From the moment Seth Gabel's face appeared in the teaser for this week's Arrow, I knew to keep my expectations in check. Count Vertigo has consistently been among the weakest of the show's major villains, mainly because of Gabel's tendency to play the character like a bad riff on Heath Ledger's Joker. And "State v. Queen" largely aligned itself with those lowered expectations. It was a perfectly decent installment, but not one that matched the generally higher standard Season 2 has managed so far.
