Now I know why I can't see Oliver sad.
I was going to start writing my recap when a thought came to me, and now I have to work it out.

It’s not a shock to say to anyone that our Oliver, the charming Stephen Amell, has grown as an actor by leaps and bounds since he took this show on, and it is never more apparent than when Oliver is crushed or sad. Let me illustrate this with visuals.
First like the scientists we are, let us establish our base line.

1. Broody Oliver, or “Neutral Oliver”, because this is homeboy’s default setting: Slight acceleration in ...Read more

'Sup. Arrow Photo Recap 306, "Guilty"
Y'all I can't even say how excited I am about recapping this ep. I would venture to say I am more excited that I was for the previous episode, because this is a Laurel-centric ep. "But Connie," you're thinking, "you have made it pretty damn clear you don't think kindly of her character arc!" AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHY. I am firing on all cylinders, so fair warning. I am locked and loaded for satire, and will likely make little to no effort to be deep. Frolic through this field with me.

We start with Oliver rudely interrupting Roy reliving the trauma of his "OMFG I killed Sara" dream and once again, telling him to "get his head into the game." Let's just put a mental bookmark on this, K? Team Arrow's trying to stop a massive Culebra drug deal yadda yadda. What you ...Read more

Who dunnit? The evidence so far and unknown knowns

While I'm sure that Arrow isn't going to do the big reveal about Sara's killer until after the mid-season break or possibly as the mid-season cliff-hanger I think there might be enough clues dropped in the show to point the finger at the killer. The hard facts seem to be a little thin on the ground, but after episode 6 (Guilty) we were reminded that we often know more than we think we do. So far the show has only given us three hard facts
1) Sara knew her killer.
2) Sara was killed by an archer.
3) The archer isn't that tall.

Not much to work with right? But look a little bit more closely and we find we know more than we think we do. Lets start at the bottom of the list and work up, when Oliver tracked down the guy who was ...Read more

Let's give Laurel / Canary her own show please?
The CW has struggled on the ratings front with most new shows over the past yeas except for shows of the supernatural/superhero variety, so how about a spin off from Arrow for Laurel/Canary so that her many fans can get to enjoy her surely very excellent adventures in going from lawyer/ADA to superhero in record time? A fascinating journey of personal growth and muscle building without a doubt...

That would free up time on Arrow for... I don't know... Arrow stuff?

In the beginning, there was a training montage. And it was good.
It ends with Thea questioning ...Read more

Arrow is a modern retelling of the DC Comic character Green Arrow. Multi-millionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing, and presumed dead after a shipwreck at sea.

Oliver decides to put his skills to use by taking on the persona of Arrow and becoming the vigilante that Starling City needs.
