I went ahead and got this thread all ready so we can chat.

I cannot wait. Its going to be so awesome.

Black Canaray vs Black Siren, Taila vs Nyssa, Oliver vs Adrian... Just dead.

I wonder who Merlyn or Deathstroke will be fighting. What players are still on the board. Artemis and Taila's League of Assassins. So much is going to happen and go down.

Will Deathstroke turn on Oliver in the end? After it all goes down id like to see that along with him saying, " I keep my promises kid."

Diggen Harkness?

To be honest I don't see Evelyn as a threat to Oliver. Talia and Chase will be his strongest rivals on this final battle.

Well Harkness was in the cell next to Slade so he makes since in a way. Yea, Artemis isn't really a threat. I actually imagine that that will be who Thea fights now that I think about it.

I think Merlyn might finally die. Maybe Slade kills him because he's really the reason Oliver ended up on the island. Or I could see him dying for Thea.

Just a few more days and we will have the answers.

That ending was just cruel. Basically we have to wait till next season to even make it off the island alive other than Oliver and William. Also the irony in chase leaving all his minions behind to die as well. Bwhahaha

I can't even digest anything right now.

First live posting in a long time but here we go.

The episode that has been 5 seasons in the making it feels, since this is how the show started, Island wise. So great for this episode title to be named, "Liam Yu"
It's so great to see Slade Wilson back.

Not that happy seeing Evelyn. Never cared for her character but whatever.

So many great characters in this episode. It sort of feels like a crossover because of that. lol

Haha! her team left Evelyn.
Slade telling her that she should use her team more wisely.

Oh awesome, MM can fly a plane.
Why is it starting to feel like Meryln is going to die in this episode?

I love that Thea is talking with Oliver. And I agree with Thea here... they are orphan because of MM and Deathstroke....
Hope this turns out well....

Thea is going along with Oliver even if she doesn't agree here....

Slade and Felicity banter there.


Oh Felicity giving Oliver an just in case goodbye kiss... with this show, smart thing to do....
Nice little moment in what is definitely going to be an action packed episode!


Black Siren!
Siren, Quentin and Diggle! 3 more great characters! The list just keeps growing.
Rene and Drake....

Drake and Siren in the same scene.

Diggle has faith that Oliver will help them out of this....

Slade confused about Oliver's marriage choices. He missed a lot. Nyssa and Oliver didn't want to get married. lol

Slade the one giving the advice.
Slade telling Oliver to forgive himself for the bad that's happened.... he has to stop blaming himself.

Samantha saying she can't abandon her son.
Nice she and Felicity sharing a scene.

Merlyn and Thea scenes here....
Thea so through with Merlyn and Malcolm just wants her to know that he is doing all of this for her...
If only Thea saw what MM was doing on Legends of Tomorrow, trying to re-write reality for Thea can love him and Tommy can still be alive... so yes in his way he truly loves her as his daughter.

Oh Malcolm making a sacrifice for Thea.
I guess it's his way of showing how much he loves her... sad way it had to happen but a great interaction scene with Malcolm and Thea.

Well it did feel like Malcolm was going to die.....

Oh, the explosion happened. Well.. we didn't see a body, so he's probably not really dead right?

Oh a Shado mention, and Nyssa don't have time for the memory lane speech....

Slade, Oliver and Nyssa splitting up...
Nyssa doesn't trust Wilson... which is smart...

OHHH Deathstroke knocks out Oliver!! Call me not shocked.

Probably Deathstroke isn't really crossing Oliver? Maybe he's doing a double cross for a double cross?

Diggle sees Slade...
Yeah Oliver, you aren't suppose to trust the person who has never forgiven you dude. lol You should be smarter.
However, I don't think Slade is really betraying... or probably Slade had me fooled as well. lol I don't know.

I like that Thea and Felicity have this little interaction.
This is a great scene with them.

Nice that they are having a scene about crappy fathers but they still love them anyway.... for whatever crazy reason...

Curtis with humor? seems like bad timing.

Dinah Drake finally going by Black Canary.....
Nice, it wasn't okay for Sara Lance to go by Black Canary she went by the Canary but it's okay for Drake to go by it. Whatever. lol

Nyssa and Talia scene! a scene 4 seasons in the waiting!
Those are the days we didn't think we'd ever see Talia on this show...

