It took me this long to watch the finale because I didn't care enough about what happened the previous week to remember it was still on.
Arrow was the worst DC finale out of all of them. It was more boring than Flash and less fun than Legends. Even though it wasn't the most stupid it was just lame.
They took the cheesy Hope and Speech Force solution from Supergirl and made it more nonsensical by using it to fight against supermagic, but tried to sell it without one ounce of the charisma or enthusiasm of Melissa Benoist.
Had a large scale fight that involved all Hives soldiers leaving their weapons and rushing in to punch people, for some reason. Why anyone would care when they could just stand around and watch the world burn is anyone's guess. They only had an hour or so left, they could have been doing something more fun.
Nukes that travel so slowly you can get your coat, travel by elevator to the top of a skyscraper and still have time to wait for it. Plus when 15000 nukes explode in orbit they do not make a sound, or a flash, or shockwave or have any effect apparently. They just vanish in a line of dialog and are never mentioned again. Like half the city falling in a hole.
The worst part of this episode was the same as usual. As I imagine Chloe Bennet is sleeping with a producer on SHIELD, Emily Rickards is probably spending a lot of time "rehearsing" with producer Marc Guggenheim. Felicity was in nearly every scene, had more dialog than every other cast member (possibly even Amell!) and then when everyone had left the final line of the episode (courtesy of, who else, Felicity) felt like a fourth wall middle finger to the audience.
"You thought I was leaving, too? Not a chance."
Maybe not Felicity, but a lot of viewers will be.
I will take what I said about Barry Allen all back if he actually managed to time travel reset this entire show next season. Otherwise I'm only going to be watching for the crossover events.
