A great continuation of the pilot episode

Honor Thy Father is another great episode and continues the pilot episode with great intentions. The character interactions were neat and it's great to see Oliver Queen struggling with his relationships with his family and other people including Laurel and John Diggle. Also the dynamics between Oliver and John were superbly written with Stephen Amell and David Ramsey bringing solid chemistry.

The writing continues to be strong with its blend of mystery drama and action. Also, the flashbacks were very cool too and leaves you wanting more about what would happen to Oliver in Lian Yu Island. My only quibble on this episode is that while the villain China White was well introduced, her fate felt really predictable.

Overall, Honor Thy Father is another great episode and continues the pilot episode nicely. Thumbs up. :)
