With crime in Starling City at an all-time low thanks to the Arrow and his team, Oliver thinks he can finally balance being both the Arrow and Oliver Queen and asks Felicity out on a date. However, when a new villain emerges, who has claimed the name Vertigo from the recently deceased Count, Oliver is caught off-guard and someone close to him is hurt. Oliver and a newly suited up Roy take on the Count. Laurel joins Arrow's inner circle and Felicity gets a part-time job at a tech store to make ends meet. Also, Oliver fights to regain his company, Queen Consolidated, but comes up against a very worthy adversary. Written by Anonymous

".. used up your League of Assassins Vacation Days?" (dialog)
15 October 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

If you forgive this series its more obvious failings (which includes those insane and overwritten flashbacks) you can simply sit back and enjoy it.

The idea of torturing your protagonist is hardly new; Shakespeare used the device. This series takes the idea to a new level -- torturing the audience too (a la Joss Whedon) with literally a dozen unresolved arcs at the very same time.

But, again, the trick is simply to sit back and enjoy the ride.

The cutsie romance with Emily Bett Rickards is to die for. I don't visit the fan boards but I'll bet this was by "popular demand." Rickards is a gem.

Nice start to the third year.
