Despite the surprising turn on this week’s Arrow, Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) finds a way to get what he wants: another shot at Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). And if this preview of next week’s show is any indication, all of Slabside will be on fire before the end. Can Oliver take on a whole prison and the seemingly power-boosted Diaz by himself?
I genuinely hope this is some grand crescendo to the Diaz story. As someone who’s never been overly fond of the character, it would be nice to see him retired or killed. An Arrow without his constant threat would be something I’d want to watch. It’s probably no accident that watching Team Arrow reunite to take him down led to one of the best episodes of the season. Hopefully, the momentum will continue next week and Diaz will finally be defeated.
Arrow airs Mondays on The CW.
