Arrow Season 1 Episode 18 Salvation
Do superheroes and vigilantes ever take holidays? Apparently, they are rarely off duty. Just when Oliver was enjoying a few crumbs of comfort, one thing happened on top of the other. After last week’s episode, “The Huntress Returns”, there is no shadow of doubt that he came to regret his decision to take Helena under his wing. Driven by a desperate, immediate desire to settle an old score with her father, she not only turned Oliver’s world upside down but also hurt his friends. As if things weren’t bad enough, when she came face to face with Detective Lance and McKenna Hall, Helena gave The Hood up. Luckily, they didn’t believe her.
In the meantime, the crisis in Laurel’s family was deepening. As it turned out, Dinah didn’t rest her assertions on solid evidence. She told the two her theory on Sarah’ survival and let Quentin do the hard work. Well, that’s disappointing… As the original Black Canary, Dinah should have moved heaven and earth to find her daughter. Roy and Thea were still caught in the middle of a rich girl/poor boy dance. When she got approached by a pair of muggers, Roy engaged in a battle, taking both guys down in a couple of shakes. To the end, the tango slipped into a waltz. Last but not least, McKenna decided to move to Coast City to live with her sister. Maybe she’ll run into the Green Lantern. She seems to have a weakness for the “green” boys.
This week, a new vigilante who calls himself The Savior plays havoc among the inhabitants of The Glades. Claiming he was inspired by Arrow, he kidnaps and kills those he believes have aggrieved the residents of his neighborhood. Moreover, the so-called savior broadcasts these murders online. Horrified by his actions, Oliver sets out to stop him. To make matters worse, Thea sees Roy being kidnapped. Much to Laurel’ surprise, Quentin comes to believe Dinah is telling the truth and Sarah is still alive while Malcolm asks Moira to find the person responsible for his attempted murder. “Salvation” airs Wednesday, March 27… Make sure you don’t miss it!
