    Season 5 Episode 23 - "Lian Yu" - May 24, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    Oliver recruits Slade, who no longer hates him due to the Mirakuru completely out of his system. Harkness is revealed to be allegiant to Chase. Oliver's party frees Felicity, Thea, Curtis and Samantha, locking Evelyn. Oliver tasks Malcolm to take Felicity's party to Chase's plane in order to escape Lian Yu. Before separating, Felicity kisses Oliver. His party manages to free John, Rene, Dinah and Quentin, who knocks Black Siren unconscious while Nyssa defeats Talia. Meanwhile, Thea sets foot on a landmine. Malcolm quickly takes her place and tells the others to escape, using the mine to seemingly kill himself and Harkness when he arrives. Felicity's party reaches the plane, but learns that the whole island is rigged with C4, which will explode upon Chase's death. Oliver tasks John to lead the others to Felicity's party and escape while the former captures Chase on a boat and frees William, who has learned his relation to Oliver and discovers that his father is the Green Arrow. The plane is revealed to have been sabotaged by Chase. Oliver tells the others to run to a ship on the eastern shore. Chase kills himself, with the island completely exploding, and the others' fates unknown as Oliver and William watch in horror despite being with each other. In flashbacks, Oliver kills Kovar and his men, reaching the boat in time and calling Moira.
    The finale is done. In one sense it was good and in another I felt the season spent WAAAAAY too much time on Adrian Chase and Ollie agonizing about his father and feeling guilty. Thankfully Slade had some common sense stuff to say in regards to Ollie having Survivor's Guilt and having to forgive himself.

    Do I think Malcolm is dead? No. I would not be surprised if he pulled Boomerang onto the land-mine as it exploded after all Malcolm Merlyn is not called the Magician for nothing.

    Considering how big the island of Lian Yu is it would have taken a year or two to completely cover it in C4 explosives. Just saying and it would have cost millions and probably put them on several agencies radar.

    Season 6 Episode 1 - "Fallout" - October 12, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    In flashbacks, Slade heads to the A.R.G.U.S. ship alone while the others take refuge in the plane. Samantha runs off to find William, with Thea following her. John's right pectoral muscles are injured while rescuing Felicity. Oliver finds Thea in critical condition, and a dying Samantha asks him to look after William. Dinah and Quentin are attacked by Laurel, whom he shoots. She is later saved by an unknown man. In the present, Thea is still comatose and William blames Oliver for Samantha's death. Laurel and her mercenary team attack the SCPD station. During another confrontation, John accidentally wounds Rene due to his injury. Determining Laurel will next attack City Hall, Team Arrow sets a trap. However, Laurel's gang attacks the hideout instead, but are driven off by Team Arrow. Quentin's reluctance to harm Laurel further allows her to escape. Oliver arranges another hearing for Rene to reclaim his daughter. Curtis discovers that Laurel stole a prototype T-sphere. Slade tells Oliver that he is traveling to Calgary to find his son, advising him to choose between vigilantism and William. Oliver and William reconcile slightly, even as pictures of Oliver wearing the Green Arrow suit leak to the media.
    Actually it was a good episode, the only incredibly stupid thing I saw was Samantha (William's mother, Ollie's old girlfriend) run off into the woods, just as they were found out the entire island had been wired to blow up and as they ran toward the plane seeking shelter. Seriously, safe yourself then look for your kid, you are not the Flash and cannot find anyone on the island in the 2 seconds you had. Not only did Samantha kill herself she managed to take Thea with her. Both incredibly stupid. Not sad thinking Thea dead except for Ollie brooding and feeling guilty about it. But now we know Thea is alive and Ollie is feeling guilty and brooding about it.

    Slade alive and not if not best bud at least on friendly terms with Ollie.

    I luv it how just by surviving and being the good guy folks blame you for everything. So I suppose we sheeple should just roll over and let the bad guys stomp all over us and take everything we have and work for because if we stand up to them all the good guys will then blame all the bad that happens in their lives on us. Sheesh!

