Season 5 Finale
Episode 23
Lian Yu

I'm posting my Season 5 Finale review in this thread. If you've read my previous post (look above), you will understand why there is no Season 5 thread for Arrow. Okay, with that out of the way, I will just say that overall, I found Season 5 to be better than Season 4. It wasn't hard. But it's still nowhere near as good as Season 1-2. Overall, I found Chase/The Throwing Star Killer to be a far more interesting villain for Oliver to contend with. Certainly a step up from Damian Darhk. With Chase, he has the skills to go toe to toe with Oliver physically and hold his own. But it's the physiological advantage he possess that makes him a far more interesting foe. Trying to break Oliver mentally was just fun to watch. Simply put, this season was a Chess match.

Now for the Season 5 Finale. Not only is this the best episode of this season, I think it's the best episode for the entire series. It's THAT f*cking good. For starters, we get the return of Slade Wilson / Deathstroke who made the first two season as good as it was. Seeing him back in his iconic costume made me giddy. Not to be outdone, we also see the return of Black Siren, Malcolm Merlyn, Nyssa al Ghul, Digger Harkness, and Moira Queen, who served up a very touching moment hearing Oliver was alive after 5 years. There was so much going on the entire episode and even the flashback sequence with Oliver going head on against Ivan Drago....I mean Konstantin Kovar (haha) was just as fun to watch as the current day story line. The ending was fantastic by blowing up the entire Island with all of Oliver's friends left in peril. A great Cliffhanger that all but guarantees every fan comes back to see what their fates are.
