Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Wednesday’s episode of Arrow.
Team Arrow has lost yet another member.
After the death of Caity Lotz’s Canary earlier this season, Arrow lost Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) during Wednesday’s episode—though fortunately not via the Grim Reaper.
If there’s two things we know about Oliver Queen, it’s that he needs to be in control of everything and hates having to depend on people. This season, Arrow has been concerned with exploring what exactly happens when Oliver encounters an existential threat (such as Ra’s al Ghul) that forces him to cede control and turn to others for help. To make matters worse for him, his teammates, who used to blindly follow his orders, are becoming more assertive and independent.
Surprise: Roy Harper is the Arrow. Raise your hand if you believe him. Crickets?
Arrow fans won’t be the only one questioning Roy’s (Colton Haynes) sudden declaration that he’s Starling City’s hooded savior. Let’s not forget, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) already knows that Roy is Arsenal, so despite Roy’s bid to save Oliver (Stephen Amell), the dogged police captain will still be setting his sights on taking Ollie down.
Oliver, meanwhile, will try to protect his young protégé as the League of Assassins puts increasing pressure on the Emerald Archer to become the new Ra’s al Ghul—which, based on the recent promos, will soon come to fruition. Will Roy come out of this alive? And will Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) bid a special goodbye to the soon-to-be Heir to the Demon? EW caught up with executive producer Marc Guggenheim to get the scoop.
Tyler Durden likely wouldn’t be a fan of the first rule of Superhero Fight Club—there are no rules of Superhero Fight Club.
The CW released a video bringing the biggest hero and villains of shared-universe shows Arrow and The Flash together to go all-in on cage match-style brawls. Ignoring the logistics of having Central City and Starling City’s saviors and baddies agree to meeting in this type of venue, it’s a fun glimpse at the showdowns that have happened and those yet to come.
Finally, Arrow fans understand why everyone’s been talking about the final episodes of season 3. Thanks to a new promo that Stephen Amell posted on Facebook, we get a glimpse at what’s to come when the show returns later this month.
You have no idea how powerful the truth can be.
This sentence is repeated twice in tonight’s episode and is ironic given how often Arrow’s characters lie not only to the people closest to them, but also to themselves. Nonetheless, “Public Enemies” tackles it head on as we watch Arrow explore how traumatizing it can be when the truth about your loved ones’ survival is withheld from you. This is most notable in the main story line, which finds Quentin ordering a manhunt on all of Team Arrow.
Last night’s The Flash included some major twists, setting the stage for an epic end to the show’s inaugural season. And The CW is offering a glimpse at just how crazy that ending will be.
The CW’s potential The Flash and Arrow spin-off has a new star: Ciara Renée, who’s set to play Hawkgirl.
Renée’s been busy on Broadway, appearing in both Big Fish and Pippin in the past year. She’s appeared on television before, but playing Hawkgirl would be her first starring role.
As Deadshot so appropriately says during “Suicidal Tendencies”: “The Suicide Squad rides again.”
Well… a significantly pared down Squad, but a Squad none the less.
The team has lost a couple of its members since its eponymous episode in season 2, leaving Diggle and Lyla to team up with Deadshot and the newest member of the Squad, the lovesick Cupid on a new mission.
While Diggle (David Ramsey) is planning to tie the knot, Oliver (Stephen Amell) sets his sights on confronting Starling’s new hero: Ray Palmer, aka The Atom (Brandon Routh).
“We’re not super happy about it only because the vigilantism that’s going on in Starling City, they aren’t well-trained,” Ramsey tells EW. “It’s more that issue than it is anything else. The intentions are good, but these people aren’t trained and they have their reservations about that.”
