Arrow - Unchained

“Unchained” introduces a Batman villain to DC’s TV universe in the Calculator (Tom Amandes). A master of technology, and the leading comic book nemesis for Oracle in Gail Simone’s Birds of Prey series, the super-hacker takes Star City by siege using high-tech mind-control to retrieve different pieces of tech around the city he hopes to fashion into a doomsday-style weapon. One of the items he sets his sights on is Palmer Technology’s new uber-battery. And of of his mind-controlled soldiers turns out to be Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).

Following the cross-over with The Flash, Arrow closes the first-half of its Fourth Season by turning its attention back on Oliver Queen‘s (Stephen Amell) mayoral campaign and his battle with Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough). His choice to out Darhk as the leader of the Ghosts to the Star City press has consequences not for Oliver but for his loved ones as Darhk’s men kidnap both Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Thea (Willa Holland). It will be all-hands on deck to get them back, including having Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) clad in Green Arrow’s costume while Oliver attempts to trade himself for his loved ones.
