After last week’s big cliffhanger, Arrow wrapped up its mediocre third season with a solid finale. “My Name Is Oliver Queen” was full of exciting showdowns and some fun references to the rest of the DCU, not to mention a happy ending. Yeah. The sun even managed to make an appearance. No more doom and gloom for The CW’s dark and gritty superhero? Season 4 might finally add some more color (you know, green) but this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen of the dar(h)k. More on him and the episode’s other easter eggs below...

Past Tense
When I heard that Arrow would be killing a character in the finale, I thought for sure that it was going to be Tatsu because of her involvement in the Suicide Squad movie, but she makes it out of “My Name is Oliver Queen” alive and returns to her life of solitude. Probably with her third of Akio’s ashes. Yeah, that was some pretty heavy stuff for The CW superhero show.

In general, the flashbacks this week were much better than they have been, mostly because Oliver was beating the crap out of people the entire time. And I’m not even talking about the torture of General Shrieve; I’m talking about the way he destroys Shrieve’s men. That was an intense fight sequence. A.R.G.U.S. Agent Amanda Waller was right, the man has talent. Having failed to protect Akio from the Alpha and Omega bio-weapon, Maseo leaves to become Sarab, Tatsu heads to a monastery and Ollie boards the Triton’s Daughter out of Coast City.
