However, Sara’s fellow League of Assassins member, Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law, “Spartacus”), comes to bring Sara back to the fold, but when Sara refuses, Nyssa kidnaps Dinah.

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."

Goddamit jus make a Batman TV series that ties into this television universe
.... Do it NAOW!!!
Spidey10 - 1/15/2014, 7:35 AM
I love the show but this is not Green Arrow im sorry this is Batman Jr...ive read enough of him to know hes not this dark brooding guy...and all of his villains are Batman villains...still a great show but it just seems everything in the DC universe revolves around one guy and thats disappointing
GUNSMITH - 1/15/2014, 7:40 AM
WHOS PLAYING NYSSA?
Primordiac - 1/15/2014, 8:10 AM
Don't even try it writers, you know what I'm talking about.

Just don't.

Game of Thrones is way better than The Mindy Project


Quit comparing shows that have nearly nothing in common.
GliderMan - 1/15/2014, 8:25 AM
The one and only problem with this show is that Oliver's not as near as much of a smartass like he is in the comics.
40oz - 1/15/2014, 8:35 AM
@DestroyerOfHaters... We can compare the shows. They are both comic book properties on network TV. So... Stop trying to justify your liking of one of the worst shows ever. Agents of Shield.
DrunkenPirateNukem - 1/15/2014, 8:35 AM
@Spidey sorry to disagree with you but

The huntress,Billy Wintergreen, Malcom Merlyn, Deathstroke (DC villain not Batman), China White, Bronze Tiger, Dr. Ivo(Secret society of super villains), Count Vertigo, Solomon Grundy (same as Deathstroke DC villain), Sebastian Blood aka Brother Blood, Isabel Rochev aka the queen, just to name a few....They are not Batman Villains....They are villains of Green Arrow and others that appeared in many DC superhero comics including Batman.

And this show is another version of Green Arrow where he is learning to be the hero, after 5 years in that insane island, watching his father suicide, survive that island, went to Starling and find out his sister is a junkie, his best friend tapping the love of his life, finding out his mother is a criminal, watch his best friend died....how can´t be him a brooding guy????

This show is the best superhero show. And im glad that you love it

Spidey10 - 1/15/2014, 8:48 AM
@Duke the only one you got right was Vertigo and Merlyn...ill give you Deathstroke being a "DC" villain only because hes a hitman by trade and hes appeared in multiple arcs mainly Batman however but the rest are for the most part Batman villains...to say there DC oriented is kind of a cheap thing because of the Justice League and if thats the case then we can say that Doc Ock is a Punisher villain...while they may have crossed paths because of the universe I dont think any of these villains are thought of when you think of the character...i will say that bringing in the clock king is a change of pace because that is a Green Arrow villain but then were going right back to the league of Shadows which is so above Green Arrow pay grade that im torn to see this as a Green Arrow show....but what i will say is that its done correctly as far as a comic book tv series and because the story is engaging and it is a universe where they both do exist in the comics i just accept it
Lemons - 1/15/2014, 9:03 AM
It's Nyssa Raatko not Nyssa Al Ghul. Al Ghul is a title not a surname.
DrunkenPirateNukem - 1/15/2014, 9:08 AM
@Spidey ...Grundy was introduced as an enemy of the Golden Age Green Lantern, Isabel Rochev is from Green Arrow Comics same as China White, Bronze Tiger first appearence in comics was Dragon´s Fists...then he appeared in batman but he is part of the suicide squad, Brother Blood´s first appearence was Teen titans.


The league of Assassins and Deadshot are Batman Villains.


Spidey10 - 1/15/2014, 9:13 AM
@Duke I didnt know about the Grundy origin being in the Green Lantern arc but to be honest i dont read that much green lantern *shrugs* i know about Isabel but i wasnt referring to her or China White or Bronze Tiger i only meant the big names and i dont consider them like the big name villains you know i mean even on the show he whoops their ass really quickly i dont think he takes them seriously on the show sort of like the comics but the suicide squad thing im going to have to read that i didnt know that either...learn something new everyday
DestroyerofHaters - 1/15/2014, 9:20 AM
@40oz- Oh gee, you listed off one similarity. Which is my point. They aren't even owned by the same comic brand. There's no reason to hate one simply because you like the other. No one on here needs to like Agents of Shield, but they also prove nothing about the quality of Arrow if all they can say is it's a better show than one they apparently despise. It does nothing for their argument.
DestroyerofHaters - 1/15/2014, 9:22 AM
For the record. I watch both Arrow and Agents of Shield. I'll almost certainly watch any other comic book show that makes the air.
DrunkenPirateNukem - 1/15/2014, 9:34 AM
@Spidey i guess the producers put the League of Assassins on this show for ratings because they knew that the G.A. would recognize it from the Nolan movies... and i agree with clock king..he is going to change a lot of things..i expect the clock king could make Ollie insane...he is kinda like Jigsaw

