After securing the biocompound, Diaz shoots up the place, releasing gasses that cloak his, Dart and Kodiak’s exit. Rene meanwhile chases after Silencer, after Dinah is pinned down by toppled equipment. The off-book mission a bust, Watson is reassigned to a desk job in D.C., but she has no regrets about helping out Felicity, with whom she shares a certain professional respect. Later, we realize that Felicity withheld one small detail from her FBI gal pal: Rene actually caught Silencer, whom they now have shackled in a boiler room somewhere. As for what Diaz stole, we see him reveal to Dart and Kodiak that his patience, after suffering so much pain after his series finale tumble into the river, has paid off — as he has whipped up a serum that gives him superstrength!

In the hunt for them, John Diggle and Felicity Smoak had a difference in opinion: Diggle wanted to recover the equipment Diaz and his group wanted to take from A.R.G.U.S. and Felicity wanted to focus on taking down Diaz. Their inter-squad issues led to a parting of ways to close the episode, with Felicity speaking to the FBI for help.

Meanwhile, Diaz injected himself with a liquid to show off immediate effects. He punched a wall using his bare hands which didn’t even cut or bruise his hand. It seems like Diaz will be a bit more formidable villain, as the show moves forward.

In All American, the CW looks to break from their superhero dominance and expand to a larger demographic. All American revolves around a high school football student whose transfer from South Central collides with the world of Beverly Hills. Where many of the shows running on the CW have found their inspiration in fantasy and comics, All American finds its inspiration from the life of professional football player Spencer Paysinger.
It’s difficult to say whether Arrow had any one specific arc its five-year span needed to resolve, even if Slade placed Oliver’s anguish under the lens of his father’s suicide. It’s certainly no accident that Chase’s death would reflect Robert’s, to say nothing of the hall of mirrors that is Oliver and his <...> - by ScreenCrush [Kevin Fitzpatrick]
The fun thing about Prometheus, besides that bonkers-as-hell fun-house score that blared over his introduction, is that while there is a comic-book character of the same name, Arrow‘s producers have promised we’re getting a completely new villain. It’s worth noting that he initially seems to be a patch-work <...> - by New York Observer [Vinnie Mancuso]
Ragman faces a similar issue; he can do just about anything, and yet remains a junior member of Green Arrow's team. Admittedly, Rory Regan is depicted as a newcomer who hasn't learned everything about his powers yet, but he's also a guy who can do almost anything; not once but twice his suit is able to deflect and even <...> - by PopMatters [J.C.

While the new team of heroes don’t always work in season five, Prometheus may be the best villain Arrow has ever had over a season. That includes Deathstroke, who may or may not return for a cameo in this season. Prometheus is great as a villain because he knows Oliver inside and out, having spent years preparing <...> - by DoBlu Season 5 Blu-ray [Matt Paprocki]
