Arrow - "Lost in the Flood"

Arrow – “Lost in the Flood” Review

Arrow is back for it’s penultimate episode. Things have been ramping up for the past few episodes. That is something that Arrow is really good at. As the end of a season approaches, it raises to fever pitches until it is clear that something needs to be done. in this case it is nukes going…

Arrow - "Code of Silence"

Arrow – “Code of Silence” Review

Team Arrow is currently spinning desperately trying to figure out why exactly Darhk is making his play. Why would he let his wife run for mayor if he only wanted to destroy the city. In some ways that makes perfect sense. By having her in the office he would be able to more easily collapse…

Arrow - "Sins of the Father"

Arrow – “Sins of the Father” Review

Nyssa is still trying to claim that Oliver is her husband. At least she’s trying to get Oliver to do what she wants by drawing him in and using Thea as leverage. Oliver isn’t quite keen on killing Malcolm though. Despite listing off all the terrible things that Malcolm has done, Oliver knows that just…

Arrow - "Unchained"

Arrow – “Unchained” Review

Felicity is in with the team. She’s quite jazzed about being Overwatch. Things are not as clear with her position at Palmer Tech. During a dry runthrough of a presentation she was really fumbling about with the presentation. Between being in a wheelchair and not being a natural presenter it was bound to be clunky.…

Arrow - "Brotherhood"

Arrow – “Brotherhood” Review

Darhk is out there literally burning money. He wants the city dead. HIVE needs a place that they can work and nothing is better than a city that has fallen to such disrepair and degradation that no one would try to nose in on any of the shady business going on there. What was interesting…

Arrow - "Haunted"

Arrow – “Haunted” Review

Sara is out of her cage and she’s dangerous. On one hand she is saving people that are in danger. However as soon as she saves them, she attacks them all the same. She’s an equal opportunity attacker. The problem is she’s killing her opponents and leaving a trail of bodies behind. She’s a danger…

Arrow - "Restoration"

Arrow – “Restoration” Review

Felicity was real reminiscent of the old times when it was just Oliver, Diggle and Felicity. They may be working as a team, but Oliver and Diggle are broken. Inorder to see them back again, we need something serious to happen to spur their relationship back onto less icy terms. The pair won’t even spend…

Arrow - "The Candidate"

Arrow – “The Candidate” Review

The episode opened with a team working as a well oiled team. Considering that Oliver is now the outsider on the team it’s surprising that they work so well. Considering that internally they have so much turmoil it’s surprising they can work together so well. I have to admit that the choreography was well done…

Arrow - "The Fallen"

Arrow – “The Fallen” Review

What perfect timing that Oliver walked into the loft moments after Thea was gored (and yes, I believe that’s the most appropriate term for what happened). It was just enough and just fast enough to get her to a hospital. Get her stabilized. However, it may not have been fast enough to spare Thea. The…

Arrow - "Broken Arrow"

Arrow – “Broken Arrow” Review

Spoilers. Oh so many spoilers. You’ve been warned. Roy is in custody. All prints and evidence pointed to Roy solely. He and the rest of Team Arrow (sans Oliver) did everything in their power to make sure that Oliver could’t be held. Roy essentially gave up his freedom to help Oliver. it’s noble, but rough…

Arrow - "Nanda Parbat"

Arrow – “Nanda Parbat” Review

Ra’s is well aware that Oliver Queen is not dead. Heck, he knows it and doesn’t particularly care. This is mainly because he knows that Oliver was not Sarah’s killer. It isn’t until Nyssa finds out and pushes for justice. Clearly, Daddy let Nyssa go especially after Thea called in the league so they could…

Arrow - "The Return"

Arrow – “The Return” Review

It’s great that we are seeing Quentin really react to the knowledge that Sara is dead. Laurel finding him in a bar is a nice reminder of their common struggles with addiction. Laurel didn’t spiral into the bottle this time. Quentin has and I think the difference is that one of them has an outlet…

Arrow - "Canaries"

Arrow – “Canaries” Review

Count Vertigo was back in business this episode. instead of haunting Oliver, the focus was on Laurel. This was rather fitting as we got to get a bit deeper into Laurel’s mindset as she settles deeper into her role as Canary. As much as one would hope that we have understood the motivations behind Laurel’s…

Arrow - "The Climb"

Arrow – “The Climb” Review

The League of Assassins are back in full swing with threats and reveals. Sarab, one of the League’s own will kill 50 people every day until Sarah’s killer is found. Only Sarab is the name that Maseo goes by now. Oliver has two days to find the murderer before this happens, which kicks the team…
