TV Review: Arrow S4E21 Monument Point
Felicity realizes she needs to ask her father, Noah Kuttler, for help when Team Arrow learns what Damien Darhk’s next move is going to be. Meanwhile, Noah and Oliver have a heart-to-heart talk that leaves Oliver rattled.
Arrow has a hell of an interesting episode that isn’t quite as exciting as it should be, but at the same time there’s a hell of a lot at play.
Darhk’s plan involves nuclear missiles and it’s up to Team Arrow to stop them. And really, that rests on Felicity and Noah’s shoulders. The flaws of the episode, and the season, are emphasized by this episode that seems to ignore the reality of nuclear war and what happens when a nuclear weapon is launched.
But, I guess there’s actual death, so I can’t complain that much?
There’s also the issue of Thea and her being kidnapped. This plot is all over the place too, and what Malcom’s involvement too is a bit head scratching. In fact, so many people are ok with nuclear annihilation to restart mankind is even more dumbfounding.
The entire plot just feels bizarre and over the top and asks the viewers to remove any sense of reality or thought and ignore the issues that seem to crop up over and over.
