Barreling into the darkness at a rapid pace is never wholly comfortable, even if you are just a witness to it. With each installment of season 4 the creative team at Arrow seems to be doubling down on Ollie’s commitment to the light and with each installment the narrative demands that life kick mud all over the team – what is left of it.  We have explored in detail the thematic balancing act the show has maintained between the scripted and intentional narrative and the implications that serve as undertones for the thematic heart of the show.

But there is also a time in every season where the creators want you to think the fundamental change has arrived in order to swerve the viewer for the sake of entertaining them. The problem I am now faced with as your weekly guide through Arrow season 4 is that with show it happens a few times each season and frankly, it is easy to be cynical and still get swerved.

For three seasons Arrow was a very dark vigilante crime drama full of bleak Nihilism and little hope. But for 14 episodes, Oliver’s commitment to the light and hope of a hero has yielded new and fantastic results for his new life. But in his failures, since the dawn of the show’s first season, comes his hardest lessons.

In what has been the best season of Arrow to date we have come a long way since the idyllic domestic life that Felicity and Ollie had made for themselves in the opener. In just 12 episodes prior to the latest installment we have seen Oliver and the gang put into practice the difficult lessons of trust and dependence on friends, forgiveness and redemption – not to mention a dirty battle with Damien Dahrk that has had more intrigue than an episode of House of Cards. The unnamed team members have been named and the new lighter tone for Arrow is working. Read more...

Yesterday we discussed the first episode in the second annual Flash/Arrow crossover event. We touched on the launching of a new show Legends of Tomorrow featuring the characters Vandal Savage, Hawkgirl and Hawkman – who debuted in the crossover episode named Legends of Today. That episode was a superhero team-up throw down show of historical proportions and we left a lot of the deeper explorations of theme and device on the side to celebrate this great event. Read more...
