    The Starling City Times: News and Media about Arrow

    I feel like this is all just a mess. Though something tells me I wouldn’t want to know what S8 would’ve looked like if it wasn’t leading to Crisis simply because of the likely ridiculous explanation they’d have to come up with to keep Oliver away from Felicity and Mia, assuming we’d still have Mia as a character and the FFs.

    Maybe the paradise dimension is sort of a compromise? SA gets a sort of death for Oliver, but fans will get a happy ending for him and Felicity?
  3. Maybe, it just seems phrased weirdly? But maybe that’s just me.
  4. Okay, that’s even worse than I thought. Oliver marrying Felicity and calling her the love of his life isn’t enough for some people? They really expect him to say Laurel or maybe a Laurel or just Black Canary (as long as it’s a Laurel), don’t they?
  5. I can’t believe someone asked that. What do they think, that after all these years of being all about Olicity, SA is suddenly going to change his tune? What do they expect him to say?

    Me too, and I’ll honestly be annoyed. (Probably mainly because of certain fans’ reactions more than anything.) it’ll feel like The Flash having those comments about Siren-X’s unrequited love for Earth-X Oliver: unnecessary. The show had its GA/BC in Oliver/Sara in S2. And considering how many Canaries there are now and therefore how little the title really means (I’m sorry, but anyone can be a Canary. Having a network of women fighting would be one thing, but having them all be Canaries? It seems to mainly make the title mean nothing/negate having to come up with code names), I see no reason to even throw in a nod to that romance anymore.

    True. I just always consider Z in that kind of example to be something that hasn’t been at least hinted at. For example, if, during Vigilante’s introduction, someone had guessed he’d be the “dead” boyfriend (with the ability to heal) of a character not yet introduced on the show who would later team up with villains not yet introduced but then be undercover. (I forget — did we know yet that Dinah would be coming in at all at the time? Was that “Tina” casting announced yet?)
  8. I definitely agree with this after last year when they had Iris not believe Oliver and Barry when they were telling her and the entire team they’d switched and then in the very next episode, it was all, “Iris knew!”

    Honestly the more I hear about Season 8, the less I’m interested. Yes, I want to see the returning guest stars. Yes, I want to see more of Oliver and Diggle’s bromance. But nothing else interests me, and it’s not even about the lack of Felicity/EBR. I wonder if it’s because it feels like so much of the show’s promotion is about the crossover, more so than the other Arrowverse shows. And that has nothing to do with the season setting it up. I just feel like it’s so much of “tease about a character returning in unexpected way,” 4 things about COIE — without actually saying anything, “tease about character returning in unexpected way,” 6 comments about COIE, “yes, we are bringing in adult JJ after setting it up last season,” 5 more comments about the crossover, “yes, we’ve promoted an actor to series regular,” more talk about COIE, etc. I feel like the only new information we really got was that S8 picks up a week (or a few weeks? I saw conflicting tweets) after the finale. Also, regarding comments about Oliver’s “death”/ending from today, I saw something about MG I think saying people are thinking X or Y and it’s Z and I hope he doesn’t consider Z to be living in a paradise dimension with Felicity just because that’s something everyone who isn’t going, “Oliver’s really actually dead!” has guessed.

    If? Really? I think the better word choice would’ve been “since” or “because.” “If” implies something could still happen. I suspect we’ll keep seeing articles like this even after Arrow is over.

    Both. And it wouldn’t be Birds of Prey. It would be called Black Canaries. And somehow they’d be able to tell which Black Canary someone wanted by the inflection in their voice. Also, it would totally be a comedy.

    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Final Countdown

    Arrow still hasn’t told me why this Laurel wants to be a Black Canary and couldn’t have just kept the Black Siren title and made it something good or come up with something new. (And then stand out from all the other Canaries in the future.) And I doubt it will in Season 8 either because it seems to simply be KC/LL must be BC. (And I don’t buy it if the reason is Star City knows Laurel as BC because what about Dinah? Also, SC wouldn’t care, if we’re being honest.)
  13. Those replies are gold. And just look at Dinah’s comments about Oliver, Felicity and William in the future and everything about Rene in the future. What does it say about those two that Laurel — a villain who got a half-assed redemption arc — is actually probably more loyal to Felicity (and therefore by extension to Oliver, if she feels like it probably, and Mia) than they are? But sure, that’s a team, if “team” is defined as “a group of people who all wear masks and may be working together or trying to kill each other/sending one another to prison for life/swinging an axe at one of the others/etc. depending on the scene.”
  14. I really love how supportive he is and how much he makes sure the world knows it.

    Yeah, it would make Oliver look awful and Laurel too, really, considering she knows about Mia and Felicity was the only one defending and believing in her in Season 7. It would make no sense to have a “redeemed” (since that’s how they view her now) character do that. Or he’s assuming the identity of another Earth’s Oliver? Whatever the reason, I hope they have him carry the ring with him in some way.
