arrow-corto-maltese

In an episode used to continue to develop Arrow‘s supporting characters and move them a bit further on their journey to likely one-day becoming full members of Team Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Roy (Colton Haynes) head down to Corto Maltese to convince Thea (Willa Holland) to return with them to Starling City unaware that she’s been living and training with her not-so-dead father Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) for the past several months. Doing a favor for Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson), Diggle (David Ramsey) accompanies the group to find a member of A.R.G.U.S. that turns out to be more complicated than he was led to believe and plants a seed of doubt about A.R.G.U.S. which may come to bloom later this season (especially if he learns of Ollie’s own experiences with the group).

The death of Sara rocks the team as Oliver (Stephen Amell) hunts down assassin Simon Lacroix (Matt Ward) who has been hunting down and killing those involved in a lucrative oil deal with a bow and arrow and whose brand of weapon makes him the obvious suspect in Sara’s murder. The loss of Sara also heightens Oliver’s fears about not hearing from Thea (Willa Holland) who has been secretly training with her not-so-dead birth-father Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) over the past few months.

Season Three starts with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) finally at peace. Despite the death of his mother and the disappearance of his sister, Oliver’s life is back on track with Roy (Colton Haynes) taking on his new role of Arsenal helping gel the team into a cohesive unit. Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne) not only has his old job back but a fancy new promotion which allows him to force the Starling City police force to officially recognize their hooded hero. Properly title “Calm,” the good times don’t last as the storm clouds on the horizon start rolling in leaving one member of Oliver’s extended family dead, another in the hospital, and any hope of Oliver getting control of his company or beginning a relationship with Felicity in ashes.

The comic’s five-issue opening arc comes to a close with the team’s return from Rann, but two members don’t make the trip. I was surprised to see Hawkman‘s death not quickly reversed, and given his new connection to Alanna and the Zeta Beam the safest place for Adam Strange is Rann meaning the comic has lost two of its core members before ever getting started.

Arrow‘s Second Season, along with the long-brewing battle between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), comes to an end with Deathstoke’s super-strong army tearing apart Starling City and Amanda Waller‘s (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) A.R.G.U.S. drones ready to turn the city into sinkhole rather than allow any one of Deathstroke’s men to escape. Thankfully there is some good news. Star Labs’ cure works on restoring Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) to normal, and Ollie and company receive some much needed back-up by Diggle‘s (David Ramsey) friend Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) as well as Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and the League of Assassins brought back to Starling by Sara (Caity Lotz) promise to return to the League should they survive the night.

Things are looking bleak for the heroes of Starling City. Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) are buried alive, the cure from Star Labs falls into Slade Wilson‘s (Manu Bennett) hands, Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) is alive and deadlier than ever, the city is on fire, Deathstroke’s super-powered insane army is killing indiscriminately, and Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro), naively believing he can still salvage the situation, refuses to call in for help leaving the city’s police force the only thing standing between Starling City and utter destruction.
