By Josh Wilding - 12/4/2013
After a fight with Cyrus Gold AKA the Acolyte (guest star Graham Shiels), Oliver (Stephen Amell) is drugged and left for dead. Determined to cure him, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) makes a risky decision. The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past. Meanwhile, Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger. The Arrow asks Lance (Paul Blackthorne) to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed. Roy (Colton Haynes) is captured and tortured by Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro). John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Geoff Johns & Ben Sokolowski.

Alright, that last fight with Brother Bloods henchman was awesome.

Gustin is good so far, want to see more before being completely sold.
Nick56 - 12/4/2013, 6:17 PM
@BatmanRobinNightwing I was thinking the same thing
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 6:17 PM
Batman-yep, its definitely implied
Nomis - 12/4/2013, 6:18 PM

ForeverPowerful - 12/4/2013, 6:18 PM
I can't wait to see Deathstrokes rise to power. I want to see him with the mask too.
jdillander91 - 12/4/2013, 6:18 PM
Slade's alive!!!!!!!
vermillion - 12/4/2013, 6:20 PM
Geoff Johns was involved with this episode as well as next weeks, I definitely think that was a reference to the Reverse Flash which will play a role in the Flash tv series.

Episode rocked. They should have went ahead and showed next weeks episode as well. I don't wanna wait that long!
Arrowhead77 - 12/4/2013, 6:21 PM
Gustin was great as Barry Allen. Cant wait to see his transformation to The Flash! Fantastic episode
JoeMomma29 - 12/4/2013, 6:22 PM
Great episode, I am sure they are going to connect this to the DCU!
vermillion - 12/4/2013, 6:23 PM
And heck yes I can't wait for the eventual throw down with Arrow and Slade!
Nick56 - 12/4/2013, 6:23 PM
Really liked Gustin as Barry
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 6:24 PM
while i definitely liked the episode, there was nothing that really made me go "WOW" moira now knows about ras al ghul and the league and ras wants malcolm dead, maybe thats why Nyssa comes,to Kill Malcolm, cyrus was fricking strong, slade is gonna more badass then he was before, i think i was just overall impressed with Grant as Barry, again...just a very likable guy, just like how Barry should be imo
JoeMomma29 - 12/4/2013, 6:25 PM
@ BatmanRobinNightwing

They are still bitchin about WW!
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 6:26 PM

TheDarkLord - 12/4/2013, 6:26 PM
Loved the reverse flash reference!! Can't wait for next Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!
newmutantsRETURNS - 12/4/2013, 6:27 PM
Wow once again arrow just impresses....did any1 peep the ted kord easter egg? Also "miracle" drug thats used by hourman in the comics? Reverse flash killing barrys mom...cant get any better than this ...
Nomis - 12/4/2013, 6:28 PM
@ ezio619 - LOL! I thought the same thing!
JoeMomma29 - 12/4/2013, 6:28 PM

Great episode, I am sure they are going to connect this to the DCU!


No not the same universe. Jed Eubanks is in Man of steel and Arrow and doesn't play the same character.
Rokyn - 12/4/2013, 6:29 PM
Wow..he's [frick]ing Barry Allen...he even has his clumsy mannerisms that Barry was so infamous for. Kid has a great smile and he is really really optimistic compared to Ollie. That's good. No wonder they picked him, he is young 23 year old Barry Allen from the comics. Geoff Johns also wrote him very well. Anyone think he was seeing Zoom kill his mom? He said it was blur and a series of tornados and a man inside. Anyone thinking time travel? Anyone catch the Kord references. This season is shaping up pretty interesting. And why did Ollie shoot Roy in the leg? LOL?
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 6:30 PM
i just imagine diggle looking at the tv maybe at the end of the season,seeing the metroplos battle and just saying" eff this,im just the black driver!!, that joke still makes me laugh
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 6:30 PM
Rokyn-yeah i went , WHAT A JERK!!, u could slown him down some other way
Grodd87 - 12/4/2013, 6:30 PM
Reverse flash yes!!!!! That means there will be time travel show keeps getting better
jlabatman - 12/4/2013, 6:31 PM
Yeah Gustin was decent as Allen, but need to see him pull off Flash to be convinced!
MrCBM56 - 12/4/2013, 6:31 PM
Great episode. Great great great great great. Nuff Said!
Reni - 12/4/2013, 6:32 PM
Gustin was actually not that bad. And man, if they're going to namedrop things like ****** [frick]ing RA'S AL GHUL, LEAGUE OF ASSASINS, NOT BEING THE FIRST VIGILANTE, PROFESSOR ZOOM, "ALIENS"***** then you might as well come out and say already that it is connected to the movies. There is no way you get to use that much of DC lore while being separated from an already confirmed DCCU
Rokyn - 12/4/2013, 6:33 PM
Yeah I like Gustin. He's different and odd not like every other big strong superhero, he is just a guy trying to do right. I relate with him and he's great at his job. Sold me as a scientist. Though I will say this was a setup episode.
JoeMomma29 - 12/4/2013, 6:34 PM
@ Ezio

Bread - 12/4/2013, 6:35 PM
@BatmanRobinNightwing- I'm pretty sure the way Barry described it was accurate to the comics.

Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash goes back in time and kills Nora Allen to ruin Barry's life.
Rokyn - 12/4/2013, 6:35 PM
Oh yeah these guys are dropping big names all over the place god damn! They have a lot of creative liberty for sure.
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 6:36 PM
i did not mind felicity's boob window
antoineflemming - 12/4/2013, 6:37 PM
Barry Allen's a bit too Peter Parker/Wally West like to me, unless I'm completely mistaken about the comic book Barry Allen. What I remember reading of him looked like he wasn't a jokester kind of guy. Awkward pre-Flash, yes, but not the funny guy personality. Correct me if I'm wrong. The character is likable, though. I just hope he bulks up a good bit (not Henry Cavill bulk up though).

Oh, and Rokyn, I hope it's that. Time travel and stuff. Cuz that's central to Flash's story. Would be awesome.

Interesting thing to me about this episode is that Oliver said that the "Miracle" drug wasn't the only weird thing that he saw on the island, so I'm wondering what else he saw.
