Honor the Dead by Fighting For the Living
24 October 2019 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

There's a refreshing sense of urgency with this season that has been missing over the last few years. Most likely due to the limited 10 episode arc, but it's still worth noting how much more fluid this seasons story seems to be. They have eliminated the extra character arcs and kept it to Oliver and The Monitor, hopefully that continues.

Fantastic acting by Stephen Amell has also helped anchor this year so far. Whether it be his few scenes with Susanna Thompson and John Barrowman last week or his emotional scene with Tatsu in this episode, you can tell hes putting everything he's got into the show this year.

Dare I say the flash forwards weren't terrible this week? At the very least they presented a cohesive arc involving JJ and Connor. I'll be the first to say I can't remember a single thing about the future story last year, and I can recognize the promise of their dynamic and what it could mean for the rest of the season. Will it ultimately change my mind? No shot. But I wasn't completely tuning out this week.

I won't begin to understand what that Lyla twist may mean for The Monitor arc in general, but that's not exactly the type of turn I was hoping for. I don't feel like ARGUS/Lyla need to be a huge part of season 8, as there's so much else to wrap up. However I'm open to it, and going back to Nanda Parbat is an interesting development for next week.

8.0/10
