TV Review: Arrow S3E6 Guilty
On this episode of Arrow Ted Grant is accused of murder when a body is found strung up in the Wildcat gym. In flashbacks, Maseo asks Tatsu to help jog Oliver’s memory so he can remember where an informant for China White stashed key information.
The episode might be focused on Ted Grant, but really the episode is about dual roles and having a partner in crime. It’s a bit of a spoiler, but someone from Ted’s past is behind the murder, which puts the focus on Roy as well, since he’s also a loose cannon to the Arrow.There’s also some foreshadowing for Laurel Lance’s taking on the role of Black Canary too, especially since she’s being trained by Grant.
Roy also admits that he thinks he killed the Canary. Everyone’s reaction is a bit less pissed/shocked than you’d think about this bombshell. In fact, everyone is a bit zen about it all. That of course doesn’t turn out exactly how you’d think. This too brings up the point again that Oliver/Arrow is a murderer, like Roy. Again, Oliver is a little chill about that, where as Roy has the proper meltdown.
It’s an ok episode, definitely not as good as last week, but still moving various plotlines and character development down the road quite well.
And as has been a pretty common tactic, the last few minutes sets up something fun for next week.
