The CW's Arrow closed out Season 3 this past week with the surprisingly final "My Name is Oliver Queen," but for many a creeping sense of indirection has permeated the emerald archer's arc this year. Now, we attempt to pinpoint where Arrow went astray, including a character absence that may surprise you, and what hope we might find for Season 4.

The shared universe of Arrow and The Flash has spawned once again, now that The CW's DC Legends of Tomorrow has dropped its first trailer. If you're not content waiting until 2016 however, we combed through all the comic crevices for every easter egg and secret we could find by DC's full Legends of Tomorrow sneak peek!
Earlier today The CW's Arrow and Flash spinoff Legends of Tomorrow peeled back the veil of secrecy for a first look at its cast, and now the entire curtain has come down. Resurrected Canaries, Vandal Savages and shrinking Atoms await in the first official trailer for The CW's Legends of Tomorrow!
NBC’s cancellation of Constantine set off the familiar scramble to find the series a new home, though showrunner Daniel Cerone seemed optimistic The CW might look to add to its growing DC stable, with whom crossover talks have already occurred. Not so it seems, as The CW may not be Constantine’s salvation after all.
Both Arrow and The Flash will marvel at their own magnificence in giving birth to the time-traveling Legends of Tomorrow spinoff, and while the DC drama has plenty of mysteries to unpack, we’re crossing two off the list. Not only do we at last know who Caity Lotz is playing by the show’s first photo, but so too has The CW specified when the Legends of Tomorrow will premiere. No, it’s not tomorrow.
All season long, Arrow has steadily dismantled its core characters and story conventions to allow Oliver to ascend to the throne of Ra's al Ghul, and tonight's Season 3 finale "My Name is Oliver Queen" took things way, way further. Not only is the Arrow officially no more, but several others fell, and two characters may never return to Starling City. You know, until Season 4.
In some ways, tonight’s episode of The Flash functions as a true season finale. If my instincts about next week are right, next week is really meant to set up next season rather than put a capper on this one. I’m not sure “Rogue Air” was actually a particularly great episode of The Flash in total, even if the last five minutes featured some pretty spectacular superhero action. The rush those minutes provided, capped by the seeming victory over Barry’s arch-nemesis, might lead one to feel more positive about the episode as a whole. But whether or not you enjoyed this episode or not, one thing seems certain: Eobard Thawne had to be stopped tonight so things can truly go to hell next week.
Arrow Season 3 will wind down this week as Constantine frantically scours the tube for a new home after its NBC cancellation, but could the two end up intertwined? Stephen Amell has expressed an interest in doing a crossover with DC’s demon-fighting detective, which apparently has almost come to fruition before.
Well, we didn’t need any superpowered time-travelers to see this one coming. Given the breakout success of both Arrow and The Flash, soon to culminate in another Season 3 crossover, the much-hyped teamup spinoff is officially a go at The CW. Are you ready to meet DC’s Legends of Tomorrow?
Anyone who caught last night’s Arrow installment “This Is Your Sword” may have been somewhat alarmed by the final minutes, in which … well, everyone seemed to die. Apparently, The CW intends to continue the series after all, releasing a full-length trailer and photos for next week’s Season 3 finale “My Name Is Oliver Queen.” FINE.
