I understand how this episode is a necessary bridge to Felicity's exit and that Tommy makes the perfect manifestation of Oliver's growing conscience, (he had one before but it was a little stunted), what I am missing is the connection he should have with Emiko. There should have been more episodes with the characters working together and seeming to grow closer. Their relationship just has not had a chance to grow. As such the pain and longing for her redemption that he seems to be looking for makes less sense then the show wants us to believe. This arc has made me miss Willa Holland's Thea. It strikes me that that character would have been a better emotional catalyst, esp. given her own daddy issues.

What ignorantsavage said.

Was William trying to be some kind of honeypot?

That's a yes to the honeypot. Actually I think it was more go in, flirt with him, distract him from noticing his system was being hacked, but essentially yes, it was a honeypot.

You're absolutely correct Ignorantsavage, they're missing a connection between Oliver and Emiko. I don't care how much Oliver tried to reason with his sister and convince her to see the error of her ways, there is no reason to think that approach stands a chance of working, despite what figment Tommy has to say.

Dinah really annoyed me with her about-face attitude towards Roy. Yes, I know she explained why she reacted the way she did, but the emotions just felt off, both before and after Roy went swimming in poisonous gas. Speaking of which, Diggle was being an idiot in the situation asking Roy for a sitrep. Really? You want Roy breathing and talking and sucking in that poison, John? Good thinking there.
