Oliver: “Well, I will still need my trust bodyguard.”
Diggle: “Fantastic, looking forward to my new and exciting career as a drug dealer.”
“Vertigo” is the newest episode of Arrow. If you haven’t seen it yet, beware of spoilers. To refresh your memory on the last episode, click here. Arrow airs Wednesday nights at 7 on the CW, channel 5 for local Houstonians.
Oliver makes it his mission to take down the drug lord responsible for Vertigo. He feels it is something he can do for Thea. Since this is a personal mission, it makes sense that he would go off book for this take down. The Count is said drug lord, and he is very eccentric. As far as villains go, he is great to watch. What’s unclear is if Oliver completely recovers from his dose of vertigo. He spends the latter half of the episode struggling with trying to remain upright after being dosed. The writers don’t really comment on whether or not it is completely out of his system, but judging on how he acts at the very end, Oliver seems to be all better. What did you think of The Count?
Felicity and Oliver’s friendship or well working relationship is definitely becoming a great part of the show. This episode takes it to the next level, but not in the way you are thinking. She comes to Oliver, showing him the book that Walter had her investigating. Considering how Felicity has helped on many of Oliver’s quests to clean up the city, it wouldn’t be too out there for Felicity to learn the Arrow secret. Then there could be an entire Arrow team! At the very least, the writers need to give Felicity something because they have Diggle and Oliver comment on Oliver’s horrible cover stories. Would you like to see Felicity learn the secret?
Thea is back to being on good terms with Moira again, and it comes after hearing from Oliver that their father was not a good man. Now while it is great to see Thea being nice to her mom again, it happens a bit too quickly. All Thea needed to know was that her dad wasn’t a good guy and cheated on her mom in order to apologize? Sure Thea is upset that Moira is a cheater, but how does knowing that her dad cheated on her make Moira’s actions any better? The writers clearly wanted to end the Thea being a brat storyline as soon as possible, but they don’t do that good of a job with it. Do you agree?
