On this episode of the Arrow Recap Show, covering Episode 7 of Season 4, Ann Campea, Josh Macuga, Michael Medina, and Jason Inman discuss the following:
- Diggle’s reaction to his brother, Andy, being alive
- Damien Darhk’s army of ‘Yellow-Pill’ soldiers
- Rekindling of the brotherhood between Diggle and Oliver
- The campaign manager, Alex’s, secret identity?
- Malcolm Merlyn’s protection of Thea
- Laurel kicking ass
- Predictions for next week’s episode and how right Jason’s crazy theories are
The action-packed “Brotherhood” followed the team as they infiltrated a tech facility for Damien Darhk’s Ghosts’ gene-scrambling chemical. They were surprised to find a very alive Andy Diggle – John Diggle’s brother. Andy is now a Ghost for HIVE. Oliver and Diggle find themselves at odds on how to handle the situation. One wants to bring in Andy for all the wrong he’s done, and one wants to help clear his name.
We also see Damien Darhk meeting Oliver – sans hood. Has he revealed himself to Darhk when they talked about his bayfront campaign? Heading back to the action, the team barely makes it out of the docks alive, fighting their way through the horde of Ghosts. We see the Black Canary in battle, and winning! Finally the team rescues Andy and frees him from the Ghosts, and with some last minute assist from “Spartan” Diggle, everyone makes it out alive.
Another thing we have to mention is when Thea faces Darhk. Just as Damien is about to work his mythical magic on her, something strange happens to protect Thea from harm. This also stopped her bloodlust for the time being. Is it the Lazarus pit effect or is something else at play?
