As if you couldn't tell by last night's episode of Arrow, which left things off in a pretty chaotic place in Starling City, we're down to the last couple of episodes of Season 2. The teaser for "Streets of Fire" reminds us that there are just two episodes left, in fact, with next week's installment serving as the penultimate episode of the second season. Spoilers if you aren't caught up through last night's "City of Blood."
Sebastian Blood's vision for the chaotic state of Starling City seemed to be taking shape rather nicely at the end of "City of Blood," as "his" army of Mirokuru'ed up soldiers followed orders. Looking at the trailer for 'Streets of Fire," it looks like Thea's heavily regretting not getting a business class ticket for that train. But did anyone really think she'd get the heck out of Dodge before it all hit the fan? Where's Roy when you need him?
Seriously, where's Roy, because Thea needs him?
And then there's Diggle, who was face to masked-face with Isabel, who has good reason to want to take him out. Will she? Is this them fighting here?
The episode description actually acknowledges that the army of soldiers are Slade's and not Blood's...
I'll be surprised if Blood survives this episode, to be honest. I'm already picturing that last look of realization on his face as it occurs to him that he never had control over anything and that this was all about Slade's quest for vengeance. Will Blood survive the season or next week's episode? Or will Starling be out another mayor?
Malcolm Merlyn for mayor! Speaking of whom, he's back in this episode. He's mentioned in the description and we get a glimpse of him taking on a little bit of a Captain Obvious persona...
Thanks Merlyn, now go save Thea! Or find Roy. Either works.
And speaking of people helping out, it looks like Laurel's rise to heroism wasn't just a one-shot deal. The trailer shows her saving the day again...
In absence of Canary, it seems like Laurel's really coming in handy these days. It's nice to see her being utilized that way, rather than just the girl in distress.
