Warning! Spoilers below Arrow 5.22 “Missing.”

Last week, Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) finally caught Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra), albeit too easily. The gang is in rare celebratory mode, but c’mon this is Arrow, that won’t last. The show opens with a hilarious back and forth between Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) & Mayor Queen:

Lance : “Your approval is back up to 70%”

Oliver: “Was it ever that high?”

Lance: “No”

Last week on Arrow, the team went shopping for a new Black Canary, but nobody was quite right according to Oliver (Stephen Amell). They found a promising young meta vigilante with the same power as Laurel. She was after the poeple that killed her partner. After ducking them for a while, Oliver showed her another way, and she was on the team. Adrian (Josh Segarra) was able to free Diggle (David Ramsey) while pissing off a shady general. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) went back to her “hack-tivist” ways. In the flashback, Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig) started training Oliver.

Last week’s Arrow was one of my favorites, as former WWE wrestler, Cody Rhodes, joined the hall of villains as Sampson – a “stardust” dealer, who battled against the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) in the handsomest fight in town. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) confessed her part in Haven Rock to Rory (Joe Dinicol). Diggle (David Ramsey) hallucinated Deadshot in the meanest audience trick, but wants to stay in jail for something he didn’t do, as penance for something he did – kill his brother. Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) was not having it, and went to get Oliver.

Spoilers below.

Last week on Arrow, nuclear weapons started readying for a strike, seemingly on their own. Rubicon had started “Genesis.” Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) realized she needed her father Noah (Tom Amandes), the Calculator, to hack into the unhackable system. Darhk (Neal McDonough) realized that too, and it was a race for him. Oliver, Diggle, and Felicity (Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, and Rickards) won, and the computer geniuses were able to stop all but one missile for a 24-hour period (after Felicity got fired and they stole stuff – in that order). Lance (Paul Blackthorne) will also probably get fired for being honest about the Black Canary. Lonnie Machim (Alexander Calvert) showed up at the ark for revenge against Darhk. He tried to get Thea (Willa Holland) to stop being a follower. She kicked his ass (to Alex’s detriment).

Spoilers below.

Last week on Arrow, the team was reeling from the loss of Laurel (Katie Cassidy) – Diggle (David Ramsey) blamed himself, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) was in severe denial, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) blamed herself too, and Oliver (Stephen Amell) was stoic, but sensible. He is not going to let Darhk (Neal Macdonough) off the hook though. A fake Black Canary was running around town, marring Laurel’s work, but they stopped her easily. Oliver then announced Laurel’s superhero identity at her funeral to protect her legacy.

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) tried to end the blood feud between Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Oliver’s “wife” Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law). Nyssa wanted Oliver to kill Merlyn in exchange for Thea’s (Willa Holland) cure. Oliver tried a diplomatic approach, but that did not work. Merlyn attacked, so Oliver cut off his hand and gave Nyssa the ring. Nyssa, proving her to be the better person, melted the ring to get rid of the bad legacy. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) realized her dad was the foe from the previous week, and wanted to trust him, but tested it first. He failed.

Warning! Do not proceed if you haven’t seen the fall finale!

The fall finale of Arrow last month ended in bullets and blood. It started out as a simple retaliation episode – Darhk (Neal McDonough) attacks a community event with children involved. Oliver (Stephen Amell) outs him to the media and thus the world. Darhk kidnaps Thea, Felicity, and Diggle (Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, and David Ramsey) with the intent to gas them to death. Oliver, Laurel (Katie Cassidy), and Merlyn (John Barrowman) save them and Merlyn seems to blow Darhk up. Things almost seem happy. Lance and Felicity’s mom (Paul Blackthorne and Charlotte Ross) are an item, and Oliver proposes. Then… their limo is attacked, Felicity is shot, and Darhk is alive. What?!?!?!?

Caught up?

Arrow 205 Constantine

Arrow
Season 4 Episode 5: “Haunted”

Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, November 4th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) showed Lance (Paul Blackthorne) that Sara (Caity Lotz) was alive – chained up, animilistic, wildling, but alive. He goes to Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) for advice who seems almost a friend, and advises him to put her down. He almost goes through with it in a heartwrenching moment, but Laurel is able to talk him down. At the end though, Sara escaped. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) is still not getting the hint that Ray is trying to communicate with her through her phone, even though Holt (Echo Kellum) tells her it’s coming from inside Palmer Tech. She is reluctant to listen to Ray’s last words but gives in. There was a little storyline involving corrupt cops, but I felt like that was background to the other stuff. The gang has a new lair, and after some hemming and hawing, Oliver (Stephen Amell) formerly announced his candidacy for mayor of Star City.

Spoilers below.
