"Prochnost" takes team Arrow to Russia for a nostalgia-filled adventure, fleshing out Oliver Queen's dynamic with his children to emotionally stirring effect.
What's shocking about "Prochnost," and indeed most of this season is this: Everyone's shockingly emotionally healthy.
The show's sense of history and constant grappling with Oliver's past actions is one of its hallmarks, and that feeling is even stronger in the final season, which is indeed hitting all of the greatest hits. This was strongly felt in tonight's episode.
So yes -- Roy is back! At least, you know, for a few more episodes until the show ends. Le sigh.
Arrow focuses on family drama over Crisis buildup this week, and that's okay.
An ode to Arrow Season 5, arguably one of the best seasons of the beloved show, ["Prochnost"] was filled with tears, shockers, and fighting -- and not just the physical kind.
"Prochnost" smartly used Anatoly to dig into Laurel's morality and her continual journey toward the heroic, one that has been surprisingly fulfilling, even as it's been characterized by more fits and starts than the path of others.
This character-driven piece was successful in its attempts to reflect, while also managing to move the pieces on the chessboard in a somewhat unexpected direction - setting the stage for an even more interesting second half.
The future episodes last season showed Mia and William were interesting and layered characters and those scenes really pay off having them with Oliver and it shines here.
I absolutely love that we are getting to see Oliver as a father again... Not to mention the fact that Stephen Amell does a beautiful job in these emotional Queen-Smoak family moments
I feel like I should care about these family scenes more. Stephen Amell is definitely doing his part, but the setup is bad. I'm always going to be on Oliver's side as opposed to characters that just strolled in last season.
