In case you’re busy marching the streets of Berkeley or New York and the mid-season finale of ARROW is waiting in your DVR queue, I’m not gonna be a jerk and spoil the cliffhanger. Er, cliff-faller. I am gonna say that in Batman/DC mythology there is this thing called The Lazarus Pit. This is the magic pit that reincarnates Ra’s al Ghul every time he is killed, each time with a different European accent. So, without spoiling anything except to say that at the end of this episode there is a terrific duel between Arrow and Ra’s al Ghul, I mention that JUST IN CASE A MAJOR CHARACTER WERE TO DIE IN THE DC-TV UNIVERSE, there is this thing called the Lazarus Pit, which is owned by the League of Assassins, which brings people (but generally only major characters) back to life.
