I am happy that Oliver and Isabel had the little exchange while grabbing a drink. It sounded as if they were true soul mates. So hard it will be when they break them apart tho. :3
I enjoy it quite a bunch while it's on tho. I want more.
Felicity/Emily was awesome smoaking hot with both red dresses but especially her look at the party. I really loved that one.
As for Laurel. I suspect that it's for the best her char take a seat for a ep or two. I bet that when they reenter her it will be a big bang. Her last scene was how she's knocking on pills instead of booze so this can't be good. It leads to problems and problems often leads to on screen character success/peak, so she's not at risk. As chinese ppl say, in the crisis theres the gift of great opportunity.
I've noticed tho that Paul Blackthorn sorta took her place more or less as he's much more on lately, which I think is great. His character really has evolved into something interesting and it's great fun watching him mixed with the other ones.
I was partially right about the not all making it through thing. We will see both Oliver and Slade in the next ep. I can't wait to see what's in store for those poor bastards on the island when he wakes up. Tho it won't be safe for neither Oliver, not Shado or Sara. However I wonder, why Oliver couldn't just shoot the new "deathstroke" in the eye too, as he obviously seems he would to deathstroke because of that head we see in the start of every ep from s1e1 on. Was this black mask with no eye wholes that stops him, because that thing doesn't look as tough as his tissue it self or if it is that dense how is he even able to see a shit through that damned thing at all like seriously?
