First of all I'd like to apologise for spelling Darhk wrong in my previous post. I blame my sausage fingers.
Now I haven't seen last nights episode of Arrow that aired in the States, but thanks to certain websites not knowing the meaning of the fricking word SPOILER!, I already know what happens.
So, below is my theory on what I think will/should happen at the end of Season 4, granted its a long way off yet but that's why it's just a theory at the moment.
Last nights episode will be discussed so if you haven't seen it yet then Sammy the Spoiler Squirel is your last chance.
When last nights episode ended, Oliver had proposed to Felicity but then she ended up being shot and her fate left dangling until the show returns in January.
Felicity isn't dead!
It would be too obvious a choice for them to kill her off, plus I like Emily Bett Rickards to much to believe that would happen. As I mentioned in my previous post, I think the person in the grave that we saw in the flash forward is Samantha Clayton.
The reason for this is that it would be unexpected as everyone assumes that it will be a main character the bites the big on. Even though the character of Samantha is a small one, her death could have a big effect on most of the main cast. I don’t think that she will die at the end of the season. I think it will be in the last 4 or 5 episodes leading up the finale.
Here’s how I think it will go down:
Mr Darhk will find out about Oliver going to see Samantha and will investigate why. Once he finds out there is a child involved and that said child is Olivers, I think he will be the one to order that she be killed. If you think about it, the stuff that Darhk has done so far has been quite twisted and he looks like he enjoys seeing someone in pain. What better way to hurt your enemy, than turning his own son against him by blaming the death of his mother on him.
This would also make sense with Barry turning up at the graveside, especially if Oliver still hasn’t told anyone else about William and Samantha. Barry shows up would link back to what he told Oliver about the consequences of him travelling through time and resetting things.
As a result of the above I think Thea’s bloodlust will come back. I think there will be a big fight between Darhk’s men and Team Arrow and Thea will again find herself face to face with Darhk. I think that they should fight and Thea uses the fact that she is immune to the effect that Darhk has on people to her advantage. I would love it to end up that she is the one to kill Darhk but in doing so becomes tied to the statue thing that gives him his powers. This would make her either leave as she is worried that she won’t be able to control it or make her evil and a threat for next season.
Finally, I think it would be quite awesome if in the last episode after everything has finished that William ends up being adopted by Oliver. With Oliver already telling him that he knows the Flash I think it would be awesome if he follows Oliver one day and either sees Oliver changing into the Green Arrow costume, or he follows him into the lair and sees the whole team. Would be quite a nice way to end the season and would also be a little nod to the possibility of him one day becoming the Green Arrow himself.
In regards to other characters at the end of the season I think that if Darhk does die then it will release Diggle’s brother from whatever hold is over him but he will sacrifice himself to save Diggle in penance for all the horrible things that he has done since working for Darhk.
I do think that there will be one more character that doesn’t survive the series and that is Captain Lance. Especially because it looks like he is going to start a relationship with Mamma Smoak. Just as he looks like being happy he will be offed when Darhk finds out that he has been betraying him by working for Team Arrow.
Laurel will survive the season I think but if her dad does die then it could turn her back to her addiction with drugs and alcohol.
Do you agree or disagree with any of the above. Give me a shout if you do.
That’s all for now.
See you soon.
