‘Arrow’ Video Recap Show: Roy’s Return and the Fate of Amanda Waller

     February 4, 2016


This week on the Collider Arrow recap show, Ann Campea, Josh Macuga, Michael Medina, Jason Inman and special guest Cynthia Addai-Robinson catch up on the hit CW series discussing tonight’s all new episode.

Last week, we witnessed the death of a key character, Amanda Waller. All of us are dying to know if she is truly dead. Let’s see what Cynthia Addai-Robinson has to say about it.

In addition to the shocking death, last week’s episode gifted Diggle fans with a Diggle family centric episode. The episode finally brought us to a key moment in the exploration of the relationship between John and Andy Diggle. The flashbacks provided a glimpse into the brothers’ past in Afghanistan and while it did not do much to move the plot along, it did introduce an emotional aspect to the relationship that has been lacking thus far. Andy also finds a moment of redemption, helping to save Lyla from Shadowspire, an organization who’s responsible for the drug called Slam made in the fields of Lian Yu.

Speaking of redemption, tonight’s episode marks the return of actor Colton Haynes as Roy Harper, a character who has been in constant search of such. Roy will resume his vigilante activities as Arsenal and all of us are dying to witness the reaction of Ms. Thea Queen, who has also chosen a vigilante lifestyle since Roy’s departure from the show last season.

We’ll also be introduced to a new villain, The Calculator, played by Tom Amandes. Rumors are flying on the interwebs that The Calculator could be Felicity’s father due to his hyper-intelligence and tactical capacity. Tonight’s episode will prove to be a battle of brains and one that should not be missed.

How did this episode stack up against the rest? Is Amanda Waller really dead? Is Roy Harper back in Star City for good? We discuss all of this and lots more on this week’s episode of Collider Arrow!
