The "Dodger" is officially my favorite Arrow villain-of-the-week and it’s not just the BSG fangirling talking (although, I did squeal a little bit when James Callis and Rekha Sharma shared their scene.) The Dodger got about as much background development as Oliver’s usual targets, but this might have been the first time I’ve watched Arrow and seriously wished that the bad guy would get away from our hero.
The Dodger’s bomb-collar extorted innocent people into stealing precious items for him so he wouldn’t have to "get his hands dirty." Felicity revealed that he was targeting valuables from a specific era, but we never really understood his motivation for collecting those particular items. This lack of development is a recurring problem with the villain-of-the-week characters on Arrow, but it was less frustrating for me this week because The Dodger was just so darn cool.
