This week’s Arrow features a returned brother, a bloodthirsty Thea, and a tortuous flashback that feels a little off-tone. We also see better-than-CW fight sequences, and a meeting between Ollie Queen and Damien Darhk, whose Mysticahl Powehrs apparently don’t permit him to see through the World’s Second-Most Obvious Disguise.


Otherwise, our CW DC shows go on hiatus next week, and return with Vandal Savage and a crossover that will kickstart Legends.
