ARROW: SEASON FINALE RECAP
The buildup to the finale titled “Schism”, centered on the threat of nuclear destruction of Star City and Damien Darhk taking over with his own New World Order. With this real threat looming, you would think there would be a greater sense of urgency by Team Arrow. It’s not that they stood pat because they didn’t but there was something clearly missing. Yes there was a lot of action but not as much as you would think given the circumstances. The show suffers from too many flashbacks and not enough present day solutions.
Not sure what to make of Season 5 when Arrow returns in the fall. Unlike The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for that matter, their finales gave us something to look forward to and talk about throughout the summer with anticipation. Arrow on the other hand does give us something to talk about but with less hope or anticipation.
