Hello there, Gasmii and Arrow lovers! Welcome back to our CW guilty pleasure. I read that Arrow got picked up for a full season, so yay! I assume that means 22 episodes, so hopefully the plot progression won’t slow down in the weeks to come. Anyway, previously on Arrow, Walter Steele discovered that Moira Queen was housing the wreckage of the Queen boat, and Detective Douchey Dickface arrests Oliver for being Arrow.
We start this week on the Island, so hopefully we’ll get some damn answers. Hoodie shoots a rabbit, and gives Oliver a shot at the bow.
Popping his arrow cherry.
He misses his target, and Hoodie send him off to retrieve the arrow when all of the sudden The Others snatch his ass up!
The Dharma station The Pit.
Oliver gets booked and voiceovers that he’s going to get the hell out of this situation. DD is interviewing Ollie and is being an asshole as usual. Ollie says it’s all a mistake. He claims he just happened to find the duffel with the hood. We’ve all heard/used that excuse before. Moira and Steele come in, and they put an end to the interrogation.
Oliver predictably wants Laurel to be his attorney. Wouldn’t that be some sort of conflict of interest?
“Her titties will distract any who oppose us.”
Ollie thinks Laurel can get her father off his vendetta for thinking it’s Ollie’s fault that the other slutty daughter is dead. Moira goes to see Whaurel and tells her what Ollie wants. He will be refusing representation unless it’s her. Whaurel says it wouldn’t be a good idea, but we all know it’s going to happen.
At the arraignment, Ollie says he will be representing himself. As the opposition is asking for no bail due to flight risk and a wealth of resources, Whaurel comes in as his lawyer of course. She gets a $5 million bond and a promise of house arrest. She tells him there’s no way he could be the vigilante, because Robin Hoodie is actually trying to make a difference, and that’s not Ollie’s style. I guess his tough guy act is working.
Oliver gets his device fitted at home, and announces he’s throwing himself a party. With a prison theme.
“The invite says ‘cum before Oliver Queen gets off.’” No commentary necessary.
DD visits Whaurel, and she tries to get him to see reason. It’s not his fault that Sarah is dead. Or the reason mom left. Is this the first we’re hearing of this? Maybe the mom left after Sarah died.
Diggle visits Ollie, and Ollie claims that the surveillance video and arrest was all part of his plan. Ollie says the mission comes first, and shows us Leo Muller. A suspected German arms dealer. He arrived in Starling City last night to sell some military guns. Ollie wants Diggle to shadow the guy and find out where the buy is happening, to which Diggle agrees. He gives Diggle access to the toys at Arrow Headquarters.
