So, what did you guys think of the fourth episode of Arrow? No cameos, no guest stars although there was a Blüdhaven mention.





ARROW RECRUITS LAUREL TO HELP WITH A CASE — Oliver (Stephen Amell) still hasn’t figured out how to get back in Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) good graces, but a late night bonding session with Thea (Willa Holland) gives him the inspiration he needs. Looking into a suspicious murder case, Oliver realizes an innocent man, Peter Declan (guest star Lane Edwards), was framed by one of the targets on his list. As Arrow, he asks Laurel to help prove Declan’s innocence. Meanwhile, Walter (guest star Colin Salmon) asks one of his employees, Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Rickards), to look into a $2.6 million withdrawal that Moira (Susanna Thompson) made without his knowledge. David Ramsey and Paul Blackthorne also star. Vince Misiano directed the episode written by Moira Kirland & Lana Cho (104).


And here's a promo for next week's episode 1x05 titled Damaged.

Great episode! Getting better every week!

I've watched the first episode. It's well made but didn't get me excited about it. It's getting better?
Fogs - 10/31/2012, 6:21 PM
^^ my answer there :))
Millenium - 10/31/2012, 6:50 PM
i dont know how he is gonna get out of this
StuckInPanels - 10/31/2012, 6:57 PM
I thought Diggle was going to come in and say it was him behind it all. This show keeps getting more and more interesting. I have no idea where its going, which is a good thing.
beezness - 10/31/2012, 7:26 PM
Damn, did not see that one coming. Gotta love a show that seems to go "f**k the status quo" every damn episode! Can't wait to see where this goes next.
spoonman - 10/31/2012, 7:33 PM
It was intense and I'm really starting to care for Ollie. Character development is starting to get me vested into the show. Love it.
LP4 - 10/31/2012, 7:39 PM
@Nomis- All of them are extremely hot. My personal favorite is Ollie's sister lol



snappahead316 - 10/31/2012, 7:41 PM
I'm guessing Diggle's gonna act as green arrow which would make it seem like they have the wrong guy. Then Ollie would be free
superbatspiderman - 10/31/2012, 7:45 PM
I liked the mentioning of Bludhaven in this episode I thought that was pretty cool. I think Diggs is gonna be kind of like Arrow's Jim Gordon.
MrDuck - 10/31/2012, 8:06 PM
I think Diggs should be like 2nd Green Arrow to get them to lose Ollie's trail, maybe act as like a control center for him, like in an Oracle type role, and maybe in season two have Ollie confront a superhero for hire, ie. Jim Harper aka The Guardian leading to his nephew Roy

I missed the ENTIRE episode because of the DAMN baseball game...!!!... I guess, that, I will just have to watch it on the CW website tomorrow GOD DAMN IT!!! *disappointed*; *smh*; :(

DioFoRio - 10/31/2012, 8:23 PM
thanks for ruining it snappahhead ; )...this show is really fun.
Nabu - 10/31/2012, 8:31 PM
I really enjoyed the episode,and when he mentioned bludhaven,it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.Also,The voice changer was a nice touch, was curious if they were going to include it. It really threw me off when Detective Lance went after Oliver so quickly,thought there would be some sort of episode build-up or something of the like.Looking forward to next episode though.
LP4 - 10/31/2012, 8:43 PM
Also, "Tempest" was a reference to Aqualad
KoonEl - 10/31/2012, 9:10 PM
i liked the pilot, but it has really got me invested after the second and third episodes. Anyone that wasn't blown away by the pilot should give it more time.
CharacterAssassin - 10/31/2012, 9:11 PM
Katie Cassidy is HAWT. Great show so far. Me definitely not a fan of the Detective's character that's for sure. When Ollie get's somewhat caught with his hand in the cookie jar you would have though he'd scope that stairwell for any sort of surveillence camera's.
superotherside - 10/31/2012, 9:14 PM
Wow, not sure what's going to happen in the next episode. I'm very impressed.
KNIGHT3000 - 11/1/2012, 12:26 AM
For me, Dinah's the hottest on this show, and this show rocks by the way
Jefferys - 11/1/2012, 3:31 AM
I can't believe how invested I've become into the show. I never doubted it, but I never thought I'd been pissed to wait an entire week for the next episode to be released. Hopefully one of the channels over here in Land Down Under will be smart enough to pick it up. I really want to converse about with my friends but none of them have seen, either heard about it. Then again, don't think I would have if it wasn't for this beautiful site. Thank Odin that Comicbookmovie.com was invented so I could keep up with talented shows like this one!

