Arrow was one of the most successful shows by CW to this date. They started with a bang and blew the audience’s expectations about the show. Initially, the elements that blew people away faded away throughout the series, but some of them were kept alive until the end. Here are some of those elements which made the show so great and kept it consistent until the end.
6. The Dark Tone
Arrow focused on realism more than its counterpart shows from DC and MCU. It kept a dark tone throughout the show, different from the usual light theme superhero show where everything was happy, and people often cracked jokes. This was kept alive until the end, even in the final season.
5. Its Message About the Past
Arrow had many themes throughout its run, but the most prominent is that the past affects what happens in the present. Almost all the characters shown in the show have some backstory leading to the present circumstances. However, they reversed it in the last two seasons, showing how the present affects the future.
4. Oliver Queen Always does the Right Thing
Oliver never needed to be a superhero; he was doing just fine before going to Lian Yu. After his time there, he chose to go back to his old life being a playboy or go back to pain and violence to protect the city. Every day he decided to protect the town and kept choosing to be the hero.
3. People Can be Better
Even after a dark tone, the show managed to keep the message that people can always be better alive. Oliver and almost all the characters across the show this message. It showed that people can always grow in maturity, morally or even just realizing their true potential. A clear example of this is Oliver, The Arrow, himself.
2. Focuses on Family Preservation
Arrow focuses on the family the most; both are important, whether blood or not. Through the course of many adventures, they had some intense shared relations, which are as strong as a family bond. This show highlights its importance and the relationship between the siblings and the parents.
1. Interesting Villains
Supervillains are crucial to any superhero show as they are the main character that the superhero must fight.
