When Speedy isn't in costume, she'll have a new love interest and find it interesting trying to maintain a secret identity. It's not something that was really explored in depth with Oliver, so they'll take the time to go through it with Thea, instead.
I love that Laurel has ditched the wigs for her natural hair as Black Canary. It takes away the comic feel and makes her look very gritty and ready for action. In the three months they've been on the streets, she's come into her own, and we will likely enjoy her character progression.
This is the Team Arrow that was protecting Star City (so renamed in honor of Ray Palmer's vision of the city after his death) while the Arrow was gone. Things were going very well until they felt they could use a hand with the darhkness come their way by Damien Darhk.
John Diggle and Oliver Queen come face to face. From the look on Diggle's, it's going to be slow going for these old friends to get back the trust and camaraderie they once shared, but it will certainly be worth it in the end.
