Warning: spoilers forward for Episode 7 of Arrow Season 6, referred to as “Thanksgiving.”
Oliver’s life bought a complete lot harder in “Thanksgiving” due to a variety of issues that instantly hit him unexpectedly. FBI Agent Samanda Watson, who has been trying to amass evidence that Oliver is the Inexperienced Arrow all season, lastly made her transfer on him and had him arrested. On the Group Arrow entrance, Oliver discovered that Diggle had been dosing himself with unlawful steroids to compensate for nerve injury, and he was out of fee because the Inexperienced Arrow. On high of that, Cayden James returned to the combo with Black Siren as his crony, and so they brought about lots of hassle for Group Arrow at a really inopportune time. All of that stated, one good factor occurred: Thea wakened from her coma.
Poor Oliver has been missing his baby sister all season, even when Willa Holland has solely appeared a few instances. He actually wanted a win by the tip of “Thanksgiving,” and Thea waking from her coma might be the very best factor that might have occurred to him after a few hellish days. Sadly, Thea’s sudden awakening might not truly be nice information for Oliver in the remainder of Season three. In any case, the timing of her sudden emergence from the coma was… effectively, handy.
The in-universe rationalization for Thea’s sudden awakening is that her medical doctors have merely been biking her by means of totally different medicines to see what would possibly work to drag her out of the coma, and so they lastly hit on one which labored: Zolpidem. Felicity went on to say that Thea woke as a result of a triumph of neuroscience reasonably than a miracle. Principally, the circumstances of her return to the land of the acutely aware might level towards an out of doors affect stepping in to wake her up.
The 2 greatest villains of Season 6 to this point have been the genius Cayden James and the drug dealer Dragon; one or each of them may have devised a solution to wake Thea up from her coma so as to strike at Oliver. In any case, he is each a outstanding determine in public because the mayor and the unique hero on the Arrow-verse vigilante scene. A goal is at all times going to be on his again, and Thea is a simple solution to strike at him.
What extra handy solution to harm Oliver than to wake his little sister up from a coma after which hurt and even kill her? Even when she wasn’t woken by a villain, she’s nonetheless a goal. I am beginning to hope that Thea runs away to hitch Roy as quickly as she’s effectively once more. Colton Haynes is likely to return in Season 6, and Oliver talked about him in “Thanksgiving.” Thea deserves a contented ending, and eloping with Roy could be the closest she may presumably get.
After all, Thea’s return to consciousness may very well be unhealthy information for Oliver insofar as he could also be severely distracted. He is been ready for Thea to get up, and he could also be making an attempt to give attention to her within the not-too-distant future. He could also be spreading himself fairly skinny as mayor, substitute Inexperienced Arrow, and doting brother. The passage of the anti-vigilante invoice (largely due to Cayden James conning Group Arrow into beating the stuffing out of pretend cops on digicam) signifies that his life will likely be extra difficult in most areas. Who is aware of? Possibly Thea was affected by some unhealthy guys whereas in her coma and she or he’ll be a double agent. Thea waking up this near a midseason finale may imply very unhealthy information. Nothing good ever occurs for Oliver in midseason finales.
We’re nonetheless a few weeks from the midseason finale, nonetheless, as subsequent week’s episode will air on Monday night time as a part of the giant “Crisis On Earth-X” crossover. The four-part occasion kicks off on November 27 at eight p.m. ET, and it’ll come to an finish on November 28. You’ll want to tune in to The CW to catch the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl in action together.
