When Prometheus ups his killing spree, Oliver searches for connections between the Victims. Felicity and Curtis discover the victims have a mysterious Link to Oliver’s past and this new secret could upend his new team. Meanwhile, Thea has a Heart-To-Heart with Lance, and Felicity considers telling Malone the truth about her work.
With the 6th episode of the season, Prometheus has now taken center stage. With a need to get the attention of Green Arrow and his team, Prometheus begins to attack random individuals that give clues to Oliver about his past exploits as the Hood. This new information begins to drive a wedge between the new recruits and the old team. Everything about this story has been great, I really love how they are slowly brining along Prometheus. We don’t need the big reveal right now and the writers seem to know that, playing the guessing game and even having the end of the episode point toward Lance just make this story that much greater. The only criticism I really have is the continuing issues with the new recruits, I am and I have seen many fans complain about this, the recruits just need to stop complaining already and start working as a team.
Speaking about Quentin Lance, the under used character finally had a little intrigue attached to him this episode with the tie to prometheus. It’s really the only downside to the entire season thus far, the under use of Paul Blackthorne who still doesn’t have much of a story other than the drinking and this growing father-daughter type bond with Thea. Hopefully the second half of the season see his character begin to be used more to his potential.
Finally lets talk about Felicity, the darling of the CW DC Universe just 2 years ago, the same character which took a major fall in the eyes of most fans seems to be back on track. With that being said, I am starting to get tired of all the Negative comments relating to her character. I was just as frustrated with her through most of the last two season, but the character has really gone back to her origins. And I for one am really enjoying it. As for her relationship with Malone, I am not sure how this will play into the remainder of the season. It seems like there is a continuing tease that she will go back to Oliver, I am more interested in how Malone fits in going forward.
