I’m stunned. I never would have guessed it. For months, I’ve predicted that Thea would be in the grave on Arrow because I thought she was the most expendable, but I was wrong. If you haven’t watched the last episode of Arrow, don’t read any further because there are spoilers.
Andy Diggle feeds Oliver and company information about Darhk and Merlyn. Oliver figures out that something isn’t right about the info Andy is giving them and doesn’t trust him. John gets mad at Oliver for distrusting his brother and it comes back to bite him.
Oliver and company end up at Iron Heights after an uprising there. Darhk, of course, is trying to break out of prison. While at the prison, Andy turns on Oliver and company and gives Darhk the missing piece of the idol, which he needs to regain his powers.
At this point, I thought the writers were setting us up for John Diggle’s death, but nope. Diggle’s complete trust in Andy got someone else on the team killed.
If you remember, Darhk had told Captain Lance that he would kill Laurel if he were ever betrayed. Darhk made good on his promise and killed Laurel as soon as he got his powers back. That’s right, Laurel is in the grave.
I thought Black Canary was an integral part of the story, but apparently the writers disagreed with me. With the team down yet another member, I have to believe that another character will be introduced to take the Canary’s place. The next few episodes should be quite interesting.
Do you agree with the writers’ decision to kill off Laurel?
