Arrow has continued to be one of the strongest shows on TV during its run, which now enters the fourth season. If you’re not up-to-date, both the synopsis for season four and the trailer are going to ruin a lot of the wealth of changes that season three wrought for Team Arrow. I haven’t heard anything official, but I assume next season will be the last for the show. It’s format has been to intertwine a year in the life of the evolving Hood, Arrow, Green Arrow with that of one of the five years Oliver Queen spent away before returning home. Extrapolating that out, next season will be the loop closing, covering the last year he was away and leading us back to the series premiere. As much as I would love to see it go on, it seems that’s where the writers have been heading since the beginning. We still have miles to go, though, and this trailer promises another awesome run when Arrow returns next month
After defeating his most formidable foe to date and riding off into the sunset with longtime flame Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen (a.k.a. The Arrow) left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe?
