Fans of the DC Comics superheroes certainly have their fill of the shows that bring their adventures to life thanks to Batwoman, The Flash, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Legends Of Tomorrow and of course Arrow. Most of these shows have already had their season premieres and tonight it’s all about “Arrow” whose Season 8/Final Season begins tonight on The CW Network. The “Legends Of Tomorrow” will return in the New Year. Take a look down below for some S7 recap, casting and the artwork.
Season 7 Recap: In season seven, five months after Oliver’s imprisonment, Diaz has recruited the Longbow Hunters, consisting of Kodiak (Michael Jonsson), Silencer (Miranda Edwards), and Red Dart (Holly Elissa Dignard) for a new criminal agenda, including seeking revenge on Oliver’s loved ones and allies. After Oliver is released from prison, taking down Diaz in the process, he and the former members of Team Arrow are deputized and begin working alongside the police. Another hooded archer, revealed later to be Oliver’s half-sister, Emiko Queen (Sea Shimooka), emerges as the new Green Arrow, seemingly to fight crime on Oliver’s behalf. However, Emiko is revealed to be the leader of the Ninth Circle, a terrorist group that begins launching several attacks upon Star City, and is seeking to destroy Oliver’s legacy as the Green Arrow. Emiko kills Diaz. The season features flash-forwards twenty years into the future to Oliver’s now adult son William (Ben Lewis) who seeks out Roy Harper on Lian Yu, where they discover instructions left by Felicity leading them back to Star City. They discover more secrets, including Oliver and Felicity’s hidden daughter, Mia (Katherine McNamara), while they work to save the city from another attack.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I am still following the show, there is also a part of me that is happy that we have reached its final season. Don’t get me wrong about this because I have enjoyed a number of the characters that were introduced along the way such as Wild Dog, Ragman, The Flash and so many more. Of course there are also characters that I didn’t like the direction the writers took them since they were too far off canon like Prometheus, Vigilante and a couple more. Amell did a terrific job at the character and I am curious to see how they decide to end it. My only hope is that he returns as the character in some of the other shows. What do you readers think?
