Arrow – Season 7 Episode 14

“Brothers & Sisters” Arrow focuses on the importance of family and how these relationships define people in both time periods.

“Star City Slayer” Arrow dabbles with horror when the serial killer targeting the team steps up his efforts as a couple of characters consider major life changes.

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 12

“Emerald Archer” Arrow celebrates its 150th episode with a slight alteration in format and a suggestion for how the show moves forward.

Elseworlds Part 1

Elseworlds; the annual DC TV crossover story begins with a -sort of- body switching plot and the promise of a large scale threat. I’ll freely admit that the crossover stories are something I look forward to every year. Even though I don’t always love the shows that participate in them I’m still fully invested in…
