Starling City seems to have another vigilante problem on the loose as 'The Savior' starts to broadcast murders online, claiming he was inspired by The Hood. What will happen when two vigilantes go toe-to-toe? Find out next week on Arrow

An angry resident of The Glades who calls himself "The Savior" (guest star Christopher Redman) embarks on a kidnapping and killing spree to punish those he believes have wronged the residents of his neighborhood. To make things worse, he broadcasts these murders online and claims he was inspired by Arrow's (Stephen Amell) vigilantism. Oliver is horrified by this statement and vows to stop "The Savior," but his manhunt in intensified after Thea (Willa Holland) comes to him in tears and tells him Roy (guest star Colton Haynes) has been kidnapped. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is surprised when her father (Paul Blackthorne) starts to believe her mother's (guest star Alex Kingston) claim that Sara is still alive. Meanwhile, Malcom (John Barrowman) tells Moira (Susanna Thompson) to find the person responsible for his attempted murder. David Ramsey and Colin Donnell also star. Nick Copus directed the episode written by Drew Z. Greenberg & Wendy Mericle (#118).

@scotticus, I think Roy gets captured then somehow is inspired by the arrow saving him, to hopefully start becoming speedy in season 2

Arsenal in making...

My idea for the Roy Harper/Red Arrow/Arsenal/Speedy story: Roy is gonna start working at Oliver's club, and then one day find Green Arrow's lair (please start calling him that). Then Roy is gonna beg Oliver to let him work with him. Oliver will then train Roy, as Slade trained Oliver. Then after maybe a season and a half he will be working with GREEN Arrow as RED Arrow. Then they have a falling out (because of Roy being addicted to drugs). Oliver kicks him out of his little 'group', and Roy relocates to a different city, calling himself Arsenal. Thea eventually becomes Speedy later. And then maybe around season 5 or so, she is killed. Roy comes back, clean, and mourns Thea's death. Oliver makes peace with Roy, apologizing for leaving things the way he did. Roy then becomes a Nightwing esque roll on the show, teaming up with Green Arrow here and there.

@Wingding That isn't too bad of an idea, I think that should happen during Mid Season 2. I'm not sure Audiences are ready for Oliver to take on an apprentice yet, especially when the show is moving fast when it comes to everything else.

^^Then why have this show garnered excellent reviews and is already approved for a second season.

@VERISIMILITUDE And...You decided to click on the article and comment negatively about a show about a character you don't like, why?

Batman was prepared to marry Jezebel Jet who is black in Batman RIP. He was also dating a black doctor during his recovery in Knightfall.

It's really a "who is a bigger pimp" race at this point with Bruce Wayne?
BarackObama - 3/20/2013, 9:42 PM

All this pimp talk a no mention of the "bishop don juan" of the comic world , hawkeye. Hawkeye gets more superheroin snatch that any two charaters combine. While Batman, ironman, and GA get all that regular pussy, hawkeye is banging nearly every chick that has ever been an avenger. Hawkeye for pimp of the year, at the next comicbook players ball.

Sounds like that "Dark Archer" episode. Based on the synopsis for nxt week

@firg
See i thought we were talking across all media. If you talk just live action yeah they got it, but just because they've been exposed in that medium more. Once you add the comics, there is no comparison. Hawkeye gets it in with top flight superladies, while they lay around with normies. Plus they got big money, so they pretty much tricken. Broke dude with no powers screwing other heroes is more pimptastic than rich guys getting it in with normies.

Hopefully when Roy joins the team, he'll become Arsenal so Ollie can take the Arrow moniker. If they're out there as partners, they'll need codenames; can't call each other by their civilian identities.
