What new characters did we get this week, you ask? The ever-not-so-popular Amanda Waller and a mention of the H.I.V.E. organization. One can only speculate as to where the writers are going with all of these new additions. Whatever route they do take, they've made it quite clear that this is definitely the DC Universe and as far as this fan is concerned, I couldn't be more pleased.
This week's episode focused mainly on Diggle and an extraction mission performed by him, Oliver, and Felicity. Diggle's ex-wife, Lila, has gone missing and is actually being held captive inside a Russian prison, coincidentally, or not, the same prison that Deadshot, who killed Dig's brother, is also being held in. While trying to keep Isabel, who inconveniently tagged along because Oliver dubbed the trip a business trip, off their trail, the team focusses on Diggle and making sure he escapes the prison with Lila. In the meantime, a few other minor events take place, putting Oliver and a jealous Felicity slightly at odds.
Throughout the episode, as usual, we get a few new flashbacks, these ones containing Sarah and Ivo, continuing what we saw last week. Although, Sarah's actions and intentions start looking questionable.
While this episode was seemingly uneventful in the big scheme of things, one thing was revealed concerning Amanda Waller that I imagine will later have a big impact on not only Oliver, but any other hero that's brought into the mix.
And that's it for this week, kiddos! Catch yah next week!
