Granted, we may be only two episodes into the current season of Arrow, but I’m pretty sure of how not many reading this will disagree with me in saying that the show has never been more different. Though I’m reasonably certain we’ll eventually return to some semblance of the old status quo, I can’t help feeling like Oliver Queen is living out his own version of Prison Break while the rest of his pals on the outside are taking up residence on NCIS: Los Angeles.
To the uninitiated, I just made it sound like there’s not much sense of coherency, but I assure you there is. You see, both Ollie and the former members of Team Arrow are doing all they can to take down Ricardo Diaz from varying spots, something I imagine will really begin taking shape before long.
In the meantime, though, we have the promo for next week’s episode, “Crossing Lines,” to examine. Found at the top of this article, the video package doesn’t reveal all that much, yet it does hint at Oliver toeing the moral line when we join him next.
To his credit, our hero managed to find a way to get on Danny Brickwell’s good side during tonight’s episode without compromising his integrity, so let’s see if he can keep it up. Regardless, it looks like someone at Slabside is in for a serious ass-kicking.
