucinations and excessive sweating are not among them. See more »


Quentin Lance: I know, it sounds crazy.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Human weapons?
Quentin Lance: Look, his name is Cyrus Gold. He's the one who broke into Queen Consolidated last week. He's the one who robbed the blood bank. And he killed all those people.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Wait, hold on a second. Where are you getting all this intel? Oh, man, what's the matter with you? Talking with the vigilante's what got you demoted in the first place.

My first review. This was by far the best episode of Arrow. Action, Thrills, Plot-Twists, Eagerly awaited entries, clever references, humor, romance. It got everything rolling perfectly. By far one of the most perfect episode among all the T.V. series I have ever seen. Blown Away. The performances were top notch as well. The action set-pieces were awesome. The flashbacks. Hints of introducing many new characters. The message Oliver got from his old buddy and the reaction n especially the last scene were the best part. I wonder how they connect everything so easily and make something extraordinary out of it. Fabulous mid-season finale. Eagerly waiting for the next episode in 2014. 10/10.
