Arrow Season 5, Episode 5
Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Paul Blackthorne, Rick Gonzalez, Joe Dinicoi, Madison McLaughlin, Wil Traval, Carly Pope
When Tobias Church captures and tortures one of Oliver’s new recruits, Oliver must turn to an old friend, Christopher Chance AKA The Human Target, for help. Meanwhile, Felicity’s worlds collide when Detective Malone joins the ACU
With Wild Dog captured and being tortured, Oliver and team go to the rescue, once recovered, Oliver learns that Rene couldn’t hold out any longer and told Church who the Green Arrow really is. The remaining of the episode sees Rene working with Diggle in order to learn more and obviously give that big brother advice that can only come from Diggle.
With Oliver’s life now on the line as Mayor, its up to him and the team to put in place a plan to stop Church. This is were we are finally introduced to Christopher Chance, the Human Target. We learn that these two also met before in Russia through the flashbacks.
After Church is captured, we see what happens when someone disobeyed Prometheus, as the last scene of the episode shows prometheus attacking the police transport and finally killing Church. This was a fast end to church but makes sense as we are reaching the final weeks of the first half of the season. Depending on how many more episode there are, we should we should start getting more clues to who is under the mask.
The 5th episode of the season played perfectly, it was the type of build to the death of Church which was deserved. Do I wish there was more time, yes. But considering where we are in the season and with the big crossover between shows happening soon, it makes sense to end so soon.
