Well, I don't know about anyone else but this really came across like an exit episode. It wouldn't shock me if the original plan was for KC to leave and they recently changed their minds. Otherwise this whole episode just feels pointless. So, what? Laurel is gonna go back to E2
Honestly, I struggled to get through this one. On one hand it was beyond time to have an episode dedicated to an all-female team-up but on the other, this was just so poorly written and half-assed and made me annoyed at all the characters at times, even Felicity.
Felicity was too OTT in believing in Laurel, even after her actions in this very episode. Dinah was too unbelieving and a complete hypocrite. I think Sara was probably the only one who made sense about the idea of redemption but it all came too little too late. And I'm sorry but backsliding into her old BS life and then saying "Oh I changed my mind!" is not a redemption. It's called "These Writers Can't Be Bothered."
And the fact that BS is essentially still living E1 Laurel's life by wearing her BC outfit is yikes and creeps me out. There is no need for her to wear that outfit. She can still be BC number 5255 and wear something else.
I think the only thing I truly enjoyed about the episode was the cute Felicity and Sara banter, Oliver calling their baby "Precious cargo" (MY HEART!!!) and Olicity chilling out on the sofa.
I've also reached the point where I'm outright ignoring the flashforwards because I despise them. Truly the biggest mistake the show has ever made. HATE.
