The Devil's Greatest Trick

The latest chapter of Arrow is all about Cayden James as Michael Emerson's wicked hacker comes full circle. But Arrow Season 6 Episode 13 sets up what will be the definitive arc for the remainder of Arrow Season 6. If Arrow wanted to, this could have been a season finale. Because that is exactly what "The Devil's Greatest Trick" felt like. While "The Devil's Greatest Trick" does have a lot of strengths, it came with some bad points. One of them being the possible fall... more

Oliver is quite busy throughout, saving the city, his friends, his son a... more

'Arrow' Is Looking for Redemption in All the Wrong Places

Unpopular opinion: Black Siren does not need, nor deserve, redemption. In fact, Arrow's attempts to force morality upon the Earth-2 villain is making poor Quentin Lance look more than a little unhinged. The theme of season 6 is family, and with that in mind, it's no surprise Arrow writers have provided viewers with a grieving father willing enough to suspend disbelief if it means reconnecting with his eldest daughter. We can't even begin to imagine the pain of losing a child, ... more