    Season 6 Episode 2 "Tribute" - October 19, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    Oliver publicly denies being the Green Arrow, facing an investigation by FBI agent Samanda Watson along with William's concerns of losing him. Anatoli and his men kidnap a group of Markovian delegates, demanding ransom. Believing Anatoli leaked the photo, Felicity and Curtis work on discrediting it while tracking the hostages, three of whom Team Arrow saves while Anatoli escapes with one. Anatoli tells Oliver that he needs to convince the Bratva that the former is not weak and is no longer friends with Oliver, injecting the hostage with a toxin which will kill him soon. Detecting the toxin and acquiring the antidote, Oliver injects it to the hostage, whom Anatoli kills anyway. He escapes after telling Oliver that he did not leak the photo, for which the media acquires evidence from an "anonymous source" that is fake. However, Watson tells Oliver that she will continue investigating him. As John prepares to tell Oliver about his degenerative nerve damage, the latter convinces him to wear the Green Arrow mantle, deciding to choose William over vigilantism.
    Interesting John is now the Green Arrow.

    Felicity and Curtis, business partners. I did like in the previous episode they touched upon the issue of earning a living and being a superhero/vigilante. Oliver's family is rich. John's wife works and is the Director of ARGUS, Rene works for the Mayor as does Quentin, and Dinah is a police detective. Curtis is newly divorced and Felicity's severance package from Palmer Tech is probably gone.

    Season 6 Episode 3 "Next of Kin" - October 26, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    Team Arrow arrests Faust, with John refusing to shoot arrows. The City Council begins drafting a tighter anti-vigilante bill. Telling Dinah that he has overcome his tremors, John is revealed to have leadership problems when rogue CIA operatives begin hunting down a former member in order to silence him. Rene asks Oliver to return to the team. The latter has Felicity help William with his mathematics test while convincing John of his competence. Team Arrow tracks down a rogue group of mercenaries led by Onyx Adams to a hotel and engages them, defeating them all and saving the civilians from a biological weapon. With no way to stop the bill, Oliver converts it to a city-wide referendum. Watson begins suspecting John, who receives an arrow-firing crossbow invented by Felicity and Curtis. Oliver resumes his relationship with her while John is revealed to be injecting drugs to control his tremors.
    Continued build up to the new team dynamics, worried a bit for John with his tremors and now revealed drug use.

    Scenes between Felicity and Oliver are going well, intimate without the sex.

    Like the scenes of Dinah training, she can whip a mean stick. Also like her interaction with John, one mature warrior to another.

    Season 6 Episode 4 "Reversal" - November 2, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    Laurel begins killing seemingly unimportant individuals while Felicity is approached by Alena, who tells her that Cayden James is planning something with hundreds of millions of casualties worldwide. They meet black market dealer "Amnesiac" to buy a "ghost drive". Feeling concerned, Oliver intervenes and attacks the thugs, angering Felicity, who steals the drive. Team Arrow tracks down Laurel to Felicity's apartment, with Laurel revealed to be working for James, who tasks his men to kill Felicity and Alena, who is critically shot during the rescue by Team Arrow. Felicity learns that James has stolen the victims' fingerprints, necessary to enter the International Domain Name Directory (IDND), the global internet infrastructure. Believing that James intends to destroy the internet, Team Arrow attacks his party at the IDND, where Felicity manages to breach through the firewall to stop James' apparent attack. She adds Alena for her startup, calling it Helix and intending to mass produce her spinal implant. James is revealed to have intentionally lured Felicity into breaking the firewall so that he can have secret access and cover his tracks. He provides Laurel with a device to stop tracking by Curtis. Slade calls Oliver and asks his help.
    Luv'ed the role reversal between Felicity and Oliver, also nice to see the episode a bit more team centric and not so much Oliver.

    Poor Felicity everyone keeps using her.

    Overall good episode.

