    • Apology tour – why does he have to apologize? To Diggle, yes. But to the newbies? No.
    • Gives Diggle a Green Arrow suit
    • Rene – thought thug at first; judged you too much; you’re a good man
    • Quentin – trust me; I feel bad about Laurel 1, so I will protect Laurel 2; reminisce about arrest, lie detector
    • Dinah – Please keep Black Siren safe; you’ve done a great thing putting vengeance aside
    • With info, FBI can take city back
    • Hospital: tells Quentin he learned how to be a good father because of him
    • Arrested. To camera, “I am the Green Arrow.” Gives speech about how he needs to take responsibility, but the city is strong and needs to keep fighting; Star City still needs saving
    • If escapes, will arrest everyone
    • Says good-bye to William; has Lyla put Felicity and William in protective custody until Diaz caught

    • Called in the Longbow Hunters – 3 guys – League afraid of them
      • ‘Arrow’: Who Are the Longbow Hunters? (17 May 2018) [http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/05/17/arrow-season-6-finale-longbow-hunters/]
      • A team of supervillains who debuted Green Arrow (Vol. 5) #31 from July 2014 in the storyline “The Outsiders War, Book 6: Spoils of War”. The volume was part of DC’s New 52 era. Created by Jeff Lemire, the Longbow Hunters was assembled by Richard Dragon — that would be Ricardo Diaz’s comic book counterpart — and was comprised of Count Vertigo, Brick, Red Dart, and Killer Moth.
    • Black Siren sends him into the river
    • Alive
  • Anatoly
    • Gets caught being Oliver’s ally
    • Surrenders; tells Oliver about Diaz meeting Longbow Hunters
  • What we got right –
    • Quentin dying by saving Black Siren
    • Oliver lost (Diaz didn’t win, which is what Michelle thought would happen)
    • Oliver out as GA, prison (Chris)
    • Team Arrow kisses and makes up to fight Diaz
  • Didn’t like? Episode and/or whole season
    • Michelle: Sara in episode for less than 3 minutes; what was the point? How come the FBI didn’t help Star City until now? Is the US government awful in the Arrowverse? Lame “Captain America: Civil War” ripoff storyline. How did Diaz do all of this?
    • SP –
      • “Hoss” I mean really. I hate that term and how much it’s used. Also. All if forgiven between Rene and Oliver?
      • Longbow hunters.  Really? Out of nowhere? And we didn’t get to see them much
      • I don’t see how this could have been a series finale
      • Little to no Flashbacks. We knew this going in but it really hurt the series
      • No funeral for Quentin…and it’s not really even possible. Memorial, yes. Funeral. No.
      • So who is the Star City Mayor? Agent Watson? Seems self-serving
      • No shirtless scenes
      • So Oliver spends the entire season in prison or even part of it and gets out….then what? He is outed as The Green Arrow.
      • “You have failed this city” missing a bit
      • What happened with the startup?
      • Fractured Team
      • Dinah Ruined
      • Wedding in the Cross-over (reception in cross-over)
    • Chris –
      • Black Siren arc was dumb all season long.  Redemption arc i never bought into.
      • Wasted guest appearance by Sara.  How does she miss getting to see her Dad, she has a timeship?
      • Nobody cares about secret identities anymore.
      • Forgetting that Ollie is a competent fighter.  He doesn’t need a team.
      • no mention of Talia all season
      • no deaths of consequence when Lian Yu blew up.
      • Rene got ruined in dumb civil war
  • Did like? Episode and/or whole season
    • Michelle – The last two episodes had a lot of action; Anatoly’s alive; Thea had a good exit; Diggle and Lyla
    • SP
      • E2 Laurel Lantz/Black Siren – Katie Cassidy
      • Ricardo Diaz/Dragon – Kirk Acevedo
      • James Caden – Michael Emerson
      • Sister Wives/Nyssa al Ghul – Katrina Law
      • Cross Over (because of LoT and Supergirl)
      • Tommy Merlyn/Christopher Chance – Colin Donnell/Wil Traval
    • Chris –
      • Crossover was fantastic
      • Slade and Nyssa return
      • Setup for Supermax story. It could be great.
  • S7 predictions?
    • Michelle – Roy comes back, first words are “Thea sent me.” Diaz gets captured quickly; otherwise, Felicity will be gone too long, and the show can’t be without Felicity and Oliver most of the season. Diggle head of ARGUS, Roy, and NTA not enough to carry show; has to be resolved by crossover or the crossover deals with this mess. There has to be a better villain or maybe not one big bad all season.
    • SP –
      • Oliver gets roughed up in Prison
      • Oliver gets out of prison and puts on the hood again
      • Oliver beats up bad guys and defeats Diaz / Unknown enemy
      • CW cancels Arrow….and maybe some other shows.
    • Chris –
      • Diggle is Green Arrow and Roy comes back to support him when he hears Ollie is in jail.
      • Ollie is out of jail in 2-3 episodes. If they have balls it will be at least ? the season even ½.
      • presidential pardon for the crossover

