This week is the first of a two-part story, with Oliver and Slade headed off on a mission to rescue Slade’s son, while the rest of the team remains behind in Star City to face a familiar villain: Vigilante. Team Arrow also faces rising heat from FBI Agent Samanda Watson, as she expands her search for the colleagues of the Green Arrow. Flashbacks into Slade and his son’s past shed light on why this rescue mission may not be as straightforward as initially planned.
Villains continue to be unveiled this week as the identity of Cayden James is made known, as well as his target: Felicity Smoak. Team Arrow has to tackle the new kind of threat he and Helix bring, with the return of other villains and potential allies – and Oliver attempts to support his team without being in the field, in a role-reversal that proves to be a challenge as the villains pile up this episode.
This week we find Team Arrow under a new face and new leadership, as Diggle picks up the mantle of Green Arrow, per Oliver’s request. A new villain (Onyx) faces off against this new incarnation of Team Arrow, while the team tries to figure out how to work together after all the secrets and change-ups. Meanwhile, Oliver juggles duties as the mayor and as a father, as new challenges arrive on each front, and a new anti-vigilante referendum threatens the safety of everyone on the team and in the city.
As Oliver Queen struggles to squelch the rising questions and leaks exposing a connection between the Green Arrow and Star City’s mayor, his team comes face-to-face with a familiar Russian friend/enemy. Tension mounts as Diggle is forced to bring to light secrets that are incapacitating him, while Felicity and Curtis have an idea that may help the team going forward. Meanwhile, Oliver also struggles with issues at home, as fathering William is turning out to be a more complex job that it seemed.
As the title of the season 6 premiere of Arrow suggests, Oliver Queen is left to deal with the fallout of the island explosion, both from the position of the Green Arrow, and also as the mayor of Star City. Familiar and unfamiliar villain faces stand in his way, as the story of what happened on the island unfolds, and we’re left with the answer to the question we’ve had all summer: who from Team Arrow survives?
On our preseason kickoff, Martin and Cammie chat about all the highlights from season 5, the teasers for season 6 (no major spoilers!) and what we can expect from our Team Arrow heroes. In season 6 of Arrow we’ll have an all new time and date, on Thursdays at 9pm EST (on the CW network) and we’re looking forward to new stories, familiar faces, and a long lineup of known and unknown villains for our heroes to tackle. Casting news, storyline speculations, and who survived the island? It’s all here.
The season finale also serves as a wrap-up point for Oliver Queen’s five year journey on the island/in exile, and we see Oliver of the past prepare to return home from the islands in the flashbacks as Oliver in the present faces new dangers on the same island, as all of his team and the people he loves have joined him on the island. Oliver and everyone either on his team or willing to side with him face off against Prometheus and his team of anyone with a vendetta against Oliver, resulting in the toughest decision yet for Green Arrow – when saving his city turns into saving his family.

Many new players join the final game as Prometheus is now forced to pull in outside forces to carry out his master plan while he is in jail. Oliver then must do the same, as more people from Team Arrow go missing, resulting in a full line up of past villains and heroes ready to face off. Though some of Oliver’s team seem to have a plan to escape, Chase has yet a final piece of his plan to reveal: Oliver’s son. The flashbacks and present day grow closer as everyone heads willingly or unwillingly to the island. Read More…
As we draw closer to the final face-off between Oliver and Prometheus, the team must work together and draw on all resources and outside forces to take him down. Thea Queen returns to Star City, just in time to find new and unsettling information about Robert Queen’s past, bringing into question the legacy he has left for them. Other father/child relationships are strained on the team as well, as Rene must determine, with Lance’s help, what can be done about the custody of his child. On top of all of that, a new villain is unearthed this week, in the form of guest-star Cody Rhodes, and even more surprising new and old villains may be in the shadows, as Team Arrow prepares for many final battles.

In this week’s episode, we see Oliver and Felicity trapped in the Arrow cave, and the clock is ticking on the rest of Team Arrow to help them escape. Traps are exposed, injuries pile up, and moral conflicts reach their peak as Diggle, Lyla, Dinah, Rene, and Curtis all band together to help the two escape. While the team battles Prometheus’s trap, he has even more ominous plans elsewhere… Read More…
