Arrow Season 6: Upcoming Episode Focuses on the Dragon

Posted by March 31, 2018 Comment

After this week’s episode of Arrow season 6, ‘The Thanatos Guild’, we see that things are going from bad to worse for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). Season 5 built up a team around him and a family to support him — now all of that is vanishing as half the team has split on its own, Thea (Willa Holland) has left town, and there seems to be trouble brewing with Diggle (David Ramsey). How much of this is Oliver being Oliver and how much of it is the work of Ricardo ‘the Dragon’ Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) remains to be seen — which may happen soon as we get the synopsis for the 19th episode of the season: ‘The Dragon’.

We learned this week that Diaz is moving Vertigo, he has both the police captain and the district attorney on his payroll, and he’s the one that framed Oliver for the death of Cayden James’s son. He doesn’t seem like a very nice guy at all.

Arrow episode 19 – The Dragon

DIAZ SETS HIS SIGHTS ON THE QUADRANT — Looking to expand his empire, Diaz (guest star Kirk Acevedo) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) meet with The Quadrant, a coalition of mafia families who run national organized crime. Meanwhile, after Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) recent decision, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) double their efforts on building Helix Dynamics. Gordon Verheul directed the episode written by Spiro Skentzos & Elizabeth Kim (#619). Original airdate 4/19/2018.

The interesting part is the line about Felicity and Curtis doubling their efforts after a decision by Oliver… what decision? Do things go as bad as possible with Diggle? Does Oliver push away Felicity and William? How low will he go this season?

Arrow airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.
