The fourth season finale of Arrow ended on a fairly low-key “Schism,” disappointing a throng of fans who tuned into see if a time-turning Flash twist one-night earlier would ripple out across The CW’s DC dramas. The Arrow finale went by with nary a mention of Central City, but star Stephen Amell thinks the emerald archer will be back to basics in Season 5, rather than dealing with time-travel twists from another series.

It must be May if Star City stands on the brink of destruction, but Oliver Queen’s hometown is far from the only major locale in jeopardy by this week’s Arrow Season 4 finale “Schism.” A new extended trailer for the May 25 closer sees Damon Darhk’s nukes once again on the warpath, while Star City erupts in an all-out streetfight. You know … again.
It’s that time of year again, as Flash and Arrow gear up for their respective second and fourth season finales, following this past week’s Legends of Tomorrow closer. The full photo sets see Barry in “The Race of His Life,” but what “Schism” might Arrow be hurtling toward in the final showdown with Damien Darhk?
We’re just one hour away from the close of Arrow Season 4, though this past week’s “Lost in the Flood” certainly dropped a notable clue on our Season 5 big bad. Now, Stephen Amell himself teases some surprising details of our mystery man (or men, or woman!), as well some hope that Season 5 will fix some of the complaints in recent years.
We’re just hours away from learning how Patrick J. Adams’ mystery DC hero will take us into Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, but those speculating the figure could be an early (and thus unrestricted) identity of Green Lantern are in for a blackest night. Not only do executive producers debunk the Alan Scott rumor, but Green Lantern remains off the table for TV outings.
It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzled Arrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
This week’s episode, “Lost in the Flood,” goes to great lengths to make sure you understand that the writers are very smart and making Biblical references to Noah’s ark. Also, Felicity gets wrapped up in a less-than-welcome family reunion. The episode was directed by Glen Winter, from a script by Oscar Balderrama, Brian Ford Sullivan and George Papp.
Both Supergirl and The CW still have plenty of questions to answer over the big move this fall, though as any fan would surely guess, Kara’s network move will afford the chance for one giant crossover with The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. To wit, The CW has released its DC-heavy schedule, teasing the epic crossover to come.
My understanding of TV's Arrow comes largely from reading ComicsAlliance's weekly recaps. Because of that, I assumed that --- Flash and Legends of Tomorrow crossovers notwithstanding --- it wasn't the kind of show that really lent itself to battles against cybernetic spider monsters. Immortal assassins and hooded vigilantes, sure, but cyber-spiders? That's right out.
But now, I have been proven wrong. In the next chapter of the digital-first Arrow: The Dark Archer comic, Malcolm Merlyn is going to be facing off against a reasonably terrifying giant mutant spider. And in case you didn't know, it's a story co-written by Carole E. Barrowman and John Barrowman, the former Doctor Who star who plays Merlyn on the show, and illustrated by Daniel Sampere. Check out a preview below!
Funko's second Legion of Collectors subscription box brings all your favorite characters from DC's television universes together mostly in time for their season finales. Though Supergirl ended in April, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow are all nearing wrap dates on their respective seasons. Thus far, Funko's DC efforts have all been tied to the cinema or television worlds, and that trend will continue into the next box, which is themed around Suicide Squad. You would think eventually Funko will get around to linking these boxes to the comic universe (as they have with Marvel a few times), but perhaps it's for the best to focus on the one consistent constant in DC's stable right now and hit up the Rebirth Universe later.
For now, all we actually have is the DC TV box, and it's pretty good.
It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzled Arrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City. But for this belated installment, Agents of SHIELD recapper Ziah Grace has stepped in to take Matt Wilson's place.
On this week’s episode, “Monument Point,” Team Arrow makes some questionable choices, Felicity and Captain Lance are both going to be looking for new jobs, and a returning villain calls Thea “mommy,” which weirds everyone out. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode, which was written by Speed Weed and Jenny Lynn.
