Arrow -- "Trust But Verify" -- 1/23/13

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Synopsis:

The next person on Arrow's (Stephen Amell) list is Diggle's (David Ramsey) commanding officer and mentor from Afghanistan, Ted Gaynor (guest star Ben Browder). Oliver suspects Ted is responsible for recent armoured truck robberies, but Diggle defends Ted and takes a job at Ted's security company to keep an eye on him. Oliver decides to make a move on Ted, which puts him at odds with Diggle. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) suspects that Moira (Susanna Thompson) is having an affair with Malcom (guest star John Barrowman). Tommy (Colin Donnell) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) have an awkward dinner with Malcom. Nick Copus directed the episode written by Gabrielle Stanton (#111).

Episode 11 of 23

This episode was just okay. Ted Gaynor wasn't a really interesting villain.

and how stupid were those guys to approach Diggle when he had a grenade launcher during that last heist?

The flashbacks to the island were cool and I liked the reveal that Yao Fei was bad.

Thea acting out thinking her Mother was a cheater was kind of a dumb subplot.

Sad geek face because no one yelled out "HAWKAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" at any time because they were using the Blackhawks.

Spoiler for next week.
Spoiler:
Lincoln from Fringe next week as the bad guy? Cool!


Yeah, not much going on other than the reveal that the island dude is bad. Wonder what that's about.

I can't get over the casting of Tommy's dad. The guy is only 15 years older. He doesn't look the part.

He was worse in Chuck a few years ago. Couldn't tell in DW due to makeup.

As much as I like he casting for most characters, Thea and mommy Queen are really out of place. I feel like they bring down all the scenes they are in.

Haven't had a lot of Ollie/Laural time lately.

I eagerly await Ollie and Thea giving in to their desires and making out soon. They have very different chemistry than bro and sis. They certainly read hotter than Ollie / Laurel.
