Arrow-Season-4-Costume

Green Arrow is starting a new team; with intellectual Curtis, Street-smart Wild Dog, and a sixteen-year-old minor who isn’t even old enough to vote. Why are Oliver and Felicity okay with this? Laurel just died, so the gravitas of being a vigilante can’t be ignored. Talk about your irresponsible adults. Hey Ollie and Felicity, shouldn’t she be in High School? What kind of permission-slip covers this? Well, the new team falls apart, at first, because Oliver doesn’t trust or respect them enough to tell them who he really is. Plus, he keeps beating them up while calling it training.   But Felicity is there to point all of this out, so by episode’s end, he reveals his identity to the team and they all re-enlist in his underage army.

Tobias Church isn’t the only bad guy Oliver has to deal with this episode. There’s a dude wrapped in ancient mystic rags, and he’s attacking people around town. And the rags he’s wrapped in come to life, like appendages or tentacles. Yeah, that’s weird. But Green Arrow soon discovers that the Ragman is actually a vigilante himself. So he recruits him. Turns out, the young man was seeking vengeance for the residents of Havenrock. That’s the small town that Damien Darhk nuked last season. He’s the only survivor. His Father wrapped him in the mystic rags because he knew they would protect him from the radioactive firestorm. And the rags did protect him. And now the rags help him fight crime. Remember, this is a comic book based show. And in DC Comics, Ragman is Rory Regan, one of the few, proud, Jewish superheroes.

Elsewhere in the world, Diggle is training a rookie of his own. Private Collin is a raw young soldier, fresh out of boot camp. And he’s assigned to be a part of Sargent Diggle’s next mission. Collin is afraid, of course, but Diggle helps him overcome his fear. Diggle’s good at that. The mission is to recon a stolen nuclear weapon. And Diggle is just the man for the job, coming through, even when it appears that the bad guys knew he was on his way. But beating the bad guys and securing the nuclear weapon is the easy part of the assignment. Because what Diggle doesn’t know is that his superior officers sold him out, so that they can steal the weapon and sell it on the black market.  And when Diggle surrenders the weapon to them, as he’s supposed to. They take Diggle’s gun and uses it to kill private Collin. Their plan is to frame Diggle for everything! STAY TUNED!!!

LAST WORDS: Quinton Lance is still a hard drinking alcoholic. Remember when Laurel was an alcoholic? Well, it’s kind of the same thing. So to inspire Lance to sober up and fly right, Thea makes him Deputy Mayor. Yikes! Let’s just hope some mandatory AA Meetings are written into his job description…

And there’s a Russian flashback story, and that’s all I’m saying about that…

Felicity’s new boyfriend is a cop…

Also, the new Dark Archer in town threatens to kill Church, if he kills Green Arrow. The Dark Archer wants to do the deed himself. And he’s wearing a mask, so we still don’t know who it is yet. Could it be Malcolm Merlin? …

And least we forget, Felicity diverted that nuclear missile to the small town of Havenrock, to save a major city with a much bigger population. I wonder how she’s dealing with that. And how Ragman will feel about her if he ever finds out. Which I’m guessing he will.
