After a few weeks in recovery, the Arrow is back! And he certainly looked the part at the end of the "Uprising" when he let the citizens and, more importantly, criminals of 'his' city know that the green-hooded hero had returned. Returned, recuperated and not that happy to learn the “Canaries” got in the game while he was on the sidelines. Okay, Canary. Singular. I just wanted to work the title in there since the episode is lacking in DCU Easter eggs...

”Arrow
... Of The Week
"Canaries" is another episode following the midseason premiere that's far more focused on executing the story than being cute with Easter eggs. I guess that makes sense; Arrow was busy bringing its hero back to life. And back to Starling to help the team battle the villain of the week. It was fitting to have Peter Stormare's Werner Zytle (a.k.a. Count Vertigo) return for the episode named after the crime-fighting sisters, since he was also the bad guy during the installment that saw Sara bite the dust. And, just like in the premiere, the vertigo drug allowed our heroes to face and overcome their fears.

The Black Canary battles weren't quite as exciting as Oliver versus Oliver, and they just made me miss Caity Lotz' version. I did like how the Count, fresh from his escape during a transfer to/from Iron Heights, commented on her new suit though. And how Sara made a point to stress the Dinah half of her sister's name. It was also a relief for Laurel to finally break the bad news to Quentin, so thank you Sin for getting that ball rolling. It looks like Laurel's Canary will be a permanent member of the Team. I wonder if she'll get a case in The Quiver? Oh, Arrow, Arsenal, Dig (who's been the center of a recent rumor) and Felicity were around too.
