Diggle is now the Green Arrow and he’s doing an good job… If you ignore the fact he can’t fire an arrow.
When an ex special forces team lead by Onyx, steal a deadly nerve gas from Kord industries it’s up to team arrow to stop them. Now lead by Diggle the team feel as though he isn’t up to the challenge, when he freezes during their first encounter with Onyx and her team it takes a pep talk from Oliver to get Diggle back to his old self… That and a little something more.
Convincing Dinah that the nerve damage is gone Diggle gets a new crossbow so he can fire arrows as well as Oliver and keep the cover that he is the Green Arrow. To do this and to help with the nerve damage, Diggle is using a drug he’s getting from a dealer. Is this a type of mirakuru or could it be something else, maybe some kind of venom?
Oliver is enjoying his time as a father, until he is unable to help William with his homework, asking Felicity to help him out, the pair realise they want to and are able to give their relationship another try. This has been a long time coming and I hope this time it sticks.
F.B.I agent Samanda Watson has figured out that since being accused of being the Green Arrow, Oliver has been more visible as Mayor and the Green Arrow is not using his arrows. Linking not only Diggle to Oliver but the whole team, they are all now in her crosshairs.
Diggle is doing a good job as the Emerald Archer, his first stunt sees him jump from the roof of a skyscraper without a rope, while falling he has Dinah use her canary cry to push him to the roof with the bad guys.
His hand to hand combat is more than a match for Onyx and anyone else he will have to face. The drug he is taking will no doubt be the reason he has to return the hood to Oliver.
This was a great episode, id have to say it’s the best so far, this is the level of quality the series should keep.