Part 1: The Plot, Themes and Characters

  • What was the overall theme? What was the link to the episode’s name?
    • Docket No. 11-19-41-73
      • Oliver’s case number
      • Reference: The character Green Arrow first appeared in More Fun Comics #73, published in November 1941. That’s right, “Docket No. 11-19-41-73” refers to Green Arrow’s first ever appearance. The story, “Case of the Namesake Murders”, is written by Green Arrow creator Mort Weisinger and introduced both Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and his sidekick, Roy Harper/Speedy.
      • Tonight’s ‘Arrow’ Title Is a Major DC Comics Easter Egg (3 May 2018) http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/05/03/arrow-season-6-episode-21-dc-comics-easter-egg/
  • Fight scenes and stunts
    • Diggle parachutes into Kasnia
      • Shoots a lot of people on his way slowly down
      • Grenades; exploding truck goes over his head
      • Rescues Chance
  • The Trial – why do trials in the Arrowverse only happen in a day?
    • Trial on TV
    • Judge is in the pocket of Diaz
    • Prosecutor Alexa Von Owen not in Diaz’s pocket
    • Oliver refuses deal
    • Curtis not subpoenaed
    • Black Siren says she would testify to Green Arrow’s identity; Diaz wanted her to say Oliver was GA during Quentin’s interview
    • Felicity thanks the Newbies for showing up. *Ugh*
    • Raisa knows!!!!
    • Diggle late
    • Parade of Perjurers:
      • Dr. Elisa Schwartz: I didn’t see who GA was when BC injured
      • Diggle: 2012-16 I was his bodyguard, kept him safe. List of strange injuries.
      • Dinah: Drug dealer she killed in Hub City; she pleads the 5th
      • Felicity: Oliver tries to stop her from testifying; she does anyway; Van Owen brings up that he dad’s the Calculator, and if she wasn’t aware that her father had a secret, then she maybe she doesn’t know about Oliver; lies about not committing cyber crime
      • Oliver: Roy Harper not a vigilante; I know who GA is, but won’t reveal identity, even if he has to go to jail; has to tell the truth about not being on Lian Yu for the whole 5 years; if lied to public about those 5 years, then lying now
      • “Tommy Merlyn” bursts in during Oliver’s testimony (cool and dramatic, but falling glass could have hurt people)
      • “Tommy Merlyn” – I am Green Arrow; I don’t want someone else to ruin their life to protect me. I faked my death because of what Dad did. Rene and Diggle free “Tommy” after he’s arrested; “Tommy” turns out to be Chance
      • Diaz has Chance’s CIA file – bug in bunker; Cayden James intel
      • Laurel – Tommy is Green Arrow
    • Rene: doesn’t want Oliver to go to jail
      • Willing to break plea deal and go to jail
      • Ready to say Oliver isn’t GA, then Diaz comes in with Zoe; Oliver nods to Rene, and Rene tells truth
      • Has the idea to use Chance to be the judge
      • One good idea makes everything okay now
    • Oliver tells Jean Loring the truth; she wants him to have his “I am Iron Man” moment and highlight how he has saved the city; he refuses because he doesn’t want to put a target on his family; thought one day the mission would end and he could have a regular life after
    • Oliver tells Felicity to go to ARGUS protective custody if lose trial
    • Oliver tells William the truth; Felicity will make sure William becomes a good man
  • Trial ends
    • Verdict: Guilty
    • Loring calls for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict
      • Definition: reversal of a jury’s verdict by the trial judge when the judge believes there was no factual basis for the verdict or it was contrary to law. The judge will then enter a different verdict as “a matter of law.”
  • Quentin and Laurel (and Diaz)
    • Quentin – Laurel, you need to stand up to him
    • Laurel – maybe if your Laurel was smarter, she would be alive
    • Laurel – no poker face around Diaz; he notices she’s been different since burning guy; he chokes her
    • Laurel lies on stand, goes to Diaz, attacks; he has a thing that stops her
  • Diggle and Dinah try to knock Diaz around, but all of the cops on are Diaz’s side, so this was pointless
  • Diaz: Plan A didn’t work; Plan B – kill everyone

Replying to @StargatePioneer @LegendsofSHIELD

I liked the parts of #AvengersInfinintyWar that I didn’t sleep through. #NarcolepsySucks @CryptozoicKid liked how it started out,  but over all disliked it greatly.

 

Mr: Paracletes (DM) Two things I’m wondering. One, it the next Avengers will be called End game. Two, could Thanos’s motivation to reduce the number of lives, and since we never saw what exactly wiped out his people, if that could be used as a means of introducing Galactus later. Maybe he wanted to reduce the number of life on any given planet so anytime Galactus came to eat he would never be fully sated and eventually die off.

 

Adanagirl (DM)

Guess instead of erectile disfunction? Bruce has Hulk disfunction when he can’t change.
