Arrow: Lian Yu

Season 5 of Arrow comes to an end with “Lian Yu.” That is, of course, the place Oliver allegedly spent his “five years in hell…” when he wasn’t in Hong Kong or Russia. It also later became Oliver’s personal super-prison, holding Deathstroke Slade Wilson and Captain Boomerang Digger Harkness. In the comics, Lian is the name of Roy Harper’s daughter, sort of Oliver’s granddaughter, who died an utterly pointless tragic death that angered many fans.

Arrow: Missing

Arrow has almost gotten to their finale, but first, they have to deal with the “Missing.” The news, good for once, is talking about Adrian Chase being behind bars. Quentin, Thea, and Oliver are in his office celebrating his new 70% approval rating. With the major threat dealt with, Quentin goes off to read Rene the riot act for not making it to the hearing for custody of his daughter. We also learn that today is Oliver’s birthday, and Thea teases him for having dinner plans with Felicity. Thea is also still moping about being such a dark and evil person.

That should be a banner day, shouldn’t it? Well,…

Arrow: Underneath

Last episode ended quite literally with a bang as Prometheus staged an attack on the Lair. Oliver and Felicity are trapped, alone, with the lights dimmed. Things get worse as they determine that at least part of the attack was an EMP. Not only do they not have power or communications, but you remember that…

Arrow: Dangerous Liaisons

The hunt for Adrian Chase/Prometheus continues in “Dangerous Liaisons.” ARGUS is following up on a report that Chase was seen in the arcade of a shut down amusement park, which really seems like something more fitting for a Batman villain. ARGUS is being backed up by Mr. Terrific and Wild Dog. To no great surprise,…

Arrow: Disbanded

  Last episode, Oliver was battered and beaten by Prometheus. Now, he’s still looking horrible, and is sticking by his pronouncement that the team is done. I think that’s horribly unfair of Oliver. Even if he’s done as a hero, I question why he gets to decide that for everyone else. Then again, he’s not…

Arrow: Kapiushon

As the season goes on, Arrow is getting a lot darker. We’ve seen the lengths Prometheus is willing to go to in order to get his revenge, and there’s been some ugly stuff. Oliver, our notional hero, is drifting along down the dark side himself. We see a lot of this in Kapiushon, the most…
