Episode Info

The Season 7 premiere picks up five months after Oliver turned himself into the FBI and revealed his identity as the Green Arrow to the public. He's incarcerated at Slabside Maximum Security Prison and determined to keep a low profile in order to shorten his sentence for the sake of his family, but is tested when he runs into old foes. Meanwhile, Diggle and Dinah have taken on new jobs and left their costumes behind but not everyone is following suit.

Critic Reviews for Inmate 4587

It wasn't the best season premiere, but it was good, and the foreshadowing has me intrigued. I'm excited to see what the show has in store for us this season.

It's one episode so I don't want to get too ridiculous, but if Inmate 4587 is any indication of the rest of Season 7, this might rival Season 2 and 5.

It is giving the rest of the cast a chance to stake out some of the A-story focus, so hopefully they can continue to find a good balance between those elements moving forward.

This was a solid hook for Season 7 in my book, and it could keep people watching while the actual star of the series is rotting in prison.

An old plot device breathes new life into a series that's struggled to find stable footing.

I have a lot of questions about how competent the FBI really is if it's been 5 months and this guy is still on the loose.

In her first outing as showrunner, Beth Schwartz went for a little from both columns. The result, to put it plainly, ain't half bad.

Solid, twisty, and table-setting.

"Inmate #4587" may very well be the best season premiere in Arrow history, and that's saying a lot because Arrow knows how to kick off a season.

Something feels different this year. Beth Schwartz is the head of the ship now and, while we have no idea where in the hell it's headed, we're excited to get there.
