If you haven’t watched Arrow’s season finale yet, be warned that this post has spoilers.
Most of the finale dealt with Oliver figuring out how to defeat Darhk. When Star City starts to go crazy with looting and fighting, Oliver calms everyone by giving a speech that instills hope. Darhk later takes on Oliver and a crowd gathers, telling Darhk to leave their city. The hope of the people helps Oliver to activate his power to fight off Darhk’s magic.
Without his magic, Darhk can’t do anything but fight Oliver and he loses. He doesn’t believe Oliver will kill him because he’s a hero, but Oliver proves him wrong.
Once Darhk was taken care of, I was waiting for the big hook for next season and was left confused. Team Arrow broke up. Only Oliver and Felicity are left. I’m hoping this is temporary because I really liked the team.
Oliver’s speech in the middle of the chaos was enough for him to be named interim mayor. The finale ended with him getting sworn in.
Where is the story going for Season 5? I have no idea. Even though I’m a bit disappointed with how Arrow ended, I still like the show and will be watching next season.
