Cyrus Vanch (David Anders) refers to a "taser", but his device is actually a stun gun. Tasers shoot electrified barbs into someone at a distance. Stun guns work by direct contact, as Vanch uses it. See more »


Cyrus Vanch: Time's running out, and still no visit from your friend. I might have overestimated his fondness for you.
Laurel Lance: Assault with intent and kidnapping. You're gonna rot in prison for life this time.
Cyrus Vanch: That's assuming your hooded BFF saves you. And his chances of survival are not so great.

One of the best episodes
7 February 2013 | by giorgos-koropiSee all my reviews

Just finished watching the 13th episode of arrow and i have to say that i am truly amazed!This one is just as good as the pilot, the the storyline is very strong and the way that all the secrets are being slowly unrevealed is one of the strong points of this show! As the season goes on we get to see just how corrupted are the people in Oliver's life, and one of the key moments in my opinion is just how the writers are gonna handle the circumstances that are being formed. Either way its very difficult for every single episode to be great in a sum of 23 episode in a single season, and i really hope they maintain the quality of the show, cause as it is it's one of the best on the market right now. However that's not the case with this one, get yourselves ready for the next exiting 50 minutes of action and sit back comfortably on your couch.
