ep: 2x01

If you remember back in S2, after the events of S1, Oliver actually retreats to the island, and I know that at that time, Greg Berlanti always pitch it as kind of Oliver’s “Fortress of Solitude” and for that perspective it was a nice mental break for me, or the character rather, so I am sad to see it go but I thought that destroying the Island was, like a lot of people say, full circle, so probably was time.
