While “Arrow” may have sagged a bit in the middle (which is surely what you would have to expect from a 23-episode season of a superhero show, the past several weeks have built up momentum faster than a speeding bullet. Now, we are set for a season finale on Wednesday where the stakes are as high as high can be. If just one thing goes wrong, the entire world for Oliver Queen could fall apart. He has to find a way to stop Malcolm, protect the Glades, deepen his new-found relationship with Laurel, and also make sure that nothing happens to Felicity in interrogation.
Oh, and there is also another problem that may be forgotten at times: Tommy. Speaking to Zap2It, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg promises that we will see the continuation of a plot that should make some fans of the comics super-exited … in addition to those learning the story for the first time:
“There are two very powerful scenes for Tommy and Oliver coming up in the finale … Fans of the comic book feel like they know where Tommy’s story is going, and then there are other people who had no expectations of Tommy until the show was on the air. One of the trickiest things that we had to do as writers was satisfy both parts of our constituent. I think people will be shocked and satisfied at the direction of the Tommy and Oliver relationship at the end of the season.”
So what stories are probably going to have to wait until season 2? Don’t expect much yet on the subject of Laurel as the Black Canary, as we’re still not at the position yet in the story for that to happen. Meanwhile, the Roy Harper storyline will pick up much more steam then with Colton Haynes as a series regular.
For now, we want to hear below what you want to see in the next season of “Arrow.” Meanwhile, be sure to click here if you want to watch a full trailer for what could be a great way to wrap things up until fall.
