If you were a fan of Arrow in its second and third seasons but think the show’s format has gotten a bit flat (present day threats dovetailed with flashbacks to Oliver Queen’s time on the Island) – then rejoice! There’s a least one thing you won’t have to deal with for much longer!

…That’s all to say, it’s doubtful many – if any – fans are going to be sad to see this storytelling crutch go. A full episode focused entirely on developing the characters, storylines, and action at hand would be a welcome change.
Arrow season 5 premieres this fall on The CW.
Are you among those that enjoy the flashbacks, or are you happy to see them finally go away? Would you like to see something else in its place in future episodes?
