I'm still liking it as well. I found it interesting that during the transition scenes, when they use aerial footage for the city, they were using different cities as their backdrop. The daytime scene early was the Baltimore Inner Harbor and later, the night time scenes were 2 different cities.
There was just that one moment (unless I misheard) where the plot was 24-like ludicrous. Arrow asks the Detective how he knew he was in trouble and he says something like "your ankle monitor got broken in the fight". So what, he was in the guy's house just outside the bedroom and broke in that fast? Still, that was minor and the story is pretty good. I'm hopeful that those of you with extensive knowledge of the comics will at least try to limit speculation on what should happen in the future. For example, the comment on Laurel and who she may become is more than I want to know in advance. I'm not telling anyone what they can comment on, but if future predictions start popping up, I guess I'll have to pop out.
