Finding Thea (Willa Holland) near death with no hope of recovery other than a dip in the Lazarus Pit, Oliver (Stephen Amell) leads his team back to Nanda Parbat where he chooses to trade his life for that of his sister. Teased a few episodes back, the full introduction of the Lazarus Pit opens the door the the mystical and magical side of the DCU which (other than Constantine) the TV universe has been slow to develop. Keeping with the comics, the Pit renews life but also introduces a temporary madness within those it saves (a madness which has become more permanent for Ra’s given the number of dips he’s taken over the years). “The Fallen” refuses to give us an exact age of Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), but based on various conversations it’s obvious he’s looking forward to retiring after leading the League of Assassins for a very long time.

In an episode that flips the format of the show’s First Season Oliver (Stephen Amell) returns to the island in the present along with Thea (Willa Holland) while we see lengthy flashbacks to Ollie working in Starling City for Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) during his missing years. The island storyline allows for the return of Deathstroke (Manu Bennett), who was freed from the A.R.G.U.S. cell by Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) to teach Ollie and Thea a lesson, and another secret falling by the wayside as Thea learns just what a bastard her biological father truly is.

No more secrets. Finding a way to work through major plot points naturally over the course of a single episode “Canaries” continues a shift in the show as Oliver (Stephen Amell) must face the fact that the war on crime in Starling City isn’t only his any more. It takes a fight with Laurel (Katie Cassidy), an argument with Roy (Colton Haynes), and some sound advice by Diggle (David Ramsey) to force the green-hooded hero to realize the city and team he’s returned to isn’t the same one he left.

However, the would-be kingpin’s past will come to bite him in the ass when Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) discovers the identity of Brick’s first victim.
