[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the Season 7, Episode 8 of Arrow, “Unmasked.”]
The new Environmentally friendly Arrow is… a she?!
Yeah, that was really turning into sort of predicted, given that the hooded vigilante who had taken about in Oliver’s stead appeared to be additional balletic and fluid in motion than our earlier scheduled bow-hunk. I mean, the pointed toes? The delicate entire body rolls? As well as, supplied the recent increase of woman energy on the show, it can make overall perception that the most up-to-date iteration of the Emerald Archer be a woman.
But damn, that very last-moment twist was rich!
In the last seconds of “Unmasked,” the aforementioned femme fatale (Sea Shimooka) was observed on the grounds of the burnt-out Queen Mansion addressing the grave of her “dad,” expressing that Oliver (Stephen Amell) was “far more like you than I believed… and additional like me, far too.” Pan close to to expose that the headstone is that of the late Robert Queen, which usually means we’re working with Emiko Queen, Ollie’s half-sister! Apparently she has no ideas on “supplying up,” which appears to indicate that Overlook Point is intent on saving the metropolis that her bro has failed.
In the comics, Emiko is the daughter of Robert and the assassin Shado, but Arrow followers will remember Shado as the woman who taught Oliver to use a bow and arrow in the course of his days on Lian Yu. Provided that she was killed on the island after serving to Ollie and Slade (Manu Bennett), it’s going to be fascinating to see how intently they stick to Emi’s backstory of being kidnapped and lifted as his possess by villainous Komodo. Plus, we’re ready to see in which they will tweak the timeline and whether or not or not we are going to be seeing flashbacks involving Celina Jade and Jamey Sheridan, who performed Robert.
And speaking of timelines having turns, we also at last acquired some of the items on Katherine McNamara’s cage-combating character, Maya. Or ought to we say Blackstar? Now that it truly is out there that the Shadowhunters actress is connected in some way to the thriller surrounding Felicity Smoak’s demise in the upcoming, there is a great probability that Kat is playing a baddie. And we are into it.
What did you believe about the Queen loved ones shock and McNamara’s debut? On board or just simple bored? Explain to us in the responses!
