“Guilty” felt like an episode that was meant to be a set-up for bigger things to come. We got some character development for Ted Grant, confirmation that Laurel could actually make a believable Black Canary and the introduction of a villain that can’t possibly translate well to TV. Then again, I didn’t think Laurel could pull off Sara’s Black Canary costume, but the Internet proved me wrong on that one:
This episode had me excited since the CW released those promotional photos of goth Felicity. Ms. Smoak has been this show’s not-so-secret weapon since her role was expanded midway through Season 1, and it’s about time she got her own episode. And for the most part, her origin story did not disappoint. Kudos to Emily Betts Rickards for absolutely nailing her first big episode.
Well, that was fast. It was just a few weeks ago that I finished my “Arrow” binge, and I’ve already been graced with more new episodes. And “Arrow” came back in a big way in an episode that was asking a simple question: can all these characters living multiple lives ever strike a balance between them?
