Episode 2.15 The Promise March 5, 2014 Recap and review

Episode 2.15 The Promise March 5, 2014
Preview below

This is was a no punches pulled action pack episode. Slade Wilson is revealed and we get a lot of cool footage from the island. Death Stroke is born!!! Interesting character. While usually out for the money, this passionate Slade Wilson is out for justice, no matter how warped. And Death Stroke was a tough foe in the comics w/o super strength. This is the closest thing to a superman we have seen in this series yet. Going to take a lot from Oliver and the team to take him down. Great moment when the empowered Roy Harper shakes Slade's hand. Nice grip you have there (Paraphrasing)

So Ivo is still alive. Now handless, will he finally turn towards robotics. But as the ship is already called Amazo maybe that will never arrive in this time line of events. Amazo the robot that can mimic every hero has always seemed a stretch.

Episode 2.14 Time of Death February 26, 2014

Episode 2.14 Time of Death February 26, 2014 - I have always loved the Clock King and all similar characters. But this may be the most sympathetic version to date. The criminal master mind is willing to kill to save his sister. The whole "I am just a genius" jealousy thing from Felicity is a bit heavy and over done. But does add some fun levels to the team of good guys. Looking forward to some major Death Stroke action now that Slade Wilson is out in the public...

Summary via WIKI 
William Tockman orchestrates a precisely timed heist of Kord Industries and steals an electronic device that will allow him to access any bank vault in the world. His work comes to the attention of Oliver and Sara, who work together to try and stop him, foiling one of his robberies. In response, Tockman uses the device to hack into the computer servers at Oliver's hideout and overload them so they explode. Felicity, feeling left out with Sara now part of the team, attempts to bait Tockman into coming after one last heist. Oliver, Sara, and Diggle arrive in time to protect Felicity, but Felicity takes a bullet while saving Sara before stopping Tockman. Meanwhile, the Lances attempt to have dinner together and it is revealed that Sara and Oliver are in a relationship, much to the anger of Laurel. Later, Laurel reveals the reason for her anger to Sara and they make amends; afterward, Laurel attends an A.A. meeting with Quentin. Slade makes his presence known to Oliver by coming to his home and meeting with Moira. In flashbacks, it is revealed that Sara befriended Sin after promising her dying father, a pilot shot down while flying over the island, that she would make sure Sin was safe.

The Clock King is the name of two fictional characters, both of whom are supervillains published by DC Comics. The first, created by Bill Finger, appeared in Star Spangled Comics #70 (July 1947) and fought Robin. The second Clock King was a villain and enemy of Green Arrow, and debuted in World's Finest Comics #111 (August 1960), and was created by France Herron and Lee Elias.

Episode 2.11 Blind Spot" January 22, 2014

Episode 2.11 Blind Spot" January 22, 2014

Boy, Sebastian may have been acting like the good guy till now, but he reaches new lows. Turns out he killed his father and by the end of this episode completes the job on mom. CREEPY!!! Laurel too often is like the dumb Lois Lane. always getting into trouble and needing saving but seems much more helpless. Is this Laurel really supposed to become Black Canary. better let lil' sis handle the super hero work. Roy is getting pretty bad ass. Are we skipping Red and going straight to arsenal. Never seen a show work so hard to avoid classic labels. At least he avoided being called Speedy.

Sebastian Blood visits his mother in the sanitarium and learns that she told Laurel that he killed his father. Oliver continues his search for the man in the skull mask, and receives help from Laurel, who suspects that it is Sebastian Blood. Oliver investigates Sebastian, who, fearing that he will be discovered, has Laurel arrested for narcotic possession by his disciple, Officer Daily. Afterward, he has her kidnapped to lure Arrow out. Arrow comes to rescue her, but during a fight Laurel kills the man in the skull mask, who is revealed to be Officer Daily, unknowingly throwing suspicion off Blood. Laurel is cleared of wrongdoing, but is fired when her opiate addiction is brought to light. Meanwhile, Roy and Sin attempt to use his new powers to stop a murderer, but Roy goes overboard and puts the man in the hospital. In order to help, Arrow offers to train Roy to control his new powers as well as his change in mental state. In flashbacks, Sara considers an offer from Ivo to return the Mirakuru for safe passage off the island; after remembering Ivo's torture of the ship prisoners, she declines.
