We have no review this week, but this is the place to discuss “Dodger,” in which a familiar-looking jewel thief arrives in Starling City, while Thea and Diggle make new friends.
Another strong episode. We get a huge amount of Island Exposition, and a new person is brought into the fold.
Another review by Jethro:
This week gives us a very aptly named episode, in which everyone pretty much either betrays someone, is betrayed by someone, suspects someone’s betraying them, or all three.
Green Arrow doesn’t have many memorable villains, does he? This ep tried to give him one. Jethro reviews the results:
This week gave us some good character development (as usual) but sadly an extremely predictable plot, as well as a Muppet supervillain.
I thought Arrow did Batman this week (more so than usual), especially with that comment near the end. My wife found it “superficial.”
Jethro, however, has considered the ep in some depth:
Fairly strong episode this week! John Barrowman tries to reconnect with his son (or IS HE?) while manipulating Moira. Speedy stumbles on some secrets (though perhaps not the ones we were expecting), while Oliver and Diggle get into a conflict over OH MY GOD IT’S BEN BROWDER.
Arrow has returned, and our man Jethro has a review.
For the new year, we get a bunch of character development, and the vigilante gains some acceptance.
We have no review for the final episode of 2012, but we can have a dicussion. Last week, a new archer arrived in town. Will his crimes be blamed on Ollie? And Can Ollie save the Queens’ Christmas party?
Jethro has a review of this week’s Arrow.
Oliver meets a kindred spirit, Tommy’s life suffers a major course change, and we find out a bit more about John Barrowman’s character.
Oh and Tahmoh Penikett continues his role as our genre’s Ted McGinley.
