Why Black Canary Can Certainly Die on ‘Arrow’

    Honestly this is the best thing that can happen to Arrow. I’ve always said that what makes this show is the original squad Oliver, Diggle and Felicity and dynamics within that group is what made Arrow go from decent to fantastic! Laurel just doesn’t fit into this show anymore since season one. This season it was made even more evident that she’s not a factor because she’s had NO storyline of her own, resurrecting Sara was all about LOT set up, no job because we haven’t even seen her do her lawyer thing but for five seconds in the premiere, everyone else we got to go home with, Oliver&Felicity, The Diggles, hell even Lance, but we rarely see Laurel at home, we see more of Thea at their apartment then her. If they’re not willing to give you a set that’s a huge sign that your job is ending. I’m looking forward to seeing the show reinvent itself which every show has to do when you’re this long in the game and that includes dropping dead weight and focusing more on the cast members who deserve screentime, Diggle and Felicity are just now getting focus on their arcs and development, and I’d love to now see more of Lyla and more of Lyla with the team, especially Felicity and Thea.

    I totally agree with you Kendall and of course, with Alyssa! Arrow has a larger number of viewers than Green Arrow has readers, that is the true! The writers need to follow the story for those viewers and not only for the comic’s readers! We love OTA, they are the Arrow’s essence and they need to be the focus of the show, always!

    I think you are misinterpreting the statements you see as evidence of impending doom. I think it is Captain Lance that dies (she can protect herself.) I think she fakes her death so she can be the Black Canary full time. I think Barry is at the gravesite – in street clothes – because he is there out of respect for a fellow police officer (who since he is “disgraced” will not get the honors due to him) as well as being there for his friends. Lance’s death makes sense from a plot point because he is the witness who put Darkh in jail. Best way for Malcolm to get Darkh out of jail is to kill the only witness. Since Merlyn would have then killed two Lances Laurel will have an extra revenge wish against him. Nyssa being at the funeral also makes sense because Lance saved her in a fight at the end of Season Two or Three (I forget) as well as accepting her and Sarah being together.
