While there’s a lot of focus on one character, we see bits and pieces of a few other things of importance. I love that they are throwing in so many things for long term readers like me, but you don’t have to know them to follow the story.
After eight seasons, launching a universe of shows and a new era of superhero tv, and some truly amazing crossovers, the flagship show of the CW-verse/Arrowverse, has come to the end of the road. Oliver Queen sacrificed his life during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and now it’s time to wrap up the loose ends.
I tend to like both underdog and obscure characters. I also have a real fondness for the original Teen Titans. Putting those two things together, it shouldn’t be any shock I count Roy Harper among my favorites.
Arrow continues its eighth and final season/farewell tour as we get to visit more things from the past. The show is impressively managing to move the story forward while giving curtain calls to elements we’ve seen before.
I have been disappointed in a lot of this season of Arrow. I’m finding the split teams story long and drawn out and often poorly written. “Doppleganger” finally shows signs of improvement in this slump.
