Arrow didn’t make Laurel’s Season 5 return terribly difficult to figure out, and won’t keep you in suspense for Season 6, either. Not only is Katie Cassidy coming back for the final Season 5 episodes, but Laurel Lance will be back full-time in Season 6, singing her Black Siren-song.
On this week’s episode, Prometheus and Ollie both prove that torture is an effective interrogation technique, and Dolph Lundgren finally returns! “Kapiushon” was directed Kevin Tancharoen and written by Brian Sullivan and Emilio Aldrich.
Whether or not Arrow abandons its flashback device altogether after Season 5, the upcoming episodes will inevitably return Oliver Queen to the bearded castaway we first saw in the 2012 pilot. To wit, star Stephen Amell is now teasing the return of a familiar foe, albeit with a deathly familiar stroke.
On this week’s episode, Oliver learns the truth about Prometheus, Felicity is forced to do hacking that is somehow more illegal than normal, and Russian mobsters hang out at a hockey rink! “Checkmate” was directed Ken Shane and written by Beth Schwartz and Sarah Tarkoff.

It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where returning Arrow watcher Chris Haley and newcomer Emma Lawson dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
On this week’s episode, political intrigue abounds! Will Oliver be impeached from his position as Star City’s mayor? Will there be press conferences? Will politicians ask questions? Also, Vigilante and Prometheus are both back! “Fighting Fire with Fire” was directed Michael Schultz and written by Speed Weed and Ben Sokolowski.
This week, a bunch of villains from Team Arrow’s past bust out of jail, Susan Williams confronts Oliver about being the Green Arrow, and the cops learn who really killed Detective Malone. Oh, and Ollie’s mayoral career goes up in flames. “The Sin-Eater” was directed Mary Lambert from a script by Barbara Bloom and Jenny Lynn.
On this week’s episode, we learn the secret origin of Wild Dog! Also, gun violence erupts in City Hall as Ollie learns there are some problems he can’t fight as the Green Arrow. “Spectre of the Gun” was directed by Kristin Windell from a script by Marc Guggenheim.
On this week’s episode, Laurel, the formerly deceased former Black Canary, is back from the dead! But how?! “Who Are You” was directed by Gregory Smith from a script by Ben Sokolowski and Brian Ford Sullivan.
Last week, I wrote about "Manhunt on Land," an Aquaman story where he drove around in a pickup truck full of fish to track down a sea crook who had taken to land for the express purpose of avoiding being dragged back to jail by Aquaman. That in and of itself is a solid premise, but what really makes it interesting is that it was a strange little rarity of the Silver Age: It was actually a crossover with a Green Arrow story in the same issue.
Sadly, the second half doesn't have the immediate hook of a pickup truck that's also an aquarium, but it's definitely a story worth talking about --- not just because of the unusual crossover element, but because it has one of the most shocking endings I've ever read. And for the Silver Age, that's saying something.
