The eight-year long saga of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen's quest to do right despite many, may hardships is finally at an end. Now, I can't say this is one of the best seasons. Though there is a main goal and threat in this, we get mostly stand-alone episodes and the threat is more to the side. You don't get the sense of urgency brought by a lot of other the previous main Arrow villains who were constantly in motion. But this is a good season and way to wrap-up the show.
If the last season was about tying up Oliver's story in Star City. This one is about tying things up in general. Oliver (Stephen Amell) travels the world and encounters many familiar faces. The finale is the one the show deserves and is really satisfying.
I like that Diggle's wife Lyra (Audrey Marie Anderson) gets more screentime. She's been likable but never given a lot of time to shine. Same goes to Laurel Lance/Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). She is center stage now. It is nice to see Cassidy whose character's purpose was originally very different and supposed to be the lead's romantic interest, which didn't go as planned, gets writing that fits the actress' strengths far better. Unfortunately, Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez) doesn't get as much exposure as the rest of the cast. I wished he got more of a sendoff.
If you've made it through the far, I think you'll be satisfied.… Full Review »
