Team Arrow soldiers on despite the rift.
A "business man" who is the last of the Bertinelli syndicate is being forced out by the villain of the season. He asks for a ship to be named Huntress, after his cousin.
Curtis latest attempt to insert a chip into Diggle doesn't help his arm but it causes signal interference with a bug that was planted in the Arrow Cave. They also make a Six Million Dollar reference
Bertinelli causes a minor crime to get Arrow's attention. He suggests that Arrow get a website or a spotlight with an image of an arrow in it.
Bertinelli tells Arrow of the attempts to muscle him out and threaten his daughter.
Dinah has a date with Vigilante
Thea returns as Chief of Staff for Mayor Oliver
Arrow attacks the enemy base on his own. It almost works but he gets surrounded by all of the enemy forces including Vigilante! Arrow is allowed to escape despite the protests of some of Cayden's forces
Oliver refuses to reform the team but will give the deserts the intel on Cayden James, Diggle and Felicity tell the others
Bertinelli attempts to flee town but Arrow intercepts and asks for his help against James.
Dinah confronts Vigilante, he knocks her out and escapes and also shows off his regeneration powers.
Curtis and Wild Dog talk about the Arrow cave being bugged and it seems James leaked info to the Feds to get Wild Dog to flip
They set a trap for james' forces and Bertinelli's, shoot out occurs and Arrow is taking them out when Vigilante appears. Diggle attempts to use some of what appears to be Curtis' spheres to help in the fight until they are taken out.
Cayden has Bertinelli killed.
Back at the Arrow cave we learn that Felicity has debugged the place.
Arrow is forced to realize that he needs to reform the team. However the three of them decide to form their own team instead.
Curtis shows Wild Dog and Dinah their new base, the former lair of Helix.
james is concerned that Dinah knows Vigilante works for him
Felicity installs a chip that Curtis modified into Diggle's arm.
His hand still trembled for a moment, then stabilized. Oliver tosses him a pistol which he easily catches and quickly chambers a round and aims it at the wall. Oliver comments they are now not as undermanned as they were.
All in all......yawn.
Just not feeling excitement.
Oh joy, another Batman reference......(sarcasm)
So the other three decide to form a team....why do I sense a short lived spin off series is coming?
The show has really lost it's way this season. Who am I supposed to be rooting for?
I really can't blame the newbies for leaving, they all got treated like s#it because they were the new guys.
That said, I wouldn't trust Wilddog as far as I could throw him. I don't feel that his betrayal was okay because he did it for his daughter.
But the heroes are far outgunned by the villains this year. I mean Caden James has a army of baddies and Oliver was going to go against them solo? It just doesn't seem at all realistic.
Oliver and the team should just give up and let Argus and the police handle it. It seems like ridiculous hubris for them to continue.
I mean Oliver is still under investigation. He has no business going out as the Green Arrow. Not to mention he promised his son.
It never bothered me when Oliver was leading a double life and lying to his mom and Thea. But for some reason it really bothers me that he is lying to his son. I guess the difference is that Thea and his mom didn't know the truth, while his son does.