    Season 6 Episode 5 "Deathstroke Returns" - November 9, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    Slade asks Oliver to help him find his son, who's being held in jail. The two meet up with an old acquaintance of Slade, who provides them with the information they need. When they get to the prison, Slade instructs Oliver to find his son, Joe, then get him out of there, as he knows Joe will not want to see him, despite Oliver's objections. Slade engages the security, known as the Jackals, in combat, where he discovers his acquaintance is actually a member of them. When Slade demands they release Joe, he reveals it's not that easy as their boss is Joe himself. Dinah saves a politician from a sniper attack by Vigilante, as the politician supports the Anti-vigilante bill. Dinah later saves her again, and unleashes her Canary Cry on Vigilante who removes his mask, revealing he is actually Dinah's old partner Vincent Sobel, thought long dead. He later attempts another assassination attempt at a TV interview, but is once again met by Dinah and shot in the head by an officer. Vincent reveals the Particle Accelerator changed him as well, and claims he didn't tell Dinah he was alive, as he believes their work as cops had become ineffective. Dinah allows him to flee.
    Always luv to see Manu Bennett aka Deathstroke aka Slade Wilson. Liked seeing him work with Ollie. Nice balance with the Slade and son flashbacks and with Ollie and his son.

    FBI lady is interviewing/interrogating all of Ollie's circle, and Curtis is jealous because he has not been interviewed.

    Season 6 Episode 6 "Promises Kept" - November 16, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    Slade and Oliver continue to try and persuade Joe to leave with them, but Joe refuses, claiming that he had seen his father kill someone before he had been influenced by Mirakuru. Slade tries to explain that it was a paid hit, but Joe refuses to forgive him, stating that learning who his father truly was led him down this path. Joe and Slade end up fighting until Oliver steps in, after which Joe escapes but not before revealing the existence of his brother Grant. Slade tells Oliver he will continue to try and find both of his sons, but advises Oliver that he go back to his, not wanting Oliver to make the same mistakes he made. Meanwhile, Team Arrow eventually finds out about John's tremors, leading John to apologize to everyone. Curtis offers to help John, the same way he helped Felicity when she was injured. John asks to have the night to think it over.
    Always nice to see Manu Bennett and to see how he portrays Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke and to see how the showrunners write this character. I do wish that the DC Universe would have started on The CW as they are doing a great job of expanding characters, adding depth to what some may consider 2nd and 3rd Tier character and layers to their stories. Nice to see Oliver not central to the story and to see how John Diggle is handling being the Arrow.

    Interesting twist finding out Slade had another son named Grant. Is Grant the one Joe killed? That was confusing.

    Season 6 Episode 7 "Thanksgiving" - November 23, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    Oliver, Felicity, William and Quentin organize a Thanksgiving food drive to raise money for a new SCPD Precinct. Oliver is promptly arrested by FBI Agent Watson under charges of vigilantism for being the Green Arrow. James and Black Siren subsequently break out of prison, intent on causing chaos, since the Green Arrow is caught. Thankfully, Oliver's trial is delayed. When John gets injured in the field, Oliver suits up as the Green Arrow once again, with Team Arrow looking to stop a bomb planted by James and Black Siren at the stadium during a concert. They subsequently discover the bomb is fake and that the cops guarding the stadium aren't cops, whom are swiftly taken out by Dinah, Curtis and Rene, but James and Black Siren escape. Oliver visits John in hospital and claims he will wear the hood until John has recovered, whereupon he can reclaim it. Thea wakes from her coma and reunites with Oliver, Felicity, John and William.
    Cayden James and Black Siren are not in prison so I don't know what episode this person was watching. At Starling Stadium Cayden James arranged a talk with Oliver/Green Arrow and informed Arrow that they reason James is doing all of these is for revenge, that Oliver/Green Arrow hurt/murdered/killed Cayden James's son. The team knows that Cayden's son never lived with him and is missing.

    The entire scheme at the stadium was to get video of vigilantes attacking police, (Team Arrow fighting with Cayden's hoods dressed to look like police) and therefor change citizens minds and vote for the anti vigilante referendum.

    Diggle tells Oliver about being in the alternative universe from last year's Dominator crossover and how Dig was the Green Arrow and that is was something he dreamed of doing.

