    When we last left Oliver Queen, he had finally unseated Ricardo Diaz from atop the criminal enterprise that had taken over Star City's government and commerce. But his victory required a significant personal sacrifice: To obtain the FBI's assistance in bringing down Diaz, he agreed to publicly confess to being the Green Arrow and plea guilty to the federal charges against him. In prison, Oliver will have to survive amidst many of the supervillains that the Green Arrow took off the streets, including Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Derek Sampson (Cody Runnels) and Danny “Brick” Brickwell (Vinnie Jones).

    Colton Haynes is back as a series regular, having recurred as Roy Harper during the first, second, third, fourth, and sixth seasons. After recurring last season, Rick Gonzalez and Juliana Harkavy have been promoted to series regulars for Season 6.

    Three of the infamous Longbow Hunters, mentioned in the final episodes of Season 6, will appear this season: Holly Elissa will play Red Dart, "a ruthless and precise killer." Michael Jonsson will play Kodiak, "a beast of a man with brute force". Miranda Edwards will play Silencer, "a master of stealth".

    I actually was in attendance for the Arrow panel at SDCC before its first season premiere. Can't believe we are now gone through 6 seasons, with the 7th coming up in the fall. Katie Cassidy was the most well-known person on that initial Arrow panel at that time.

    The decision to drag Diaz's story out is an albatross around the show's neck.

    The rest of episode would have worked better for me if the previous season hadn't burned so much good will with the B team.

    The prison stuff was compelling, as we see how Oliver reacts to a new environment.

    The twist with the cutaway scenes was good one:
    The cutaway scenes aren't flashbacks, or a parallel storyline. Instead, they're flash forwards, roughly twenty years in the future, with William all grown up and Roy Harper stranded or self-isolated on Lian Yu

    It explains how Colton Haynes can be a series regular when Roy is off with Thea in the present day.

    And because this exists in a shared universe where time travel not only exists but is not uncommon, anything can happen.

    I have mixed feelings about the premiere. Yes, the stuff with Oliver in prison is good, assuming it doesn't stay that way for too long. No one tunes in to a show to see the main character in jail week after week.

    The stuff with Diaz is so, so bad. He shows up at Felicity's house to kill her and doesn't? Why? Is that his character arc this season - to keep trying to kill Oliver's family? He's the biggest mustache-twirling villain the Arrowverse has ever seen. Tattoos that make him look evil? Check. Most raspy voice this side of Christian Bale's Batman? Check. Super bad attitude? Check. I mean come on. I know - beyond all good sense - that the actor is a series regular this year, but unless they kill him off and fast, this season is going to be one hell of a slog.