Oh and, which episode is Huntress going to be featured in again?
darque13 - 11/1/2012, 3:46 AM
Im loving this series...It doesnt need any cameos to make it great...however...since Bludhaven was mentioned i hope that means there is a possible Nighwing/Arrow team-up.
DC4everLantern - 11/1/2012, 5:07 AM
Deathstroke is coming.
Gamma022 - 11/1/2012, 5:33 AM
Still trying to figure out who John Barrowman is playing.
My guess is Maxwell Lord
thingrock4 - 11/1/2012, 5:38 AM
This show is BAD-ASS!
Redhood2k10 - 11/1/2012, 6:22 AM
I was cautious about the show, but i can't get enough. My wife is also hooked on it (mostly because she thinks Oliver is hot). I was shocked at the fact that Moira was hiding the Queen's Gambit (Jaw dropped and Gasped). Loved the Bludhaven reference and maybe a Nightwing/Arrow crossover would be in the future. Also did anyone else notice that Dig's brother Andy is named after Andy Diggle who wrote Green Arrow: Year One or am i late on this lol.
BruceWayneNewton - 11/1/2012, 7:10 AM
show continues to get better and is clearly being written better. So different than the CW's usual horribly scripted stuff
GUNSMITH - 11/1/2012, 9:13 AM
I LOVE IT..LOVE IT. THERES ACTION AND ORIGIN MYSTERY SLOWLY UNFOLDING WICH YOU COULD SPRINKLE IN FOR SEVERAL SEASONS THAT WOULD KEEP YOU INTRUIGED. I HAD MY DOUBTS BUT DAMN THIS IS WAY BETTER THAN I EVER EXPECTED..AND LAUREL IS REALLY REALLY HOT.
GUNSMITH - 11/1/2012, 9:16 AM
THE FACT THAT THE HERO CAN BE IN DANGER, AND THAT HE'S NOT INVINCIBLE MAKES YOU REALLY WANNA SEE HOW HE GETS OUT OF AN ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE PREDICAMENT
Nivekian - 11/1/2012, 9:16 AM
More DC Universe please, I loved how the action was there with no delay, like him just already being in the waste dumper guys office, no break in, just there. wasting time on him sneaking in and taking out guards would not have done anything for me, disbelief is suspended. Bludhaven being mentioned is great, throw in a Metropolis here and a wayne Industries there, and DC may not need a Justice League movie. They can beat Marvel to the screen in one season by introducing tv Batman and Superman into the television continuity. Green lantern and Flash too, why not Smallville did it. Just go Bold.
thejon93rd - 11/1/2012, 9:24 AM
Kinda slow and a bit cheesy at times, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. One thing that sold the series for me with this episode was Oliver's speech to the guy in the diner (who he tries to recruit), this guy's a good actor and I think he'll get better as the series progresses.
SwingsetKnight - 11/1/2012, 10:08 AM
I agree that ol' Diggs could probably pull the typical superhero getaway trick: "no, really, it CAN'T be him, look here!"

The real question, though, is exactly how he's going to pull that off, as I'd think a couple of crooks so far have described GA as a white guy. Unless he wears makeup. Which would be odd.

Tbh, if Ollie was a bit darker-complected or Diggs a bit lighter, I'd say that they're setting it up for Diggs to take the fall for him. "Mister Queen was nothing more than an unwitting--and frankly witless--accomplice in my war on crime."

Any way it goes, though, I wonder if it wasn't a little too soon to cast suspicion.
DCjohnny - 11/1/2012, 11:21 AM
wow..... this episode was good..... they always tease us in the end and make long for the next episode
IgnurRant - 11/1/2012, 11:50 AM
So i guess this Star(ling) City is on the east coast instead of the west coast,since you can catch a train to Bludhaven.
HughJasol - 11/1/2012, 11:59 AM
True Dat! Hot chicks everywhere in Arrow. Even Ollie's Mom is hot. Great show.
