Oliver Faces the Ghosts of His Past ... Literally

Arrow season 6 opened with (most of) Oliver's friends and family surviving a nearly impossible explosion. Since that moment though, Arrow has taken pains (some natural, some rather forced) to separate Oliver from everyone he knows and loves. So how does feeling isolated and betrayed impact a man with a series of mental problems, PTSD and impulse control? Not very well ... at all. The stress of Oliver's current situation comes crashing down around him in this episode, "Fundamentals." Thankfully, Oliver... more



'Arrow': Can Oliver and Diggle's Friendship Be Fixed After Their Latest Fight?

Oliver and Diggle have had their fights before on Arrow -- John has even left the team, and their problems haven't always been fixed in one episode -- but this time it's different.

The big surprise moment involving Cayden James was messy, and that has extended to his plans for Star City and Oliver Queen and the overall impression of him.   That looks to be changing going into "Th... more

A Solo Oliver Queen Is Exactly What 'Arrow' Needs Right Now

And then there was one. Last week we claimed Adrien Chase (Josh Segarra) had won a posthumous victory over the Green Arrow. Little did we know, our hero's subconscious agreed. Diggle (David Ramsey) reminded Oliver (Stephen Amell) that he leaves a trail of bodies wherever he goes, and those words cut deeper than any knife. They plagued Oliver's Vertigo-induced hallucinations during "Fundamentals", and it led him to one inevitable conclusion -- it's time to go back to basics. When Oliver arrived in Star City six years ago, he wa... more

    Chase has a 20-shot revolver? Color me impressed! Come on, guys. I know this show is a fantasy but could we have a wee bit of realism here?
