Summer Glau put in a good performance as Isabel Rochev. I'm very well aware that boardroom scenes are not what tv watchers expect the most from a sci-fi show based on a comic book character; they want to see Oliver Queen don the hood.
Kudos to Arrow's writers for including a fight within the boardroom and providing Summer Glau with a more mature role.

she did indeed put in a excellent performance as Isabel Rochev, I thought the boardroom scenes was excellent viewing really action packed, even tho we didnt get to see the hood, I dont think the storyline was ready to see hood so early in the show, I thought the build up was much better, slowly producing the hood when he had no choice, after his sister got kidnapped by the shooters in the hoods, just glad to see Summer Glau get out of that boardroom scene safe and sound, thanks to Oliver Queen.

At first I thought Oliver left Felicity in the lurch in favour of Isabel. Then I noticed that he checked she was safe before following Isabel out of the room. That suggests to me that he wants Isabel alive, as dead it might appear he staged the whole thing to get rid of her. What do you guys think?
In the 3rd clip, Isabel was careful not to look crestfallen. (There's a good word).
