Felicity: “You have sacrificed everything to the the Arrow, even you and me, but whether or not you break Roy out of Iron Heights, there is no more Arrow. Ra’s took that from you.”
“Broken Arrow” is the April 15 episode of “Arrow.” Warning, this article contains spoilers. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “Arrow” airs Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. CT on the CW.
Oliver has to go to Ray for help because he can’t suit up anymore. The sass level is insane. Oliver and Ray being forced to work together was a lot of fun to watch, especially when Ray brought up all his tech stuff. Oliver had no time for any of that. It’s been awhile since we have seen Oliver in sass mode. Wasn’t it glorious?
It was also really interesting to see Oliver placed in a position where he can’t do anything. There’s no bad guy for him to beat up to keep his mind off personal matters. Oliver can’t suit up, and he can’t break Roy out of prison. Oliver’s helpless for the first time since he landed on that island years ago.
No matter who it is, Oliver always offers training advice. It is one of his amusing quirks. Admittedly, Ray did need to hear what Oliver had to say. Technology is great, but it doesn’t always save you from a punch to the face. Okay, how cool was that fight scene when Oliver was in control of the A.T.O.M. suit?
Quentin’s rampage was still going strong. He got a warrant for the Arrow cave and even Thea’s house. What cause did he have to justify a search warrant for Thea’s home? It is a little ridiculous that even after Oliver told Quentin that he wasn’t going to let Roy cover for him, Quentin acted that Oliver forced Roy to do this. He has lost his objectivity and what made him a good cop.
It would have been one thing if Quentin’s rage was only focused on Oliver. Quentin’s upset that Oliver kept Sara’s death from him, which lead to him developing a vendetta. However, Quentin’s rage and rudeness was also directed towards Thea. He knew Thea was involved with Roy, and he did not show her any compassion.
One great Quentin scene was his talk with Roy in prison. He never gave up on trying to save Roy, and he even offered the advice that being in prison doesn’t erase all the bad done on the outside. What was your impression of Quentin during the episode?
It made sense that Felicity, Diggle, and Roy had a plan all along to get Roy out. Diggle and Felicity were really calm about Roy being in prison. They weren’t upset. Instead, they focused on the fact that Oliver wasn’t in prison. Also, it showed how skilled Diggle and Felicity are. They arranged this whole set up, and it went perfectly.
Alright, let’s talk about Roy leaving. He brought a lot to the show. Roy was more than backup for Oliver in the field. Oliver had someone to mentor, and Roy got a family. He will be missed. Will Team Arrow ever be the same after all of this?
