Arrow - Season 4 Review

by iwantmycookies | created - 08 Oct 2015 | updated - 27 May 2016 | Public

Season rating - 7.5-good Highlight episode - Beyond Redemption MVP - Paul Blackthorne

The first half and a bit of this season was relatively decent with a terrific performance from Blackthorne in episode 4 and some great action choreography in Brotherhood. However, from the stupid Cupid episode onward the show spiraled into an atrocious final two episodes. The big death was emotional but completely pointless and Neal McDonough was a wasted talent and just devoid of any real motivations. Felicity became a terrible character that I once really liked, and her whole drama with Oliver really dragged down the show. The writing also became worse and worse with plot conveniences (Oliver's speech in the finale?) and a complete detachment from the main characters. The flashbacks were dreadful in every aspect, as well. This once great show has really dropped the ball and I'm uncertain on season 5.
