Arrow 423-02

Arrow
Season 4 Episode 23: “Schism”
Directed by John Behring
Written by Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim
Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, May 25th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, Felicity and her long lost dad (Emily Bett Rickards and guest Tom Amandes) fought to keep Rubicon offline, and got some help from Curtis (Echo Kellum), while upset Donna (Charlotte Ross) stood by. Merlyn (John Barrowman) drugged Thea (Willa Holland) into fighting Oliver (Stephen Amell), as he and Diggle (David Ramsey) tried to rescue her. She shook it off pretty quickly though. Anarky was running around the H.I.V.E. ark ready to get revenge on Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), and started by killing Ruvé Darhk (Janet Kidder). The heroes saved the little girl, and the geeks saved the world by shutting Darhk down.

Arrow
Season 4 Episode 22: “Lost In The Flood”
Directed by Glen Winter
Written by Oscar Balderrama & Brian Ford Sullivan

Starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, May 18th, 2016, 8:00pm

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).

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.

Last time on Arrow, the gang got wind of Damien Darhk’s (Neal McDonough) impending escape and go to stop him. Andy turned on them at the last minute, not surprising to Oliver (Stephen Amell), but devastatingly surprising to Diggle (David Ramsey). Darhk finally got his revenge for Lance’s (Paul Blackthorne) betrayal by stabbing Laurel (Katie Cassidy) with one of The Green Arrow’s arrows. She seemed to be doing fine in the hospital, and had a raw heart to heart with Ollie telling him she loved him, and telling him a secret. She passed unexpectedly.

Last week on Arrow, Felicity’s mom went expectedly overboard with wedding preparations. Merlyn (John Barrowman) is on Damian Darhk’s (Neal McDonough) team now, confirming that Lance (Paul Blackthorne) was the mole. Darhk sets a trap. His wife ambushes the Arrow gang who thought they were being so stealthy. Thea (Willa Holland) figures out Oliver (Stephen Amell) has a son. Curtis (Echo Kellum) designed an implant that would get Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) to walk again.

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.

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.”

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?
