ARROW Season 8×07, “Purgatory” recap

5 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’ve been leading Oliver Queen and friends on these missions for The Monitor to fight the coming Crisis all season, and we have finally come to the last leg of this journey before we face the end…of Arrow. And all of this has brought Ollie and friends to the place where it all began for him: Lian Yu! So what will Ollie do, now that he has accepted he won’t survive Crisis? What is Ollie’s plan for breaking this news to his kids? And what is Lyla’s role in all of this? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×04, “Present Tense” recap

6 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Last time, Ollie and friends were trying to figure out more about the mysterious Monitor and what his intentions really are, while in the future, the assault on JJ and his Deathstroke gang went sideways as Zoe got killed in the ensuing battle. But none of that matters because, shockingly our Future Team Arrow of Mia, William, and Connor find themselves transported to now in the Arrow Bunker, literally in front of their dads, Ollie and Diggle, respectively! What is going on? Is this the Monitor’s doing? And what could happen as a result of this combo of present and future heroes? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×01, “Starling City” recap

16 Oct

Welcome back, Arrowheads, as we start the final season of Arrow! In case you need a reminder of what happened in the season finale, here’s the short version: Oliver has been recruited by The Monitor to save the entire multiverse from destruction, but it’s a mission that will end in Ollie’s demise (he did make a deal with The Monitor to sacrifice himself for his comrades, after all)! But what is this mission exactly? Let’s find out in a second, but first, let’s deal with the flashforwards to 2040 and the Queen siblings and get that out of the way, okay? Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×22, “You Have Saved This City” (season finale) recap

14 May

Welcome back for the season finale, Arrowheads! Team Arrow is facing trouble left and right thanks to Emiko’s attempt to destroy the legacy of the Queen family, and by extension, Oliver Queen and company. The police are now hunting them down, and that only gets worse because of a rampage Emiko commits in the police station dressed as the Green Arrow. Ollie wants to stop his mad half-sister, but wants to try to redeem her, not kill her. Speaking of difficult odds, our heroes in the future are about to launch an attack on Galaxy One before they release their Zeta supersoldiers, but find themselves all swarmed by the bad guys! Somehow we will solve all of this drama here, but let’s start with the flashforward… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×21, “Living Proof” recap

9 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Last time, Team Arrow put themselves in a rather sticky position when they helped their friend, Roy Harper, cover up an unintentional murder or two while he was under the influence of some Lazarus Pit related bloodlust. This was a massive mistake because Emiko took surveillance camera video and delivered it to the police, possibly destroying the progress they have made over the past year to clean up their image. Then, she decides to let Ollie know about her not preventing the Queen’s Gambit from going under, because she wanted their father to pay for abandoning her. And just to add some extra salt to the wound, she drops a whole building on the Team! Meantime in the future, our heroes still have to handle a group of super soldiers enhanced by Felicity’s Archer program. By the way, how did that end up in the hands of the bad guys, since she destroyed it in the present? Let’s get an answer to that first… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×20, “Confessions” recap

30 Apr

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Ollie let Emiko in on the fact that Dante, her mentor in the Ninth Circle, was the one who killed her mother, and she…took that well. “Well”, meaning she brutally kills Dante, but since she’s still running the Ninth Circle, I don’t think she’ll get many complaints from her minions there. But the Team still has to stop her, since she’s grabbed a deadly chemical for some future nefarious terrorist act. Also we should note something here since we don’t have a flash forwards this time: Roy seems to have a few “issues” from over the years, and it’s stuff Dinah knows about. Just something to keep in mind for later. Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×19, “Spartan” recap

25 Apr

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Team Arrow is dealing with the Ninth Circle, a deadly crime organization that has made Emiko Queen, Ollie’s other step-sister, part of its ranks. But Ollie may have found a way to break the group’s hold on Emiko, by revealing that they were responsible for her mother’s death. Will this turn Emiko over to the good guys? Meantime in the future, our baddies there have put out some new super soldier that has been putting our heroes on the ropes, but Mia (along with some help from an older Black Canary holder) has retrieved the tech filled helmet from that super soldier and maybe will provide some answers. So let’s jump into that first… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×18, “Lost Canary” recap

17 Apr

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’ve hit the final batch of episodes this season, and we got a lot of ground to cover. First off: Ollie is contending with his half sister Emiko being an agent of the evil Ninth Circle, and whether any of what she told him about her quest to find her mother’s killer is true or not. Second: things aren’t so good for Evil Laurel Lance as she gets accused of murdering a gang leader among other things (some of which she probably did do, but likely not murder), all because she ratted out Emiko to Ollie. And things aren’t as rosy in the future flash forwards either, as the bad guys are unleashing a new weapon against our future heroes. So let’s get to it, shall we? Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×17, “Inheritance” recap

26 Mar

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So Ollie has been connecting with his newly discovered step-sister, Emiko, whose past has been relatively mysterious, save her search for the man who killed her mother. But as the last few episodes have shown, Emiko is likely more screwy than the other siblings in the Queen clan. For one, we learn the super criminal Dante knows her very well; two, that she is responsible for killing Ricardo Diaz while he was in prison; and three, threatens Evil Laurel with exposing her real identity when the D.A. puts together what Emiko has done. So how did she become a agent of evil? And what will happen when Ollie and company find out the truth? Read on… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×16, “Star City 2040” recap

20 Mar

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Putting everything in the present on the back burner this episode, let’s discuss the flashforwards into 2040 so far: grown up William finds a message from Felicity, and through that gets a band of heroes to help find her, mainly Dinah, Roy Harper, and Rene’s grown up daughter Zoe. Eventually he gets the help of Diggle’s adopted kid, Connor Hawke, and…Mia Smoak? Yeah, well Felicity and Ollie had a kid ( or have a kid in the present, you know what I mean) and that kid grows up to be a bit angry. But how did that happen? Can they find Felicity? And what about that plan to destroy Star City? Is Rene, now Mayor of the now thriving Glades, on the side of the bad guys? More on that below… Continue reading
