ARROW Preview: Anarky in Star City


Oliver had settled nicely into domestic life over the ARROW hiatus, even learning that he had quite the talent for cooking. But back in Star City (now renamed), everything was going to hell. Damien Darhk’s “ghosts” were terrorizing the city and, one night, they took out most of the city’s leadership. Desperate for help, Laurel and Thea sought out Oliver and asked him to come back home and don the Arrow hood once again. Oliver was afraid to do so, not eager to delve back into the dark life he had lived for so many years, but Felicity really wanted to get back to helping people.

Back in the city, Oliver had to deal with a Diggle that still clearly held a grudge as well as a rash of bombs set to blow up the city’s train station. He managed to foil the bombing, but met Damien in the process and discovered the man’s mysticism abilities (which included some form of telekinesis). And at the end of the episode we learned that Quentin was working under duress for Damien. In the final moments we got the biggest shock as Oliver stood in front of a fresh grave six months down the line, visited by Barry. Who had died? We don’t know that big spoiler yet.

In next week’s ARROW, an old friend of the Queen family announces that she’ll be running for mayor. Considering city leaders are being murdered by Damien, Thea and Oliver are concerned for their friend. But when she announces her candidacy they vow to protect her. Elsewhere in the episode, Felicity gets to work at Palmer Tech and Thea starts to feel the effects of the Lazarus Pit.

Don’t miss an all new episode of ARROW on October 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

ARROW Season 4 Premiere Sneak Peek: Felicity’s New Job


Felicity is trying to hang on to her job in season 4 of ARROW, according to a new clip introduced by Emily Bett Rickards. Apparently after she and Oliver drove off into the sun, she was named CEO of Palmer Tech, although the Board of Directors don’t seem confident that she’s up to the task.

Meanwhile, she and Oliver are still going strong. In fact, he’s getting ready to propose just as Thea and Laurel interrupt their suburban life of domestic bliss to call Oliver back to Star City to help with Damien Darhk and his minions. But the couple do return home and are still together, enjoying a morning session of pillow talk. Still, we can’t help but wonder how long it will take for Damien to target Felicity if he becomes aware of Oliver’s true identity.

The season premiere of ARROW airs on October 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

ARROW Photos: A New Candidate for Mayor


Oliver is settling back in to life in Star City after the season premiere of ARROW and Jeri Ryan will be guest staring in a mid-October episode as an old Queen family friend, Jessica Danforth. She tells Thea and Oliver that she plans to run for mayor which concerns both of them since the last three (three!) mayors have all been murdered. But despite their protests, Jessica makes the announcement that she’s going to run, which leaves Speedy and the Green Arrow determined to protect her.

Meanwhile, Felicity will be facing some tough business decisions and seeks out one of her employees, Curtis Holt, for help.

ARROW Producer’s Preview: A New Team in Star City


Oliver and Felicity have started a new life in the suburbs when ARROW begins its fourth season. Back in Star City (now renamed in memory of Ray Palmer), the new Team Arrow is fighting the good fight. Diggle has donned a costume, Thea is trying to be called the Red Arrow instead of Speedy and Laurel’s skills have really developed.

But problems arise when these “ghosts” come to town and start terrorizing the citizens of Star City. Damien Darhk is in charge of them and makes his presence known to our heroes. And so Thea and Laurel head out to ‘burbs to bring Oliver back because they need the Arrow’s help. He’s torn about whether he should return, but it appears that Felicity is just eager to help their friends.

ARROW returns for its fourth season on October 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

CW Stars Tweet Their Congratulations To Stephen Amell On His SummerSlam Win


After months of feuding on social media with WWE Superstar Stardust aka Cody Rhodes, ARROW star Stephen Amell made his WWE debut last night at SummerSlam, joining up with Neville to take on his newest foe and his partner, King Barrett.

Although Amell took a beating for most of the match, he demonstrated some impressive moves, and he and Neville were able to pick up the win against Stardust and Barrett. While Amell celebrated with his partner backstage, several of his fellow CW stars tweeted up a congratulatory storm, starting with co-star John Barrowman.

John Barrowman: “.@amellywood that was Fucking Brilliant. Well done!! WINNER!!! Ice that shoulder:! JB.”

Brandon Routh: “He was great. I’m exhausted just watching @amellywood take a beating, then dish it out! Well fought!”

Robbie Amell: “Woooooo!!!! Yeah buddy! @amellywood.”

Even Colin Donnell, who departed the cast after the first season, was in attendance at the Barclays Center to cheer his pal on, saying: “. @amellywood f’ing killed it at #SummerSlam!!! #Arrow #WWE.

Amell himself took to Twitter posting this photo of his bruised back with the caption “Worth it.” Although the focus was on his match, Stephen shared some details backstage on the upcoming season of Arrow before the bout, adding that the world will be “bigger”, in part by “getting into mystical things”, as well as visiting stories “that fans of [the DC Comics series] Green Arrow: Year One are really going to appreciate.”

The new season of ARROW premieres Oct. 7 at 8PM on The CW.

Have The CW Anit-Heroes Gone Too Far?

klaus originals

This week has two season finales that are sure to be action packed. These two finales are both on The CW and both involve “anti-heroes.” Anti-heroes are those characters that seem to be in the “heroes” category but don’t actually follow any conventional hero characteristics. The two CW shows I’m talking here are ARROW and THE ORIGINALS. What these two show’s anti-heroes have in common is that they both have made some very bold and potentially unforgivable moves in the episodes leading up to the finales this week. So I ask have Klaus Mikaelson and Oliver Queen gone too far? [Read more...]
