Don’t Marines make 1000-yard shots without stupid props?
Whaurel finds Tommy waiting for her at the courthouse, and he wants to talk. He says Oliver is cool, and Whaurel says, Duh, it’s because he knew. Tommy wants to know if there’s a chance they could actually date, and Tarantula Eyes gives him hope for the future as they head out together.
Oliver speaks with Steele, and it would seem that Deadshot is targeting Oliver himself. Oliver tells Moira to get the family out right now, and DD notices a laser sight passing through some champagne flutes. Uh oh, Deadshot locks in on Steele and fires! But DD notices, and knocks him out of the way, allowing an innocent waiter to take the bullet.
Deadshot keeps firing, but Steele is safe with DD, and Oliver tells Diggle to get his siter and mother out. He races up to a stairwell where he has stowed his Arrow gear. Diggle isn’t far behind, and he seems the open trash can where the bag was. Arrow zips over to where Deadshot is and smashes through a window. The fire back and forth, then Arrow gets the drop on DS, leading to close combat. Arrow smacks him around like a little bitch with his bow, but DS pokes him in his wound to get away.
They chat a little, and DS points out that Arrow has taken lives too. Robin Hoodie says it’s for the good of others, so get off my jock. DS fires more from his little wrist gun that has a seemingly infinite supply of bullets, then Arrow shoots one arrow and we hear a thud.
Diggle appears, but he’s apparently been shot! Arrow helps him, and there is no way Diggle can’t recognize this mofo. We then flash back to the island with Hoodie cutting Oliver out of the net. Hoodie tells him that this place is dangerous, and “they’ll kill you.” Hm, I wonder who?
I always hated The Others.
Oliver slinks away, then mystery men in tactical gear with guns inspect the scene. In the present, Arrow takes diggle to his hq and prepares an antidote for the curare poison. When Diggle comes to, Oliver approaches him in his Arrow hear, but he’s revealed his face and wiped off his makeup.
And that’s the episode! No Evil Moira Queen scene at the end to fuel theories. What did you guys think? I still like it! Thea can go away though. I’m glad Oliver has Diggle to tell all his dirty little secrets to. There’s no way Deadshot is truly dead, so I’m sure he’ll pop up again. What other minor DC Comics characters will be brought on? When will we see more Whaurel asskickery? Who are The Others working for? Moira? Oliver has mastered shirtlessness, so when will he tackle pantslessness?
