13 May

arrow302
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…

ARROW Season 3×22, “This Is Your Sword” recap

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

ARROW Season 3×21, “Al Sah-him” recap

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So previously, Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak finally had sex. Yes, I know this is a great thing for shippers, and a questionable plot move (like most of them this season) for many critics. On the other hand, its good to finally get that tension and wishy-washiness both of them have had all season put aside to have that brief break from all this lunacy together. Oh, and in order to save a dying Thea using Ra’s magic health hot tub, Ollie had to finally take that offer to be the next head of the League of Assassins. The main takeaway of this is Ollicity sex, everyone.

ARROW Season 3×20, “The Fallen” recap

23 Apr

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So, Team Arrow is dealing with all the fallout of Ra’s machinations to get Ollie to be the next League of Assassins president. Quentin has cracked down on everyone, Roy had to fake his death and leave town, and just when things couldn’t get more messed up, Ra’s stabbed Thea with a sword! Some companies refuse to take “no” as an answer when it comes to hiring people. I wonder how Ra’s new sales pitch to Ollie works out this episode. Continue reading

ARROW Season 3×19, “Broken Arrow” recap

15 Apr

arrow302 Welcome back, Arrowheads! Previously: things went galactically bad for Team Arrow as Quentin decided to hammer out his betrayal issues by hunting them down. Then he found out from Ra’s (a reliable source, I guess) that Ollie’s the Arrow, and things got not remotely better. To save everyone else, he turns himself in in a plea deal. But the rest of the Team didn’t like that, and so, Roy appears in front of the convoy transporting Ollie…as the Arrow! Way to go, Roy, with lifetime imprisonment?

ARROW Season 3×18, “Public Enemy” recap

1 Apr

arrow302Welcome back, Arrowheads! Ollie is learning that turning down Ra’s offer of becoming the next Demon’s Head is harder than he thought. Ra’s is a persistent headhunter for good employees, because he has pretend Arrows murdering criminals, but now its escalated to murdering the mayor and threatening several people in the room where said mayor gets shafted, like Felicity, Ray, and daddy and Laurel Lance. I’m sure Quentin will take this well and behave in a sane and logical manner… Continue reading

ARROW Season 3×17, “Suicidal Tendencies” recap

26 Mar

arrow302Welcome back, Arrowheads! Last we left Team Arrow, Ollie got offered the President of the League of Assassins job by Ra’s al Ghul. He turned it down, but Ra’s is making certain Ollie’s going to take the job, staging fake Arrow-centric killings or not. Ra’s daughter Nyssa is also taking care of business, by training Laurel to be less of a sloppy fighter. But hey, right now Ollie has to get his tux cleaned off, because he has to be the best man at Diggle’s (second) wedding to Lyla! Continue reading

ARROW Season 3×16, “The Offer” recap

19 Mar

Welcome back from that brief break, Arrowheads! A lot of things went down last episode, so let’s just hit the big bullet points. Ray Palmer got his ATOM suit working along with his mojo by sleeping with Felicity. Thea gave up dear ol’ dad to the League of Assassins, and when that wasn’t enough to cure her of that whole “murdering a friend’s sister under the influence of mind-altering drugs” guilt, she offered herself up to Nyssa. Ollie and Diggle went to retrieve Malcolm from Nanda Parbat, but got captured. And then, we discover Ollie’s last experience with Ra’s was the world’s deadliest job interview, because Oliver Queen was offered the job of being the head of the League. Hopefully the League has a good dental plan.

ARROW Season 3×15, “Nanda Parbat” recap

Welcome back, Arrowheads! A lot has gone on in Starling City since Ollie has come back (again), and most of it involves family. Thea knows about his secret vigilante persona (which she takes well) and that Malcolm made her kill Sara (which she takes badly). I have a bad feeling she’s not going to handle this alliance with her crazy father against Ra’s al Ghul very well. Meanwhile, Ollie is becoming aware he’s part of a team now than just being a team leader, Felicity is full-on helping Ray Palmer with his ATOM exo suit, and Laurel’s dad is a bit broken by a number of things that have come to light. Things are getting really dicey around Team Arrow, aren’t they? Continue reading

ARROW Season 3×14, “The Return” recap

18 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So, Thea knows about Oliver being the Arrow! Quentin knows about Laurel being the Canary and Sara being dead! While Quentin might be off to get a drink (which, uh-oh), Ollie and Thea go off to train on Lian Yu! Also, we find out in those five years missing, Ollie has been back to Starling City, but for what?
