Arrow season 2, episode 16, “Suicide Squad,” aired tonight. Read our recap and discuss the episode with fellow fans.

Oliver and the guilty conscience

The episode opens with Oliver having a nightmare about a bloodied Shado calling him a murderer. When he wakes up, he and Sara are in bed together in the Arrow cave. Unable to sit still, Oliver sets up a meeting with his Bratva connection, Leonov.

Oliver wants help finding Slade. However, Leonov wants Oliver’s help first. Oliver’s having none of it, though, and takes out Leonov’s guards before holding Leonov at gunpoint.

When Oliver returns, Sara is waiting. She tries to get him to open up, but he simply says he’s going to kill Slade and “make damn sure he stays dead.” But he has to find him first.

Diggle enlisted

When Felicity discovers Diggle keeping watch over her apartment, she tells him that if Slade wants to kill her, nothing will stop him so Diggle should go home. Once Felicity leaves, a text leads Diggle to a hotel — where Lyla is waiting for him in lingerie. Good morning, Diggle.

However, the happiness doesn’t last as they’re met by Amanda Waller on their way out. She wants to enlist both of them for a mission. A.R.G.U.S. has been tracking a nerve agent that is about to hit the open market, and its current owner is one Golam Kadir — a warlord whose life Diggle saved in Afghanistan.

Arrow season 2, episode 16 recap Diggle, Waller

We see in flashbacks that Kadir was a terrorist Diggle’s unit took captive, but when a sniper starting firing on them, Diggle killed the sniper before he could kill Kadir. Kadir ended up sharing intel with the American government and Diggle received a commendation.

With that history in mind, Waller wants Diggle to get his team into a fundraiser hosted by Kadir in order to get the nerve agent out.

That team consists of Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Shrapnel. (And is that Harley Quinn in one of the cells?) If team is compromised, the government will simply write them off — hence the nickname Suicide Squad. Diggle’s not interested in working with a team of criminals, but Lyla convinces him.

Following orders

In Markovia, Diggle manufactures a run-in with Kadir. Diggle implies that he’s turned to less than honest means of operation since they last met. Before the conversation can continue, Deadshot opens fire from a nearby roof, and Diggle knocks Kadir out of the way.

As Deadshot attempts to exfil, his ride, Shrapnel, flees. He’s not interested in working for the government and ignores Waller’s warnings, so she sets off a kill chip in his head. RIP Simon Tam.

In the aftermath, Diggle is furious at both the situation and Lyla for going along with it. However, the mission is still active, as Diggle got his invite to Kadir’s fundraiser.

Pushing people away

Back in Starling, Felicity is unable to track Slade, but she does get an alert for a robbery in progress. By the time the Arrow gets there, though, it’s over. However, he discovers a familiar mask with an arrow through its eye mounted on a nearby roof.

The next day, Oliver meets Leonov, who has Slade’s bank account number. Leonov, though, tells Oliver that if he takes the intel, they’re done. Oliver takes it.

As Oliver leaves the meet, Sara confronts him. She calls him out on the way he’s lost control since Slade appeared, including his nightmares about Shado. Oliver admits that he’s afraid of Slade getting to Sara to hurt him and tells her to stay away.

Gray areas

In Markovia, Diggle and Lyla arrive at the fundraiser and greet Kadir while Deadshot uses Diggle’s fingerprint to get in. While Diggle and Lyla hit the dance floor and start arguing, Deadshot heads for the nerve agent.

Deadshot finds it, but it’s far too big to transport. Waller calls in a drone strike and orders Deadshot to stay put while the rest of the team exfils.

Diggle, though, refuses to let innocent people die; he causes a distraction by calling Kadir a terrorist in front of the fundraiser guests. While they all leave, Kadir threatens Lyla, recognizing her from Afghanistan. However, Bronze Tiger appears and kills him. Meanwhile, Diggle goes after Deadshot.

Deadshot’s ready to die doing something honorable, but Diggle invokes his daughter and convinces him to live. But their exit is complicated by the fact that the drone was not programmed on Kadir’s estate but on Deadshot’s chip. Lyla cuts it out and the drone crashes.

Back at A.R.G.U.S., Waller is furious. She dismisses Diggle, who is just as happy to leave. Waller informs Lyla that the implants will be moved to the inmates’ spines for future missions. Meanwhile, Diggle walks Deadshot back to his cell. Is that compassion for your brother’s killer, Diggle?

Once Deadshot is locked up again, Lyla asks Diggle about them. Diggle is still struggling with what he just experienced and Lyla’s part in it, but he says he can’t stand losing her again, and they kiss.

