Emiko’s True Calling Teased In A Preview Of Next Week’s Arrow
by Erik Amaya
Emiko (Sea Shimooka) is not the justice-seeking badass she seemed to be as the New Green Arrow. And while she might be blood with Oliver (Stephen Amell), her allegiance is to Dante (Adrian Paul). Sure, it led to the removal of Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), which we should all be thankful for, but it is only a matter of time before she turns on Team Arrow. And yet, if this preview for next week’s episode is to be believed, Oliver and the others may already be anticipating the issue as Emiko becomes the Red Arrow.
Meanwhile, this week’s episode proved just how spectacular the 2040 story really is. Katherine McNamara is just magnetic as Mia and Ben Lewis’s William continues to be a delight. It’s a shame the series cannot pivot to this storyline on a weekly basis as Team Overwatch unites to stop a future version of the Undertaking. It’s just more interesting than anything happening in the present, even if Archer is about to matter in that part of the story.
Arrow airs Mondays on The CW.
