If anything, the current season of Arrow is making for some strange bedfellows. With Oliver Queen now being behind bars, the rest of Star City’s costumed club have moved on with their lives in various ways, though not all of them are adjusting to civilian life as well.
Obviously, the person taking Ollie’s incarceration hardest is that of his wife, Felicity Smoak, who’s been behaving in atypical fashion of late. I guess when you feel as though you have nothing left to lose you’re not going to be the same man or woman you were before.
Based on the gallery of images promoting next week’s episode, “The Demon,” Felicity will manage to put aside any hard feelings when she, Dinah Drake and Earth-2’s Laurel Lance work in unison to free Oliver from Slabside. Already, the women more commonly known as Black Canary and Black Siren have managed to arrive on the same page when the greater good is at stake, so let’s hope they come up with something solid.
Also of note in the above slideshow are even more photos showing the Emerald Archer’s ongoing prison adventures. From where I’m sitting, there’s nothing too spoiler-ish, though odds are he’ll finally encounter this mysterious “Demon” character because, well, the title of the episode leads me to believe as much.
