TV Review: Arrow S4E22 Lost in the Flood
Oliver and Diggle race to rescue Thea, while Felicity, Curtis and Noah join together to stop Darhk.
Arrow has just one episode left with team Arrow going full assault on Darhk and his cult world. I think one of the best things about the episode is the new locale for Arrow and Diggle to run around. Seeing them running in what amounts to generic suburbia is actually interesting, especially seeing how they use their surroundings.
But for me, the highlight of the episode is Felicity working with Noah and her father as her mother watches on. Felicity finally reveals to her mother what she’s been up to and seeing the family dynamic adds a hell of a lot to Felicity’s character, especially with a twist towards the end. But, the best part is watching Noah make comments about the three individuals. There’s tons in this bit of the show alone to entertain and discuss and how things progress for Felicity going forward will be interesting.
But, with that good comes some bad, and that’s during the lest ten minutes where the show gets all Star Trek in the quality of its explosions and acting. Apparently shaky cam and jumping = explosions and things falling apart.
But, with that plan stopped Darhk is out of options, and pissed. It’ll lead to a showdown next episode to wrap things up, and who knows how team Arrow will stop him.
