When Arrow premiered in the Fall of , it was an exciting new development in the realm of superhero television. Here was a dark, grown-up show focused on a lesser-known DC character. But not only did it catch on like gangbusters, it launched multiple spin-offs over the years, creating its own extended Arrowverse. The first few seasons of Arrow were fantastic.

This was a bold move, and one that was clearly born of much internal reevaluation and behind-the-scenes planning. What does this show look like if its primary reason for existing is sidelined for a third of the season? - Sign in.