"William Tockman, Clock King spends his early years taking care of his invalid sister. One day he finds out from a doctor's visit that he himself only has six months to live. Despairing for his sister's future, he watches the timing of a local bank's vault in order to rob it, hoping the money would provide for his sister after he was gone. His caper would have gone successfully, had he not tripped a silent alarm and been caught by the Green Arrow.
While he is incarcerated, his sister dies alone. In further hideous irony, Tockman discovers that he really is not terminally ill; his doctor had accidentally switched his papers with those of another patient. Infuriated, he escapes, later futilely attempting revenge on the Green Arrow."




..maybe that was Slade talking about in last episode..about taking Oliver down in every way.
jp688 - 1/15/2014, 9:42 AM
Her name is Nyssa, not Nyssa al Ghul. These people are idiots!
Dmon - 1/15/2014, 10:55 AM
@Spidey10 Merlyn was a Member of League of Assassins that was his origin in the comics.
Dmon - 1/15/2014, 10:57 AM
League of Assassins are used all through out the DC Comics not just Batman. They have been enemies of the Justice League which GA has been a part of.
BatmanRobinNightwing - 1/15/2014, 10:59 AM
@jp688 Nyssa is an al ghul. She is Ra's other daughter, hence why the title is "Heir to the Demon"
Spidey10 - 1/15/2014, 11:00 AM
@Dmon i said that Merlyn was a Green Arrow villain but his association with the League never prompted any assitance from Ras like the show is hinting is all that im saying
Spidey10 - 1/15/2014, 11:02 AM
@Dmon i also mentioned that because everyone exist in the same universe and because you can make the case that Justice League was the lightning rod for all of villains in the DC universe i accept it
BatmanRobinNightwing - 1/15/2014, 11:05 AM
@jp688 next time you should make sure you're correct before you start calling people idiots, because now you look like the idiot
Dmon - 1/15/2014, 11:09 AM
@Spidey10 What other assistance other then training has he had by the League on the show? Because in the show he is on the outs with Ra's just like the comics. In the comics he has very much been associated with the League. GA has interacted several times with the League in the comics. So there should be no problem with League also being featured in the show. All villains they have featured have been cross over villains for the most part. It's not like we are going to see the Joker or the Penguin on here.
Spidey10 - 1/15/2014, 11:12 AM
Ive never read an encounter with Green Arrow and Ras in the comics...if im wrong sue me i dont read enough Green Arrow obviously lol but this version of Green Arrow just seems like Gotham and a Nightwing show at times and again its my opinion...still love the show because everything again in my opinion is done well just doesnt feel like a Green Arrow show at times
Dmon - 1/15/2014, 11:20 AM
@Spidey10 Well DC is a lot different then Marvel. DC's villains cross over more.
This is just one example:
In the series Green Arrow/Black Canary #11, a metahuman faction of the League of Assassins was introduced. They were involved in the abduction of an injured Connor Hawke. This groups members included Bear, Tolliver, Ruck, Spike, Mazone, and their leader Targa. However, although they thought they were being commanded by Ra's al Ghul, they were apparently duped by an imposter Shado.

Also The Seven Men of Death - The seven deadliest assassins of the League and Ra's al Ghul's personal hit squad. They answer only to the Demon himself and the Sensei. Merlyn was member of this.
dnno1 - 1/15/2014, 2:27 PM
Just for the record , Deaths trike is a Teen Titans villain. He made his first appearance in New Teen Titans #2 back in 1980. Solomon Grundy was originally a villain of the Golden Age Green Lantern back in the 1940's and today is just as much a villain of Supreman as he is of Batman or Green Arrow. If you guys think that this show is too much like Batman, you shouldn't be surprised. Green Arrow was designed to be a knock - off of Batman and they are only leveraging that to lure in more viewers and expose them to other characters in the DC universe. Just as Superman is the launchpad for the DCCU, so is Arrow doing the same for the DCTVLAU.

Thank goodness she's comin' back. Now if only Huntress could be written into the series again..
BlackCat1 - 1/22/2014, 11:21 PM
I think Laurel will be placed into the League of Assassins