    Wonder if Speedy will be joining the team?

    Season 6 Episode 8 "Crisis on Earth-X, Part 2" - November 27, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_6_.282017.29

    In S.T.A.R. Labs, a captured interdimensional villain from Earth-X, Prometheus-X, is revealed to be a parallel universe doppelgänger of Tommy Merlyn. After he cruelly taunts Oliver over his attachment to Tommy, Prometheus-X commits suicide out of loyalty to Earth-X's Nazi regime. Prometheus-X’s partners, Dark Arrow (Oliver’s doppelgänger), Overgirl (Kara Danvers’ doppelgänger), and Eobard Thawne steal a sublight generator, the Prism, from research company Dayton Optical Systems; Oliver, Barry, Kara, and the others believe that Dark Arrow seeks to build a neutron bomb with it to aid his conquest on Earth-1. After a series of battles, most of the heroes including Team Arrow are in captivity at S.T.A.R. Labs after the Nazi forces infiltrate it, and Oliver, Barry and his allies are transported to Earth-X's concentration camp, but Kara is moved to S.T.A.R. Labs. Oliver is determined to kill Dark Arrow in retaliation after his capture. The villains reveal that Overgirl is dying and Dark Arrow plans to use the Prism, charged by S.T.A.R. Labs' particle accelerator, to produce artificial red sunlight that would weaken both Kara and Overgirl's respective invulnerability, allowing a heart transplant for Overgirl but killing Kara in the process.

    This episode continues a crossover event that begins on Supergirl season 3 episode 8, and concludes on The Flash season 4 episode 8 and Legends of Tomorrow season 3 episode 8.
    Best quote was after Flash and Supergirl arrive Dayton Optical and they sorta have to wait for Oliver and he comments on them remembering that he doesn't have super speed.

    Some really good moments between various characters: Alex's continued awkwardness around Sara and to their one night stand. Jax telling Grey?Professor Stein that he is like a father to him. Felicity and Iris sharing how they handle loving and being loved by a hero. Felicity and Oliver still confused why Felicity won't marry him.

    Kara is captured.

    The main group is transferred to Earth X.

    Rory, Caitlin, Black Canary, Mr. Terrific, Wilddog, Harrison Well, and Cisco incarcerated at Star Labs.

    Felicity and Iris hiding from the nazi's at Star Labs.

    What's next????

    Season 6 Episode 9 "Irreconcilable Differences" - December 7, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...eason_6_(2017)

    Oliver and Felicity celebrate their wedding with everyone. The case against Oliver intensifies when Quentin learns a Team Arrow member is testifying against him, causing Oliver to have the team tracked. Quentin is kidnapped by Black Siren and James. Dinah is discovered to be meeting with Vincent, and tensions grow in the team until Rene admits he is the one testifying against Oliver. He explains Watson cornered him with evidence that he is Wild Dog, and if he didn't testify, he would never be able to see his daughter again. Oliver briefly evicts Rene from the team, but the entire team puts aside any differences to rescue Quentin, whom Black Siren willingly allows to escape once they are outside. Oliver permanently ousts Rene for abandoning the primary mission to go looking for Lance on his own, violating Oliver's trust again. Rene is later reunited with his daughter, while Dinah and Curtis leave Team Arrow, unable to trust Oliver. Through a hidden camera, Oliver, John and Felicity are shown being monitored by the cabal of James, Black Siren, Anatoli, Vincent and Ricardo Diaz.
    Luv'ed the wedding reception poor Curtis, that was uncomfortable and Rene's totally ironic speech.

    There has always been a running theme of trust in this show and it shows Oliver has grown when he was able to listen to Felicity about forgiving Rene considering FBI Special Agent Watson (wonder where Holmes is?) was blackmailing him with his own child.

    I am surprised that no one thought to sweep the Arrow Bunker for cameras, bugs etc ... considering how many times the bad guys have broken into it. Duh!

    There was another person in the bad guy line up standing next to Diaz in the last scene that I didn't recognize.

    This was the Mid season finale, new episodes will be back January 18, 2017
