Go Felicity.

I was glad that BS story of Earth-2 Laurel's was done after what, five minutes?

I'm with you FallowKing, I was so happy to see that statue smashed to pieces.

It was nice to see a Canary actually use her powers. Just for that I'd be happy to have Siren stick around or pop back in for an episode or two. Although Oliver is deluded if he thinks there's any Laurel in her--never was, never will be. Mind you, self-delusion is one of Oliver's specialties.

Speaking of powerful canaries, I have no idea who the newcomer was at the end. Most of the other sonic-based DC characters I can think of are villains.

I understand the need to draw Adrian closer to the team, but there is no way that a DA would get involved defending an accused military member. Nope. No way, no how. And that stuff about Oliver being his boss and that's why he's doing it? Yeah, no.

So now Oliver is shown to have met Talia. That's an alteration to the Nyssa backstory, isn't it? He has never mentioned Ra's first daughter before, has he? Oh well, I guess it's just more information he has been keeping from the team.

I do have to feel sorry for Quentin in this episode. If hearing from his not-dead, but not-of-this-world daughter isn't enough to push him off the wagon again, I don't know what is.

I'm not sure how they're going to balance Curtis' place on the team with Felicity's if Mr. T is going to be more like the technological genius he's known to be. I guess they'll stick to the hardware/software divide they've used in the past.

I loved Felicity's graphical top. That was a nice change of pace from her usual wardrobe choices. And I really wish Oliver would learn how to do up his collar under his tie. Either that or he needs to start buying shirts with larger collar sizes.

The Oliver-Felicity relationship is starting to become interesting again, and not necessarily in a romantic way, so that's an improvement. I like feisty Felicity much more than weepy Felicity.

It's nice to have this show back for the rest of the season.

It's hilarious that they set Oliver up in the beginning of the show as harboring so many secrets that they could just throw a bazillion things at him in the flashback and retconned them as more secrets he didn't let loose.

I didn't think it was possible but I'm even more in love with Felicity.

I'm just glad that Mister Terrific finally figured out his job is to be a gadget nerd, not a puncher. Is it me or has the acting from Mad Dog and Ragman gotten better?

Judging by the way that Canary statue crumbled, it was basically a giant hollow chocolate Santa.
