Arrow Review: Season 4 Episode 15 "Taken"

Arrow Season 4 Episode 15

Oliver calls in his old friend for help in fighting Darhk, while Thea has a Heart to Heart talk with Malcolm.

The episode starts with Darhk informing Oliver that he has his son William, his demand for Williams return are to drop out of the Mayor race and to back his wife.

With Oliver dealing with a kidnapped son and Felicity now knowing his secrets he now needs some additional help. He calls on a friend with whom he had an Animated past with….Vixen.

With Vixen now in the fold, she informs the team that like her, Darhk must have a object which is providing him with his magical power. Team come up with a plan to save William and to take away the Damian powers. 

The episode come to an end with the team being able to destroy the token which provide the powers, William was saved and Felicity being able to walk again and giving the ring back to Oliver.

Final Thoughts.
I just love Crossovers, obviously this one is a little more obscured do to the fact its with the Animated Web Series Vixen. It non the less was just as great as most we have seen thus far. Megalyn Echilunwoke was wonderful as Mari McCabe/Vixen. Great addition to the DC television Universe. 

The episode it self provided a lot of great twists for the remainder of the season, with Darhk missing his powers its now interesting to see how he will rage havoc on Team Arrow. The episode also muddy what had seemed to be an obvious answer to who was in the grave a couple of months from now. With William and his mother safe and far away, these two obviously fall off the list. This leave the possibilities down to only Diggle, Thea or Captain Lance. With the show runners annoucing the possibility of Diggle getting a new helmet. My last two guesses would have to be Lance or Thea.

The return of Evil Malcolm might be the best thing this season has brought us, but the return of the up and down relationship between Felicity and Oliver will definitely cast a shadow over what has become an awesome season thus far.

I give this episode two thumbs up. Let us know what your thoughts of the episode were and leave your comments below.

  1. As a parent, Olivers video to his son was heart wrenching. The end with felicity put so much on the table with her exit from the room like did she know she was gonna do that? Was it a spontaneous thing that really just happened? While I still think this is one of the best shows on network TV, I felt like this episode felt kinda rushed at points, like as Malcolm said, there's a bigger picture we still haven't been hinted at. Like theres this huge setup happening that's incorporating more than we have any clue to at this point. But then again, I believe conspiracy theories
