Does Anyone Really Die? – Arrow “Lost Souls” Episode Review (SPOILERS)

GameStop, Inc.

Two lost souls return on the latest episode of Arrow: Sara Lance and Ray Palmer.

It was great to see Sara return and sane again, for the most part. Similar to Thea Queen, Sara is showing the same bloodthirst as a result of being resurrected by the Lazarus Pit. Unlike Thea however, whose thirst can never be quenched due to Ra’s al Ghul already being dead, Sara can still kill the person that killed her, Thea. Surprisingly, there is a lack of emotional display of Sara’s revival. It’s as if no one was interested in Sara being alive again. I find it hard to believe that her mother will accept that she is speaking to her daughter over the phone again after being dead for several months. Then again, with how Oliver Queen and Malcolm Merlyn came back from the dead, everyone is pretty much immortal in Arrow and someone coming back from the dead is nothing new. Overall it is great to see Sara return to the show, it is just unfortunate that her revival was overshadowed by the return of Ray Palmer.

Side stories collide with Curtis Holt and Felicity Smoak needing helping from Team Arrow to find and save Ray. The episode even leads to trouble in paradise between Felicity and Oliver, which overshadowed Ray’s return. Since the season began, Felicity and Oliver were presented as the perfect couple, but the two are finally presented with genuine issues to work through before they can settle down. This led to Oliver and John Diggle drinking and discussing their issues, which was great since it shows their relationship is back to normal. In the end, Oliver and Felicity worked through some baggage and after some strong scenes together, show strong signs of being a stronger couple. The episode however focused more on Felicity and Oliver’s relationship and Ray for the most part, was a side character in a story line that’s supposed to be about him.

If there was one scene that stood out on “Lost Souls,” it was the fight scene between Team Arrow and Darhk’s soldiers. Laurel Lance, Sara, and Thea perform a beautiful, synchronized fight against Damian’s soldiers and prove that women can be the muscle of the team too. These three showed that women can be strong and beautiful, but if they’re ever in trouble they can find a bulletproof couch to hide behind.

Overall, the episode did not quite pack the punch, especially when compared to this week’s episode of The Flash. Sara and Ray’s return were anti-climactic and the flashbacks on the island made slow progress on this week’s episode. With everyone in the gang back together however, hopefully we’ll see Team Arrow do finally do some significant damage to H.I.V.E.

Summary

The women of Arrow showed off their moves, but the episode didn’t quite pack a punch.
