For several weeks now, Oliver Queen has left his city. No longer able to be the Arrow, and in exchange for his sister’s life, he agreed to ascend to the next Ra’s al Ghul. The Season 3 finale proved that Oliver Queen needed something more if he was to battle and defeat the Demon’s Head.
This episode continues to move Oliver’s new status as Al Sah-him forward as new dynamics within Team Arrow may have lasting consequences well into the fourth season. And, one character dies while another new ally takes her place.
