* Actually, just about every Felicity/Oliver moment in this episode is pretty awesome for Felicity. She's [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in being a classy]] {{Badass}} and is standing up to Oliver and his atrocious mood. Even better, she's still doing her job like a pro the entire time. One of the best moments? She coordinates communications between Diggle and Oliver, finds out that Oliver is standing in a [[LaserHallway bomb-rigged room]], picks up his train of thought to find a solution, begins a panic-fueled ramble, stops herself, snarks at Oliver, and finds a way to deactivate the bomb. Then she promptly heads downtown to dismantle another bomb and almost gets shot.

* The new Vertigo is significantly more {{Badass}} than the original, managing to hold his own against the Arrow even after he's overcome the drug's effects.

* The season 1 flashbacks are really awesome since they make the viewers feel nostalgic about the early days of Arrow.

* From a writing standpoint, keeping the relationship between [[spoiler: Nyssa and Sara]] a heavy secret by posting false casting slides for [[spoiler: Nyssa]] that masked their relationship. It is damn impressive that the writers managed to keep something like that a secret in the age of the Internet and spoilers.
** Including it in general; by doing so, Arrow has become the first serious outside-of-comics superhero show or movie to depict an openly gay relationship onscreen, which is a pretty awesome move for them. The announcement that the Flash spin-off is going to include Pied Piper is also a win too.

* After the tragic death of Sara Lance, a group of fans, including even Caity Lotz, were so unsatisfied with her death that [[https://www.change.org/p/the-executive-producers-and-writers-of-arrow-bring-sara-back-the-canary-lives-initiative they started a petition]] to bring her back. Eventually, the CW announced an Arrow Spin-Off with Lotz in it. [[spoiler:But it also sadly motivated the creators to kill off Laurel in the very season Sara was resurrected.]]

* In the more traditional sense, the entirety of Oliver vs Prometheus in this episode:
** The fight opens with Oliver shooting an arrow. Previous villains would've [[NoSell no sell-ed]] the shot, or just caught it. Prometheus ''cuts it in half lengthwise '''with a throwing star'''''.
** The fight choreography was even better than usual, the pair staying close together and truly brawling.
** Wild Dog comes in and knocks Prometheus' sword away with one bullet- from across the room.

* After the Arrowverse has had an issue for so long with its heroes keeping secrets from each other that inevitably form a huge rift when they get out, Prometheus actually forms his whole plan on it happening yet again. What happens instead? Oliver immediately admits to the entire team how he was tricked into killing Billy, resulting in Felicity assuring him that she places the blame squarely on Prometheus, and the others insisting on sticking by his side against his orders. This would ''not'' have happened in seasons three or four.

*So how do you manage to single handedly end one of the darkest episodes of the season with a happy note? [[spoiler:BRINGING BACK LAUREL LANCE.]]

[[folder: Episode 7: Vigilante]]
* Vigilante at one point ''[[ImprobableAimingSkills shoots Artemis' arrow]]'', causing it to explode into splinters. And in [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome beautiful slow motion,]] too.
* Oliver can shoot an arrow faster than Vigilante can shoot someone. With the gun against their head. And it's a machine gun.
* The episode does not take the easy route and leaves Vigilante's identity a mystery; this now means there are ''two'' fully masked individuals in season 5 who could literally be ''anyone''. Pretty ballsy, considering the last Arrowverse show to do similar was Series/TheFlash2014, with Zoom.

* The entire fight scene in the rigged building. It ends with Oliver gliding through the explosion and hitching a ride on Chruch's helicopter with his trick arrow. After falling of said helicopter, he saves himself with a ''parachute trick arrow''.

* Curtis giving a well deserved ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Oliver about how he acted towards him and the other recruits and temporarily quitting. Remember, this is CURTIS we are talking about; a young man who si not the most physically intimidating talking down Oliver Queen, the GREEN ARROW.

* To escape the LotusEaterMachine, original Team Arrow plus Ray has to fight their way past Malcolm Merlyn, Deathstroke, Damien Dahrk, and their various henchmen. Watching them all wipe the floor with these guys is beautiful, with special mention to Thea firing an arrow for Sara to grab and stab Dahrk with.

** It's even better when you consider each team member's opponent. Malcolm turned Thea into a weapon for his own purposes after she came to him for help, Darhk murdered Sara's sister, the Mirakuru soldiers killed Ray's wife, the Ghosts (alongside Darhk) indoctrinated Diggle's little brother, and Deathstroke capped a season's worth of pain by murdering Oliver's mother. Watching the team take on and slay their personal demons in a way they never could in the real world is ''incredibly'' satisfying.

* The entire fact that the episode's creators were in the seemingly impossible position of not only making the middle part of an epic crossover event (ie the part that can't rely on having a proper beginning ''or'' ending), but a celebration of ''Arrow'' on its own as the show's 100th episode, and they actually made it work, delivering a highly moving character examination of Oliver Queen using the show's entire history and also providing the action goods in the alien story.
