Let’s Talk This Week’s Geeky TV: ‘Arrow’ Meets A Vigilante

11.16.16 1 year ago 120 Comments

Last week on Arrow, we discovered Quentin is a huge Fight Club fan and Ollie met Dolph Lundgren, which would be cool except Dolph is trying to kill him. This week, the show finally reveals yet another vigilante, which, if you’re a comic book fan, you’ve been expecting ever since we met the DA Adrian Chase.

The Vigilante, who obviously turns up in this episode, is, er, a vigilante who runs around beating up people. In the ’80s, Alan Moore used him to deconstruct exactly what would drive a rich person to run around beating up muggers, which seems to resemble the tack that Arrow is taking with this particular story. So that will be fun, but there’s still the question hanging overhead: What the heck is up with Quentin?

No, seriously, last night the guy woke up with a scratch on his arm and one of Prometheus’ creepy throwing stars, made from the arrowheads Ollie used to maim and kill people, on his coffee table. Is he being framed? Does he have some form of disassociative disorder? Did he literally just get so drunk he magically became a ninja? Inquiring minds want to know, especially as the big honking crossover kicks in next episode. We’ll find out tonight at 8pm EST on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
