Arrow Season 2 Review

Season 2 of Arrow was a surprising one. It really took everything to the next level and did some pretty unthinkable things. Arrow has officially become one of my favorite shows to watch and I can’t wait to see how season 3 plays out. There will be spoilers so if you haven’t watched season 2 I would suggest that you do before you read this. You have been warned… In season 2 Oliver has sworn to never take another life and changed the way he does things as The Hood. He doesn’t even want to be called The Hood anymore because it reminds him of all the lives that he has taken. 1

Everyone is back for season 2 and there’s even a new face in Team Arrow. Sara joins the group as Canary and helps Oliver fight crime all across Starling City. I really liked the chemistry they had together. They’ve both been hurt and broken for so long that they don’t know how to let each other in.

Slade is one broken dude in season 2.

The villain in season 2 is Slade and he completely stole the show. There is also the corrupt Mayor Blood that does whatever Slade ask him. There is so much corruption in season 2 of Arrow that you’ll be looking at every new character they introduce as a potential villain because Slade has eyes everywhere.

I loved how in depth season 2 got on the island. It was, once again, the best part of the show. We saw why Slade hates Oliver so much even though it was a little corny.

When Arrow focused on Oliver vs Slade it was firing at all cylinders. When it focused on it’s filler episodes it was kind of boring. Especially the episodes about Roy. I just don’t like him and since he has a even bigger part in season 3 I guess we’re going to be seeing him for quite awhile.

Thea is still a whiny brat, but I actually kind of like her now.

Felicity is still as awesome as ever and I’m pretty sure Oliver and her are going to hit it off eventually. It sucks that it didn’t happen right away in season 3 though.

City of HeroesSeason 2 was filled with some pretty touching moments. The one that sticks out the most was obviously the death of Moira Queen. I loved the whole scene. When she stood up to Slade and said, “you and I both know how this is going to end.” I knew what was going to happen even though I really didn’t want it to because I love Susanna Thompson.

Moira Queen is dead, but I’m sure we’re going to see some of her in season 3. You know how those flashbacks work in this show. It would be a shame if we don’t see her though. She’s one of the reasons why I watch the show every week.

Season 2 of Arrow was filled with big moments. I thought the season 1finale was weak when compared to the season finale of season 1, but I still enjoyed it a lot. I remember giving season 1 of Arrow 7/10 because I just didn’t feel the “it” factor in any of the episodes of last season, but I definitely did with season 2.

If you’re looking for a great superhero show to get into look no further than Arrow.

The Verdict: 8/10

    Appreciate it!

    1. It really was. I honestly had no idea she was going to get killed like that. I kept hoping that Oliver would get up and do something, but there was nothing he could do. It was definitely the most powerful moment of season 2 in my opinion.
