TV Review : Arrow : Season 5 : Episode 9 : What We Leave Behind

Hello Archers and DC Comics Fans , Here is my review of the Mid Season Finale of Arrow Season 5 Episode 9 What We Leave Behind 1st a description of the episode : After the attack on Curtis, Oliver realizes Prometheus is planning to make a deadly move on all of Team Arrow; Felicity and Malone find a clue that ties Prometheus to Oliver’s past. Now on to my review Warning Full Spoilers To Follow , Wow great Mid Season Finale of Arrow this week on The CW!!! What We Leave Behind was good , action packed , scary , intense and emotional plus an ending you will not want to miss. So many feels.  Oliver and Team Arrow really had their hands full dealing with Prometheus he is so scary as a bad guy. Also Oliver a really emotional sad side you rarely see that from him. This episode from to start to finish of Arrow was so amazing coming off The 100th Episode. The show this season is back after Seasons 3 and 4 which lets be honest was kind of lackluster. This episode at the start was scary Curtis Mr. Terrific Prometheus was attack and almost killed by him that was so scary to watch almost like a Freddy Krueger movie and the scary theme for Prometheus by Blake Neely so chilling. Artemis oh Artemis why did she turn her back on Team Arrow? She is so full of herself Green Arrow is not the bad guy. Now has Oliver done things he’s not proud of yes. Shooting Arrows into bad guys hearts is too much but he’s protecting his city. Artemis you have failed Team Arrow.  Also we get a lot of emotion as well with all the things going on. The Flashbacks where some of the best this season going back to Season One and where Oliver was The Hood and when Oliver 1st met Felicity. Now Felicity she is written so much better this year than in Seasons 3 and 4 when the whole Olicity thing went on which was not needed. Felicity is written best when she works well with Team Arrow and where getting back to that. Some try for what ever reason to compare Felicity to Chloe Sullivan from Smallville but you can’t they are 2 totally different characters granted I like Chloe more but  Felicity is good when they writer her well. Also Speedy Thea Queen came back this week and it was awesome to see her suit up again. Speedy is amazing also her dress in the episode oh wow so beautiful. Oliver did his best to stop Prometheus but Prometheus was always 2 steps ahead of him and pushes Green Arrow to the  limit. The action scenes in the episode where so good and reminded me of some of those great panels from the Green Arrow Comics so cool they where. But when we find out that is somehow that is close to Oliver’s team it breaks him and is so heartbreaking. You see a sad emotional side you don’t see from Oliver Queen very often and thinks about going at it alone but Felicity says no Oliver you the Green Arrow you save lives even though some lives get lost being a hero and saving everyone not always easy. Now the big cliffhanger of the episode we see Laurel Lance yes Laurel  Lance back in the Arrow Cave and when she says hi Ollie episode ends roll Arrow logo and we are all in shocked. I got to tell you Archers when Laurel came back I was in tears I even cried during that ending. Now we saw last Season Laurel killed by Damien Darthk and we don’t know which version of Laurel this is because of Flashpoint. Is this the original Dinah Lance  from the Green Arrow comics or is this Black Siren from Earth 2? So many questions. All we know is Laurel is back and we Arrow fans are so great full and happy she is. Now I know some are haters from Laurel and have been since Arrow started but I like Laurel and I’m so happy she is back. Welcome Back Laurel we missed you so much honey.  Overall I give Arrow Season 5 Episode 9 What We Leave Behind a 9.5/10 a great episode and one of the better episodes of Arrow in quite sometime. Arrow Season 5 resumes on January 25th 2017.
