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.

Arrow
Season 5 Episode 3: “A Matter of Trust”
Directed by Gregory Smith
Written by Ben Sokolowski & Emilio Ortega Aldrich
Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, October 19th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) recruited Team 2.0, hence the name. He was completely brutal to Curtis, Wild Dog, and Evelyn Sharp (Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Madison McLaughlin), and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) tried to talk some sense into him (she also had a moment where she looked sick). But Diggle (David Ramsey) is back in the military, but got framed and thrown in jail. Mayor Queen made a deal with AmerTek to fund a free clinic for his broken city. One of the reps got attacked by something with magic tentacles. Turns out that “Ragman” is a good guy and AmerTek is in bed with Tobias Church (Chad Coleman). Secret bankruptcies and what not. Prometheus is the new “Big Bad,” who is bigger and badder than Tobias Church. Who could it be?

Starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, May 4th, 2016, 8:00pm

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.

Spoilers below.

The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, January 27th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) was having a really hard time with Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) near death-ness and surgeries. He won’t go see her. He’s just obsessed with finding Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough). He gets a lead from Lance (Paul Blackthorne) but finds himself competing with Anarky (Alexander Calvert), who is really fun to watch. He has a crush on Thea (Willa Holland). Understandable, because she set him on fire. Crazy kids. Anarky takes Darhk’s family hostage, but the Scoobies save them. Turns out that Darhk’s wife is crazier than he is. Felicity’s final diagnosis is “will never walk again.”

Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne, Caity Lotz
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, November 11th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, John Constantine guest starred! It made me indescribably happy to see Matt Ryan on the show, not only in present day Star City, but also in the flashbacks in Lian Yu, finally making that storyline a hell of a lot more interesting. After Oliver (Stephen Amell) finds out that Sara (Caity Lotz) is alive but soulless, and out to kill Thea (Willa Holland), he calls in a favor from a friend. That friend is John Constantine, whose life Oliver saved back on the island. Constantine takes Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Oliver into the other realm to fight for Sara’s soul, and they win. The Lance family has a tearful reunion. Holt (Echo Kellum) discovers that Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) is alive!

Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Brandon Routh, Paul Blackthorne

The review of Arrow 3.21 “Al Sah-Him” is coming right up. But first, a little (or a lot) recap of last week. Spoilers!

Thea (Willa Holland) is pretty much dead. Oliver (Stephen Amell) is beaten. He brings her to Nanda Parbat, to accept Ra’s al Ghul’s (Matt Nable) offer, in exchange for resurrecting her in the Lazarus Pit. Felicity, Diggle, and Malcolm (Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, and John Barrowman) go with him. Thea leaps out acting crazy – loving towards Malcolm, not recognizing Ollie, thinking her mom is alive. Felicity and Oliver finally do it! But then they have to leave him there. Felicity tries one last ditch effort to get him out of there, but it is an epic fail.
