Screener Squad: Arrow (The Final Season)

Arrow Final Season review


**WARNING: THIS WILL HAVE SPOILER DISCUSSIONS** Now that the flagship CW DC universe has come to a close (kind of) and we’ve had some time to think on the denouement, it’s time to give our in-depth analysis on Arrow’s final season. It’s hard to summarize everything that happened since you’ll need knowledge of the multi-series Crisis on Infinite Earths arc for full context, but it mostly follows Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in his efforts to tie up the loose ends surrounding Lian Yu and Nanda Parbat, stop the new Deathstroke Grant Wilson (Jaime Andrew Cutler) from destroying Star City, and helping the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) stop the Anti-Monitor from destroying their universe. No pressure, right? Allen and Daniel ‘Dogget,’ who were the only people on the crew still watching the show, take the lead as they see where this season excelled, where it faltered, and if it effectively tied up eight seasons of story plus crossover material.
