So, we finally got to meet Felicity’s father — it just took until the end of the episode to actually realize it. What started as just another “Baddie of the Week” episode turned into a whole lot more on Wednesday night.
With all the Legends of Tomorrow setup shenanigans a thing of the distant past, Arrow is back to doing what it does best — and this season is firing on all cylinders (and possibly a few more, never-seen cylinders).
After fading to black with Felicity bleeding to death on the street, the midseason premiere of Arrow had a whole lot of story to pay off. Luckily for us, Wednesday night’s episode, “Blood Debts,” did it in spades.
The midseason finale of The CW’s Arrow ended on one of the biggest cliffhangers in series history (which is saying a lot, since one literally featured a cliff), and now we have a look at where it’s going next.
Most actors would kill for just one iconic role, but John Barrowman has followed up his tenure as Captain Jack on Torchwood and Doctor Who as one of the greatest frenemies in TV history as Malcolm Merlyn on Arrow. Now we’re going to get the backstory we never knew we wanted.
