Although only five episodes of the current season of Arrow have aired so far, I feel as if the series has reattained levels of excitement and intrigue that may prove to rival those of season 2, which is often hailed to be the best.
One of the elements contributing to the show’s current success and revitalization is that of the mysterious new villain in Star City, Prometheus. If you ask me, the TV version of him seems like Green Arrow’s equivalent of Zoom. Think about it: His costume reveals no identifying traits whatsoever, his voice is distorted, he accumulates body counts that not too many villains are able to boast, and he was a background player before coming to the forefront in the sixth episode.
Taking that into account, the ominously titled “So It Begins” will undoubtedly be a can’t miss episode for any fan of this series. Good money says it will chart the trajectory for the remainder of this season, given that Prometheus may have close personal ties to Oliver’s past.
For more on that front, be sure to study the official synopsis below:
When Prometheus ups his killing spree, Oliver (Stephen Amell) searches for connections between the victims. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) discover the victims have a mysterious link to Oliver’s past and this new secret could upend his new team. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) has a heart-to-heart with Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and Felicity considers telling Malone (guest star Tyler Ritter) the truth about her work. John Behring directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Brian Ford Sullivan.
Arrow airs on Wednesday nights on The CW.
