The titular hero takes a backseat on his own show once again to give some other characters air time. A recent subplot takes center stage, more of Emiko’s background is investigated, and another character takes their leave.
There’s a lot going on as Team Arrow deals with issues of “Inheritence.” A recurring theme on the show seems to be unexpected betrayals. I’m mildly surprised the entire team isn’t utterly, ravingly paranoid by this point.
Much of this season of Arrow (the second to last, we recently learned) has been accented by flashes forward to a not so great future for Star City.
Team Arrow struggles to adjust to their new status quo in “Training Day.” While the team has some growing pains getting used to their new role, not to mention pressure from an old enemy, the future group is getting used to each other, and Laurel gets a new subplot. There’s a lot of interesting things going on this episode.
This episode title of Arrow, “Brothers and Sisters,” is fairly ironic, considering I believe every sibling relationship on the series has eventually been revealed to be some kind of step or half kind.
Arrow has hit many milestones in its run, and now adds another trophy with episode #150, which is farther than a lot of shows make it.
I call myself a “hero geek” a lot. For me, I use that to mean I’m a huge fan of superheroes in comics, novels, tv shows, and movies.
