|ALREADY OLD THANKS ARROW|
So instead of the episode’ splot, which barely exists, let’s look at the ANgst Arcs the premiere established for each character.
OLIVER: Bad dad.
FELICITY: Still uncomfortable getting back together with Oliver.
DIGGLE: Some kind of Lian-Yu-based PTSD and injury. Can’t shoot, can’t aim, shot Wild Dog.
WILD DOG: Shot. Also, more of the same daughter stuff.
MR. TERRIFIC: Actually in pretty good shape, angst-wise.
BLACK CANARY: Constantly forced to deal with Evil Alternate Universe Black Siren
THEA: LIan-Yu-induced coma.
QUENTIN: Constantly forced to deal with Evil Alternate Universe Daughter
SLADE: Son’s in Canada, so expect him back mid-season.
WILLIAM: Sulky teenager with dead mom and vigilante mayor dad.
Next week, Oliver has to deal with a Secret Identity Reveal, and is apparently still unwilling to just Iron Man that shit.