Mending bridges

Back in Starling, Felicity finds the location of Slade’s bank account, and Oliver goes after him alone. But what he finds is a setup — Leonov with an arrow through his eye and videos of Shado projected against the wall.

Oliver returns to the Arrow cave, and tells Sara that Slade is too many steps ahead. He doesn’t know what to do. Sara says to let Slade come. “I’m not that easy to kill,” she adds, setting off alarm bells.

Arrow season 2, episode 16 recap Arrow

The episode closes with Oliver turning down a dinner invitation with the Lance sisters to visit Amanda Waller. They apparently knew each other in the past and had an adversarial relationship. However, Oliver’s only interested in her help finding Slade. She tells him that A.R.G.U.S. has been tracking a mercenary named Deathstroke.

What did you think of ‘Arrow’ season 2, episode 16, ‘Suicide Squad’?

‘Galavant’ cast thank fans for #MoreGalavant campaign

"So just dance, dance, dance."

4:30 pm EDT, May 25, 2016

Galavant may have been axed over on ABC, but the fans refuse to stop the beat — and the cast are getting down to it!

There’s nothing worse than seeing your favorite show cut off in its prime, but if there’s one thing that fans do best in moments of crushing adversity, that’s come together and use their voices in a cacophony. And Galavant fans? They want a third season of their little show that could and are campaigning for it to return.

That campaign has not escaped the notice of the cast, who came together to thank the fans in a video that you can’t help but move your feet to — and the rest of your body.

“It warms the cockles of my heart to see everything you’re doing to save our beautiful little show,” Timothy Odmunson says, at the top of the video — right before it launches into Justin Timberlake’s newest hit, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” and we’re treated to a montage of familiar and brand-new footage from Galavant’s stars.

Karen David (Princess Isabella), who has also been vocal on social media about the #MoreGalavant campaign, leads the charge — and has printed out everyone’s contributions so far. But don’t worry, she planted a tree to make up for all the paper that was used. Also shaking their tush is Genevieve Allenbury, who played the Queen of Valencia throughout Galavant’s two season run.

Other familiar faces from the cast include Robert Lindsay, Ben Presley, Mallory Jansen, Vinnie Jones, and Muzz Khan. Not to mention the titular hero, Joshua Sasse.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Galavant without some cameos — and this thank you video is no exception to that. Making their debut are Billy Boyd (of Lord of the Rings fame), holding a sign that proclaims, “You can’t eat this Hobbit!” and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, with his own “Galavanterrific” sign.

And, what better way to close out the video than with an appearance from Weird Al. “Well, that should definitely do it,” he proclaims. “I can’t imagine any network not picking up this show now that it’s a hashtag campaign. Feel the power of the hashtag!”

So, Galavant fans, get signing and start dancing. And here’s hoping Tad Cooper breathes fire again — be it on the stage, or screen.

This week’s twist on Game of Thrones was one for the show’s history books, and now the fans and creators are acting on their emotions.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones found Hodor dying (dammit Bran) as he held back the army of wights by holding the door. A significant death like this one naturally became a big topic of conversation online, with fans coming up with adorable yet depressing tributes to Hodor.

For example, viewers have been creating Hodor doorstoppers:

Interestingly, we couldn’t find any Hodor doorstoppers for sale on Etsy. Get on that, people!

Others have added Hodor to the ‘hold door’ button in their local elevator

On last night’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff ‘apologized’ for killing Hodor — but not for the reason you think:

Starz has decided that their original programming can compete with the other hot shows airing on Sunday nights.

Network CEO Chris Albrecht has told THR that they are planning on moving all of their original shows including Outlander, Ash Vs Evil Dead, and Black Sails — which currently air on Saturdays — to Sundays. The move will begin July 17 with the Starz series Power. Outlander will likely not move to Sundays until next season.

“Sundays are a prestige night and we feel our shows are definitely going to be very competitive, not just in viewership but in the attention-getting business on Sundays,” Albrecht said to THR, “So it made sense to move.”

Outlander and Starz’s other original series will be going up against tough competition, including AMC’s The Walking Dead and HBO’s Game of Thrones. Albrecht says part of the reason he wanted to move the shows was to make sure they were part of the watercooler talk on Monday mornings.

THR notes that Showtime’s original series typically get DVR’d, “growing 214 percent [in viewership] during the course of a week.” This would suggest that a lot of people aren’t sitting in front of a TV on Saturdays and want to watch the shows on a different day of the week. So, moving their programming to Sundays may not impact overall viewership numbers much.

Starz recently overtook Showtime as the second-most subscribed to cable channel. HBO still sits at number one, though all three are facing tough competition from Netflix.
