If you haven’t started watching Arrow or The Flash yet make sure you get on it and start your Netflix binging because the latest seasons will be up on Netflix within the month since we’re down to the final three episodes of each show. Sooo where to start? Both seasons are giving the shows a great comeback. I love both shows but I’ve been invested in Arrow for way longer so lets zoom in on that.
This fifth season is definitely giving the show the revival it needed. Prometheus has been revealed and is Adrian Chase. He’s gotten into Oliver’s head and is trying to take his life away using any ammunition physically and mentally he can. That was one of the most powerful episodes of the season and surely made Team Arrow re-think there strategies.
I feel like “Underneath” was a perfect way to kick off the final three. Oliver and Felicity finally have to speak about their issues head on regarding his son Oliver, why Oliver hasn’t fully let her in and their fate as team and friends. In the beginning of the season especially with Suzanne in the picture I wanted Olicity to make a comeback but I’ve finally accepted that it’s probably not happening and I was okay with how the episode ended. It ended with Felicity telling Oliver to figure out what kind of person he really is. Especially since he’s been slightly scarred since Chase brainwashed him two episodes before. The Arrow team is also all back and helping Oliver get through everything. We’ve also gained knowledge and have learned more about the newbies who’ve stuck around like Mr. Wonderful or Curtis, Dinah is slowly revealing more about herself, and of course Wild Dog. Lila is also very involved and has Argus on Team Arrow’s side. This also makes an interesting dynamic for the team and of course their constant battle of what boundaries are okay to push.
We’re left with a tease for tonight’s episode where Chase is speaking to Oliver’s son, William. I can’t wait to see where the writers take us and the team with this next episode, “Honor thy Fathers.” Will a Robert Queen make an appearance? What will Chase do with WIlliam? WIll the Green Arrow and Prometheus throw down?
Let me know your thoughts and predictions!!!
