Finale Season: ‘Arrow’ Does Flashbacks to the Very Beginning

Finale Season

That’s right, it is finale season and we start with ‘Arrow’. This season has kept us guessing, and been surprise after surprise. Even Stephen Amell (Arrow himself) has said this is the best finale in the shows history. With flashbacks being a prevalent thing, it will finally catch us up to current times. We may even get a glimpse of stuff we have never seen before.

“We’ve managed to hopefully stick the landing on it in a cool way that allows us to see both some of the moments right before we first met Oliver in the pilot, where he launched that flaming arrow and it lit up that signal fire, and also maybe a little bit after as well, some of the more emotional moments that we never got to see in the pilot,” Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle tells Entertainment Weekly.


We finally get to see all the lines connect, and see where the next season could possibly take the team. We will also get to see the complete Oliver origin story,  something we have been waiting for all five seasons.


Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city. Though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.

‘Arrow’ airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
