Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the mid-season finale of Arrow, stop reading now! READ FULL STORY
Tag: Arrow (1-10 of 23)
As we head into the holiday season, it’s time to cherish the final weeks before all of our favorite television shows go on their winter hiatuses. As much as it hurts to say goodbye, mid-season finales mark the (second) best — behind actual season finales, of course — time of the year for TV.
So this week is all about catching every possible mid-season finale that you can, and then running to the theater for a little Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper reunion.
All times listed are Eastern.
Bonnie & Clyde, 9 p.m., simulcasted by A&E, Lifetime, and The History Channel
Emile Hirsch stars as Clyde Barrow and The Borgias‘ Holliday Grainger plays Bonnie Parker in this two-night miniseries about the ’30s crime couple.
Sleepy Hollow, 9 p.m., Fox
John Noble returns as Henry Parrish, who helps Ichabod contact Katrina. Long story short: They end up releasing a monster from purgatory. Or, if you’re not one for monsters, the episode will also tell us more about Ichabod’s recently revealed son.
Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town, 8 p.m. ABC
When it comes to getting in the holiday spirit, this classic story of the legend of Santa Claus, featuring the voices of Fred Astaire and Mickey Rooney, is the perfect ending to a long day. Bonus: Pair it with a nice cup of hot chocolate.
American Country Awards, 8 p.m., Fox
Country fans won’t want to miss performances by Sara Evans, Sheryl Crow, Florida Georgia Line, and more. Did we mention it’s hosted by Trace Adkins and Danica Patrick?
R. Kelly’s Black Panties hits shelves
So R. Kelly has a new album. And it’s called Black Panties.
Arrow, 8 p.m., The CW
The mid-season finale of Arrow promises action, more Barry Allen, and a death. Basically, everything you could ask for. And if you’re watching Arrow, you might as well stick around for the mid-season finale of The Tomorrow People at 9 p.m. on The CW. Unless, of course, one shocking finale is all you can take in one night.
Scandal, 10 p.m., ABC
Thursday night is the mid-season finale jackpot. From The Vampire Diaries to Grey’s Anatomy, Parenthood, Reign, and the always shocking Scandal, you can’t go wrong. However, Liv dealing with her father (and Sally dealing with her “sin”) is at the top of our list.
American Hustle in theaters
David O. Russell’s newest film stars the likes of Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner. It’s the The Fighter-Silver Linings Playbook collision we’ve been waiting for.
College Basketball, 5:15 p.m., ESPN
If you’re a fan of college basketball, this NCAA match-up between Kentucky and North Carolina is a must-see.
Revenge, 9 p.m., ABC
Revenge‘s mid-season finale is all about Emily and Daniel’s wedding. And if we have learned anything, blood shed is never out of the question in The Hamptons … not even on a wedding day.
With only one episode left before Arrow‘s midseason hiatus, everything is finally coming together… but also falling apart. Let me start at the beginning: Amidst a very foreshadowing lightning storm — The Flash. Get it? — Brother Blood’s first successful super soldier broke into a Queen Consolidated warehouse. Although Quentin and his men couldn’t quite piece together the crime scene, they were in luck. The new guy in town might suck at making it to train stations on time, but he’s one heck of a brainiac. Everyone, meet Barry Allen. Barry, meet everyone. READ FULL STORY
I feel powerless. As I type this, potentially criminal casting conversations could be taking place concerning one of my favorite shows, and I can do nothing about it. Correction: I can do one thing about it, and that one thing is write. So call me The Scribe, give me a fancy new mask, and throw me into the action, because I’m ready to save Starling City.
Okay, maybe that was a little dramatic, but superheroes need big entrances. Here’s the situation: My team has detected some casting rumors surrounding Arrow and the potential addition of Nightwing. Apparently, word is going around

Batkid, a five-year-old leukemia survivor named Miles, hit the streets of San Francisco on Friday, where, thanks to the work of Make-A-Wish, he fought evil until he wasn’t needed anymore. But in today’s world, Batkid isn’t the only superhero. So what happens to the rest of the vigilantes when Batkid cleans the streets of all crime?
That’s exactly the question Arrow‘s crime-fighting threesome had to ask themselves. After nearly nine hours of searching for some bad guys, they came to the conclusion that Batkid had wiped them all out, so instead they decided to go grab a bite to eat.
Arrow‘s Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, and David Ramsey posted a video to Facebook that showed Oliver, Felicity, and Diggle, saying thank you to Batkid for making their job a whole lot easier. And just when we thought today couldn’t get any cuter …
Watch the cast of Arrow thank Batkid in the video below:

This week, my Tuesday and Wednesday nights looked eerily similar, and not just because I was sitting on my couch eating Chinese food and watching television.
On Tuesday’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the team headed to Russia to defuse a very large, very dangerous weapon. The very next night, my Arrow peeps discovered they needed to rescue one of their own from — what do ya know? — Russia. Plus, by the end of Arrow‘s hour, I was listening to talk of a serum that could be used to create an army of super soldiers. For a second, I was positive I was back in the S.H.I.E.L.D. universe talking about Centipede. But I wasn’t! I was on a boat in the middle of the ocean — in the middle of a universe where “superheroes” didn’t exist. What was happening?!
So after I realized that these were, in fact, two very different shows, one of which lives in the Marvel universe (S.H.I.E.L.D., obviously) and the other in DC Comics, I started to get a very bad headache. Not to mention that while reacting to both shows, I now have to deal with an annoying number of period-filled acronyms — S.H.I.E.L.D., A.R.G.U.S., H.I.V.E — not cool, guys. Basically, after having this realization, I only had one option: A compare-and-contrast, seventh-grade-style.

After that hour of television, I have two dominant thoughts/feelings. 1) I have always loved Olicity, but I didn’t fully understand my love of them until about six minutes ago, and I am IN. 2) Does anyone else watch both Arrow and S.H.I.E.L.D.? Because between trips to Russia, super serums, and acronym that use a bunch of periods, I’m starting to get deja vu. And if you don’t watch S.H.I.E.L.D., ignore that sentence, and let’s get into some Russian business. READ FULL STORY
Unlike everyone currently living in Starling City, we don’t have to keep their life-threatening secrets. Instead, we get to talk about them, write about them, and even tweet about them. Crazy, right?! So there’s only one thing we can do right now: Celebrate that freedom in detail. Let’s dig in! READ FULL STORY
This week, the news bulletin in Starling City was all about a gun epidemic, in which a gang leader who referred to himself as The Mayor decided he wanted to create chaos in order to rule The Glades with the barrel of a gun. Basically, the earthquake taught him that the “guy with the biggest gun wins.” That might be true, but Oliver and the gang weren’t about to let him get his hands on the biggest guns in the city. *insert pun about Diggle’s biceps here* READ FULL STORY
