Arrow season 2 episode 18 'Deathstroke' Review (Spoiler Free)

Season 2 
episode 18 -Deathstroke
Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey.

Read our recap HERE!  It does Contains Spoilers, read at your own risk. 

All secrets we’ve been anticipating since the beginning have been revealed, leaving the world of Arrow in pieces. Every lie and secret in last night’s episode of Arrow is given light, casting a dark shadow on our characters.

Nothing is safe from ‘Deathstroke’s path of rage and destruction in Arrow’s season 2 episode 18 ‘Deathstroke.’ We see all secrets get their share of light in tonight’s episode, and an example of what’s to come from what seems to be a difficult adversary with more than a few cards up his sleeves.

Death stroke has no sympathy as he uses his kidnapping of Thea Queen to not only pose a threat against Oliver Queen but as a mere distraction to get exactly what he wants.

In the episode Deathstroke we also see the long awaited return of possible adversary isabelle Rochev, (Summer Glau) Firefly’s River, respectively. Her major role doesn’t come into play until later, but we do see her appearance demanding Oliver Queens role in an important meeting at Queen consolidated.

Dejavu? Thought so.

Theas absence is questioned when she doesn’t show up for the starling city mayor election. A frantic and flustered Oliver Queen is given the answer of his sister’s state of being as the mayor debate cuts to footage of Deathstroke and a frightened Thea Queen.

By the end of the episode we see the gang back together in support for Oliver except for Roy. Sara is also absent as she attends to her father who is suspected of working with the vigilante. We also get to see our trio of adversaries, in the dark with their evil plots that they have in store for Oliver and the rest of starling city.

Everything is coming forth as Deathstroke is getting closer to unleash his master plans.

Super Soldiers?

Where’d Solomon Grundy Go?

The episode seemed more like a catalyst for what is to come as it doesn’t seem like there is very much action to be seen except for the long anticipated clash between, Black Canary, Roy (Speedy?) and Arrow which all we get to see there is a very reluctant to fight Slade Wilson. I believe things will pick up more once Death Stroke and Arrow are able to clash One on one.

This episode, besides the kidnapping of Thea was mainly drama filled and had some Gossip Girl tactics used by Slade and his ‘band of other rich folk’. We do get to see Slade in his costume a couple times, and in action once.

The episode itself was done very well and holds a lot of importance as a lot of secrets comes to surface by the end of the episode. For the most part though the episode had seemed only like the catalyst for something much bigger setting the last few episodes for Arrow to hopefully go out with a bang leaving us jaw hung at the very end.

I see the episode to be an example that Oliver has understated Slade Wilson and has been misdirected at every turn which catches up to him, I believe teaching him a lesson he will not take lightly next time around.
