ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 18, “Salvation” / Ep. 19, “Unfinished Business”

21 Aug

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! When last we left things, the Queen clan was getting into one mess after another. Ollie has had to deal with an assassination attempt on Malcolm Merlyn, unknown to him, ordered by Ollie’s mom! And Moira’s plan failed, leaving her to contend with a Malcolm looking for the person behind the attempt on his life. This also revealed to both Ollie and Diggle that the assassin Deadshot is still alive, which is of bad news to the latter man in that duo. Also, Thea is dating some dude named Roy from The Glades, which is odd. She’s doing better on the dating scene than Ollie, whose newest girlfriend has moved out of town to recover from injuries given to her by his murderous ex-girlfriend (long story there). And Tommy is still dating Laurel, so it’s not all bad. Well, maybe not, but let’s find out for ourselves… Continue reading

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 16, “Dead to Rights” / Ep. 17, “The Huntress Returns”

11 Aug

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! When last we left the rewatch, Ollie and Diggle had to bring tech girl Felicity into their vigilante party, when her information on the still disappeared Walter leads them to a suspect: Walter’s wife and Ollie’s mom, Moira. Moira herself is not cool with this kidnapping engineered by Malcolm Merlyn, so she makes the most rational decision she can: hire the Chinese Triad via China White to kill Malcolm! Also, Thea meets some boy named Roy, but that go anywhere, mark my words. Anyhoo, let’s get back to it… Continue reading

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 14, “The Odyssey” / Ep. 15, “Dodger”

1 Aug

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! Last time: Thanks to Felicity revealing to Ollie what she knows about Walter’s investigation prior to his vanishing, we now have a new suspect in that vanishing for the Arrow Duo: Ollie’s mom, Moira! Ollie seems reluctant to believe all this, even after her suspicious behavior is apparent to him and to Diggle, so Ollie pays a visit to her mom as The Hood! Has Moira failed this city? Continue reading

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 12, “Vertigo” / Ep. 13, “Betrayal”

24 Jul

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! When last we checked in on season one, Ollie was recovering from his brutal encounter with the Dark Archer, and dealing with a whole new set of problems. One being Walter Steele being kidnapped, unaware the kidnappers were Malcolm Merlyn and Ollie’s mom, Moira! Thea thinks Moira is having an affair with Malcolm, and gets into a drug-fueled car wreck, and now facing drug possession charges. Quentin is using his daughter’s new connection with The Hood to spring a trap to capture the vigilante. And Tommy…well, he’s still got to open that nightclub with Ollie, so…that’s taking some time. Anyhoo, let’s jump back into things, shall we? Continue reading

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 10, “Burned” / Ep. 11, “Trust But Verify”

14 Jul

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! As you can recall, last summer I attempted to rewatch the first season of Arrow as I had not thoroughly recapped it unlike the seasons since. Well that ran into a few delays, mainly recapping all the big DC superhero shows on the CW that fall, so getting back into that groove was just impossible. Now with that season of television FINALLY done, I thought now would be the best time to finish up this season one rewatch. Fingers crossed. Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×23, “Lian Yu” recap

25 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads! It’s season finale time, and last time we were all here, we got quite a setup.  Ollie was put in the unenviable position to free our season’s big bad, Adrian Chase, when Adrian’s associates kidnapped all of Team Arrow, even his hidden son!  Discovering Adrian had made his way to Lian Yu to setup some final confrontation between the two, Ollie knew he had to get some help, and enlisted Malcolm Merlyn and Nyssa al Ghul.  But once they all got to the island, he still had to get one more hand to help him in this fight: the imprisoned Deathstroke/Slade Wilson!  How will this wobbly team-up going to fare against all those bad guys?  Well, before we get to the shocking result, let’s check in on another ticking clock… Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×22, “Missing” recap

18 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  We’re on the tail end of the season, and it seems we are going out on a good note.  The big bad of the season, Adrian Chase, has been captured and imprisoned, which I’m sure is a relief to everyone in Team Arrow.  So I guess there’s no big city ending threat this season and the next two episodes is gonna be the gang just kicking back and enjoying some quiet time catching up with their favorite books or TV shows.

Yeah, I didn’t think that either, especially after seeing that grin on Adrian in his jail cell.  So let’s see what’s in store now for the Team…in a minute… Continue reading

Welcome back, Arrowheads, to the end of season three of Arrow! It’s been a long road of twists and turns, but here we are, as the Heir to the Demon, aka Al-Sah-him, aka The Arrow, aka Oliver Queen, is about to cement his place in the League of Assassins. He’s already been married off to a reluctant Nyssa, seemingly gassed his former teammates with a deadly virus, the same virus he fought to stop being unleashed in Hong Kong years ago, and now that he has to unleash on Starling City! Can all the lunacy, betrayals, and tragedy that have happened all season be solved in this season finale? Probably not, but let’s see what happens anyway…

7 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads! You’re back in time for the wedding no one expected (and all but Ra’s al Ghul didn’t want): the marriage of Oliver Queen aka Al Sah-him to Nyssa! Besides getting a VERY reluctant bride, afterwards, Ollie gets to have his honeymoon in Starling, where he’ll unleash the Alpha/Omega virus on his hometown! Meanwhile, Thea has found out Roy is alive, and Team Arrow is trying to move on without their fearless leader. You think they’re getting wedding invites? Continue reading
