In another stinker of an episode (in a season where they’re really piling up), Star City is broke dick and Team Arrow battles The Outsiders or The Others or whatever they call themselves for no real reason. Was this show good once?
Hey, lookit that, we have a halfway-decent Arrow this week. It would have been even better if they hadn’t brought back the whole flashback concept. And if they hadn’t had a contest to see how many times the cast could say “Cayden James.” And if they hadn’t killed off Vigilante. Oops – spoiler alert!
I have zero idea what happened in this week’s Arrow because I was completely distracted by Oliver’s disappearing/reappearing facial hair. I get that they’re not really trying anymore, but can’t the continuity expert even stay awake?
Ugh. In what has to be a candidate for the worst Arrow episode ever (and THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING), we learn that Cayden James is the worst Big Bad ever, Team Arrow is the worst team ever, and this season stinks like a rotting fish. To paraphrase Fat Tony’s boss on The Simpsons, “What have I done to deserve this flat, flavorless episode of Arrow?”
This week on Arrow, Oliver and Felicity are able to enjoy a few seconds of marital bliss before it all comes crashing down when they learn that someone on Team Arrow is a snitch. Fortunately, snitches get stitches. Or kicked off the team. Whichever.
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s a crisis on Earth-X. The title of this crossover actually made me wonder if we were on Earth-X, but apparently our crisis isn’t yet bad enough to necessitate the help of super heroes.
Was it just me? Was I the only one who found this week’s Arrow dull, confusing, and pointless? The interweb seems to have loved it. Maybe I was watching the wrong episode, but man, what I saw was a stone-cold clunker.
