Arrow 4×09: “Dark Waters”

Oliver Queen continues his mayoral campaign with a charity event, sponsoring the cleaning of the Star City Bay, with the support of Team Arrow, and a “remarkable” turnout from the presumed dead city. But the glory is short-lived when a drone starts shooting at everyone, controlled by none other than Damien Darhk.

Flash x Arrow: “Legends of Today & Yesterday”

This season’s epic Flash/Arrow crossover event was used to further set up the new show, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, for its winter premiere (as if using all previous 7 Arrow episodes weren’t enough of a waste of time). Continue reading

Arrow 4×05: “Haunted”

With a feral Sara out and about in Star City, she’s left quite a trail: dead gangbangers and drug dealers everywhere and she has an awful habit of attacking girls with short, brunette hair… girls that look a lot like Thea.

Quentin and Laurel are on the search for their missing rabid family member, following the trail of the deathly blonde woman that is killing randoms and obnoxiously barking at passerby cats. Continue reading

Arrow 4×04: “Beyond Redemption”

Who’s still the worst character on Arrow? Captain Lance! Congratulations!

With Laurel and Thea (and Sara) returning from their trip to the hot tub time machine and Oliver running for Mayor, things are looking up in Star City! Not. Now, not only is the city being terrorized by Damien Darhk, who is probably *maybe spoiler alert* Felicity’s father, the own police department has turned on itself, stealing drugs and killing the officers who actually, for once in this city, do their job. Continue reading

Arrow 4×02: “The Candidate”

In Starling City, there’s one thing you can always count on: the mayor will be murdered. And in newly-named Star City, there’s no difference. With Damien Darhk intent on the complete destruction of the city, he’s dedicated to keeping it as pathetic as possible, including killing any mayoral candidates.

With Thea finally feeling the aftermath of the Lazarus Pit, Oliver is severely worrying and tries (multiple times) to give her one of his classic, ‘I’m-better-than-you’ lectures. Continue reading

Arrow 4×01: “Green Arrow”

“Felicity Smoak, you have failed this omelette.”

Just when I thought angsty Oliver Queen was unbearable, we’re introduced to domestic Oliver Queen, who is a master at cooking eggs, planting engagement rings in soufflés and having brunch with married couples. The most boring five minutes in television history.

Back in newly branded, Star City, Black Canary, Speedy and Diggle take to the streets, trying to stop an armed robbery by the “Ghosts” that are attacking the city, and are outdone by them, once again causing the team to lose.  Continue reading

Arrow 3×23: “My Name Is Oliver Queen”

Where Team Arrow and co. left off, Ra’s al Ghul announced his plan to decimate Starling City as part of Oliver’s ascension to Ra’s, and Laurel, Diggle, Felicity, Malcolm and Ray were all locked in a cell, exposed to the bioweapon, and left to die.

The episode starts off shortly after the events of the last, showing our Team Arrow, minus Oliver, awakening after their “near-death” with the bioweapon, and Malcolm announcing his plan with Oliver to inoculate them all from the effects of the virus. Continue reading

Arrow 3×22: “This Is Your Sword”

Previously on Arrow, his name was Oliver Queen. Now, he is a psychotic assassin, with no morals, and has been brainwashed by the League of Assassins, who have renamed him “Al Sah-him”.

With Nyssa captured and back in Nanda Parbat, Ra’s al Ghul continues toward getting Nyssa and Al Sah-him (Oliver) married. And in order for Oliver to complete his ascension to becoming the next Ra’s al Ghul, he must also use the alpha and omega bioweapon and destroy Starling City.  Continue reading
