Team Arrow has fought cults, conspiracies, ninjas, mages, mugs, pugs, thugs, arms dealers, bank-robbing bandits, rustlers, cut throats, Deathstrokes, bounty hunters, desperadoes, vipers, snipers, Suicide Squads, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, and Methodists. But now they face their greatest challenge: Hipsters!
Thankfully, hipsters are not taking over traditionally vibrant and multicultural neighborhoods and turning them into blocks of chain stores and artisanal coffee shops. No, they’re just sending robot bees to attack people, eat them, and turn into more robot bees, which is still better than gentrification. And yes, this is the return of the Bug-Eyed Bandit, a villain who really is getting a lot of mileage out of these DC series. Seriously, he, well, now she, hasn’t been a villain in a comic book since the 1990s. See, it’s never too late for a comeback!
Anyway, she’s targeting Ollie, and everyone at Palmer Tech, with her replicating bees. It turns out she wants the chip that lets Felicity walk, and she’ll kill everybody in the building to get it. Which seems a bit much since she could just steal the plans from the building, but she is a robot bee lady, she has to stay on brand. We’ll see if Ollie can be spared a death worth of Nic Cage tonight at 8pm EST on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
