Arrow season 7 episode 18 return date: The home stretch

ArrowCurious in getting the Arrow season 7 episode 18 on the other side of checking out tonight’s episode “Inheritance”? We’ve got news on that, and a whole lot more, within this very piece!

Let’s kick things off here with a reminder that there is no new episode of the Stephen Amell series on The CW next week, as the network is embarking on its final hiatus of the season. This is something that many a longtime fan is familiar with at this point — after all, Arrow is a show that takes breaks. It gives you batches of episodes, a longer hiatus, and then another batch. It’s probably better than the hot-potato, on-and-off strategy that some other shows like NCIS employ, but it doesn’t feel so much like it in the moment when you want nothing more than to check out the latest adventures of one Oliver Queen.

Based on some of the intel that is out there at present, the most likely Arrow season 7 episode 18 return date is going to be Monday, April 15. That way, they can air the remaining five episodes in succession without any further breaks at all. That’s the best thing for the show, given that it means that there’s going to be a consistent run of new episodes without any odd sort of break in the story along the way.

As for what we’re going to see, obtuse as it may be we’re just hoping for answers and some big-time story progression. We saw this knowing that we’ve only got, effectively, fifteen more episodes of Arrow to go. It’s a tough pill to swallow for any longtime Arrowverse fan, and it’s going to feel incredibly weird that the remainder of the universe is going to continue without us continuing to get updates from Star City. No matter what, though, its legacy is absolutely cemented as one of the most-important shows of the past decade. It’s not often that you can look at the show and claim that it’s responsible for so many other shows at this point — think Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The Flash, potentially Batwoman, and you could probably even throw Black Lightning in there.

Where’s the synopsis?

Unfortunately, there’s not one out there just yet! The folks over at The CW are being a little cagey and not letting us get any sort of good scoop on advance just yet. That will almost certainly change, but not until we get a little bit closer to the episodes airing. (Our feeling is that by the time you make it to the end of the week, there will be a little more in the way of news out there. Cross your fingers for some juicy teases and some huge battles that could set the stage for the final season.)
