If you tuned in for last night’s episode of Arrow, “The Devil’s Greatest Trick,” then you’re well aware of how it boasted all the excitement and intensity of a season finale. Effectively bringing Cayden James’ arc to an unexpected close, we learned his tragic backstory before it was revealed that Ricardo Diaz had, in fact, arranged his son’s murder. Not only that, but “The Dragon” murdered James, seemingly emerging as this season’s true big bad!
Now, for some good news and some bad news.
I guess we should start with the bad news because the show is going on hiatus for a few weeks, but the good news is that we have a general idea of what to expect upon the series’ return. You see, the latest promo and synopsis for “Collision Course” let us know that before Team Arrow can reunite as one and focus their attention on the villains plaguing Star City, they’re going to have to sort out their own business.
Quite frankly, we were reasonably certain that last night would mark the reunion, but there were too many intangibles that led to this powder keg exploding. To say that tensions have been building all season is putting it mildly, and Oliver Queen’s stubborn nature and Dinah Drake’s temper are going to have to be put in check if we’re to make progress.
But who knows? Maybe someone like, say, Roy Harper will return in time to help smooth things over.
For more, be sure to check out the aforementioned synopsis:
OTA VS. NTA — Oliver (Stephen Amell), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) disagree with Dinah (Juliana Harkavy), Curtis (Echo Kellum) and Rene (Rick Gonzalez) on how to handle Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). The two teams face off and a fight ensues. Ken Shane directed the episode written by Oscar Balderrama & Rebecca Bellotto (#614).
Arrow returns with new episodes on Thursday, March 1st on The CW.
