Arrow’: ‘Human Target’ Review

Previous1 of 6

arrow-505-reviewArrow ended on a pretty big cliffhanger last week as Wild Dog was captured by Tobias Church who promised the new Arrow team member that he would give him hell. While Green Arrow does save him from Church, Rene confesses that he gave up Oliver’s secret to Church during the torturing.

After being saved by Lyla and Oliver last week, Diggle made his return to Team Arrow this week, while also keeping a low-profile. As he gets to know the new members a bit better, Diggle takes on a mentor role for Wild Dog. Meanwhile, Oliver tries to get to know Susan Williams a bit better and understand her problems with him. Susan agrees to Oliver’s deal to not throw him any more PR blasts for one month and let him prove that he can be the mayor that Star City needs.

Prometheus isn’t happy with what Church pulled with Wild Dog and tries to end him, but a mystery assassin, working for Church, protects him. Now that Church knows the Green Arrow’s identity, he sends the mystery assassin to go after Mayor Queen. However, Oliver is one step ahead which is where Christopher Chance a.k.a. the Human Target enters the episode as he helps fake Oliver’s death.

    Agreed. B- for me, but I’m super spoiled for Bamford directed episodes now. Ending Church’s reign came as a bit of a shock. I was expecting that story to last til mid-season. I guess the crossovers are too heavy for that this year or Chad Coleman’s schedule didn’t make it work. But he’s by far my favorite villain to have been on the show.

    I loved tonight’s ep, more than I did this week’s Flash (which wasn’t bad either, mind you).
    For me, this week’s DCTV rankings so far are as follows:
    1) Lucifer
    2) Supergirl
    3) Gotham
    4) Arrow
    5) Flash
    Legends comes on tomorrow, so not sure where that will place.

      Legends.. Tomorrow.. I see what you did there
