TV Review: Arrow S4E20 Genesis

arrowOliver and Felicity look for a magical solution to defeat Darhk; vengeance-driven Diggle gets a lead on Andy’s whereabouts and heads off to confront his brother; Alex takes Thea on a vacation that quickly turns into a nightmare.

Arrow is an interesting one with this episode that feels like a hell of a lot packed into one episode. We finally get a better idea of Darhk’s plan. Oliver and Felicia go on a quest. Diggle confronts his brother. Finally Thea gets kidnapped.

All of that is packed in an hour as the season begins to wrap up for the show.

It’s a decent episode in that even with everything going on, it still feels like all of that was all given enough time to develop and play out. And there’s actual development and the decisions aren’t idiotic!

I will say though, isn’t Andy wearing a bullet proof vest? Where did he get shot!?

Darhk’s plan feels a bit too reminiscent to the first season, but this episode moves a hell of a lot of plot points along.
