Still, it was kind of silly the way they filmed & edited it. Heck, they made it seem like Merlin just jogged down to the Swords 'R Us at the outlet mall and picked up the weekly blood-stained special whilst Team Arrow was just chillin' in their lair.
Now here's a thought. Ra's is supposed to be the world's greatest warrior, and he easily defeated Green Arrow (that's what I'm calling him; so sue me) while somehow managing not to suffer hypothermia in his beachwear. If he had really wanted to kill Ollie, wouldn't he have directed his sword just a few inches higher and run right through the heart? That'll get the job done every time.
Instead, Ra's -- the world's greatest swordsman (George Clooney excepted) -- stabs Ollie in that particular side spot where heroes always seem to get shot and stabbed because it's possible to miss the major organs there (the shoulder area right under the collarbone being the other), and the hero can be back fighting crime in a day or two, seemingly no worse for the wear.
Surely Ra's knows where to stab a guy when a guy's gotta' be stabbed to death. My theory is he really wanted to miss because he just respects Ollie so darn much, and he's smart enough to know that Ollie was probably lying when he said he killed Sara. So he'll give Ollie the most outside chance imaginable of surviving. Which would really impress Ra's. But a veritably invincible warlord's gotta' do what he's gotta' do.
