Arrow picks up after Roy’s choice to turn himself in and take the fall for Oliver, while a metahuman is in town to cause all sorts of trouble.
Ray comes to the forefront as Oliver needs his help taking down Jake Simmons, who is a rather nasty piece of work. There’s a few nice scenes we get there. Palmer’s been relegated to a love triangle I think it’s evident I couldn’t be less of a fan of, but finally he’s been getting some more interaction with other characters. It’s a shame there hasn’t been more of it, really.
Elsewhere, we have Oliver’s identity crisis actually seemingly come back. It’s been a theme of the season and it’s never felt properly dealt with for me. Until now. Obviously. Ra’s has taken Oliver Queen and the Arrow from him and, let’s just say things may get a little worse.
The flashbacks appear to be actually getting somewhere now. Real emphasis on the ‘actually’ is needed. After a whole season of the story, the plan or whatever you want to call it where it didn’t really seem all that obvious – I mean let’s remember, we had one flashback with Oliver doing his laundry – but it does seem there may be an interesting pay-off at long last.
Some teaser quotes:
1. “Proud of yourself? Letting a kid take the fall?”
2. “So it’s a team-up? High five!”
3. “I honestly can’t think of an answer to that question that doesn’t get me in trouble.”
4. “I need to learn to let people help me.”
5. “Do you know who I am, child?”
