With Deathstroke squared away (for now), Oliver Queen can return to his city and enjoy his fairly comfortable life as mayor and father. Unless, of course, this preview of next week’s Arrow is true and Ollie ends up in jail.
And as he points out, the notion that the Green Arrow is in jail will lead to new crime wave with Cayden James (Michael Emerson), Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), and Black Siren all poised to move. Is it possible they’ve been coordinating all along? Which leads to another question. Early on, producers indicated that each member of Team Arrow would have an specific opponent during the season. The match ups appear to be the following: Black Canary and Vigilante, Diggle and Ricardo Diaz, Cayden James and Felicity … but what about Curtis, Rene and Ollie? I suppose FBI Special Agent Samanda Watson (Sydelle Noel) is his antagonist, but Wild Dog and Mr. Terrific need their own marquee villains to square off against, right?
Arrow airs Thursdays on The CW.
