overall though, like, season 4 of arrow is such a shitty season of television. nothing made sense. nothing in that season stuck. everything was quickly fixed in a matter of 2 episodes, except, obviously, laurel dying because marc guggenheim is a steaming pile of sexist shit.
- thea’s bloodlust has no meaning and she left for some reason?? - felicity nuked OVER 10,000 PEOPLE and felt nothing???? - oliver doesn’t even have a son anymore - everyone forgot laurel died 2 eps after it happened - why is curtis even there when he’s felicity 2.0???? - donna lied and is now a horrible person and her entire story is shit - they made us sympathize with the calculator, a villain??? - why was malcolm even THERE? - the oliver/felicity relationship was SUCH A JOKE. engaged after 9 eps, fake marriage after 16, for the dumbest fucking reasons - felicity’s a massive hypocrite, point blank period - the writers had no idea who was in the grave until like ep 16??? - they spent a whole episode with vixen destroying darhk’s totem only for it magically to be a thing again????????? - the entire back half of the season, especially the season finale, was embarrassing from start to finish - FELICITY MAGICALLY LEARNED HOW TO WALK AFTER TRYNA BECOME DOLLAR STORE ORACLE like literally horrible represenation - two series lows that focused on the Olshitty and the Smoakin Gang and yall cant see that yall are writing absolute horse shit - diggle and felicity both resolved their series long storylines but for some reason THEY’RE STILL HERE??? also anyone know why diggle reenlisted bc im sure the writers don’t - so many powerful women died like literally so many and for no reason - oliver randomly became mayor like???? that’s not how politics works but ok - darhk was done after punches lol - WHY IS LAUREL DEAD?? FOR FUCKS SAKE - thea isn’t even thea anymore i_don’t_know_her.gif - stop the flashbacks 2k16
PSA: It you can’t tell, I’m done with Arrow. I haven’t watched the last few episodes, but this past one was the final straw. Laurel Lance meant a lot to me and a large majority of people, and I’m not going to support a show that is so in love with its own pettiness. With that being said, I will continue to reblog gifs of Thea Queen, Laurel Lance, and general Arrow edits that represent pre-4.18.
Fuck Arrow. Fuck their writers. And specifically, fuck Marc Guggenheim.
