Our favorite Starling City residents are reeling in tonight’s episode of Arrow.
Following the death of Moira in the last new episode, Team Arrow is down for the count in a major way and, according to Paul Blackthorne, experiencing, “a little bit of a shock to the system.” “Lance and Moira obviously weren’t bosom buddies, but there was some respect and their relationship was warming up in recent months,” says the actor. “And, obviously, the effect it has on this daughter — particularly Laurel — is huge for Lance. It’s a sad moment.”
But even in the group’s grief, there’s a major threat to be dealt with, as Slade Wilson is on the run. And while Oliver certainly has his sights set on his nemesis, Det.
