In this week’s Arrow, we get to see how things were before Robert Queen (played by Jamey Sheridan) takes his son out on a yacht trip that leaves Oliver stranded on an island that changes his life. Of course, it wouldn’t be an Arrow episode without these flashbacks, which are at time interesting and at other times, even more so. This would be that other time, I think.
The May 1 episode of Arrow, which is called “The Undertaking,” looks at a time before the accident that left Oliver on the island. It features the return of Colin Salmon as Walter, Jamey Sheridan as Oliver’s father Robert Queen…. and look, there’s John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn, too.
