Tonight: “Arrow” Season 7 Premiere On The CW Network (10/15/2018)

Though “Arrow” was the first of this group of DC Comics live-action superhero shows, it’s premiere comes after “The Flash”, “Black Lightning” and “Supergirl” which I found a little surprising. Anyway, the shows seventh season begins tonight and I’ve secured the dramatic poster along with a recap of the previous season doings and some casting. Let’s go.

Season 6 Recap: In season six, after an explosive battle on Lian Yu, Oliver must balance being a vigilante, the mayor, and a father to his son William. At the same time, new enemies emerge, initially led by hacker Cayden James, who puts together a team with drug dealer Ricardo Diaz, metahuman vigilante Vincent Sobel, Russian mobster Anatoli Knyazev, and Black Siren. As James loses control of his cabal, Ricardo Diaz comes to the fore, announcing to Green Arrow his scheme to take over Star City’s criminal underworld and control the city’s political infrastructure, all while Oliver must contend with his former teammates forming a rival team. As Diaz takes control of the city, Oliver is forced to recruit the aid of the FBI, in exchange for him publicly announcing his identity and going to federal prison. In the finale, Oliver is imprisoned in a supermax penitentiary. (c/o Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not finding myself enjoying “Arrow” as much as I used to but I did love the introduction of characters like Wild Dog, Ragman, and The Vigilante (despite their playing with the original canon on the character). The action remains solid but sometimes the story runs too long on a single arc and I am growing tired of that. Let’s see how Oliver gets himself out of prison and back to the green duds to protecting the city that seems to keep failing him again and again. This season I am most excited about the introduction of Batwoman who I believe will make her first appearance in this show and then carryover into the other connected crossover shows. What about you readers? Are you still watching or did you just try on a service like Netflix or the brand new DC Universe. Chime in down below in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
