AR­ROW

Wed­nes­day, 8.30pm, Nine THIS comic book-in­spired ac­tion se­ries of­fers a more pol­ished episode this week that will leave fans of the show im­pressed, and may even help it earn a few more fol­low­ers.

It sees Oliver ar­rested for mur­der and de­mand­ing that Lau­rel rep­re­sent him in court.

This leaves Lau­rel and her fa­ther at log­ger­heads.

In this episode, the vil­lain Death­stroke is also in­tro­duced to the fold (not count­ing the cameo of his mask in the pilot) dur­ing one of Oliver’s flash­backs.

Death­stroke’s cos­tume is a lit­tle am­a­teur­ish, but this is a great step for­ward in terms of in­te­grat­ing the full scope of the DC Uni­verse into this show. His ar­rival also leads to one of the best fight scenes in the se­ries so far, with Death­stroke tak­ing on Yao Fei in a per­fectly chore­ographed and clev­erly edited se­ries of punches, slices and jabs.

On top of this there’s the rift be­tween Moira and Wal­ter and the re­newed ro­mance be­tween Ol­lie and Lau­rel, which all make for a very mem­o­rable and event­ful in­stal­ment.

The corny lines seem to have been cut down. This was pos­si­bly a re­sult of hav­ing two new writ­ers, Wendy Mer­i­cle and Ben Sokolowski, in charge, and we hope for the show’s sake they stay on.
