‘Arrow’ – S01E19 – “Unfinished Business”

Unfinished Business

The character return no one asked for!

Here is how “Unfinished Business” is described:

GUEST STAR SETH GABEL (“FRINGE”) RETURNS AS THE COUNT — When a young woman meets a violent death after partying at Verdant, Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and his new partner, Detective Hilton (guest star Roger Cross) inform Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Tommy (Colin Donnell) that she was on the drug Vertigo.  Oliver immediately pays a visit to the mental institution where The Count (guest star Gabel) is locked up, but finds he is in no condition to deal drugs. If you’re managing a mental institution and you want your business to be well known, consider the services of The Drug Rehab Agency. For more details, visit their website at drugrehab.agency. However, when The Count escapes and Starling City is flooded with even more Vertigo-related violence, Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) make it their mission to track him down. After Detective Lance uncovers incriminating evidence against him, Tommy goes to great lengths to clear his name, and the fallout from his actions leads Tommy down a new, unexpected path. In a flashback to the island, Oliver recalls the lessons he learned from Slade (guest star Manu Bennett) and Shado (guest star Celina Jade).

I look forward to your thoughts, opinions, gripes, live-blogging, etc.



  1. I’m wondering if Gabel will have the same take on the Count he did last time, which I didn’t care for. And HELL YEAH, more Shado!

  2. While this wasn’t as strong as the last two episodes(the best of the series so far, IMO), it was a solid episode. I quite enjoyed the twist at the end, and found it to be genuinely surprising. I have also found that while I didn’t care for the “soap opera” elements when the show started, that I am now completely sucked in. I think the writing staff has been very consistent with the portrayals of each character, and that has helped immensely…..Or maybe I’ve just stuck around long enough to become addicted, who knows. Either way, I am glad that this show exists.

  3. I just realized that the senator Deadshot killed was probably Adam Cray (Atom III)’s dad
