By Josh Wilding - 2/27/2014
THE TURNING POINT — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is shocked when he learns that Slade (Manu Bennett) has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo (guest star Dylan Neal), Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado. Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade’s growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski.

Oh man this is gonna be good!!!!
ndwwrestler2 - 2/27/2014, 6:54 PM
So is this going to be 70% Island 30% Present time? If so...HECK YES!
batz11 - 2/27/2014, 6:56 PM
Can someone tell me, watching last night's episode now, does Detective (well former) Lance know Arrow is Oliver? Knows about Sara as Canary, right? All showed up at crime-scene at same time, she said she saw him leave (the party)...couldn't for the life of me remember if Arrow's identity was revealed to the Lance yet...[frick]ing Gusto-moment for me...

Oh great an Intruder clone. Just what we needed!
Nomis - 2/27/2014, 7:18 PM
@ batz11 - NO. Det.Lance don't know Oliver is Arrow. that's why he used the voice modulator when he talk tohim.
BboiBlack - 2/27/2014, 7:19 PM
Finally marvel's shared universe crutch backfires in their faces. But hey, Sif will be showing up soon.
Logan276 - 2/27/2014, 7:19 PM
Last seasons island centric episode was amazing! So I'm really looking forward to this one.
batz11 - 2/27/2014, 7:21 PM
Cool, thanks Nom., yeah noticed the voice box after I asked...but thought he may just use that whenever he's Arrow...oh, spoiler alert ;) haha

Slade finding the Deathstroke mask = EPIC!!!
McGee - 2/27/2014, 7:22 PM
Wait....Trudy was banned?

.....We did it....We won....

soforizo - 2/27/2014, 7:23 PM
I like when they switch the dynamic of the show like this every so often. Island-centric and Diggle-centric episodes two weeks straight.
MightyZeus - 2/27/2014, 7:23 PM
Hey it's beans.

soforizo - 2/27/2014, 7:24 PM
Trudy was banned?
MangySaddle - 2/27/2014, 7:33 PM
Its a great show,
except for all that CW Cheese.
ALegendaryPanda - 2/27/2014, 7:37 PM

Yeah he got banned a little over a month ago.
ALegendaryPanda - 2/27/2014, 7:40 PM
Yeah why not.
DrunkenNukem - 2/27/2014, 7:42 PM dont think thats no..

Walking home from work in DT Vancouver saw potentially a huge Arrow spoiler in a lot full of crew trucks and a huge Semi truck with a Big name DC logo on it. Looked like they were ramping up for a night shoot.
BaneSmash - 2/27/2014, 7:46 PM
Do tell.
ndwwrestler2 - 2/27/2014, 7:46 PM
@DukeNukem I think that's more demanding than "asking".
Chrispy89 - 2/27/2014, 7:47 PM
Some letters ripped off but it had a big LUTHORCORP written across the side, looked like that was their way of trying to cover it up. Might just be the logo like they did with Kord but still pretty big name drop for Arrow.
BaneSmash - 2/27/2014, 7:49 PM
That would be sweet.
DrunkenNukem - 2/27/2014, 7:50 PM

yeah you are right

Ask is request (someone) to do or give something.
synonyms: request, demand...

Beaner8127 - 2/27/2014, 7:55 PM
Overrated show. Don't understand the devout love it gets. On the other hand I've watched every episode and I'll keep watching it so it's doing something right I guess. I'm a hypocrite.
Nomis - 2/27/2014, 7:57 PM
@ Chrispy89 - HOLY SMOKEY!!!! SHWEET!
BaneSmash - 2/27/2014, 7:57 PM
@Beaner - go watch AOS.........
Chrispy89 - 2/27/2014, 7:59 PM
It had the Luthor corp logo and everything, fingers crossed its a sign of big things to come for the show.
MightyZeus - 2/27/2014, 8:00 PM
How can mirrors be real if our eyes arent real?
Beaner8127 - 2/27/2014, 8:00 PM

Can't I watch both?
27ShowStopper - 2/27/2014, 8:03 PM

DrunkenNukem - 2/27/2014, 8:03 PM
