While I don't care for Tommy and Laurel (because I never like a best friend going with his best friend's girlfriend, whether he thought the person dead or not, and especially if he found out his friend was NOT dead), I'm not a shipper of Oliver and Laurel either. So I can accept Oliver and the Huntress. Plus I can't see how Laurel could really take Oliver back after he went with her sister and inadvertently caused her death. That's too much "water under the bridge". I definitely did not see that coming - John Barrowman being Tommy's father. What a shocker! But, btw, isn't he too young to be Tommy's father?

Was Tommy's dad the same guy who visited Moira in her bedroom? I didn't think they were.....

Yeah, Tommy didn't look to convincing when he said "That was MY trust fund." to his dad. He'll probably move in with the Queens.

@TFV168: My thoughts exactly. I even asked my husband about it as we were watching. From what I can tell, Tommy's dad is part of the shadowy group (that also includes Oliver's mom) who sabotaged the Queen's boat in the first place. They (the shadowy group) are very panicky that "The Hood" seems to be targeting people on the list of names Oliver's dad gave Oliver before he died. Does that clear it up?

I agree with some of the other commenters here: I had a really hard time digging up sympathy for poor little trust fund Tommy being cut off. Time for real life, Tommy! Now that he's broke, a relationship with Laurel will be good for him. I'm liking Oliver & Helena, for the moment. Let's see how it goes.

This show is only good because Stephen Amell takes his shirt off half the time.

Okay, I'm a little lost. I guessed the reveal of Tommy's dad was supposed to be significant based on the pause in the show, but I have no idea why. What is so significant about Tommy's dad?

Steve: Tommy is Olivers age so that makes them 27. Usually when families have money like Oliver's and Tommy's the kids do not have to work as they have trust funds. :)

I thought this episode was fantastic!
For me this continues to be the best new show.
I feel bad for Tommy, I am sure there is more to the story of why his dad cut him off the day after he visited Moira and asked her about her health and if she reconsidered. That was super confusing to me. However I think it is what lead Mr. Merlyn to cut Tommy off. Are Tommy and Oliver brothers?
I knew that John Barrowman was Mr. Merlyn as soon as Tommy went to talk to him.
I do want to see Oliver and Laurel together in the end but I like her and Tommy for now and I think Helena and Oliver make one hot pair!
I really hope we do not have Thea be mean to Oliver and then sweet every episode!

To the folks shipping Tommy and Laurel - don't even bother LOL. I actually wish, but it shall not be. If they're sticking with comic lore, Laurel eventually becomes Black Canary, and she and Green Arrow become a pretty formidable couple.

I don't know - I found it hard to stay riveted to this episode. It bored me a little.

Is she the black widow?

...too many rejections on both sides, and it could become very tiresome to watch.
