Tonight: “Arrow” On The CW Network (10/12/2017)

Alright, I’m down to the last of the currently running DC Comics television shows that were premiering this week. “Arrow” begins its sixth season this evening, so below you will find the dramatic season poster along with some previous season recap and casting. I’ll close out with where I am at with the show at this point as well when we close up.

Season Five Recap: In season five, Oliver trains young heroes Wild Dog, Mister Terrific, Artemis, and Ragman to join him in his war on crime following Laurel’s death and Thea’s resignation. He subsequently recruits a new Black Canary as well: metahuman vigilante and former police detective Dinah Drake. Supported by new allies, Oliver tries to balance vigilantism with his new role as mayor. He is also threatened by the mysterious and deadly villain Prometheus, who has a connection to Oliver’s past. In flashbacks, Oliver joins the Bratva in Russia as part of an plot to assassinate Konstantin Kovar. There, he meets and is trained by one of Ra’s al Ghul’s daughters, Talia al Ghul, as a hooded archer, before eventually returning to Lian Yu.

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.
