Did You Know?


As John and Lyla made their way to the bank, Curtis jokingly asked them to get a toaster. This is in reference to the fact of the old practice of banks giving free toasters to new customers. Banks have long since stopped this practice. See more »


Samanda Watson: Just because the system is flawed doesn't mean it shouldn't exist. Even someone like Ricardo Diaz needs a lawyer, a fair trial. We protect the rights of people who don't deserve them 'cause it's the only way to protect them for everyone.
Felicity Smoak: And yet here you are tonight, going off-book.
Samanda Watson: Well, it's like you said before, as long as I catch a bad guy, all is forgiven, right? And then we go get justice the old-fashioned way. In court.
Felicity Smoak: Let's hope.

The Descent of 4587
31 October 2018 | by highmarksreviewsSee all my reviews

I'm really enjoying Arrow's seventh season thus far. There's an added level of suspense, darkness and intelligence that hasn't been felt in quite a while, and that is a very good thing indeed. "Crossing Lines" gives me no reason for worry. The writers finally managed to find their focus, breaking down the episode into three larger stories. And while, yes, one was clearly above all others, each contributed in some meaningful way. Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) and Diggle (David Ramsey) had probably the weakest arc entertainment wise. While their plot meandered a little, it made room for some surprising character development for the two, which was a welcome shake-up. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and the FBI's attempts to thwart Diaz's (Kirk Acevedo) operations were fun to watch, especially since the Longbow Hunters were thrown in to the mix. Diaz, after this episode, might be a little more interesting than before, but he still has much to prove in terms of strength and fighting prowess. Oliver (Stephen Amell), had a very grim time in prison, as evidenced by some brutal, rather bloody brawls in the cell blocks. The added fact that he is now going to explore another side of Slabside has me very curious. All in all, "Crossing Lines" proves that season seven can work with more than one story on its hands, as long as they are relevant in some way. Even so, it's hard to deny the fact that Ollie's prison ordeal, is probably the most fun to watch.
