I haven't seen the most recent episode, but was pleasantly surprised that the episode before resolved the Sara Lance kidnapped plot. It is about the halfway point of the season. Very glad that did not take the whole season.
The show continues making its own way in a style of its own.
A nice start to the season. Gary's identity took me completely by surprise and I am not sure that it tracks with everything we've seen happen to him in the past - the nipple for example. Still, it is all loads of fun.
