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 5×14, “The Sin-Eater” recap

23 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  There’s not much to recap from last week’s “let’s talk about gun control” special episode, besides Thea’s back in town.  But we still got the Prometheus problem to worry about, and our Team thinks they found his in-hiding mom.  Then you got that whole thing with Ollie and Adrian hiding the details of Billy’s murder from the Anti Crime Unit, because its hard to explain why the Green Arrow accidentally killed a cop (but read ahead for that to actually happen).  And even with that, there’s trouble brewing with Ollie’s new reporter girlfriend, Susan, finally piecing together he’s the Green Arrow.  But before we get to all of that… 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 5×08, “Invasion!” recap

1 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  So let’s just put away all the drama of Prometheus and Vigilante and all that for this week, and let’s talk about what happened to most of Team Arrow in The Flash literally yesterday.  First off, Earth is being invaded by not so pleasant aliens known as the Dominators, and just about every hero related to The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.  Heck, we get a legitimate Supergirl to join the festivities!  As our team was just getting to the assembling part, Ollie, Thea, Diggle, Sara, and Ray are beamed away by the aliens to…well, where did they go? Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×07, “Vigilante” recap

17 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Team Arrow 2.0 has had its share of growing pains this season, but as bad as that has been, new villain Prometheus has really been keeping them off guard.  Ollie has been getting a bit more personal with reporter Susan Williams (who is totally investigating Ollie’s “stranded” years), Diggle is still a wanted man, and Quentin is blackout drinking and waking up with some of Prometheus’ throwing stars.  So what could make things worse in Star City and for Team Arrow 2.0? Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×06, “So It Begins” recap

10 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  Ollie’s been having a tough time with both his day job and night job as of late.  But with some big moves as mayor and capturing crime boss Tobias Church as the Green Arrow, it looks all gravy.  But there are some problems brewing, like reporter Susan Williams finding out Ollie was not stranded on an island for five years.  And there’s the threat of Prometheus, who murders Church while in police custody!  Who is this guy who isn’t but could be Malcolm Merlyn?   Continue reading
