I was going crazy about Vixen since the characters had supposedly met before and I didn't remember her. There is some kind of cartoon one offs going out there where Vixen met Oliver which is why he said their previous deal was "animated." That was a bit sneaky.
The action is a bit weird with enemy combatants with guns sort of waiting to shoot until someone knocks the guns out of their hands. I was pleased to see Darkh get his power source cut off and take a beating. He's been way too smug.
The Felicity thing is sort of a repeat of the previous Flash/Savage cross-over but I guess she's being consistent with her character even though it was a bit of a repeat. Kind of amped up in that her "walking away" coincided with her ability to walk away. Not sure of her thinking even though she knew that Oliver was forced to make a choice. Didn't help that there were several others who knew. Oliver does a poor job of explaining why that was so.
The two views of "parenting while you are a superhero" by Diggle and Vixen was interesting. Ultimately, Oliver chose Vixen's model for William's safety and so hopefully we won't have to deal with shows like this again.
Despite getting his butt kicked, Darkh won by having Oliver withdraw from the race so we will have to see the consequences of that and whether the totem that was destroyed was the source of Darkh's power or whether he has a backup.
I thought the show had some good ideas but was executed kinda poorly. I would give it a B- or C+.
