OT: Arrow (also known as Revenge meets Batman Begins)
A fucking AWESOME episode.
Now THAT'S how you do villains, CW.
Seth Gabel's Count was incredibly psychotic and entertaining and now, thanks to Oliver, he will be EVEN MORE psychotic and creepy next time, which is awesome(also it explains on why Amnell called Count the first Arrow's villain that is of his own making, since Oliver ended up making him even more crazy and dangerous).Can't wait till he will be back.
On other hand, Oliver finally learned about his Mother. Can't wait to see where the List storyline goes...and the island...UGHHHH, this show has SO MANY great storylines.
On other hand, Dr.Who's Riversong is set to portray Laurel's wayward mother, Dinah Lance(also known as the original Black Canary), who returns to town to make amends.
Good choice since she pretty much looks like she could be K.Cassidy's(Laurel's) mother:
Also the whole action-y thief background of her previous role will most likely help with the whole Canary background story
HOLY SHIT AT THE NEWEST EPISODE.BLACK CANARY REFERENCES EVERYWHERE IN LAUREL's LIFE. ORIGINAL BLACK CANARY APPEARING. TOMMY AND HIS FATHER. ALL THE REVEALS.
This show is officially the ONLY show worth watching on CW now.
So, Laurel will have a blondier hair color in S2.
WHich(alongside the producer hints) 99% surely indicates that Black Canary storyline is coming.
