* The amazing fight between Oliver and Prometheus/[[spoiler:Adrian]]. Right before they are about to throw down, the two take a moment to just stare at each other, to take in the fact that now, with everything out in the open, they can be free act according to how they ''really'' feel about each other. Then Oliver drops his bow, silently challenging his enemy to go with him [[GoodOldFisticuffs the old-fashioned way]]. Prometheus complies by getting rid of his sword, and, with a look of utter and complete rage and hatred on his face, charging right at him. What follows is easily one of the most brutal fights in the series; the two men discard finesse for barrages of punches, kicks, and knees, and using each other as tackling dummies. It is the perfect depiction of a fight between two men who absolutely hate each other's guts and would love nothing more than to see the other suffer.

* Vigilante is on a tear throughout the whole episode, going after Oliver (Oliver himself gets a moment of awesome for standing up to Vigilante as an unarmed civilian) and withstanding a lot of punishment in the process-Dinah's Canary Cry, the rooftop battle with Prometheus, and a fight with half of Team Arrow in the climax, in which he takes down Wild Dog and Diggle and gets two exploding T-Spheres in the face before managing to escape.[[/folder]]

* On a meta level, the way the series brilliantly suckered fans with the revelation that [[spoiler: Prometheus was actually Adrian Chase. Very few fans guessed it and as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgwA0ASZIOc this montage shows]] fans were truly stunned by this unexpected turn, showing how well the writers had set the twist up.]]

*Prometheus vs. Vigilante! Vigilante manages to catch a throwing star that he really had no way of knowing was coming, followed by the two getting into a pitched hand to hand fight with Vigilante getting shoved off a rooftop, only for him to walk away from that and come back later. Followed by the reveal of Prometheus' identity in the middle of the episode as opposed to an ending cliffhangover to give the rest of his behavior in his identity a sinister DramaticIrony.

* Meta: Whatever ones belief on the issue is credit is given to the show for having the guts to do an entire episode on the debate on gun control and yet still remain pretty neutral. Throughout the episode both sides of the debate are given and no ones arguement overcomes the other. For a comic book show to tackle on a incredibly political yet sensitive topic is a badass moment of bravery.
* For the first time we see Oliver handle a situation as mayor of Star City instead of as the Green Arrow . Throughout the episode he demonstrates the ability to be firm but still gentle, managing to find a middle ground on gun control in Star City and finally managing to talk the shooter out of not only shooting up the hospital but also out of killing himself. And this is all done without him putting on the costume!

* While the action of this season was all in all quite mediocre up to this point, the chase sequence between Spartan, Green Arrow and H.I.V.E.'s men is put into scene nothing short of awesome.

* For all the controversy about her actual death, Laurel was five kinds of awesome throughout most of this episode. Thea suggests that they go out and Help Oliver, Diggle and Andy because Diggle's safety procedures have made the Arrowcave safe. Laurel says it's safer with them in it. She's right because soon after, Malcolm and three goons show up. While Thea goes after Malcolm, Laurel manages to take out three fully trained league members by herself without suffering a single scratch. She then tells Dahrk off in prison, before deciding to take the DA position offered to her earlier (because even with less than three years under her belt, she's that good of a prosecutor in the arrowverse) She then heads over to the prison, where she takes out even more mooks. Yeah, Dahrk kills her, but at least the entire episode was one DyingMomentOfAwesome for her.

* What's a non-powered guy to do in a battle with a huge gang? Grapple onto a helicopter and ride through the whole thing, punching anyone he comes across.
