Wow I cannot believe that we are hitting the fourth season of “Arrow” which is as you know the continuing adventures of the emerald archer Oliver Queen who most of us know as The Green Arrow. Of course in the show he is not called anything more than The Vigilante and The Arrow but check out the new season poster, the past happenings and cast thanks to the shows Wiki entry and then we can discuss this a little more.
The Premise and What You’ve Missed:
The series follows Oliver Queen, billionaire playboy of Starling City, who spends five years shipwrecked on a mysterious island. Upon his return to Starling City, he is reunited with his mother, Moira Queen, his sister, Thea Queen, and his friend, Tommy Merlyn. The first season focuses on Oliver rekindling his relationships and spending his nights hunting down and sometimes killing wealthy criminals as a hooded vigilante. He uncovers a conspiracy to destroy “The Glades”, a poorer section of the city that has become overridden with crime. John Diggle and Felicity Smoak assist Oliver in his crusade. Oliver also reconnects with ex-girlfriend, Laurel Lance, who is still angry over his role in her sister’s presumed death. The first season also features flashbacks to Oliver’s time on the island, and how it changed him; this continues in subsequent seasons. In season two, Oliver has vowed to stop crime without killing criminals, and comes under attack from Slade Wilson, a man from Oliver’s time on the island who resurfaces with a vendetta against him. Oliver must also contend with outside forces attempting to take over Queen Consolidated, guilt from decisions he made in the past, and secrets harbored by his family and friends.
