If anything, tonight’s episode of Arrow showed us how the flash forwards are quickly becoming more intriguing than whatever’s going on in the present. I mean, when Roy Harper gives us a tour of a dystopic future where Dinah Drake is an aging Black Canary and has taken Wild Dog’s daughter under her wing, how can you not expect me to favor that unfolding mystery?
Still, there’s no guarantee of that being explored next week, as the first promo for “The Demon” focuses entirely on Oliver Queen’s ongoing misfortunes. After being subjected to some psychiatric “rehabilitation” by Slabside’s top shelf shrink in “Level Two,” our hero seems as though he’s ready to lose his marbles.
Considering how the footage provided shows him ready to kick some serious ass, it’s fair to say he’ll be doing more than sitting on a bench seven days from now. Not only that, but one can only assume he’ll meet whomever this elusive “Demon” character is. If not, the episode should’ve been titled differently.
When it comes to what’s going on in Star City, fingers remain crossed that we’ll get to see more of the new Green Arrow in action. Just this evening, we learned of their remarkable athletic ability and selfless nature, so let’s see if indeed Emiko Queen of comic book lore is under the hood when the big reveal comes.
