While Team Arrow has enjoyed a new working relationship with the SCPD, the situation has changed slightly. Now, Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Renee (Rick Gonzalez) must take a basic police training course. On its face, it seems ridiculous — a point made in the following preview for next week’s show — but it may lead to the end of Team Arrow’s time as deputies.
Meanwhile, I’d love to believe that Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) is finally dead (in a prison cell no less!), but the Dragon is wily and evaded every other death the show has thrown at him. Why should this one be any different? Sure, Dante (Adrian Paul) is now acknowledged as the big bad, but Diaz can always be his scarred and scheming lackey, right? Of course, I’d be just as happy to see Diaz gone, especially as Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) has resolved her issues with him. But you never know with this show.
Arrow airs Mondays on The CW.
