Lance calls the Arrow when another archer appears in town and starts skewering businessmen. Diggle uses A.R.G.U.S. to find the archer's identity; he is a man named Simon Lacroix, who goes by the codename Komodo. However, the team hits a rough patch with the mission and gets help from a surprising source - Laurel. Meanwhile, Oliver begins to worry that he hasn't heard from Thea, which forces Roy to tell him the truth about why she left town. Ray Palmer pursues Felicity. In the flashback, Maseo tells Oliver that Amanda Waller has ordered his first kill. As Oliver looks down the scope of the rifle, he sees the target is his best friend, Tommy. Despite her promise to her sister, Laurel debates sharing a secret about Sara with Lance. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Every thing is good enough
3 November 2014 | by kasrajalili2012See all my reviews

Katie Cassidy's performing is the best performing she ever done and i think she did a good job. this episode is different than many other episodes because it had less action and more dram and it's good because it says us this show can makes dram episodes as well as action ones. this episode is impressive and sad and in my opinion Sara deserved an episode like this. Stephen Amell was (just like the other episodes) wonderful and i think he is very talented and we're really lucky that he is the Arrow. I really have hope for this season of Arrow and i think it even can be better than the amazing season two. can't wait for next week and next episode.
