Finally we get some background story on what happened to Sarah Lance all of those years. We see her transform from college party girl to assassin.

We experienced Sarah wanting to keep her family safe. In the past couple episodes we watched her observe her family from a distance and now she needs to protect them for the wrath of the League. But there’s a catch, how can she protect them without them being aware she’s still alive?

This is where Felicity comes in. She warns Detective Lance that he’s in grave danger, but he refuses to listen. Lance believes that every time he puts on his uniform he’s in danger.

Sarah has no choice, but to come clean to her father. Her main worry is that he will now know what she’s become, a cold-hearted killer. Sarah brings her father to the bell tower where she’s been staying and awaits the arrival of the League.

You can imagine the stunned look on her fathers face when he realizes that his daughter is a better fighter than himself. When the Arrow drops in to help with the fight, Detective Lance realizes that his daughter is the Black Canary.

After killing off two of the ninjas and sending one back with a message to report to the head honcho, Sarah makes her father promise that he will keep her secret and that he won’t tell Laurel or her mother that she’s alive. If he does that, then the League will kill them all.

As Sarah runs off in the moonlight, we realize that everything tied into Sarah’s fight with the League. Maybe even Moira’s big secret also has something to do with Sarah and Oliver’s time on the island. We know Moira knew the boat would capsize, but did she know that the would be stuck on that island? Was that Moira’s plan all along that Sarah and Oliver would train to come back to Starling City and change it?

One thing we can’t understand is Laurel. What is she doing? She went from drowning her sorrows in alcohol to prosecuting Oliver’s mother. She could do more to help Moira than just get her out of the death penalty. What happened to the sweet Laurel that wanting to save everyone? Did she too die with Tommy in that building?

Since Sarah came “back from the dead”, does that mean that Oliver’s island friends Slade and Shadow will also come back? What broke up the island trio? Was it just the attacks that later found Ollie on a boat being tortured by Sarah?

Steven McQueen Leaving TVD for Arrow?

Published

Is Steven McQueen leaving The Vampire Diaries?! Maybe. Possibly. Actually, probably not, so no one panic! 

Steven McQueen, who plays Jeremy Gilbert on the hit CW show, has been campaigning to play Nightwing on Arrow, another CW drama.

And the picture on his Instagram with Stephen Amell, proves that his wishes might just come true…. eventually. At least he’s talking to the right people!

The two were hanging out and supporting hockey’s L.A Kings for the NHL finals. The photo does however include #nightwing in the caption, which makes it clear that McQeen is not giving up on his dreams anytime soon!

Nightwing is a DC comics character who is a later incarnation of Batman’s sidekick Robin. As of right now, Nightwing hasn’t even been introduced on Arrow mainly because there hasn’t been room for him on the show’s complicated storyline. No word on whether the producer plan to introduce him in season 3 either. Maybe this is already a done casting and McQueen is subtly trying to give us all a hint?

Or maybe he would be better trying his efforts at the new Fox show, Gotham, which focuses on a time before Batman existed, although the producers have said the show is set so far in the past, Nightwing might have not even existed yet.

What are your thoughts?

Arrow: The Promise (02 x 15)

Published

on


The PromiseWe come back into Arrow right where we left off last week. Slade is in Oliver’s house and he’s getting pretty friendly with Moira Queen. Turns out that he’s now making donations to Moira’s mayoral campaign. Well played, Slade Wilson, well played. Slade even digs the knife in deeper when he suggested opening a bottle of rum and having a drink toward “friendship”.

Normally I’m not a big fan of the flashbacks as you’ve learned from my reviews of Season One, but this episodes flashbacks were actually crucialto the storyline. Oliver and Slade were brothers on the island. Slade taught Oliver everything he knew, especially when it came to the bow and arrow. Which puts in perspective how dangerous Slade actually is.

The PromiseWhile trying to take over the cargo ship, Oliver allowed for himself to be caught by Ivo and his men and thrown into a cell. Ivo, not being agentle man, puts Ollie in his torture chair. After realizing that Oliver won’t give up the coordinates of his friends easily, he injects him with a truth serum. The location of Slade and Sara flows easily from his lips the moment the serum goes through his system. No, Ollie, No!! But wait, another flashback, Sara created a serum that would fight off the truth serum and give Oliver a clear head. He gave Ivo the wrong information and now Sara and Slade can come take over the ignorant ship. After a long fight, Ivo lets it slip that Oliver is the reason that Shado is dead, that Ollie chose Sara over Shado. The anger that flashes in Slade’s eyes is mystifying. His “brother” betrayed him and is the reason the woman that he loves is dead. Slade turns on Oliver and Ivo escapes. More truth starts coming out when Slade reveals that he kept the Mirakura. He makes Oliver a promise that he’s not going to end his life until he has known complete and utter despair.

Back in Starling City we find Roy training with Sara, Diggle and Felicity. He looks pretty hopeless. When Oliver alerts them that Slade is in his house, they all devise a plan. Diggle sets up outside the mansion to take a shot at Slade as he leaves, Roy heads into the house to get Thea and Moira out of the way just in case anything goes wrong, and Sara is just ready to fight. Everyone is there except for Felicity.

Just before Slade leaves, he tells Oliver that he made a promise a while back, and he’s now here to fulfill it. Diggles goes to take his shot and someone comes behind him and knocks him out. What?!! Slade gets away free.

Moira takes Slade’s side when Oliver goes back in to talk to his mother. She can’t overlook the way he was treating her benefactor and if that’s the way he’s going to act, maybe he shouldn’t live with them anymore. Bold move, Moira. Especially since a few months ago, you tried leveling the city.

The last scene shows Slade watching several video screens. His trip to the house wasn’t for nothing. The tour Moira gave him provided plenty of time to plant cameras throughout the mansion.

Slade is set on making Oliver pay, but who will be caught in the crossfire? And who knocked out Diggle? Could it be Felicity? What do you think? Tweet @brittanydebaltz and keep the conversation going.
