Spoilers Coming soon for anyone who hasn"t seen the Arrow Season 5 finale. [ Update : As the Season 6 premiere nears, more and more actors are confirming their status alive and well, including Juliana Harkavy in a recent interview with EW
, where she speaksto officially dress up as Black Canary. As a reminder, check the chances of survival of each major player since "Lian Yu "] The CW Arrow
wrapped up one of its best seasons yet last night with the explosive season 5 finale that ended many conflicts but which raised many other questions after the fact. If you need a reminder, be sure to check out Kayti Burt "> recap here
, but the basic thing you need to know is this: Season 5 ended with the suicide of Adrian Chase ( Josh Segarra ), triggering a massive explosion that destroyed Lian Yu Island. Oliver Queen ( Stephen Amell ) and her son were safe at the time, but little by littleAlmost all of the other members of the cast of Arrow were presumably trapped on the island and killed in the blast. Whoa. "Arrow " Season 5 finale recap: "Lian Yu " is really Exploding right now
Season 5 is "ended in style and with no indication of where season 6 is going to go. That"s a very good thing. Now, because Arrow has been renewed for a sixth season and because some actors have legally binding contracts here in the real world, the show obviously won"t completely erase 95% of its characters. However, while Arrow season 6 probably won"t be a full reset, this clever writing could allow the creative team to take the herd down, so to speak, if they see fit. Maybe not everyone anyway, there are changes coming to Arrow in season 6: the pater familias of the CW superhero series will first switch to Thursday night at 9 p.m. never, and there will be no more flashbacks to Oliver"s time on the island. Here is a look at the known series regulars who are contractually guaranteed to return n ext season, other than the usual suspects Stephen Amell , Emily Bett Rickards , David Ramsey , Willa Holland (who has suffered a reduced number of episodes this season), Echo Kellum and Paul Blackthorne , there is Katie Cassidy as Earth-2 Laurel Lance / Black Siren, Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez / Wild Dog, Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake / Black Canary and John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn on All Shows Through The Arrow Verse. Jack Moore as William Clayton and Audrie Marie Anderson as Lyla Michaels / Diggle should also be safe since they were off the island . Let"s see how they all stack up. Totally dead After spending some time on Team Arrow before his final heel turn , Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin ) doubled down on her nasty pursuits in her allegiance to Adrian Chase. This earned her a short-lived victory in the Battle of Lian Yu and eventually found herself locked in a cage. Even though the rest of our heroes, or the remaining villains, left the island before it blew up, I doubt anyone else stopped to let Evelyn out. RIP Digger Harkness ( Nick E. Tarabay ), who made a random appearance in this final, also quickly switched sides to ally with Chase and his alike, only to run into Malcolm Merlyn in the forest. And while there is no way to write Merlyn, who was standing on a mine that was about to explode at the time (having sacrificed to save Thea), I do Would not be surprised at all if Harkness met his match while facing the Dark Archer. Despite the nickname of his alter ego, I wouldn"t expect to see him return. RIP Also, RIP for Adrian Chase, perhaps the best villain of this series behind only Deathstroke thanks to an incredible performance by Segarra and some writing engaging for her character throughout the season. And pour one for all the faceless henchmen sent by Team Arrow this round. While the stuntmen will surely be back for Season 6, the engaged muscle now rests in Lian Yu"s smoldering remains. Probably not dead? Things get a bit more interesting in this category, which acts as the kind of gray area where writers can decide to keep convincing characters or reduce fat, so to speak. First, the al Ghul sisters, Nyssa ( Katrina Law ) and Talia ( Lexa Doig ) faced each other in the final and put their problemsdaddy at rest with Nyssa emerging as the Victor. However, Nyssa simply knocked out Talia; what she became remains to be seen. She could have died on Lian Yu, or she could have been imprisoned elsewhere, or she could have escaped into the shadows like the League of Assassins used to do. As for Nyssa, I guess she is doing very well. Slade Wilson / Deathstroke ( Manu Bennett ) is a tough call here. Still a standout character in the Arrow series overall, Wilson did get a nice redemptive arc in this finale, even though he looked a lot less imposing when surrounded by our heroes rather than to run into him. (I love Deathstroke"s fighting style, however, as he throws himself like a demolition bullet against hapless henchmen.) Fans would definitely love to see him more, but I"m not sure he does. . s in cartes. I could see Deathstroke, who has an intimate understanding of Lian Yu, lead the team towards the A.R.G.U.S. plane to the other side of the island, but ultimately sacrificing himself so that the others can survive. Keep an eye out for this possible arc in the Season 6 premiere.
