Written by: Greg Berlanti, Wendy Mericle and Beth Schwartz

Directed by: Nick Copus

Aired: Wednesday 26th February 

Wednesday’s return of Arrow featured Sara’s connection to Sin, and Felicity coming to grips with another woman in Oliver’s life.

 

Arrow opens with a man walking into a building who is given instructions on the phone; another man soon joins him for they are tasked with stealing something in brief case.

 

The following scene shows Sara, Diggle and Oliver training with sticks while Felicity watches as Diggle hits Sara across the face, they all begin to compare scars, Felicity awkwardly adds that she has scars from having her wisdom teeth removed. Sara feels awkward attending a welcome party that Oliver is throwing her. Sara arrives with her parents where she sees Sin who gives her a hug much to the curiosity of Thea and Roy. Before the party starts, Detective Lance is called away, not long afterwards Sara and Oliver join him as the Arrow and Black Canary.

 

 Felicity is seen practising when Sara gives her a few pointers. Oliver follows with a “What are you wearing?” comment that displeases Felicity. He is intent on finding information on the skeleton key and the person behind the attacks.

 They go after a robbery in progress where they split up – Arrow heads for the bus saving both the bus and train from colliding, while Black Canary goes after the men. She lands a blow before she is under fire. Felicity is stumped by the man’s ability to control the networks and security systems.

 

A flashback scene shows a plane being show down, the pilot is wounded but is still able to talk. Oliver and Slade head off to get medical supplies while Sara talks to the pilot who hands over a picture of his daughter to her. In a later scene he dies.

 

Thea asks Oliver what’s going on between him and their mother, he lies insisting everything is fine, he even calls her Speedy to reassure her. Sara has blood from the mystery man and runs it herself, much to Felicity’s annoyance; she uses the information that Sara discovers to identify him as William Tockham. This is a trap for Tockham hacks the network Felicity uses and surges the equipment in the Arrow cave and everything kind of blows up.

 Oliver and Sara return to assess the damage but Sara tries to stay and help rather than got to Laurels dinner, Felicity tells her family is important and she needs to go. Felicity and Diggle take where she reveals that she is a little jealous about Sara’s abilities and a bit threatening now that Sara is a permanent fixture, Diggle calls her irreplaceable.

 

 At the dinner, Dinah reveals that she isn’t coming back to live in Starling City for she has someone, Laurel says that everyone should have someone and sees the look that Sara and Oliver share causing her to yell at Sara and leaves. Oliver follows and they argue, she blames Oliver for everything which Oliver calls her out for making it clear that he’s done with Laurel and that he had loved her for half his life and that’s it he’s done.

 

 Oliver discovers that Diggle is alone at the Arrow cave. Felicity has been missing for hours, but calls in to say that Tockham took the bait and she’s waiting for him at the bank. Diggle, Oliver and Sara show up at the bank, but so does Tockham and his men; Diggle goes off to turn off the gas main, Oliver fights the men leaving Sara to protect Felicity. The two women go after Tockham, who pulls a gun on them, Sara knocks Felicity to the ground, but Felicity uses the same virus Tockham used on her to zap his phone, knocking him out.

 

Sara patches Felicity up. She finally has a battle scar. Oliver talks to Felicity about how she has been felling, they finish taking with each other with Oliver cupping her cheek and tells her she will always be his girl.

 

Sara is behind the bar mixing drinks getting a job from Thea as a bartender. Oliver receives an omnious text to head home. Laurel shows up, the sisters talk with Laurel telling Sara that she went on that boat with her too and that she has been drowning for years, the two sisters share a sweet moment and reconciliation.

 Sin shows up and sees Sara crying. The two talk with Sara calling Sin her little sister. Sara pulls the picture she kept from the island given to her by the dying pilot, revealing that the pilot’s daughter was in fact Sin.

 

Oliver arrives home only to discover that Thea set him up to talk to their mother, Moira, who brings Oliver in to introduce the man she’s having a meeting with – Slade Wilson. The two men share a look, share a strong and tight handshake, and the episode ends on a brilliant cliffhanger.

 

Arrow returns this Wednesday with a new episode – The Promise

GRAHAM NORTON & ALAN CARR CONFIRMED AS JUDGES ON RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE UK 0 55

BBC Three has confirmed two of TV’s best loved presenters and personalities, Graham Norton and Alan Carr, will be joining RuPaul and Michelle Visage on the judging panel for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

Eight-time Bafta TV award-winner Graham Norton is no stranger to RuPaul’s Drag Race, having already appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars season two in the US as a guest judge in 2016. Whilst comedian Alan Carr is a long-time fan of RuPaul, having made his acquaintance when Ru appeared on his chat show Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.

Both Graham and Alan share a passion for the drag scene and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The first UK adaption of the global hit will showcase the most fabulous drag queens that the UK has to offer, and Graham and Alan will appear as rotating resident judges. Each week, they will join RuPaul, Michelle Visage and a celebrity guest judge.

For the grand finale, Graham and Alan will both appear on the judging panel alongside previously announced judge Michelle Visage, where together they will assist host RuPaul in crowning the UK’s Next Drag Superstar.

Graham Norton says: “Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy! I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!!!”

Alan Carr, says: “Wow! To be sat next to Michelle Visage and Mama Ru as a guest judge on possibly one of my all-time favourite shows EVER is a dream come true. I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store – it’s going to be sickening! *does death drop*”

RuPaul, says: “I was both shocked and delighted when Graham and Alan told me they’d be wearing tucking panties when sitting at the judges’ table. I told them it was not necessary, but they insisted. Now that’s what I call dedication!”

Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning, says: “I am so excited that self-confessed Drag Race fans Graham and Alan have agreed to join Ru and Michelle on our judging panel. Their immense wit and wisdom will be invaluable in ensuring the most deserving Queen sashays away with the title.”

2019 GRAMMY WINNERS ANNOUNCED 0 51

Dua Lipa, Kacey Musgraves and Childish Gambino were among the big winners at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Country-pop star Musgraves took home four prizes in total, including Album of the Year for Golden Hour. The singer-songwriter, who bagged the top prize over the likes of Cardi B, Drake and Janelle Monae, thanked her “sweet husband” during her acceptance speech, who she met and fell in love with during the recording of the collection.

Musgraves also picked up awards for Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance for Butterflies and Best Country Song for Space Cowboy. Golden Hour is the singer’s first Top 10 on the Official UK Albums Chart, debuting at Number 6 upon its released last April.

Meanwhile, Dua Lipa won Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording for her Silk City collaboration Electricity. The singer thanked her fans, “who have allowed me to be the best version of myself.”

Lipa also paid tribute to the “many female artists” in the category, adding: “I guess this year we’ve really stepped up”. The comment was a not-so-subtle dig at Grammys president Neil Portnow, who last year brushed off criticism of the lack of female winners by saying women needed to “step up” in order to be considered.

Elsewhere, Childish Gambino won Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year for This Is America, and Lady Gaga picked up prizes for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Duo Performance, the latter for Bradley Cooper duet Shallow from A Star Is Born.
