ARROW Season 5×16, “Checkmate” recap

16 Mar

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Oliver and company had their fill of bad guy Prometheus, and so far, have no clue who this guy is.  What they don’t know is our Big Bad for the season is Star City’s own District Attorney, Adrian Chase!  This helpful yet mildly unstable public servant has a beef with Ollie, and may have another connection to Ollie’s past: being trained by the woman who helped him become the Hood, Talia Al Ghul!  Meantime, Felicity is getting in deeper with the computer hacking group HELIX, and Ollie’s current girlfriend, Susan, may have just gotten herself in trouble with Adrian.  Let’s see how Ollie reacts to discovering his new buddy is his new bad guy… Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×15, “Fighting Fire With Fire” recap

2 Mar

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  So we’ve had this whole Prometheus stuff hanging over this season, and now, it looks like Prometheus just launched another wave of pain against Oliver Queen.  Besides leaking that hidden autopsy report on Billy to the police, our baddie also leaked it to the press, which could lead to the end of Ollie’s term as mayor of Star City!  Also, Thea’s starting to remind Ollie of Mama Queen (and not in the best way, since Thea pretty much destroyed Susan’s career) and Felicity is really liking all that info she got from the mysterious Helix.  And with that crazy Vigilante guy running around, things can only get worse.  Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×12, “Bratva” recap

9 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  When we last left our dear old John Diggle, he had just managed to get out of jail after being framed for treason by a corrupt Army general.  A lot of that has to do with evidence given to Felicity by a super secret hacker cabal known as Helix, which also had a lot of other dirty dark secrets.  Add to that the discovery of a new Black Canary fill-in with ex-cop Dinah Drake, and it looks like its time for Team Arrow to get back to normal, right?  Well, let’s get to that in a second… Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×11, “Second Chances” recap

2 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  The Team had a surprise last time when the dead Laurel Lance came to see them, only to be revealed as the evil Laurel from Earth-2, sprung on them by Prometheus.  This encounter makes Ollie determined to make good on his promise to find someone to take the Black Canary mantle.  In other developments, Diggle is still stuck in prison, and thanks to some quick thinking on DA Adrian’s part, isn’t shipped off to some clearly uncertain end.  But what we should get to is the flashbacks, because Ollie is saved by Talia al Ghul!  Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×10, “Who Are You?” recap

26 Jan

Welcome back from Winter hiatus, Arrowheads!  When we left Team Arrow last year, things were not so rosy for them.  Quentin went into rehab, Curtis is estranged from his hubby, Evelyn turned on them to side with Prometheus, Diggle got busted by the military, and Prometheus tricked Ollie into killing Felicity’s cop boyfriend!  As if things couldn’t get worse, a familiar face appears in the Arrow HQ: Laurel Lance!  The DEAD Laurel Lance!  What is going on there?  Let’s hold on that for a second and focus on another big reveal that happens this episode… Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×07, “Vigilante” recap

17 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Team Arrow 2.0 has had its share of growing pains this season, but as bad as that has been, new villain Prometheus has really been keeping them off guard.  Ollie has been getting a bit more personal with reporter Susan Williams (who is totally investigating Ollie’s “stranded” years), Diggle is still a wanted man, and Quentin is blackout drinking and waking up with some of Prometheus’ throwing stars.  So what could make things worse in Star City and for Team Arrow 2.0? Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×06, “So It Begins” recap

10 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Ollie’s been having a tough time with both his day job and night job as of late.  But with some big moves as mayor and capturing crime boss Tobias Church as the Green Arrow, it looks all gravy.  But there are some problems brewing, like reporter Susan Williams finding out Ollie was not stranded on an island for five years.  And there’s the threat of Prometheus, who murders Church while in police custody!  Who is this guy who isn’t but could be Malcolm Merlyn?   Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×05, “Human Target” recap

3 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  When last we left Team Arrow 2.0, Ollie took a brief vacation to go break Diggle out of military jail for a crime he didn’t commit.  However, this setup for  Arrow‘s version of The A-Team is not to be, as the rest of the Team gets into it with Tobias Church, and losing Wild Dog as his prisoner.  So will they find Wild Dog before he gets turned into hamburger by the punch happy Church?  Before we find out that…   Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×04, “Penance” recap

27 Oct

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Last we left John Diggle, his return to the military hit a sizable end when he was framed for a crime he did not commit.  And add to that, he’s still feeling guilt over killing his corrupt baby brother, so he’s not gonna really put up much of a fight to prove his innocence.  But Lyla would not like their daughter /son to grow up without a father, so she goes to Ollie to get help breaking Dig out.  Will he help her?  Obviously the answer is “probably”, but what about his new team and all that trouble with Tobias Church?  And hey, what’s up with the Patrick Batman-esque D.A.?  Some of those answers are coming up… Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×03, “A Matter Of Trust” recap

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Last we left Ollie, he got himself a brand new team to help fight crime, and that’s, well, gonna take some work to get working like Original Team Arrow. Speaking of the Original Flavor Team, Thea has hired the not-quite sober Quentin to be the deputy mayor and Diggle finds himself in military prison framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Before you can say “how can things get worse?”, did we mention one of Ollie’s recruits lost their family thanks to a nuclear bomb Felicity sent their way? So, let’s settle in to see what happens… Continue reading
