Out for Blood!!!!
10 February 2016 | by JKHarrington2-696-679597See all my reviews

What's not to love about this episode? After weeks of waiting to find out what happened to Felicity Smoak, Blood Debts came roaring back with the answer. We finally learn Felicity Smoak's fate after the brutal assault on the limo she and Oliver Queen were riding in. It's hard and shocking, but Felicity is doing an amazing job of holding it together. Oliver, on the other hand? Not so much. Poor guy's on a rampage for justice. Or vengeance. It all depends on how you look at it. It feels like Anarky is being brought in to replace the always crazy Count Vertigo to me. Not sure how I feel about the weird stalkery/romance thing they were trying to force there with him and Thea. But it was awesome to see Oliver's harder, warrior side return and be reminded (after multiple episodes of him barely being able to take down one person along) that he actually IS a force to be reckoned with. I loved all the moments Oliver and Felicity shared and the sweet resolution to her missing engagement ring made me teary-eyed. I just wish the show had lingered a bit more on them to let those emotional moments breathe a bit. They felt a bit rushed. But still. Amazing episode!
