If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/15/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

The return of the “Arrowverse” continues tonight when the flagship show, which launched it all, returns for Arrow season seven. After a long-winding series of battles and betrayals, last year’s finale found Team Arrow storming Star City Police Department in pursuit of the evil mastermind Diaz. While the FBI, Arrow, and all his active teammates beat the crap out of the goons occupying the building, Diaz managed to escape. Fortunately they still had Oliver’s old Bratva pal Anatoli Knyazev in custody, and he gave up Diaz’s location for immunity on some charges. It turned out to be a trap though, and Maddog almost died!

Police Chief Lance cut a deal with Diaz after that, desperate to get Black Siren – his daughter’s doppelgänger from Earth2 – back from the gangsters alive. He was ready to order the FBI out of the investigation but only if Diaz showed him proof the alternate Laurel was alive. Since Lance had a pacemaker in his heart, Felicity was able to track him, and they sent in a rescue team. During this action, there were hints that Oliver cut some secret deal with the FBI. During the rescue, Diaz gut-shot Lance, bringing him near to death. Artemis saved Black Siren & Lance both, though. She also blasted Diaz off a roof into the river while he was fighting Oliver.

While Captain Lance was in surgery, his daughters from alternate worlds met each other. The exchange was cold, as they’re both kinda cold-hearted killers. Sadly Lance died. Even worse, Oliver had to admit that he was the real Green Arrow and then surrendered into FBI custody. He was sent to a SuperMax prison. That’s the deal he cut, in exchange for help from the FBI against Diaz. In the public confession speech, he also encouraged his team to remain vigilant in their fight to keep the city safe. The very last scene of the season was Oliver entering prison.

I read some of Stephen Amell’s recent interviews, and from what I gather, Oliver “Green Arrow” Queen, whom Amell plays in the series, will be in prison for a much longer time than fans may be expecting. This signals that the show runners may have adapted a Green Arrow movie script, which was based on Oliver having to face old enemies in a Super Max prison into the general arc of Arrow season seven. Tonight is just the start though, and I can’t wait to see where the show goes, as long as Felicity is in it!! Also: Bring back Ragman!!!

On tonight’s episode, “Inmate 4587,” at Slabside Maximum Security Prison, Oliver is determined to keep a low profile to shorten his sentence; Oliver is tested when he runs into old foes; Diggle and Dinah have taken on new jobs and left their costumes behind.

See how Oliver is handling prison tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

Other than this premiere, I’ll also be watching an episode of my The Man In The High Castle slow binge that has been happening for a week.
