Ar­row Sea­son 6 (5)

The Galloway News - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

Thank­fully Ar­row’s sixth run con­tin­ues its im­me­di­ate pre­de­ces­sor’s re­turn to more re­al­is­tic sto­ry­lines.

Stephen Amell’s vig­i­lante hero is put through the wringer as both friend and foe test his morals and loy­alty to ex­treme lev­els.

The sea­son suf­fers, though, from a lack of great vil­lainy, with the true big bad char­ac­ter only re­veal­ing him­self more than half-way through.

Some of the frac­tures within Team Ar­row also feel slightly con­trived and tend not to last long, mak­ing Amell’s co­horts come across as whiny trou­ble­mak­ers.

It all ends on a high, emo­tional note, how­ever, with a crack­ing fi­nal cou­ple of episodes that leave one heck of a start­ing point for sea­son seven.
