Flash is solid, Gotham’s not bad, Constantine has its moments, but when it comes to the best DC has to offer in the television space, there’s no stopping the CW smash-hit, Arrow. Since hitting the ground running with the death of Sara Lance in the final scene of the season premiere, the latest bit of Oliver Queen’s adventure as Starling City’s masked vigilante, The Arrow, has been nothing but heart-stoppingly awesome. But, the best part? It shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, as made evident by the latest photos for this coming week’s episode featuring the introduction of Amy Gumenick as comic-book villain, Cupid.
Convinced The Arrow’s her one true love, Oliver must work to stop bow wielding serial killer Carrie Cutter, who’s on a one woman mission to get the attention of the masked vigilante. Perhaps no one told her The Arrow isn’t really into the whole killing thing anymore. Seriously, guys, when did email not become good enough? Is Starling City devoid of florists?
For real, this looks to be a nice one-off episode for a season that’s been all about serialization and non-stop burning of plot as of late. We spent what, two episodes with Roy struggling with the realization he may have killed Sara before spilling the beans to the entire team, Laurel included? If there’s one thing this show isn’t, it’s slow, and that’s good because speed’s the name of the game when battling the worst of the worst in the city of Starling.
Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
