This week on Arrow, now that we’re done promoting DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the whole cast except Ollie dies! Maybe! Probably not! By now, TV networks should know that threatening to kill the entire cast never works, because we know they’re not going to kill everybody. Maybe they’ll pretend, like, one person is dead for a week or something.
And even if they follow through, is killing everybody Ollie loves that great a plan, Damien? You know, Oliver Queen? Highly trained ninja, mercenary, and secret agent? Former heir to the title of Ra’s Al Ghul? Captain in the Russian mob? Man who has firmly established over the last three seasons that antagonizing him is a terrible idea?
On the other hand, watching Neal McDonough snark Ollie is probably going to make this silly evil plan worth watching, so there is that. Also, it looks like Darhk is done trying to be the man behind the scenes and is finally stepping out of his weirdly lit office to get in a few fights. Bring on the Force-choking and various magic attacks! Also bring on Felicity’s mom and Laurel’s dad dating! We’ll find out just how useful Darhk’s death chamber is tonight at 8 p.m. EST on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
