Arrow - Unthinkable

Arrow‘s Second Season, along with the long-brewing battle between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), comes to an end with Deathstoke’s super-strong army tearing apart Starling City and Amanda Waller‘s (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) A.R.G.U.S. drones ready to turn the city into sinkhole rather than allow any one of Deathstroke’s men to escape. Thankfully there is some good news. Star Labs’ cure works on restoring Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) to normal, and Ollie and company receive some much needed back-up by Diggle‘s (David Ramsey) friend Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) as well as Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and the League of Assassins brought back to Starling by Sara (Caity Lotz) promise to return to the League should they survive the night.

“I have failed this city.”

Arrow - Streets of Fire

Things are looking bleak for the heroes of Starling City. Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) are buried alive, the cure from Star Labs falls into Slade Wilson‘s (Manu Bennett) hands, Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) is alive and deadlier than ever, the city is on fire, Deathstroke’s super-powered insane army is killing indiscriminately, and Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro), naively believing he can still salvage the situation, refuses to call in for help leaving the city’s police force the only thing standing between Starling City and utter destruction.

Arrow - Seeing Red

With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. riding high with the HYDRA fallout from the Captain America: The Winter Soldier I thought this might be the week that Marvel’s show might out-perform its rival DC’s weekly super-hero action-drama. Nope. Arrow‘s strong Second Season continues with an episode with lasting fallout not only for the season’s remaining three episodes but well beyond. This, as they say, is one of those episodes that changes everything.

Arrow - The Man Under the Hood

With Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) missing, Thea (Willa Holland) still pissed at him for hiding her parentage, his family facing potential financial ruin, Officer Lance (Paul Blackthorne) in prison, and Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) in complete control of Queen ConsolidatedOliver (Stephen Amell) and his team turn their attention to an enemy they can fight: Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). Bombing his former company’s applied sciences wing, Oliver, Sara (Caity Lotz), Diggle (David Ramsey), and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) prevent Slade from getting his hands on the equipment he needs to synthesize the super-soldier serum and create his new army.

Arrow - Deathstroke

Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) finally makes his move beginning with Thea (Willa Holland) abduction and using the traumatic series of events to steal Queen Consolidated away from Oliver (Stephen Amell), with the help of Isabel Rochev‘s (Summer Glau), and begin to drive wedges between Green Arrow and those closest to him by exposing one of Ollie’s secrets to his sister and another to Laurel (Katie Cassidy). “Deathstroke” works on several levels, first showing how surgical the assassins strikes can be without ever picking a weapon and also in playing on a running theme of the series that despite his physical skills honed on the island Oliver isn’t a brilliant strategist and is often his own worst enemy.

With Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) frantically searching for any leads to find Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), even going so far as threaten Alexi Leonov (Eugene Lipinski) and Bratva for information to put Deathstroke in the ground before one-eyed super-assassin makes good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s life, Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson) taps her ex-husband, and current on-again/off-again love interest, Diggle (David Ramsey) to lead Amanda Waller‘s (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) Suicide Squad and retrieve a chemical weapon from a smuggler and terrorist (Lee Majdoub) in Markovia whose life Diggle saved six years ago.
