The battle between Green Arrow and Richard Dragon has come to a head when Diaz took Black Siren hostage and this spurs Quentin Lance to take action that eventually cost him his life. Oliver goes after Diaz and needs the help of the FBI agent who wanted him behind bars after learning he’s the Green Arrow. It was an unlikely alliance. Unfortunately for Oliver, the battle between Green Arrow and Richard Dragon was anticlimactic as the villain ended up getting away.
The reason they did this is because they will introduce the Longbow Hunters for next season, something that Richard Dragon helped found. I suspect that Dragon will return next season. The show’s dynamic has changed in that Oliver has revealed to the world that he’s the Green Arrow so everything is laid out in public. The season ends with Oliver in jail and I wonder if they will go SuperMax for the 7th season.
The highlight of this finale was the meeting between Sara Lance and Earth-2’s Dinah Laurel. There was no fight, but just heart to heart talk. Sara didn’t fight in this finale, only because this is Team Arrow’s moment to shine as it wouldn’t be fair to them since Legends already had their season finale last month. I knew Quentin Lance would be gone and that the actor has moved on to another project. I want to thank Paul Blackthorne for 6 seasons of Quentin Lance.
Marc Guggenheim will also be stepping down for the next season and will become executive consultant. Things are changing in the Arrowverse and for the better. Good season finale overall.
