I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Arrow, ‘The Huntress Returns’.
Helena returns to Starling City to kill her father after she learns that he plans to make a deal with the F.B.I. for a pardon on his sentence and witness protection. Helena asks Oliver for help, but when he refuses she attacks Tommy to force his assistance. The pair go after a set of armored trucks, but Helena is captured by the police when it is revealed to have been a trap.
Helena tries to reveal Oliver’s identity to the police for clemency while teasing them, but she sees they do not believe her so she does not insist. Oliver breaks her out of police custody to protect his secret and demands that she leave Starling City. Instead, Helena forces Felicity to find her father’s location. Oliver discovers the truth and manages to stop Helena from killing her father, but McKenna is injured when she arrives at the scene and is shot by Helena. McKenna reveals to Oliver that she plans to move to Coast City for her rehab, effectively ending their relationship.
Meanwhile, Tommy struggles with his knowledge of Oliver’s secret, which in turn affects his relationship with Laurel. Dinah presents her evidence of Sarah’s existence to her ex-husband and Laurel, to mixed response. In a flashback to the island, Oliver and Slade steal a computer chip from Fyers and attempt to leverage it as a means to get off the island. Finally, Thea tries to get Roy a job with Oliver, succeeds, but he doesn’t show. When she visits to see why, he said he doesn’t want her charity. On the way home she’s attacked by 2 thugs, but Roy expertly takes them out, but gets stabbed in the process. Theo takes him to a doctor, and the 2 kiss.
It was a great episode that brought back an interesting character, ended a relationship, and maybe formed a new one. It’s great to have Colton Haynes in the show, and I’m looking forward to more next week.
Thanks for reading.
