With Season 4 coming to a close we look ahead to what may be in store for Team Arrow going into season 5.
Stephen Amell isn’t saying much about the season 5 villain for Arrow, but he is saying a little. The actor told Variety the following when asked about the major villain for season 5:
“I’ve heard that our big bad, our villain, is something that you can really only do once you’re in the fifth, sixth or seventh season of a TV show…As far as I know, they don’t have superpowers. I’ll tell you that.”
Well this is certainly good news. Arrow was at its best during seasons 1 and 2 when the villains did not have super powers. Sure then introduction of the League of Shadows and R’as Al-Ghul helped push a story line and bring back characters for spin off shows. However, Seasons 1 and 2, which were based in realism were better stories, more action and way more compelling. The question is what enemies does Oliver Queen have that do not have super powers. Hopefully the powers that be will give us a gift and Deathstroke will return to Star City
