Arrow “Human Target” Recap and Review
We had a lot to enjoy on the CW front this week. A trailer for the big four-part crossover and the latest episode of Arrow.
A bloody and beaten Wild Dog is rescued early on in the episode, however whilst captured he revealed that Oliver was the Green Arrow. I’m not really sure why. From what Wild Dog overheard, Team Arrow know Church‘s masterplan. He wants to consolidate the drug trafficking going on. There was a nice mention of places such as Bludhaven in there. The problem is that Church needs Oliver dead to do this so he plans to kill him as mayor. Meanwhile Diggle tells Oliver that he knows a man with a specific set of skills that can help. No, it isn’t Liam Neeson, I was disappointed too. Plus, Oliver learns that Felicity has a new boyfriend.
Surprisingly, Oliver is killed by a man hired by Church. Probably about the fifth time he has died on the show. Unsurprisingly he isn’t really dead (the show is called Arrow after all) and it turns out the “Human Target” was pretending to be Oliver Queen. He can look and sound like anyone he wants to. This is to deceive Church into going ahead with his plan so they can stop him. Human Target also helped Oliver out in the flashbacks (hired by Anatoli) , after some of the Bratva turn on him. He also talks to pesky reporter, Susan, for Oliver. However she obtains information that Oliver was a part of the Bratva.
The climax of the episode is Team Arrow ruining Church’s meeting and capturing him. Even Diggle suited back up. Although whilst he is being escorted by police to prison, Prometheus attacks. He kills all of the policemen then Church because he tried to kill the Green Arrow. As mayor, Oliver reveals he had to fake his death to take down such a powerful criminal. It’s still weird to fake your own death.
I’ll start off with my favorite scene of the episode. When we saw how powerful Prometheus really is. Whilst we didn’t see it, the litter of bodies that he left in his path told the story. How scared Church was really added to it. It reminded me of when Zoom murdered the police officers on the Flash. With next week’s episode titled “So it begins”, this is the start of this rivalry. Season 1 did a bow-wielding villain very well so I’m sure this season will deliver. I hope that when we find out who Prometheus it isn’t Felicity’s boyfriend, that would not be a good reveal in my opinion. Fingers crossed for Tommy Merlyn.
Speaking of Felicity’s boyfriend, the “Olicity” scenes were my least favorite. Her having a new boyfriend fails to grip me. Although it did create a nice moment where Oliver scaled her building. Diggle’s return to being a vigilante was another positive of the episode. He led the way for the new team and it reminded me of the original Team Arrow.
Susan Williams is proving to be more than just annoying for Oliver and she is a surprise highlight. It seems it isn’t just the Green Arrow that has problems. The link between the Human Target, the Bratva and then Susan was clever and when another Oliver came out of the elevator I was really shocked. The Human Target was a nice addition, who played a vital role this week even in the flashbacks. Overall a good episode that sets up nicely for a clash between Prometheus and the Green Arrow.
