The song at the end. Ha!

I'm pretty sure we'll have another episode with Oliver saying he needs to stop being GA next season.

The episode in a vacuum was a good one but when it comes to all that came before. This episode was ****, retreading the same subject matter over and over. You could play a drinking game based on how many times Diggle needed a "private conversation "

As I said in another thread, this becomes even more obvious when you binge watch the show. They revisit the same themes over and over and over...

And not just with Oliver, but Felicity and Diggle too.

Diggle should've recorded Oliver during his time of angst and when he decided to not give up. Then next season, when Oliver decides to throw in the towel again, Diggle can just play him back this footage.

Well Oliver has dipped his pen in many inkwells too over the course of five seasons.

I think it's a mark of how good this season is that despite knowing I'd seen this arc before, I really didn't care because it felt different and I really enjoyed it.

It is nothing unique to Arrow. Stories, arcs and themes get repeated in lots of shows, movies, books and comics etc. It all lies in the execution. If they are done well, people wont mind if they seen it before.

that was an excellent ep. absolutely enjoyed it. sure some of the themes of self doubt may seem repetitive, but the execution of that this season is fantastic. its like these set of writers was saying-- this is how you should play out this plot. and now that standard has been set.

and that ending, really maxing out the Chase-as-Patrick Bateman vibe-- the blood splatter on the face, the funky music. its perfect

I got a big chuckle at the end with Chase blood on his clothes and that smirk on his face with that song playing in the background.
Just made me happy for some reason.

The theme of self doubt this season though is different IMO. Oliver was BROKEN and doubted himself. You could see in his body language that it was as if he had just given up completely.

Chase has been an incredible villain this season. He was pretty unpredictable to be revealed as Prometheus. He's been a dark and twisted character who he himself is unpredictable. And once they found out it was him, he was working WITH Oliver and co. as the DA and they couldn't do a thing about it until Felicity and Helix were able to hack his scrambler and out him publicly as Prometheus.
