While Episode 17 of Arrow’s Season 5 has been broadcast on the CW, let’s get back together about the events that marked “Kapiushon”!
What a performance! And yes the meltynauts, never Stephen Amell had offered us such an intense and simply brilliant performance. Moving from anger and rage to despair and deep sorrow, the leading actor of the series has made us pass through all the emotions . While Melty’s editorial offered you to discover our criticism of Arrow Season 5’s episode 16 , let’s get back to the main events that marked Kapiushon last night on the CW . In other words, if you are not especially fans of flashbacks that punctuate most episodes, “Kapiushon” did not have to rejoice at first. And yet, He had more to offer than what one could imagine. Indeed, this episode still put forward one of the bases of the series: the generic. So, we finally discovered how and why Oliver had decided to become “something else” . Generally speaking, it is certain that our hero has suffered greatly and that the bad guys of the previous seasons have not given him gifts, but Adrian Chase offers us another type of torture, as ingenious as it is terrible. Josh Segarra is also excellent in his role and the balance between his performance and that of Stephen Amell was perfect. But this did not prevent this episode from being particularly trying. Yes, Arrow had accustomed us to violence,
Because Oliver has evolved so much since the show’s debut that it’s easy to forget how tough and capable he was of the worst before he returned to Star City. And as Anatoly and Chase have repeatedly told him throughout “Kapiushon”, a costume is not enough to separate the man from the monster and when one sees what he has undergone to a henchman of Kovar , We thought that his secret should have been easy to break through. Clearly, he has a hard time hiding that he takes pleasure in getting the upper hand on his opponent, torturing him and even killing him, but that was the Oliver before. And we can not help being torn by hearing him howl that he liked it. Especially since Chase is more and more Machiavellian not hesitating to use a ” Evelyn Sharp to reach it right in the heart. This intrigue remains, however, masterful as it seems to complete the loop. 5 years ago, Oliver would have done everything and anything to honor his father’s wish. He did not look back any more than he felt the slightest regret in thinking of the family of these criminals . By bringing in a phantom of his past, one question remains in suspense: has he reached the end of the path that separated him from the light or will he fall back into his own? Felt the least regret in thinking of the family of these criminals . By bringing in a ghost of his past, one question remains in suspense: has he reached the end of the path that separated him from the light or will he fall back into his own? Felt the least regret in thinking of the family of these criminals . By bringing in a ghost of his past, one question remains in suspense: has he reached the end of the path that separated him from the light or will he fall back into his own?
One thing is certain, this episode opened up an essential part of Oliver’s story and his vulnerability was very hard to bear for our nerves. How will he manage this immense emotional torture but also physical? While he was proudly looking at his tattoo, now he must see it as a sign of his own darkness . Will the Team find the words that will alleviate her guilt and pain? In any case, it was an excellent episode offering us an entire dive into what led Oliver to put on the Green Arrow costume.
