Meanwhile, Roy reveals his new super-strength to Sin who wants to test out his abilities. Unfortunately, Roy isn't able to contain his rage once unleashed and almost kills a man. Back on the island, Oliver is surprised when Sarah reveals a secret about Laurel. Written by Salman Ali

This roller-coaster is on a streak!
29 January 2014 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Superhero TV shows should all look up to their green arrow shooting daddy.

That is one of the thoughts that was pierced by an arrow as I watched a yet again amazing episode of this fun and straight up badass show.

The first thing you should know is that this episode stays loyal to the increasingly darker tone of the second season. It delves on family murder, shadier characters and for a change... sluts! (Actual sluts, in the prostitution business).

To give the DC fans a bit of eye porn, Slade makes an actual full suit appearance! And believe me, he can and will kick ass. I just got that feeling of an incoming storm when I watched him. The other villains to get a bit more layers to them are Sebastian Blood and Ivo. Both show their true faces in different scenes and they are not pretty.

Now changing to the heroes, Roy (while not a hero, yet!) transformed himself from the dude that's in the show for giving the ladies some eye candy, to a well acted figure and a character climbing the difficult and dark stair to becoming a layered hero.

Laurel got some bigger and more interesting moments in this episode that shows that "Arrow" listens to complaints and works on them. Laurel started to become kind of a female dog without any warning. But her problems with overdose and involvement in the unveiling of Blood made her a more concrete and believable member of the show.

The soundtrack, the camera work (I love the increasingly use of long dynamic shots), the sound mixing and the editing are still to par with the top of the food chain on TV. All of these aspects mixed make every scene punch your adrenaline sensors and put a smile to your face :).

I have got a few negatives though, no show is perfect. A thing that keeps bothering me is when Oliver says "What?". I don't know but it seems silly to me and it cracks me up in serious situations.

The next one is a casting issue. I know the actors in the show are mostly good and polished, but Sebastian's Mother didn't hit my believability sensor. She seemed over acted and wrong.

All in all this episode was a strong entry in the rising quality of the series.

I give "Blind Spot" a 9 out of 10.
