I’m not going to put spoiler space or spoiler text here, because frankly the more spoiled you get on this season, the better. It might make you less likely to waste your time watching it. I’m probably way behind the watching curve anyway, so there’s not much point. Your time’s already been wasted.
It was an appalling season. Olver and Felicity were on again, off again, engaged, then broke up “for good” because of the whole Oliver’s long-lost lovechild issue that he just couldn’t seem to do the right thing with. The Black Canary got killed. Damien Darhk and H.I.V.E. tried to launch all the nuclear missiles in the world, and all but one of them got diverted up into space. One went off, killing a few thousand people in Buttfuck, Off-Screen. Oliver ran for mayor, pulled out of the race, then got elected mayor when the bad mayor got killed. And bla bla bla bla, nobody cares.
I won’t bother going into it too much here. My good buddy Ilya wrote a nice piece on it, and I added my proper review and criticism there as a comment. If you want to chat about this show, the first three seasons of which were reasonably enjoyable, I recommend jumping over there to do it!
