Framed for murder by the Ninth Circle, Oliver Queen hits the road to prove his innocence. This leaves Seattle in the capable hands of Ollie’s friends. Taking its name from Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams’ famous run (minus the social commentary), part one of “Hard Traveling Hero” catches up to Green Arrow on the road where his investigation crosses paths with another member of the Justice League: the Flash.

The Fifth Season of Arrow comes to a close in an explosive season finale that returns Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) to Lian Yu to save his kidnapped friends and put an end to Prometheus (Josh Segarra) once and for all. And with the deck stacked against him, he’s not going alone. It’s homecoming week in the season finale as Ollie enlists the help of Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law), Digger Harkness (Nick E. Tarabay), and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). The final choice is a bit odd, considering the last dozen times we’ve seen him Deathstroke has been murderously intent on killing Oliver. Apparently sometimes prison rehabilitation works, as Slade is less murdery and crazy than we saw him last. While one of Oliver’s rag-tag band betrays him, Slade proves to be worthy of his trust.

Desperation makes strange bedfellows. As Oliver‘s (Stephen Amell) loved ones start going missing in a coordinated attack planned by the imprisoned Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra), our hero is forced to procure Chase’s release and put together his own team to take on the likes of Chase, Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig), Black Siren (Katie Cassidy), and Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin).

The reveal of Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) as a serial killer creates all kinds of new trouble in Star City as dozens of criminals prosecuted by Prometheus are set free. Meanwhile, Oliver‘s (Stephen Amell) attention is drawn to the madman’s latest mind game involving an unearthed corpse delivered to city hall of a man killed by Robert Queen (Jamey Sheridan). Returned to town just in time for the twisted surprise (wow, what a coincidence), Thea‘s (Willa Holland) belief in the father who raised her will be tested as the truth comes to light. Even behind bars Prometheus’ games haven’t stopped. What else does he have up his sleeve?

scooby-doo-team-up-25-gl-ga

While ultimately I don’t think Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #25 quite lives up to its promise, it’s hard for me not to enjoy a comic that so blatantly celebrates the Bronze Age pairing of Green Lantern and Green Arrow. When Mystery, Inc. travels into Karma Corners the group of meddling kids and their talking dog run across a pair of hard-traveling heroes (making reference to Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams famous comic run).

arrow-disbanded-1

Oliver (Stephen Amell) has pushed away family and friends “for their own good” far too often for “Disbanded” to be a stand-out episode of the series. Arrow goes back to that same well again with its latest episode, although their is a twist this time. Rather than forcing others out of his one-man crusade, this time a defeated Green Arrow is attempting to shut down the crusade for everyone. There’s more than a little hubris hear as a shattered Oliver decides if he can’t be Star City’s vigilante none of his team can be either.

arrow-fighting-fire-with-fire

Since they were introduced it was obvious that either Billy Malone or Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) was going to eventually be revealed as Prometheus. Billy’s death made it all too easy to guess the identity of the season’s big bad. As expected, Adrian is revealed to be Prometheus in “Fighting Fire With Fire” although Ollie (Stephen Amell) won’t know this for at least another week. The main focus of the latest episode is Oliver and company (heh) going into damage-control mode after Chase leaks the cover-up in Green Arrow’s involvement in Billy’s murder. Facing impeachment, Oliver decides drastic action is called for, and rather than blackmail those deciding his fate or throw one of his subordinates to the wolves, Mayor Queen decides to turn the city’s hero into the bad guy.

arrow-spectre-of-the-gun

Arrow gets a bit preachy with “Spectre of the Gun.” After a shooting in city hall that leaves multiple victims injured or dead, the show’s response isn’t for Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) to suit up and track down the killer but instead for Mayor to take a hard look at his position on guns and examine what the Mayor can do that Green Arrow cannot. For most of the episode the arguments in favor and against stricter gun laws are handled by Curtis (Echo Kellum) and Rene (Rick Gonzalez) who go twelve rounds about guns in the hands of private citizens and whether or not they help or hurt the public good. Flashbacks this week aren’t from Ollie’s time in Russia but from Rene’s past where we learn more about events which led him to pick up a hockey mask and crystallized his view on guns. The usually opinionated Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), however, is cast in the role of Switzerland trying to keep the peace on a topic she believes can never be worked out.

arrow-bratva-1

The search for the escaped General Walker (Garry Chalk) and his stolen nuclear weapon take Oliver (Stephen Amell) and company to Russia where he’ll be forced to make some hard choices to prevent Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) from both going down a dangerous road. Getting the information they need from Anatoly (David Nykl) means opening a door to his past and letting the Bratva back into his life which will likely have lasting consequences for everyone connected to Star City’s Mayor.
