Synopsis: Now that Oliver has his new team, they are ready to hit the streets but Oliver doesn’t feel they are ready. Headstrong Wild Dog defies the Green Arrow’s orders and sets out on his own after a new drug dealer, Derek Sampson, who is terrorising Star City.
Review: A lot happening in this episode. But its prime mission was to give Arrow’s new team their first outing and in that regard it succeeded.
While Oliver is out cleaning up the streets many of his mayoral duties are being handled by his sister and in this episode she makes somewhat of a hash of things when she makes the mistake of trusting a tabloid journalist. However Ollie is able to bail his sister out with a big speech about Trust, which was not only pointed at his political administration, but was also pointed at his team.
We had more flashbacks this week, which were as boring and tedious as they were last week. Not sure just yet how they tie into the new storyline for this season. But they better damn well hurry up and get to the point. Basically it was more about Oliver’s initiation into the Bratva.
Following on from his capture last week. Diggle is now serving time and he winds up sharing a cell with the Arrow universe’s version of Deadshot, which was really cool and somewhat of a surprise given that we had been led to believe that they wouldn’t be able to use him again due to the recent Suicide Squad movie.
The episode closes out with Diggle’s wife asking Ollie to break Diggle out of Jail. So no prizes for guessing what next weeks episode will be about.
Personally I’ll be glad when Diggle is back on Ollies team. He’s been very much missed.
Overall. This one dragged a little and was a little to full of expositional nonsense for my liking. Hopefully they pick things up soon.
