What’s up, Gasmii?!? Here we go with another episode of Arrow! I for one hope that there is more excuses than ever for some shirtlessness. Cross your fingers.
Last week on Arrow, Oliver fought a bitch in a wig and crossed another name off his revenge list, Whaurel was rather extraneous, and back on the island, a guy in a hoodie shot Oliver with an arrow.
We start with a voiceover from Oliver about how no one can know that he’s come back to the city to bring justice. And Oliver is shirtless, doing weird exercises in the first few seconds. Someone is listen to us, you guys.
It looks like his target this week will be James Holder, whose company does shit like putting defective smoke alarms in low income housing. We cut to Holder as he chills poolside on a rooftop at night. Arrow decides to shit on his evening and shoots the beer bottle Holder has in his hand. Arrow starts lecturing him, and we see that an unknown person is watching this interaction through a scope and a weird Kano from Mortal Kombat style eyepiece.
Kano can only get very specific roles, so good for him!
Arrow is about to threaten Holder into some sort of justice when the assassin shoots Holder in the heart! Arrow fires off a couple shots, then ducks behind a wall as the cyborg guy returns fire. One of the bullets grazed Arrow’s arm, and then we’re back at hq.
Oliver took a correspondence class with Parsons design school while he was on the island, so he decides to sew himself up. This is also another great excuse for shirtless Ollie.
“I suppose a topstitch will do.”
He crosses Holder off his list, so I guess he needs to find someone else to harass this week or go after the assassin. He’s wobbly and his vision is blurry, so he realizes the bullet was poisoned. He quickly goes to his naughty trunk and chokes down a bezoar.
He also studied with Hogwarts via owl when he was on the island.
We flash back to the island where Oliver wakes up in a cave with the arrow still jutting out of his chest. The hoodie guy walks in, and Oliver asks who he is and why he shot him. Hoodie says in Chinese that it was to protect him. He has Oliver eat some herbs and drink something, then pulls the arrow out. Gross.
Not the kind of shaft Oliver wants to be penetrated by, amiright?
Back at hq, some alarm goes off, and Oliver heads home to find police present. Thea and her friends got wasted and broke into a store, and I’m already sick of her attention-starved behavior. Diggle lost Oliver when he went to the bathroom last night, and Diggle says he’ll just have to watch him pee from now on.
