Man this episode went way back to basics
13 April 2018 | by highmarksreviewsSee all my reviews

Where to start? Arrow's troubled sixth season might just have found it's new high-point. "Fundamentals" is a triumph not just for its brutal SCPD battle, political element or family issues, but rather the psychological trauma that Oliver (Stephen Amell) had to tackle. The episode incorporated effects of past seasons and some great cinematography to craft a traumatic experience. Sadly enough, the season is coming to an end soon and I feel that themes like this could have played all the way through the first half of the season. With the supporting cast cut, exceptionally strong performances all around and the "return" of an amazing villain fueled this week's drama that stripped Oliver Queen down to his core and was probably one of the shows darkest chapters ever.
