Ra's, the hooded street thug who is currently leading the League of Assassins, needs a new right hand man at his side since Katana (Tatsu) killed Maseo. While Oliver looks like Mini-Me at the moment, we have to vote he overthrows Ra's and tosses him aside.
Someone has happened upon Oliver in the dark and they're trying to take him out! Waddya wanna bet it's Ra's? In this installment, Oliver is going to wonder if he's strong enough to take on the position as head of the League and what it will do to Team Arrow. He's strong enough. Not sure about the team, though.
Oliver and Thea touch base before all of the schnizzle goes down in the city center. Does he have any idea she's going to suit up as Speedy? At this point, does she even have any idea? Can't wait to see it go down.
Here it is! The epicenter of the circle of trust. Somehow it doesn't look all that comfortable in there. If that's what it feels like on the inside, most of us would probably rather be on the outside looking in anyway!
Another show with a smiling Oliver and an over-the-top happy Felicity with Nyssa nearby sure seems to indicate the two loves who have been torn apart have had a chat solidifying their future. What are the odds, do you think?
Felicity looks incredibly happy at the conversation she's having with the man she loves. This is surprising given the close proximity of Oliver and his new wife. Perhaps they have spoken about what his marriage really means to him and how much he loves the woman he left behind.
This is a surprisingly gentle moment between Oliver and Nyssa. With a simple touch of their hands, it seems they have reached some sort of communication wherein they may be working together toward a common goal, at the very least.
It surely cannot be a coincidence that this pair of forlorn lovers is framed by the electric blue of fluorescent lighting as they must be about as blue as they can be given their strange and unfortunate circumstances.
Oliver and Felicity are together again, but this time he's married to another an on his way to becoming the leader of the League of Assassins. We can assume things are not the same as the last time they met.
Felicity: What's going on? Ray? Ray: Oliver Queen is the Arrow. Felicity: What? Ray: I have a 140 IQ and three PhDs, but it's pretty hard to insult my intelligence, but I'm pretty sure you just did. It all makes sense now. Your, ah, sudden disappearances, your apprehension of helping me with my mission. You've been working with the Arrow this whole time.
