Hi guys, these are things I like to see in the final season of Arrow before it comes to an end. After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), former protégé Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), metahuman Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). In the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver will find himself pit against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero. Here are some things I would like to see happen in the final season of Arrow.
Some Old Faces- I like to see the return of Walter Steele, Moira Queen, Robert Queen, Adrian Chase, Billy Malone, Agent Watson, Quentin Lance, and Peter Yorke. We never got to see Watson's reaction to Team Arrow being deputized by the S.C.P.D.(I think Watson regrets sending Oliver to Slabside) and as for Susan Brayden, I think she didn't pardon Oliver because of his work with the Bratva and killing Billy Malone, which made her loose good faith in him. I like to see all the plot holes no longer be plot holes. As for Yorke, I can see him crashing Oliver's funeral drunk and speak disrespect of our hero prompting Diggle to hit him in the face, knocking him out. I would also like to see Walter's reaction to Oliver's identity being revealed and of Oliver encountering a hallucination of a vengeful Billy Malone, after all, Oliver put an arrow in him and 'stole' his girl Felicity and Mia could have been his daughter. As for Adrian Chase, perhaps Oliver can encounter an alternate version of him that is Vigilante and be forced to work side by side with a man who likes the man who caused him so much suffering. I would also like to see the Earth-2 Robert Queen who is the Arrow powered by Mirakuru and see how Oliver reacts to meeting his father. I think most of the guards from Slabside, like Felton (Aleck Paunovic), would attend Oliver's funeral since he and Turner helped save them from Diaz.
Other Earths- On Instagram, I saw Stephen Amell watching old superhero movies like Tim Burton's Batman (1989) and Superman. I think Mar Novu will send Oliver to alternate earths to recruit allies like Earth-89 with Michael Keaton in it. I think that would work since Bruce (Earth-89) and Oliver (Earth-1) were once killers who were struggling to reform. I think Arrow could revive the Tim Burton Batman films with Burtonverse versions of Dick and Barbara. I also think Oliver will go to the Earth-90 Flash for help only for the Earth-90 Flash to be hesitant since Mar Novu destroyed his entire world, so I bet it's going to require some convincing.
A New Main Villain-While Oliver is away, the S.C.P.D. and Team Arrow are dealing with a new villain, perhaps it could be Onomatopoeia or everyone still dealing with the Ninth Circle.
Return of The Real Laurel-I know it's too good to be true, but what if the Laurel in the flash forwards, was actually the Earth-1 Laurel revived by her Earth-2 counterpart. Since Arrow has been known for making plot twists, I bet this would be a good one. It would be a good story line for Laurel to literally come back from the dead and adjust to the new changes that have happened.
Oliver's Identity-The writers promised a clean slate in the eight season. I would like to see Mar Novu return Oliver to Star City where his secret identity is still intact, where Agent Watson was never able to prove Oliver is the Green Arrow and where Oliver found some other away to defeat Ricardo Diaz without revealing his identity and was still in Slabside but got out while his experiences there are intact.
What do you guys think will happen?
