Just finished up this past year of Arrow. And yeah, everything after "Crisis" ended up being a damn train-wreck, and I can't count how many times I shouted at the screen because the characters ended up acting deeply, deeply stupid, and deeply unlikeable.
Rene became particularly intolerable, because his folding under pressure and ratting out Oliver to the FBI started an avalanche of problems, and he didn't actually apologize for it until the season was wrapping up. How many times did he go "Don't think this changes anything, hoss."
when the fractured teams worked together? Three, four times? Then when it all goes straight to hell, he shoots at Oliver, and tries to take him out with an axe, and yet Oliver is terribad for putting Rene back in the hospital. LOL whut?
The less said about super-vengeful Dinah, the better, and they even ruined Curtis, with his "let's take out Diggle with his implant"
idea, which was beyond scummy. And yeah, I got pissed at the original team-arrow too. I mean, NOBODY could grow the hell up and work things out until the whole city fell apart? Really?
I couldn't stand Agent Watson, I couldn't stand Ricardo Diaz as a villain, and now it looks like I'll have to deal with his shitty presence again next season, and I overall just can't figure out what the writers were trying to accomplish here.
Arrow better get better FAST next season, or I'm out.
