While waiting for “Arrow” Season 3, let’s reminisce a bit about “Arrow” Season 2. One of the memorable episodes is “City of Blood.” In this episode, Oliver weighed his options against Slade. He considered surrendering to his archenemy. Read on to find out more about the “Arrow” “City of Blood” recap.
Previously on “Arrow” “City of Blood” (S2 E21), Oliver (Stephen Amell) was not in great shape. He did not even attend Moira’s (Susanna Thompson) funeral. Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro) was proclaimed mayor of Starling City. Team Arrow has been worried sick for Oliver has been missing for days. What they did not know was that Oliver was hiding in his second lair. Yes, the Arrow has a second lair, where Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) did not bother to look for him.
Anyway, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) was busy putting the pieces together. She was suspicious of Sebastian, having something to do with Slade. In one specific scene, we saw Slade (Manu Bennett) called Sebastian and told him to get his ass to work. Laurel went to Sebastian’s office and talked about unimportant stuff. Her main goal was to plant a bug in Sebastian’s computer. Voila! She discovered the press release about Moira’s death. It was written even before Moira was killed. Talk about being prepared!
Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) thought that it would be best for her to leave Starling City. Will it be for good or just for the meantime? We could not really tell. But her scene with Oliver, saying their goodbyes to each other, was heartwarming.
ARGUS found Oliver in his secret lair. When Diggle and Felicity reached the hideout, they were surprised with Oliver’s decision to surrender to Slade. Felicity was trying to stop him, but he seemed into it. After Oliver bid goodbye to Thea, he called Slade and told him to meet him at the pier.
When Oliver reached the pier, a dart hit him, causing him to become unconscious. He woke up, finding himself in the Arrow lair. He then saw Felicity, Diggle and Laurel. Laurel and Oliver talked privately. She revealed to Oliver what she found out about Sebastian and reminded him that Starling City needs the Arrow.
Sebastian was dining in a restaurant when Oliver showed up uninvited. Oliver told Sebastian about what he knew regarding his connection with Slade. When asked how he found out, he just said, “Because I am the Arrow.”
A mirakuru army was starting to rise in the city. In a police headquarters, a mirakuru man was arrested for a petty crime. When the clock hit nine, he broke out from his cuffs and attacked Detective Lance. Then, he put out a Deathstroke mask. In the train station where Thea was aboard, another mirakuru soldier began his rage. What do you think would happen to Starling City with dozens of mirakuru soldiers going mad?
