Arrow is back and we're jumping right into it like it never left. Not gonna lie, they've nailed Amell's fighting style to the point that Sea Shimooka is doing a great job emulate it as Emiko Queen. The show is also doing a good job of maintaining multiple threads:

  • Emiko and Rene working together
  • Felicity breaking the news to Oliver that he has a sister (and Oliver having to come to terms with that)
  • Diggle getting into hot water with Lyla 
  • What we see happening in the future with Rene "Trump"

There's a lot to like this episode. Just like The Flash, its clear that Amell was put on ice a bit this episode because he was shooting for the crossover but the writing handles it pretty well with him dealing with the reveal that he has a sister while Emiko and Rene handle the heavy lifting. The one issue we take (and this is no fault of the show) is the RIDICULOUS rules that WB puts on the Arrowverse shows. Ghost Initiative? IT'S THE SUICIDE SQUAD. You've called it that before. What are we doing?

Listen to our review and let us know what you think. Kriss also has a theory that the seasons of Arrow are at their best depending on how bad the wigs are. Rene's future wig might raise Season 7 up the ranks using that theory.

Oliver wants to get back to work and focus on his marriage, but Dinah wants him to track the new Green Arrow; Diggle and Lyla must answer to ARGUS about Diaz.
