Synopsis For Arrow’s 150th Episode Teases An Adventure Like None Before It


For the past few months, we’ve all been speculating on what’ll go down in Arrow‘s 150th episode. Seeing as how it’s titled “Emerald Archer,” it was only natural to assume that we could learn more about Oliver Queen’s estranged sister who shares a similar affinity for green leather outfits and compound bows. Of course, this was merely an educated guess.

To be honest, all we really knew about the milestone was that Stephen Amell said it was “so much fun” to film, and that other key members of the cast and crew touted it as being unlike any previous installment in the series. I thought those statements to be somewhat rooted in hyperbole at the time, but now it’s become clear that no exaggeration had been used.

Here, take a look at the synopsis for the episode in question and make sure you’re sitting down before reading:

ARROW FILMS THEIR 150TH EPISODE AS A DOCUMENTARY ENTITLED “THE HOOD AND THE RISE OF VIGILANTES” NARRATED BY KELSEY GRAMMER — The 150th episode of “Arrow” showcases a documentary entitled “The Hood and the rise of vigilantism” starring Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), and the rest of Team Arrow. As a camera crew follows Oliver and team around to talk about their past as vigilantes and what the Green Arrow means to Star City, Oliver must also deal with William’s (guest star Jack Moore) return from boarding school as well as a new threat to the city. The episode will feature “documentary footage” captured by the BTS crew and interviews from those who have worked alongside the Green Arrow. The documentary is narrated by Kelsey Grammer. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Emilio Ortega Aldrich (#712). Original airdate 2/4/2019.

Now, who here thought we’d be treated to a faux documentary narrated by Kelsey Grammer? Don’t raise your hands all at once.

If properly executed, this could wind up being one of the better episodes in an already exciting season. In fact, I’m wondering if the interview footage seen in the most recent trailer was taken from this, but I guess we won’t know until the time comes.

Arrow returns with new episodes on Monday, January 21st on The CW. “Emerald Archer,” however, is set to debut on February 4th.
