The last entry in our episodic journey into Arrow was two weeks ago. As with Flash this week I withheld my review last week in order to do a thematic side by side comparison with this week’s episode. All season long, dear readers, you have helped me explore the tropes, themes, devices and narrative of not only Arrow but Supergirl and Flash as well. All season we have focused on these things rather than the content or the wish list of every fan of the show. I have intentionally avoided the whole “too much Olicity” cries of the internet because I felt that all season it was important to look underneath the whimsy of details, (after all, what is preference but whim?) and take what the creatives gave us. Besides, how can you critique for content until all the content is given? Read more...

Barreling into the darkness at a rapid pace is never wholly comfortable, even if you are just a witness to it. With each installment of season 4 the creative team at Arrow seems to be doubling down on Ollie’s commitment to the light and with each installment the narrative demands that life kick mud all over the team – what is left of it.  We have explored in detail the thematic balancing act the show has maintained between the scripted and intentional narrative and the implications that serve as undertones for the thematic heart of the show.

This week, the third season of the American live-action superhero television series Arrow had come to an end, but the series is still far from over. But before I discuss the final two episodes of this season ("This is Your Sword" and "My Name is Oliver Queen"), I thought I present a little recap of what happened in the last two ("The Fallen" and "Al Sa-Him") in case some of you did not get the chance to see them. It went like this: After Ra's Al Ghul assassinated Thea Queen, her half brother Oliver agreed to accept the killer's offer to make him the next head of the League of Assassins so that Thea could be resurrected, except the rest of Team Arrow was unhappy with Oliver's decision.

A few weeks ago, we have witnessed on Arrow, a tragic event where Oliver Queen's sidekick Roy Harper ended up being sent to jail after lying to the police about him being the Arrow in an effort to spare Oliver from suffering and take opportunity to recover from his unintended act of murder back in the time of the Deathstroke war. Fortunately, Roy's death was faked so that he could be out of jail, only for him to leave his friends at Team Arrow. Then Ra's Al Ghul made his next move to get Oliver to give in to his demand for him to take over as head of the League of Assassins: assassinate his half-sister Thea Queen. Anyway, it has been a couple of weeks since ENR presented to you anything regarding what happened since Roy Harper's departure episode. As a first, I present to you, an Arrow episode double-bill feature as we are nearing the end of season, which makes sense as the episodes shared together a premise. This time, we are looking at "The Fallen" and "Al Sa-Him". Read more...

Before I talk about this week's episode of Arrow, here is a recap on last time's. John Diggle married Lyla a second, only for their attempt to start their honeymoon to suffer interruption as they got drafted back into the Suicide Squad for an assignment to rescue United States Senator Clay from kidnapping circumstances. Once the team arrived at the scene of the crime, they discovered that Clay was a crook who faked his own kidnapping to help his presidential campaign while endangering the real hostages. Fortunately, the Suicide Squad managed to save the hostages, only for team member Floyd Lawton/Deadshot to die in the explosion of he building where the crime took place. Meanwhile, Ra's Al Ghul continued on with his attempt to tempt Oliver Queen into accepting his offer to make him the next head of the League of Assassins by recruiting Arrow impersonators to kill innocent people, leading Captain Quentin Lance of the Starling City Police Department to launch a man hunt for the archer super-hero himself with Ray Palmer/The Atom offering to do his part in capturing him. Good news: Oliver proved his innocence to Ray by refusing to kill him after Ray learned of his double life. Read more...

In case you missed last time's episode of Arrow, here is a recap for you. Oliver Queen/Arrow and John Diggle managed to bring Malcolm Merlyn back to Starling City from Nanda Parbat alive after Oliver refused Ra's Al Ghul's offer to name him the next head of the League of Assassins. Unfortunately, Oliver started to wonder if his refusing to accept the offer was a bad decision when the League of Assassins leader's prediction of  the Arrow's tragic fate started to come true, especially with the part where Captain Quentin Lance of the Starling City Police Department ended up cutting ties with the Archer super-hero himself out of bitterness over his daughter Laurel's and the Arrow's decision to hide the truth about Laurel's sister Sara Lance's death from him.
