About 20 minutes in, after Dinah is kidnapped, Sara "answers" a phone call from Nyssa, just after speaking with her father back at the hospital. While she clearly answers and talks on the phone, you can, also clearly, see on the phone screen and reflected on her face the ANSWER and REJECT call button images, meaning she didn't actually answered the incoming call, all this during a full conversation with Nyssa on the other side.

Moira Queen: I hope my decision to run against you for mayor against you doesn't affect your relationship.
Sebastian Blood: Out of respect for that relationship, can I offer for some advice?

Another eventful episode.
5 March 2014 | by cousbrojsSee all my reviews

"Heir To The Demon" provided a nice insight to what Sarah went through with the League of Assassins. It was also nice to see the Lance family in a much happier time, even if it did cancel out the ever excellent island flash backs. This episode also had a great deal of family drama, and nicely panned out action sequences.

*Pacing: Good *Dialogue: Good *Story: Very good *Action: Excellent *Drama: Excellent

Another eventful episode in an already eventful second season, Arrow is beginning to roll with confidence each week.

Episode rating: 7.3/10
