#5 – Setup For The End Of Flashbacks
Despite my annoyance with how the show presented the flashbacks last week in terms of how they are setting up Oliver being rescued and all, I absolutely loved what we saw in this week’s episode on the island. The whole scenario of Konstantin using the Red Death drug on Oliver was incredibly intense to watch from start to finish, in the best ways possible. It was overwhelming to see all the flashes of some of Oliver’s most painful memories from the past few seasons. It was a great surprise to get to see Oliver hallucinate Laurel for that brief second as she was the one that made him not take his own life. I can’t wait to see how they end this next week, mostly because I’m just so done with the flashbacks, despite the good parts.
