At the end of the last new “Arrow” episode that aired on The CW Wednesday night, Oliver Queen came to what was a very important realization. Ever since before he came back from the island, his mother and Tommy’s father have been involved in a dastardly plan that puts a good percentage of Starling City at risk. All season long, this has been in many ways under his nose, and he has not realized that one of the biggest threats to the people he loves is someone that is not even on his list.
So what does he do about it now? Luckily, we’re about to find out as Wednesday night’s new episode carries with it the title of “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” and based first and foremost on the synopsis below, it appears like we are in for quite an hour:
“With the Undertaking days away, Malcolm (guest star John Barrowman) dons his black hood to conclude business with seismologist Dr. Brion Markov (guest star Eric Floyd) and his team. Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Moira (Susanna Thompson) entertain a number of surprise — and mostly unwelcome — visitors. Hooded confrontations at home and the Meryln Global Group reveal dark secrets. Meanwhile, Roy (guest star Colton Haynes) and Thea (Willa Holland) are still looking out for a hero. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) makes a decision after Tommy’s (Colin Donnell) revelation. In a flashback to the island, Oliver, Slade (guest star Manu Bennett) and Shado (guest star Celina Jade) struggle to prevent Fyers (guest star Sebastian Dunn) from shooting a Ferris Air jet out of the sky.”
Of course, the “hero” that Thea and Roy are looking for is none other than the Hood, and we should also tease that one of the significant events that is coming up involves both Oliver and Laurel. Let’s hope that it is something significant enough that it can move us away from our Oliver / Felicity love, and put us back onto the two of them being together.
