  • Broken Base: This is either the best episode in the history of the show, or the worst. There is very little middle ground.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Evelyn crosses it when she becomes a willing accomplice to Prometheus' plan to break Oliver by faking her death; Jerkass doesn't even begin to describe her.
    • To Anatoly, Oliver torturing a mook to death even though he told him what he wanted to know sure puts him right on the line. When even a mob captain is shocked by your brutality and says you're becoming a monster, it's official: you're going off the deep end.
    • Advertisement:
    • Kovar crosses this when he intends to use sarin gas to murder thousands of people, all so he can overthrow the Russian government.
  • Narm: Kovar fails to recognize Oliver until his hood falls down (see Failed a Spot Check on the main recap page).
  • Narm Charm: A rare care of deliberate Narm, as Adrian snapping Evelyn's neck at first comes off as obviously fake...and then it turns out it actually was.

How well does it match the trope?
