Episode 1 to Season 7 of Arrow aired just a couple of hours ago on October 15. It was thrilling with a new plot twist for the two, Oliver and Felicity. Poor Oliver took one for team Arrow, he openly confessed to being the Green Arrow and went to Prison. Season 6 as you may recall ended up disappointing fans who’d expected Ricardo Diaz to be caught. He evaded as usual. Premiere episode to Season 7 on CW kept us on our toes, to say the least, and I kept wondering what happens to the rest of the team?! So the episode picked up right where finale episode to Season 6 left off. Oliver took to prison, and FBI struck a deal with Ricardo Diaz.
So Who’s The New Green Arrow?
As we saw, a new Green Arrow is traipsing around. It could be John Diggle as he was desperate to take Oliver’s place throughout Season 6. Rumors say it can’t be Rene Ramirez or Dinah Drake or Curtis Holt for that matter. For now, it’s not confirmed who he is. The newest vigilante is seen handling street criminals in the absence of Oliver. He’s not safe either; the police are after him too.
As for Ricardo’s part, Star City went from him to FBI in exchange for his freedom. In “Inmate #4587” Oliver faces hell in Prison due to the past nature of his activities. Other Prison inmates such as Derek Sampson hate him. He’s an outcast, even amongst people from prison! Throughout the episode we see inmates trying to harm him in one way or other.
He is either seen battling emotionally or physically. But by the end of episode 1, Oliver took it out on them. But by the end, he unleashed all his anger and hatred on his prison inmates, the ones who troubled him. It’s just one of those things where Oliver will be seen fighting it out in prison. Eventually, he will get out but not just now.
Oliver’s other half Felicity is now in witness protection and for what?! So Ricardo could get off easily. Ricardo did manage to find her, and we saw an elaborate fight sequence between the two. Felicity managed to escape by the end.
