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.
Well, aside from the absurd notion that the bad guy in this episode was going to take down the Internet – yes, you read that right – we were spared an appearance from Oliver’s stupid son, so I’d say best episode so far this season.
So the previews for Season 6 of Arrow have been using the tagline “Everything has changed.” Well, yeah. Team Arrow was blown the fuck up at the end of Season 5. Of course everything has changed. But if this season is 23 episodes of Oliver sitting around and talking to his dopey son, tell me now, because I quit.
