Normally I do not dwell on the flash back it seems like a filler to me. Tonight Reiter finally found what he was looking for as Oliver and Taiana led him as his army through that cave. The idol in the cave is the same idol that Damien Darhk draw his power from. Back in episode 15 titled Taken, it was Vixen power that destroy the idol that got Damien Darhk arrested thus freeing William from his captured. The main story plot is straight forward as the preview clip. A jilted Cupid escaped ARGUS, returning to Star City picking up high-profile wedding couples to slaughter. That eventually led to an awkward faux wedding between Felicity and Oliver setting themselves up as the bait. The whole plot is playing into the drama of the two no longer a couple. At the end of the show Felicity double down by leaving team Arrow all together.
In other development the trial of Damien Darhk was in jeopardy until Captain Lance decided to incriminate himself and testify against Darhk. For now the judge believe there’s enough implication to deny bail and kept him in custody until a trial is set. Knowing Darhk , he won’t be staying in jail for long. When he was back in jail, we saw him opening his mouth with an insignia ring inside that he put it on his finger. Something tells me it’s a device that will set him free. So what’s your take on tonight’s episode? Why did Oliver has no memory of the idol when he was confronting Damien Darhk back in episode 15th?
Next week episode 17th titled Beacon Of Hope, Brie Larvan aka Bug-Eyed Bandit escaped from jailed show up at Palmer Tech and threaten to kill everyone unless she gets that bio chip that was implanted on Felicity’s spine. When Oliver realize, Felicity, Thea, Donna are trapped in Palmer Tech along with everyone else, he reach out to a surprising ally to help team Arrow to save the day. Who could it be?
