In my view, Arrow‘s seventh season aired its best and most exciting episode yet earlier this evening. I mean, not only was it intriguing and delivered some cool fight scenes, but this installment revealed the mysterious “Demon” to be Talia al Ghul in very short order.
Of course, one could say this was an obvious solution, though you can never be too sure. After all, we hadn’t seen anything from the master assassin since Lian Yu went up in flames at the end of season 5. But after hearing how she survived and ran afoul of someone in Gotham (probably Batwoman), Ms. al Ghul ended up taking up residence in the same prison as Oliver Queen.
Difficult as it had to have been, Ollie did help his former mentor escape from Slabside so that she may get vital information to Felicity, yet he opted to stay behind and not become a fugitive. Time will tell if his decision yields desired results, but we can at least feast our eyes on the first promo for next week’s episode, “Due Process,” which can be viewed at the top of this article. Actually, this wasn’t the only brief teaser premiering tonight, as the first trailer for the “Elseworlds” crossover also dropped, but let’s stay on topic, shall we?
If you were to ask me, Oliver may not hold onto his patience for much longer because, don’t forget, episode 7×07 is titled “The Slabside Redemption,” so that forces me to believe he’ll be running free in Star City in the very near future.
For more on “Due Process,” be sure to check out the official synopsis:
