Team Arrow Motivations - the key to understanding where the characters will end up (I think...)
Time for some speculation! My track record isn’t great with these types of posts - I’m wrong more than I’m right - but I couldn’t resist adding my thoughts on the finale, in particular, the “Schism” that is due to occur. I’m in the camp that believes the schism will be within Team Arrow itself - that the finale will reverse the composition of the team in the premiere, i.e. Felicity and Oliver will remain and Thea and Diggle will leave the team.
I think the key to understanding the issues behind this schism, lies in the character’s motivations for being heroes.
I was struck watching 4x17 that we had several scenes in which major characters - Thea, Felicity, Oliver and Curtis - discussed their motivations for (and against) suiting up.
