Review

In this chapter, Merlyn revealed his true nature in gorgeous flashback sequences. I adored the temple visuals, including the stunning guardian leopards leaping through the walls of the crumbling temple like holograms. The reveal of Merlyn’s true objective was the centerpiece however, and Ra’s al Ghul’s interest in the proceedings makes perfect sense. I wonder how long it will be before the true objective is integrated into Arrow’s on screen narrative. Given the context, I can’t wait. This is definitely, the best issue so far.
