Arrow
Season 4 Episode 4: “Beyond Redemption”
Directed by Lexi Alexander
Written by Beth Schwartz, Ben Sokolowski
Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg

The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, October 28th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, Thea and Laurel (Willa Holland and Katie Cassidy) go to Nanda Parbat to get Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), the new Ra’s al Ghul, to restore Sara (Caity Lotz) via the Lazarus Pit. Thea also wants to cure the beast inside her. At first Merlyn says no to the pit, and lies to Thea about helping her. Once he tricks her into killing to slake the bloodlust, she is so furious, he agrees to resurrect Sara. Because of all this, Nyssa (Katrina Law) destroys The Lazarus Pit. That was wise. Sara comes out of the Pit, a wild animal, bent on destroying Thea (her killer). That’s a tidy reason why she will need to leave to join Legends of Tomorrow. Diggle and Oliver (David Ramsey and Stephen Amell) squash their issues, Diggle finally admitting his secret 2-year investigation. Felicity was so pro team, I thought surely someone was going to be in critical condition by the end of the episode. Thank goodness, no one was. A killer-by-playing-card meta ran around town, and was the means by which newcomer Holt (Echo Kellum) finds out about her other job (but not about Oliver’s identity… yet).

Spoilers below.

TV Review: Arrow 4.1 “Green Arrow”

Arrow
Season 4 Episode 1: “Green Arrow”
Directed by Thor Freudenthal
Written by Marc Guggenheim, Wendy Mericle, Greg Berlanti, Beth Schwartz
Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015, 8:00pm

Superhero season is officially back! Yesterday kicked off with The Flash, and tonight it’s time for its darker cousin, Arrow.

When we last saw Oliver Queen aka Arrow (Stephen Amell), he was happily driving down a sunny road, away from the chaos and towards his new happy life with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). Matt Nable‘s Ra’s al Ghul was defeated, and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) took his place. Thea (Willa Holland) embraced her inner superhero in her red leather outfit, after her boyfriend Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) left town. It looks like Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) exploded (but we know better), and Diggle (David Ramsey) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) are still in town fighting crime, most likely against her anti-vigilante father Lance’s wishes (Paul Blackthorne).

We all caught up? Don’t read on unless you’ve watched the episode, for spoilers lie ahead.

The review of Arrow 3.21 “Al Sah-Him” is coming right up. But first, a little (or a lot) recap of last week. Spoilers!

Thea (Willa Holland) is pretty much dead. Oliver (Stephen Amell) is beaten. He brings her to Nanda Parbat, to accept Ra’s al Ghul’s (Matt Nable) offer, in exchange for resurrecting her in the Lazarus Pit. Felicity, Diggle, and Malcolm (Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, and John Barrowman) go with him. Thea leaps out acting crazy – loving towards Malcolm, not recognizing Ollie, thinking her mom is alive. Felicity and Oliver finally do it! But then they have to leave him there. Felicity tries one last ditch effort to get him out of there, but it is an epic fail.

I really hope everyone is caught up on Arrow. You had a month, people! If not….spoiler alert!

We last left our favorite vigilante trapped in Nanda Parbat with John Diggle (David Ramsey) in a failed rescue attempt of Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman). Thea (Willa Holland), so distraught that Malclom drugged her and set her up to kill the original Canary, Sarah Lance (Caity Lotz), she sold him to Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) for her and Oliver’s guaranteed safety. Oliver went to rescue him against everyone’s advice in order to save Thea from future torment and guilt. I have to side with Oliver on this one. If Merlyn dies, eventually Thea’s anger will fade and she will be full of regrets.
