For the first time we get to see a 'trick' arrow when Oliver uses a snare to hold down the bags of money that he shot out of the hands of the fleeing bank robbers. Can the famous boxing glove arrow be far behind?
We also get some nice character moments between Oliver and his mother. I know she is evil but I couldn't help but be moved by her attempts to reconnect with her son. I really hope he never tells her his secrets because she can't be trusted.
I am not worthy of a show that pushes all my happy buttons like this one does. They never linger too long on any one moment and I like the effort they put into developing all the side characters. I am sure this will pay off in the long run. Already Oliver is a better hero because the people around him either keep him grounded or push him to think outside the box as to what is 'true' mission should be.
