Oliver Struggles to Keep His Promise to Deathstroke

In concept alone, this episode of Arrow has the potential to be one of the best installments ever. As the title ("Deathstroke Returns") makes clear, Slade Wilson makes his proper return to the series for his own story, as Oliver accompanies him to go an international mission to save Slade's son. Yet Arrow has more treats in store than more of Slade's wonderful gravely whisper. The other half of the episode takes place in Star City. In other words, the show focuses on one of the most interesting (new) ... more

Deathstroke Returns

While he didn't suit up in the latest chapter of Arrow, Oliver did get some super-action as he joined Slade Wilson for a big mission. But the mission goes a little unexpected in Arrow Season 6 Episode 5 because this is comic book television after all. Let's start with the single thing that didn't work in "Deathstroke Returns" which was the reveal of the Vigilante. Despite the fact that I didn't have any solid candidates for who it could have been...I was expecting the reveal to b... more



'Arrow' Has Failed to Explain Why Diggle Is So Eager to Be the Green Arrow Again

Oliver being the Green Arrow again was only supposed to be temporary in Arrow season 6, while Diggle was sidelined because of his injury. But now that he's able to go into the field, John wants the hood back -- though we have yet to truly see why.

'Arrow' Can't Redeem Black Siren, So Stop Teasing the Possibility

Arrow has been exploring whether or not Black Siren can be redeemed, but so far, we're not seeing much that suggests she can be. She's giving being (Earth-1) Laurel Lance "a try," but pretending to be someone doesn't make her that person, and her actions don't suggest that she's changed from the person who killed when she didn't need to in the beginning of the season. This doesn't mean that can't change, but if redemption is in the cards for Black Siren, th... more

Oliver Should Retire from Vigilante Life on 'Arrow'

Arrow season 6 began with a shocker when Oliver gave up the mantle of Green Arrow and bequeathed it John Diggle. Since then, Oliver has returned to the position of Green Arrow, first to fight Cayden James and now to take on Ricardo Diaz. Yet Diggle still waits in the wings and wants to be reinstated as the Green Arrow -- a desire he made well known, repeatedly, in the episode "Doppleganger." While Oliver currently seems (very) reluctant to give up the job, it would be best for more
