Now is not a good time to be Oliver Queen. While there may be plenty of times in which it seems awesome to be a hero to Starling City and to have an awesome costume, the guy has to deal with everything right now from Slade Wilson to Sebastian Blood to Isabel Rochev to now even his “friend” Roy Harper. We could have Slade 2.0 upon us now, at least unless he finds a way to stop Roy from going over the edge.
It is not entirely clear just what sort of impact Slade will have on Wednesday’s “Arrow‘ episode “Seeing Red,” and it may not be as much as you would think. While he has created his prison army now with the mirakuru, he has to make sure that they are functional. The same goes for Isabel. With all of their powers together, they should be formidable … especially if channeled properly.
This little break in that action (at least if our theory is correct) should be enough time for Oliver to try to get Roy in line. Unless the cure for the mirakuru is processed in record time by S.T.A.R. Labs, if they can figure it out at all, he is going to have to find a way to figure out Roy emotionally … possibly by using a part of him that he has previously locked away. He was not entirely compassionate to Slade and even tried to kill him versus giving him the pure; you have to think that this is one of the many reasons things went to hell for the two of them.
