Arrow: The End is Nigh

You might need to bear with me a bit on this one, folks.

A long time ago—my first blog, actually—I wrote about how I’m a newcomer to Arrow. As such, some of the references in episodes require me to do some (usually a lot) of research to connect the dots from other seasons.

After tonight, I found myself doing quite a bit of digging to understand who Malcolm Merlyn is and how he connects within the Arrowverse.

But first…

Arrow: Not Done Yet

High drama in Star City tonight.

Thea returns. Rene still can’t decide if he wants to be a dad. Ollie’s dad is an accidental killer. The flashbacks return…

I was really excited to see Cody Rhodes’ character, Derek Sampson, return.  I’m a little bummed he wasn’t really used as much as I thought he would be, but that’s how the cookie crumbles, I guess.

 

Overall, tonight had a lot of moving parts in it. 

Arrow: Ollie's Law

It’s been phrased differently over time, but Murphy’s Law basically breaks down to this: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

It’s safe to say that this pretty much sums up tonight’s episode.

But I’d like to step back for a brief second. I saw something in the comments section of last week’s column that I’ve noticed for a while now and it looks like others see it, too.

Curtis aka Mr. Terrific—err, Mr. Comedian?

Arrow: Who Is Cayden James?

Annnnnd......we’re back!

After a little hiatus, Arrow has returned. I have to admit, though, this episode left me feeling a little like Homer after he joins the Movementarians and they show him the brainwashing video.

Homer: “Wait, I’m confused about the movie. So, the cops knew that internal affairs was setting them up?”

Movementarian: “What are you talking about? There’s nothing like that in there.”

Maybe the gap between episodes kind of threw me, but I found myself a bit confused at points tonight.

Arrow: No White Hat

There was a TV show in the late 1950’s and early 60’s called The Rifleman. It was a Western that revolved around a rancher, Lucas McCain (Chuck Connors), raising his son Mark in the New Mexico territory of 1870’s.

I watch the reruns all the time.

Why?

Arrow: Don't Call it a Rebuild

Wow…

Oftentimes in sports, when an organization is struggling and has a string of bad years, they’ll do what’s called a rebuild—trading guys away in order to get pieces back that they feel can develop and complement some existing players into a winning product years down the line.  It’s often a touchy subject, as most organizations never want to admit they’re in rebuild mode and the fans don’t want to have to “suffer” through the growing pains of young players and a team that can be a mess for the next few seasons.
