The following description is from the CW site and is more detailed than usual.
SEASON FINALE — Oliver and Diggle race to stop the Dark Archer from unleashing his vengeance on The Glades. However, they run into a roadblock after Detective Lance picks up Felicity for questioning. Tommy and Oliver’s already tumultuous relationship takes a turn for the worse after Oliver makes a confession about Laurel. After hearing of the danger in The Glades, Thea races to find Roy, inadvertently putting herself directly in the line of fire for Malcolm’s devious plan. On the island, Oliver, Slade and Shado (guest star Celina Jade) are locked in a life-or-death struggle against Fyers (guest star Sebastian Dunn) as his missiles lock on a full Ferris Air jetliner. Susanna Thompson also stars. David Barrett directed the episode with the teleplay written by Marc Guggenheim & Andrew Kreisberg and story by Greg Berlanti.

Great season finale.
Mr. Merlyn did not want to hurt Oliver, but he was willing to kill him. Complicated mind.
Oliver looked very good scaling the chain and using his body weight to break free. Shado did an excellent job of training him to snap necks.
Diggle shot a villain and minimized the need to explain how he found Oliver with his “I take back every joke I made about you sticking a tracking device in your boot.”
Tommy and Oliver were childhood friends so it must have hurt when Tommy said “I wish you had died on that island.” Their final moments together gave both of them an opportunity to make amends to each other. I am glad they did that.
I loved…loved…loved the warmth between Oliver and Laurel. Although he was in I-must-save-the-world mode, he did not brush her off. He calmly and lovingly shared his thoughts and feelings and she accepted them.
Holy public confession by Moira! “God forgive me. I have failed this city.” I notice she still played the "I did it to save my family" card but that won't save her.
Darwin, the dark one must have heard your cries for an explanation on how he could defeat the young, agile archer. Do you accept his explanation?
That was a decent fight between Arrow and Dark Archer. I was glad Diggle accompanied Arrow and helped to distract Dark Archer at the beginning of the battle. Of course, it was Arrow’s battle and he had to find the power within himself to defeat Dark Archer.
I enjoyed the flashbacks to the island. We see Oliver had grasped the concept of killing to survive and had mastered the bow. I guess we will see more details of his survival in season 2 because we do not know why he was the only one who left on the fishing vessel.
What do I think? Thanks for caring. *smiles* I ALWAYS care what you think!
I await your thoughts with baited breath!
(And that IS NOT a fishing reference)
Since Felicity used one of her laptops instead of a flash drive, it is possible that the detective extracted her name. Ah!
But I want to believe Felicity would cover her tracks too well to get caught.So...perhaps we are BOTH of the mind that it is a convenient plot point for Felicity to soften up Laurel's Detective Dad towards Arrow? A great job for a smart adorably cute blonde!
Billionaires have many perks. I was impressed that the reporters came to Moira's home instead of Queen Industries.
