ARROW Season 5×19, “Dangerous Liaisons” recap

27 Apr

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Now that Adrian Chase has been revealed to be Prometheus, things should be better for Team Arrow, yeah?  Well, there’s still the tiny problem that Adrian has fleed his witness protection detail, and no one knows where he is.  Then there’s Felicity becoming more chummy with the hacker collective HELIX, and that can only explode in her and her friends’ face.  On the plus side, no flashbacks this week, so we can get straight to this… Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×18, “Disbanded” recap

30 Mar

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Previously, Ollie found himself prisoner of Adrian Chase/Prometheus, and got a lesson as to what kind of man he is, specifically a guy who probably enjoys murdering bad guys.  This educational experience really messed with Ollie’s head, so much so that when he was let go by Adrian, he immediately went back to Arrow HQ to tell the Team he’s shutting down the operation.  Sure, Ollie has had his little periods of wanting to pack this Green Arrow thing up, but this ordeal seems to have snapped ol’ Oliver Queen.  What does this mean for taking down Adrian?

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 5×13, “Spectre of the Gun” recap

16 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  And welcome to what we call “a Very Special Episode of Arrow” this week.  So if you were expecting more on Prometheus, well we get a little bit there, and if you were expecting more flashbacks with Talia al Ghul, you are out of luck.  So lets just get into this issue-centric episode… 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

Quickie Thoughts on Syfy’s New Friday Night Lineup

17 Jan

Stewart here…

Besides watching the new season of Banshee (a show clearly less “Nerdsquee” and more “WTFF?” territory), my Friday night TV watching is generally light. And with the recent news of the new season of Hannibal premiering in the summer (!), its going to be more so during the spring. However, as I had some spare time this Friday, I decided to check out the new lineup of shows on Syfy that night. Continue reading
