Previously on Arrow, Black Siren had killed Vigilante in front of Black Canary. The group had also discovered what evidence someone had given Cayden James to make him believe that the Green Arrow had killed his son. Would Oliver be able to convince Cayden that someone else had killed his son? Will it even do any good? How is Dinah going to handle the death of Vincent?
We last left Team Arrow with them failing find Cayden James’ bomb, and reluctantly having to pay his daily ransom. Team Outsider was coming around to the knowledge that they could trust Vigilante. Will Team Arrow also be able to trust Vigilante? Will they be any closer to finding Cayden’s bomb, or will they have to keep paying until they run out of money, and then get blown up anyways? Will Quintin Lance keep up his foolish hope that Black Siren can be redeemed?
Last we saw of Team Arrow, they were still separated. Oliver tried to bring everyone back together, realizing that he couldn’t take on a flock of villains on his own. However, Curtis, Dinah, and Rene were having none of it. I mean, they already had their own headquarters, so why bother rejoining. What does Cayden James have in store for this week? With the team remaining separated, will that hinder the fight against James?
Arrow returned from it’s mid-season break like the other shows, establishing the new status quo. We last left Team Arrow having been separated in twine. Once again, Oliver let distrust and hypocrsy get the better of him. Black Siren, Richard Dragon, Anatoly Knyazev, Vigilante, and Boots are being led by Cayden James in his master plan. For simplicity, any time all or most of them are together, they shall be referred to as the Arrow Rogues. I really don’t feel like typing all of their names out. But anyways, part of their master plan was to split up Team Arrow, with Anatoly knowing how Oliver would react to a hint of distrust.
This week, with the mid-season finales, we’re discussing the state of the CW DC shows (Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow) and The Walking Dead. Then, since The Last Jedi comes out this week, we figured that we should discuss something related to Star Wars, so we’re discussing video games related to Star Wars.
Starting this Fall, Supergirl will be on Mondays on the CW, rather than CBS. This makes sense. The CW already has 3 DC Comics shows in Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. It never really made sense that the same group was making Supergirl, but CBS was airing it. Now, I suppose the only question is how do they incorporate it with the other shows. In The Flash/Supergirl crossover, it was established that Supergirl takes place on a different Earth. They’ve already promised a 4 part crossover between all of the shows. Maybe they do some type of crisis event, and Supergirl gets stranded on “Earth-1.” (Earth-1 according to The Flash.)
But whatever they do, I suppose I should get caught up on the show. Watched the first episode and liked it, but I missed some episodes.
This highlight reel that CW put out may contain some mild spoilers for Arrow, Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. I say mild, because I’m only about halfway through the seasons, and only appearances were spoiled. No story stuff that I could understand.
