Welcome back Arrow!
3 February 2018 | by highmarksreviewsSee all my reviews

With the last two seasons blowing the finale and the episodes leading up to it, there was a concern for "Lian Yu". Thankfully, that fear can be put to rest, as Season 5 ends on quite possibly Arrow's best episode ever. It's not just the action, returning characters or the flashbacks that complete it (though all those fired on all cylinders too), it is the end of a ten year journey. Josh Segarra and Stephen Amell gave powerhouse performances and even though it was not Star City under threat, the stakes felt high and personal. A truly epic finale with real emotions and a solid cliffhanger to make fans say: "Did that just happen?"
