Wow, Stein can really be an idiot!
A well meaning genius of an idiot, but still an idiot.
Luckily, everything turned out as well as it probably would have anyway, but still.
(Oh, and I loved Gideon's almost comment at the end about the guys antics, LOL!)
Now they are starting to build on all the new friendships made, and redefine the original ones. Specifically, Mick and Leonard are realizing they have grown apart, as Leonard has grown as a person. Honestly, that had already begun before the series even started, but it came to a head here. Wonder how they will sort this out.
As to the main plot, it was good enough, considering I am only an occasional viewer of Arrow, and it never manages to hold my interest for long. But I had been wondering if the new archer was Diggle's son.
I am struggling a bit with the temporal mechanics on this show, and Rip's explanations. Each episode mostly makes sense with itself, but it's not really consistent from episode to episode. Or else Rip just makes up whatever he wants each time.
At the beginning of the series, Rip said that he picked all of them because none of them matter to the existing timeline, and that removing them would make no difference. But now Sarah and Ray's absence cause Star City to fall to Wilson Jr, if they don't survive this mission and get home? Which is it?!?
I suppose their importance to the timeline could have shifted because of the changes they made to the past. If they have made that timeline more fragile, now their presence makes all the difference, where before it was safe without them. But that's a rationalization though, and if it is the case, it should have been explained in the show, and it wasn't.
Anyway, a nice little lesson at the end, that every timeline is worth fighting for, even if it may cease to exist (never happen in the first place). There's still a chance it will
happen, if they don't all make it home, so they may as well make this a better place while they are here. (And, as far as fighting for a version of your friends that is not your version, Sarah did a way better job than Barry did on Earth 2: she left it better than how she found it!
And the scenes for next week:
