Last night was Arrow’s hundreth episode aired and professionally: it was great. Personally: it was great. I’m not the only person to think that. It saw Oliver, Thea, Sara, Diggle and Ray Palmer abducted in Part 2 of the mega crossover by the Dominators on The Flash. They were in an alternate reality where Oliver, Robert and Sara never departed on the Queen’s Gambit and Oliver never became The Hood, The Arrow and finally Green Arrow. It was an emotional episode that felt a lot like the JLA/Avengers crossover from over a decade ago. It also saw the return of Katie Cassidy as Dinah Laurel Lance, Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen, and Earth-2’s Green Arrow (Arrowverse) Jamey Sheridan aka Robert Queen,Neal McDonough as Damien Dahrk, John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn and Deathstroke (sadly not Manu Bennet in the costume).
Deadline reported that Arrow hit a season high of 1.3/5. The episode drew in 86% more viewers age 18-49 than it did on November 16th. More than 3.52 million people watched last night’s episode. When it comes to ratings and crossovers Arrow was down a tenth of its 1.3/5 rating.
The following is the synopsis for tonight’s Legends of Tomorrow which will wrap up the crossover. “ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL IN THIS CROSSOVER OF SUPERHEROS — After learning the Dominators’ plan for the world, the Legends must work together with The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) and Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) to kill them once and for all. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) figures out, with the help of others, how the team can terminate the Dominators, but is distracted by the aberration he realizes he created in 1987. Brandon Routh, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Nick Zano and Caity Lotz also star.”
