Trivia

When Laurel tells Quentin that there is a major threat to the city, he replies "It must be May", referencing the month when the finale of the season takes place, each time with a major threat to the city. It is also known as "sweeps" when the Nielsen Company processes their ratings. It is often during this time that TV shows will do something extreme to draw more viewers. See more »

Quotes

Assassin: I have weapons. And I have no virus. Ra's al Ghul awaits you on the Starling City dam. He wishes to be in your presence as your city dies.
Oliver Queen: And what makes him think that I won't just stay focused on saving my city?
Assassin: Because he knows of your deluded belief that you can defeat him in battle. And you know as long as the Demon's Head lives, he will continue to threaten your home.

Why, why, why!?

Agh, this is frustrating. I love Arrow. When they do well, they do amazingly well. This finale has a lot building up to it, a lot of characters coming together, all the twists being revealed. All of this sets up for an exciting and intense finale.

With each fight, each moment of life or death, each rush to figure out the next move against Ra's, the suspense builds. Yet suddenly, annoying and useless bits of drama interrupt the mood. I wish I could say this finale is perfect, but the writing just brings it down. Constantly we are barraged with all the characters and their drama, as if they were all children - perhaps the show should be called "Ollie and his 8-year-old Friends"...

They manage to make even John, who has consistently been a likable favorite, turn into an irritating character to hate. Add Felicty, Laurel, Lance, etc. to that list. We understand, for the 100th time, the angst they feel over the smallest things, and their inability to focus on what's important - the city is about to die, yet their selfish, personal needs come first apparently. And Oliver has to suffer to that because he is the hero.

Frustration aside, it's a great episode. Once again, they manage to handle an abundance of characters well, giving everyone a decent amount of time to develop themselves. And they are great at throwing hints at future options, or just comic teases in general. One other complaint I would have is how they mostly give villains such anti-climactic and easy exits from the show. The "use my hand to take the blade and surprise you" move has been done a lot, to say the least. The bits with Tatsu and Maseo I actually enjoyed a lot, their arc I found to be much more mature and refreshing. Unfortunately, they are not the protagonists so they are brushed off quickly. That being said, it's an interesting finish to the season. A lot is building up for the next season with many characters stepping up into the light. Let's just hope they don't keep introducing senseless and repetitive drama into the show, which they will.
