Arrow Season 4 Episode 13
“Sins of the Father”
Oliver receives an offer from Nyssa that is hard to refuse, Meanwhile Thea continues to battle the bloodlust Malcolm steps in to help his daughter, and Laurel has a Heart to Heart talk with Nyssa.
The episode starts with Nyssa offering the lotus to save Thea, however she wants Merlins control over the league. Oliver has to come up with a way to get the lotus without the death of Nyssa or Malcolm. The initial plan falls apart after Malcolm decides that he doesn’t want to make a deal. After multiple battles between the two factions of the league, Merlin faces off with Oliver and the end result is the loss of his hand.
Nyssa, after getting the ring from Merlin decides to disband the league. This action leads to Merlin promising Oliver he will suffer. The end of the episode show Merlin meeting with Darhk and giving him the identified of the person Oliver cares for the most….William his son.
With each passing season of Arrow, it seems that the creators find more ways to disband and kill off members of the DC Universe. First we saw the end of Deadshot, then the death of Amanda Waller, now the disbanding of the league of Assassins. At least we have The Flash, and his ability to bring these characters back to life.
Finally we get the evil Malcolm back, minus a hand. His deal with Damien Darhk seems to jump the story forward a lot and leaves us with some clues as to where the show will go. Oliver’s son will be the center point going forward, most likely driving a wedge between Oliver and Felicity. My guess is William will some how be involved with the grave scene. This will be a entertaining ride for sure.
How does the dismembering of Thea’s father ultimately effect the relationship between her and Oliver will have to be seen still, but at the very least she is now cured of the effects from the Lazarus Pitt.
The most interesting part of the episode has to be the weird ending to Felicity and her Father, it seems like a quick resolution with Felicity sending him to Prison. I am guessing there is much more to come.
I give this episode Two Thumbs Up, another solid episode. Let us know your thoughts and leave a comment below.
