    Ditto. By the end of this episode, I wanted Ollie to put her down himself.

    Inorite? I'm shocked this show doesn't have more female viewers.

    is it just me or did Oliver sound too much like batman in the latest episode what with him jamming the whole "No Kill" Policy down Helena's Throat despite the fact he's killed a few guys before and seeing what some of these men have done...anything less than death would be considered a crime

    Finally watched the first 4 episodes. I love it. It's really awesome. I believe in this version of Green Arrow.

    I imagine she'll be able to pick up another crossbow. Pretty sure she was only using guns when she assassinated the Tong leader as a misdirection.

    Had the episode on a second time today as background noise, and I have some additional thoughts.

    - Why is Diggle so pissy about Helena? I get that he thinks she's dangerous and reckless, but he acts like he's got her all figured out before they ever meet. He didn't have a very high opinion of Ollie before, either, so why does she get the cold shoulder? Why is Diggle so adament about Ollie not making the effort to help her.

    - Ollie's full of it, claiming that killing isn't his opening movie. During the big action sequence, the very first thing he does is shoot a guy in the chest down a flight of stairs. That dude is dead. I'm also a bit unclear as to how Ollie is more moral than Helena.

    - A guy who sells oxycodone to teenagers is on Robert Queen's list of baddies destroying Starling City? Are jaywalkers and habitual matress tag pullers on there as well? It looks like a pretty long list.

    - What was up with Helena and Laurel being pissy with Oliver and Tommy after their dinner date. Helena may not have known what was up when she invited Tommy and Laurel to join them, but Laurel certinally did, and it was obvious that Ollie and Tommy both knew it was a terrible idea right from the start.

    - Something that's been bothering me for a while, how did Laurel meet Ollie and Tommy. In this episode, Ollie claims they've all known eachother forever, and in a previous episode, Laurel mentions an eigth grade class trip to the local penitentiary. How does the daughter of a police officer end up in the same class as the sons of billionaires? Did she steal a school uniform at some point and just blend in?

    - Awkward Sexy Nerd Woman is hilarious. I want a whole episode of her and Detective Lance solving crimes together.

    I liked Helena's plan of starting a mob war to destroy her father's organization. Great ending with Oliver's stepfather discoverering more about what's going on with the crime syndicate. He'll probably be killed off because he's starting to know too much information about them.

    I was under the impression he was one of Frank Bertinelli's main lieutenants, which is why he and Helena targeted him as a test run.

    That thought crossed my mind as well, combined with the weirdness of Huntress being explicitly shown as a bad shot in the last episode and then suddenly getting a crossbow by Ollie (I get how a bow and arrow might be superior to a gun in what Ollie does, but a mini-crossbow?) Also, Ollie suddenly thinking of Huntress as a lost cause after a weird dinner date felt extremely rushed.

    Other that that I thought this episode was a return to form, a lot of things got crammed into 40 minutes of TV and the action was good. And hey, another DC villain got unceremoniously killed off!

    Her scenes have become my favorite part of the show.

    Right, I get that. It just seems odd that even a mob lieutenant would be on the list given the sorts of guys Ollie's gone after previously.

    The episode was a bit contradicting. He says killing isn't what he tries to do yet thats what he's been doing. I mean, he does let people go but mostly the henchmen he kills. Unless Oliver slowly changes his whole no killing thing and just tries to stop someone it makes no sense. Diggle did get to him the previous episode or the one before when the cop got shot in the bank. Maybe he's slowly changing his way of working which in a way should happen. He's just blowing away people like nothing

    Also, wasn't Green Arrow meant to have similarities to Batman early on?

    Refresh my memory, because with all the fast action when the Triad invaded the house I guess it escaped me- Did China White die or did she get away once again? If not her then who are you referring to here?

    Along with Ollie's mentor on the island, China must hold the record apart from the main cast for repeat appearances so far.

    The henchmen die in combat. He doesn't go around executing people.

    I'm pretty sure China survived, ut I don't remember perfectly. And so far, i'm pretty sure she has appeared in three episodes, though I could be off.
