ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 22, “Darkness on the Edge of Town” / Ep. 23, “Sacrifice”

30 Sep

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! We are finally at the end of season one, and we got lots to deal with. Ollie is patching things with Diggle while things are still icy with Tommy over Laurel (remember when that was still a thing?). Poor Walter has been recovered from captivity, Thea is still helping her boyfriend Roy track down the mysterious Hood, and oh yeah, there’s still Malcolm Merlyn’s plan to destroy part of Starling City, because, Malcolm Merlyn’s a psycho. So without further ado, let’s get to the end of this thing… Continue reading

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 20, “Home Invasion” / Ep. 21, “The Undertaking”

17 Sep

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads! When last we left everyone, Ollie lost his business partner, best friend Tommy, to him working with his dad and Ollie’s unknown nemesis, Malcolm Merlyn! And now Ollie has agreed to help Diggle take out his arch nemesis, Deadshot, which can only work out great as long as there’s no external conflict that comes between it, and that doesn’t happen on Arrow, right? And of course, our Team Arrow is still trying to figure out the whole Undertaking scheme, but know now it’s going to happen in Star City. So, let’s just jump in… Continue reading

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 6×23, “Life Sentence” (season finale) recap

19 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So we’re here at the end of season six, and things are getting tough for Team Arrow. Not only have they lost both their HQs, Ricardo Diaz has solidified his hold on Star City and whatever’s left of the Quadrant. So of course Ollie has to make a Hail Mary pass by asking for help from FBI agent Samanda Watson. All she wants to give her help is to know Ollie is the Green Arrow. He confirms that, but she asks for something else. That “something else” is what we’re about to learn about. Continue reading

ARROW Season 6×21, “Docket No. 11-19-41-73” recap

5 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Oliver Queen this season started on a big high of having a family, being Mayor of Star City, and occasionally being the Green Arrow. But now, things are just in the pits with almost all of his teammates gone on their own, him being impeached from office, and in the crosshairs of an investigation to prove he is the vigilante we all know he is. And last we left, we learned thanks to Ricardo Diaz being plugged in throughout the city, he’s going to have Ollie’s trial…about now-ish. How is he gonna get out of this mess with all those cards stacked against him? Continue reading

ARROW Season 6×20, “Shifting Allegiances” recap

29 Apr

Welcome back, Arrowheads! While Ricardo Diaz is consolidating power for himself in Star City and aligning himself with the criminal cadre known as The Quadrant, Team Arrow is splintered all over the place. Diggle is now working at ARGUS, the noobs are waiting for Rene to return to duty, and Oliver is on his own, waging a one man war against crime once again! Good thing for Ollie that he’s currently out of a job as a mayor right now, because he’s got a lot of work to do in taking down Diaz. Continue reading
