The synopsis for Arrow’s final episode has been revealed, and it’s safe to say we should have our tissues at the ready.
Arrow has cut a path of dominance through the world of superhero television the likes of which has never been seen before. A flag-bearer for an old staple of TV, it promised the return of good old-fashioned superhero fun – and, aside from a dodgy season, that’s exactly what it gave us.
However, with the show’s eighth season set to return for its outing of Crisis On Infinite Earths this week, the end is nigh for the originator of The CW’s Arrowverse as, following that, it will air just two more episodes. The first of them will be the backdoor pilot episode for potential spin-off series Green Arrow and The Canaries, while the other will be the series finale a.k.a. the final ever episode.
After much anticipation over the episode, titled “Fadeout”, and its final scene, The CW has released the official synopsis. You can check it out below:
STEPHEN AMELL SIGNS OFF AS THE GREEN ARROW; EMILY BETT RICKARDS RETURNS FOR THE SERIES FINALE OF “ARROW” – After eight seasons, and the launch of countless superheroes, the series wraps up the story of the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell). Emily Bett Rickards returns as Felicity. James Bamford directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Beth Schwartz (#810). Original airdate 1/28/2020.
The most striking thing about the synopsis is, of course, the fact that it lets us all know that it will be wrapping up the story of the Green Arrow. Naturally, there’s a lot of online speculation as to how Oliver Queen’s story will come to an end, and if his role in the final two offerings of Crisis On Infinite Earths will play into that.
Moreover, as the synopsis revealed, the episode will also feature the return of Emily Bett Rickards, who portrayed Felicity Smoak on the show for its first seven seasons – the first of which was in a recurring capacity before she was promoted to a series regular in Season 2.
Arrow has been a game-changing staple of TV for nearly a decade now, and the idea of a world of superhero TV without it just seems too peculiar to fathom. But, like they say in the movies, it ain’t over till it’s over.
With that in mind, sit back, relax, enjoy and appreciate the remaining episodes as the show builds towards it’s closure-filled final offering.
