Is it just me, or is Katie Cassidy (Laurel) getting thinner and thinner?  I know she's supposed to be a drug addict on screen, but I'm not sure if that's method acting or type-casting at this point.  I find it ironic that you mentioned her eyes in the article, because it appears to both me and my wife that her eyes are beginning to consume her head.  The woman is starting to look so shot out and emaciated that her eyes are the only remaining part of her head as the rest withers away.  (I realize that in Hollywood it's just as likely that she has an eating disorder as a drug problem, but either way, the woman does not appear to be in good health.  And with a fairly low budget show like this, and the fact that the characters addiction is three levels down on the sub-plot priority list, I don't think it's just great make-up.)

My concerns for the health of the actress notwithstanding, this was a solid episode.  I liked seeing Sean Maher again (huzzah for Firefly actors finding work again! That's two in this show now!), but I agree that his character of Shrapnel was way underplayed and a complete throwaway.  That's too bad, too, because Sean Maher could likely draw the character out to be a real psycho, if he was given the material and the screen time.

 Cap...not sure if shes emaciated or if she just seems to be wearing larger and larger fake eyelashes.  I agree its not a great look and she is a beautiful woman.

 The sad part is that it may not be makeup and clothing.  Katie Cassidy is a beautiful woman with curves. Lets hope she isn't another hollywood actress/model consumed (literally) by an eating disorder.

So who was the character with the split mask in the preview for next week? Is that Deathstroke with a different look from what we saw in season 1? Looks badass whoever it is...

 Cap, I was just saying the same things to my girlfriend. The actress playing Laurel is starting to look like she isn't healthy. She getting that emacited look. I sincerely hope she's okay.
