Star City was not short of vigilantes in last night’s episode of ‘Arrow’. A new vigilante attacked and killed members of a human trafficking ring saving the young girl they were about to sell. He then hung two of their bodies out in the alley for the SCPD to find.
Throughout the episode the presence of this new vigilante makes Oliver question whether or not he should continue on the righteous path or go back to his old ways. The new vigilante is getting results much faster than he is. Ollie reveals his concerns to Susan Williams who reassures him that doing things the right way is the only way. Even if the results are harder to come by. She then goes on to invite him out for a friendly drink.
Thea is once again on Quentin patrol. Quentin comes clean to Thea telling her he never was on the wagon; he’s been drinking the whole time. He then hands her his letter of resignation for Deputy Mayor. Thea won’t let him get off that easily. She goes to talk to Quentin and show him that they are still here for him. That he is like family. Quentin then goes on to tell Thea about the blood and ninja star Prometheus left him. Why is Prometheus trying to frame him? Quentin says he is damaged goods and wants to stay away from Oliver and Thea for their safety. You think he would realize Thea hasn’t and won’t give up on him that easily. Thea brings Quentin to rehab and tells him the Deputy Mayor position will be waiting for him when he gets out.
While this is going on the new vigilante is stalking new prey; a group of robbers led by a former prisoner named Dunn. Oliver attacks the new vigilante before he kills Dunn. Dunn escapes and the new vigilante tells Oliver and company “If you’re not with me then you’re against me.” Oliver tells him that they are against him and in return the new vigilante tells Oliver he is a dead man.
The team then goes on the hunt for Dunn, hoping to find him before the vigilante does. During re-con Spartan goes AWOL and punches a guy a few times. He was unwisely taking out his frustrations on him because Spartan is now a fugitive and had to miss his son’s second birthday. Meanwhile Ragman and Artemis do some re-con of their own, trapping another man in the alley. The man tells them how Dunn picks a bank; he choose them based on their proximity to the SCPD. Unfortunately for Dunn the new vigilante finds them first and goes on the attack. Team Arrow arrives and the vigilante fires at them. Dunn is injured but once again escapes.
Ollie finds an injured Dunn in a hotel. The new vigilante goes on the attack, shooting up the hotel room. Ollie saves Dunn and keeps him safe until they can deal with the new vigilante. John then comes up with a plan to rob a bank in order to draw the new vigilante out. The vigilante sneaks up on Artemis and Mr. Terrific who are staking out in the arrow-van. He takes Terrific hostage and beats him up. He wants Oliver one on one. He then goes on to tell Ollie that he is not getting the job done because he isn’t taking it seriously. Ollie saves Curtis and takes on the new vigilante. He captures him momentarily but a smoke bomb goes off and the new vigilante gets away.
The Green Arrow delivers Dunn to SCPD and Thea tells Oliver about Quentin and the throwing star. Ollie thinks Prometheus knows he is the green arrow.
Back at the arrow-cave Wild Dog shows his sweet side after the mission and brings Lyla and John Jr. to Diggle for a party.
In Russia, Oliver has his own party of sorts’. Konstantine Kovar has… well forces Oliver to have dinner with him while he is captive. A week of capture, a week of torture and he still won’t give anything up. He is very impressed.
Later on in the episode we learn that Kovar’s maid is Tiana’s mother. The woman from the island who Oliver killed along with her brother. Tiana said Kovar was a monster. Kovar then throws out another hand from his bag of many tricks and gives Oliver the file of Pyotr Friedkin, the guy he killed jail and gave info on black market site now controlled by Bratva.
Done with the games Oliver pulls a knife on Kovar and tells him to release him. Kovar is able to trick Oliver and he is recaptured. Kovar beats up Ollie and he learns Bratva made a deal with Kovar.
There seems to be a lot of double-crossing going on in the arrow-verse. Speaking of…
Artemis is a double agent! She is working with Prometheus!!!! But why? What does he have over her? Or does she know him? Who is Prometheus?!?!?!
Heroes v Aliens 4 night crossover event! Crossover palooza!!!!