Best assassin wins....

Let all the great fighting begin.

Nyssa can't kill her sister. As expected.

I knew that Deathstroke wasn't really betraying right now. It seems way to easy and I watched way to many show.

I love Chase theme song. Hopefully this isn't the last time we are hearing it even if I want him dead.

.
.
.
.
.

Always love great fighting scenes.

Black Siren better hold her own in this fight!
Don't need Black Canary 3.0 defeating Siren.

"You thought you could replace me, that's cute." I'm sure Laurel fans loved that quote since some feels Drake is replacing Laurel. This episode doesn't really change that feeling....

OH SHT! Quentin knows out Laurel. Awww.....

Oliver fighting scene in the present and the past!
I love Oliver's revenge here. Amell is so amazing in these action scenes!!

Can't wait to see the end of Prometheus....

Chase isn't telling Oliver where his son is...

Yup, I expected Oliver to kill in the Island...
He's changed now so he won't do it....

And he still doesn't know where his son is.

"That's who I was, who I was BEFORE. That's not who I am now."
"I'm done blaming myself."

Great job Oliver!!

Oh... Chase tells Oliver that his son, William, is dead......
I wonder if he's telling the truth or playing mind games again.


Oh this scene is great....
Stephen Amell acting in this scene.

Oliver shocking Chase here by being a better man.....

The Island is linked with explosives....

Luckily Oliver didn't kill Chase....
Hope that everyone gets out this Island alive!

And yup! Chase ain't getting off this Island.

Last segment of the episode! Not ready for it to end.

Oliver with that great Island wig. Haha!

Right where everything begin.


The chase for Chase is on from Oliver!
I love this dedication from Oliver here. Find your William!
Outplay this dude in his own game.

Arrow theme song.
This just feels intensified and big.

Oliver is punching the heck out of Adrian.

Oh. Seems his team is in a bad situation.

Yup!
Oliver knew the mindgames that Chase was playing....

Oliver has a choice to make. Either kill Chase or not kill him and he kills William...
Sadly I think Oliver will sacrifice his son here. This is so sad but it seems that'd definitely happen....

Shot him in the arm, Oliver!!! That wouldn't kill him......

Yup!!! Smart Oliver! he shot him in the leg! I knew it.

Finally someone is smart to not shot to kill......

Oh wow.

Flashback of Oliver and Moira. I didn't expect this at all. WOWWWW!! This is such a great moment!!

So great to see Moira again in any capacity. This is such an emotional scene since I watched the Pilot and to see this.... and just sad...
I didn't expect this.... this is one sad scene here....
Aww this is the first time Oliver really sort of broke down after 5 years on the Island.....

Chase shots himself in the head.

OH!!!!!
I'm assuming that somehow they all got out of the Island before it exploded...

You mean to say that Oliver recruited the very man who murdered his mother?


It's a pity that Adrian Chase is dead. He was the best thing about Season Five. Hell, I enjoyed him a lot more than the main cast. Although I must admit that I wasn't that fond of this finale.

I like the finale. It had all the right touching moments as well as action. Oliver has to be able to offer Slade some bit of redemption. He let go of his anger towards Slade where as Adrian never let go over his father. He did something adrianncould never do.


So how does most everyone survive? Either in the water somehow or maybe the argus prison acts as a bunker? No way the made it to the boat in time.

Frankly I was ready to be done with Arrow , just watch the finale . Finish the season . Now after the finale last scene , I have to watch start of season 6 ...

Need to think what chase was saying to Oliver, just before he killed himself .
Then the Island is blown up with supposedly everybody still on it.

Thoughts, I think Merlin survived the land mine . Obviously not gonna kill off the whole cast .. Yet does alternate universe canary survive, Nisa sister too ?

For anyone who never saw the Starz series Spartacus , 3 cast members where together on screen tonight . Slade, Nisa and other guy who was released with slade and most likely blew up with Merlin

Yea I was thinking Merlyn survived as well. He easily could have used Digger Harkness somehow to survive.

Maybe one or two people probably die but yea they all survive somehow.
