Arrow: It's over, Slade! Your army is broken.
Slade Wilson: And I pity them. But once again, you miss the point. I have the one you love. You're going to meet me where I say. Otherwise, I'm going to kill her.
Arrow: No, you do what you have to. I'm done playing your games.
Slade Wilson: You're done when I say you're done! I was surprised. I thought you had a thing for stronger woman, but that I have met her... I can see the appeal. She is quite lovely... your Felicity.

Arrow's Master Stroke
15 May 2014 | by (Erfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

It was the first time in my life that I was waiting for a series finale so anxiously. I wasn't expecting a lot to happen in the finale except the usual Hero vs Baddie fight. Yet the way the episode's screenplay was written and executed made it one of the best episodes of any series I have seen on TV. I think the final scene will shape up how things go on in the next season and it explains a whole lot of background on Ollie's return. Yet, the way both the seasons have lived up to expectations, I am sure the third season would also be at par with the first two. I can safely conclude the finale in the following words:

Emotions, Action, Fast Pace and above all, an amazing Climax!
