Did You Know?


At the end of the episode, Felicity and Diggle are shown standing together, with a building and a straight road behind them, waiting for Oliver outside the prison. Felicity then walks towards Oliver, they kiss, the camera pans out for a long shot, and suddenly Diggle is nowhere to be seen in the area outside the prison which now has no building and the previously straight road has a 90 degree turn.

Ben Turner: I can't believe I'm working with the Green Arrow.
Oliver Queen: You aren't. Hey, maybe - maybe prison has changed me, compromised my judgement of people.
Ben Turner: You sure that's a bad thing? Look... No offense.
Oliver Queen: OK.
Ben Turner: But the old Green Arrow, he wasn't the best. He saw the world in black and white, but now you - you know there's gray out there, too. Maybe that makes you a better hero.

A thank you letter
27 November 2018 | by amanollahiaSee all my reviews

This is my first time writing a review, so you should know this one was important to me that i am writing my first review for. although it is better if you look at this as a thank you letter to everyone who had a part in making Arrowverse and specially this episode. it was without a doubt one of best episodes not just in this tv series but even in this category and genre. it has few negative points too, right, but it was so great and amazing that you must feel guilty with thinking about them. it maybe was the best point for finishing some story arcs and characters and i hope they don't continue them anymore cause then it can ruin everything. if i want to summary this episode I must tell it was more like an action game, Oliver had one main objective but for reaching that objective he had to pass some side missions and like most of good games after them he has some conversations about that and continue to hunt his main goal. everything in this episode was on point but if you look at it with more interest you can easily understand that everything from previous episodes that were related to oliver, diaz and prison were on point and almost everything happened with purpose. all people who had a part in making this episode, thank you so much, you did an amazing job, please continue to amaze us until the end of this show so we can be always this much grateful for your hard work. i was growing a bad habit to watch shows while i am playing with my phone but this episode was soooo good that i locked my phone the whole time and didn't even checked time once, all of my attention was toward it and enjoy all the time i spent watching it.
