Arrow: Layers and Serum

Keep it coming, guys and gals!

This week, Arrow continued its exploration of fan-favorite character Slade Wilson AKA Deathstroke, while thinning out the herd of other storylines. Tonight delved deeper into Slade and really started to peel back some layers to paint a picture of who he is just before giving him a proper sendoff (for now at least).

Arrow: A Standalone Issue of Sorts?

If you read comics, you’re probably familiar with a “filler issue.”

For those who might not be, filler issues often serve as a break between story arcs. Sometimes they occur mid-storyline (which is weird), or they serve to “introduce” a new creative team. Either way, the stories usually have nothing to do with what’s currently going on—it’s usually just a simple/traditional or fun plot that lives outside of a major arc.

Tonight’s Arrow had a little bit of filler issue vibe to it for me.

Chapter-by-Chapter: Green Arrow Vol. 2

Hey, hey! Matt Ross, here. If you don’t know me, I cover Arrow for the #DCTV Couch Club. A few months ago, I wrote a readthrough that looked at GREEN ARROW VOL. 1, so when I heard Vol. 2 was out, I was excited to jump into the new trade!

After opening, I did what I think most of us do and immediately flipped through the book as a way to get a feel for what I was about to read.

Arrow: No Shoes. No Shirt. No Kill.

Diggle dropped a line in tonight’s episode that I feel I’d be doing a disservice if I didn’t start the column out with it. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen or heard a hero in a comic, TV show or movie say this and it’s too good to not repeat. Here it goes:

“We don’t hire criminals and pay them with diabetes drugs!”

Haha. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s move on…

Tonight’s episode had a lot of moving parts—probably the biggest being Anatoly stepping out of the flashbacks and into the present storyline to take care of Ollie’s dirty work.

Who's In the Box?: Unearthing Arrow's Grave

Four seasons in and Arrow still never fails to surprise, but this year it tipped its hand ever-so-slightly when the season premiere flashed forward to a grieving Oliver standing over an unseen grave. The stakes are higher than ever this season, and it’s clear that not every member of Team Arrow is going to survive. But who’s the unlucky victim?

The #DCTV Secrets of ARROW Ep 4.7: "Brotherhood"

There's magic in the air (quite literally) in Star City this season—and there are more secrets than just the source of that power to be found. That’s why we’re here to tease you with all the #DCTV Secrets hiding in each episode. If you really want to know some of the answers to these questions, check out the spoiler section... and get to the point.

Arrow's Back in Action in First Season 4 Trailer

When last we saw Stephen Amell’s masked protector, he was headed off to beachside bliss alongside Felicity Smoak. But if you thought it would be sunshine and happiness for the happy couple from here on out, think again. Things are looking awfully dark (or should we say “Darhk”) for Oliver Queen and his team in the just released Arrow Season 4 trailer. Looks like that ride off into the sunset will have to wait!
