Arrow’s sixth season provided us with countless memorable moments. Let’s take a look back at the 10 best moments of the season.

Season 6 of Arrow was undoubtedly the show’s most intriguing outing yet. While the show has previously delivered both outstanding and disappointing entries in its six-year history, Season 6 wasn’t as clear-cut as any of the ones that came before. Parts of the season were incredible while others were oddly infuriating.

But amidst the forced conflict, out-of-character behavior and unusual story arcs, there were some moments that will go down in history as some of the show’s finest. Although the vast majority of them were in the season’s second half, that doesn’t take away from these powerful entries.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the 10 best moments from Arrow Season 6.

10. Deathstroke battles his son

Early on in the season, Slade Wilson reached out to Oliver Queen for help saving his son, Joe. While the former villain was apprehensive about his friend risking his life (due to Oliver now being a father), once he made the request, he couldn’t stop Oliver from helping him. And just like that, the allies-turned-enemies-turned-allies-again set off on a quest to save Joe Wilson — beginning an epic two-part adventure.

But things didn’t go so well for Oliver and Slade as it turned out that Joe was actually part of the mercenary group they thought he’d been captured by. Thus, Oliver had to fight for his life against the rest of the group as an epic battle ensued between father and son. During that battle, the two men matched each other with each swing of their swords before Joe revealed that Slade had another son, Grant. And with that, Joe escaped.

This was an intriguing moment because, not only was it great to see Manu Benett back as Deathstroke, it was nice to see more of his backstory explored. This was the first time in a very long time that we saw him really emotional and it highlighted how much the show had missed his presence. Furthermore, the entire arc made for a refreshing change from the ridiculous Diggle as the Green Arrow arc. Let’s hope we see more of the Wilsons’ story explored in Season 7.
