Arrow: “Penance”; Legends of Tomorrow: “Shogun”

This week’s Arrow features a strong action plot, as the team try to rescue a reluctant Diggle. They undercut the story somewhat by having the Ragman needlessly continue on, when he could have easily rescued Wild Dog. It would have made more sense to have Rory stay away from the team just a bit longer, rather than artificially prevent his assistance when it is most needed.

In the flashback, Ollie takes the Bratva’s worst, final test.

On Legends of Tomorrow, the Waverider has a foxy stowaway, Nate proves his mettle, and the Legends are big in Japan.
