REVIEW: ARROW - "Identity" - MILD SPOILERS


Arrow Season 2 Review Identity


I only have one word for this episode: YES! This second episode of Arrow only shows that the best is yet to come.

Continuing from last weeks defining episode, Oliver has decided to give a new purpose to the Hood’s actions in Starling City. Laurel begins a personal vendetta to take down the Hood and bring him to justice. China White returns with a new partner Bronze Tiger (aka Black Wolverine) to stop a shipment of medicine to the injured at Glades Memorial Hospital.

Great performances all around from the female cast in this episode. Katie Cassidy was the best performance delivering an emotional scene about why she is after the Hood. You couldn’t help but feel for her and why she has to do what she does. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) was the comic and emotional relief this episode, her character has become more feisty than ever and doesn’t stand for the bull that Oliver puts down. (Come on, personal assistant.)

Diggle’s recent relationship shocker was a bit of a hit to the stomach. I just wanted to give him a hug. It made me happy seeing Felicity stick up for him, shows the audience how far they have come.

China White and Bronze Tiger were the stars of the episode for me. Bronze Tiger is hence forth known in my book as “Black Wolverine”. Michael Jai White brings a great charisma to the character and hope to see him again in future episodes.

I won’t reveal the last 5 or 6 minutes in this review because it is just too awesome.



The second episode of Arrow definitely has a set the tone for the rest of the season. New characters like Sabastian Blood adds to the struggle Oliver will face to help cleaning up Starling City. I’m definitely not missing a single episode of this amazing season.

I give this second episode an 95/100
