2019 GreenArrowTV Awards: Pick Your Least Favorite Episode of Arrow Season 7! 2019 GreenArrowTV Awards: Pick Your Least Favorite Episode of Arrow Season 7!
Fans are invited to pick their choice for their Least Favorite Episode of Arrow Season 7 2019 GreenArrowTV Awards: Pick Your Least Favorite Episode of Arrow Season 7!

Now that it’s summer hiatus time, it’s time to start collecting votes for this year’s GreenArrowTV Awards – honoring the best and not-so-best of the recent Arrow season. We’ve been doing this since Season 1, and now it’s time to play favorites for Season 7!

As always, fans of any show have opinions. This is the chance for those fans to recognize the things they did (or didn’t) like this past year.

Housekeeping notes can be found here.

Our first category for this year is Least Favorite Episode – surely out of 22 episodes, there might be one that you didn’t care for, that wasn’t as good as the other 21 were. Even if you loved them all, it could be possible that there were 21 100%’s and one 99%.

Do remember if you want your favorites to win, you need to vote and tell your friends to as well, as the fans who mobilize are often the ones who “win.” Come back in a few days for another category, and we will be posting reminders on our @GreenArrowTV Twitter account when voting can be done again in new categories.

You can see last year’s results here.

      The point seems obvious. The whole premise of the season was that an important character dies. And it wasn’t the worst idea to have it hanging on everyone’s shoulder’s from the premiere. To shake up the status quo. There was an obvious misdirect with Felicity though it seemed pretty clear that was just smoke to cover up the only obvious choice. The main cast was not that big in the beginning of season 4. In showrunners’ minds they had to kill someone somewhat relevant to justify the whole thing, right? But someone without whom the show could successfully continue. So not Felicity who at that point had the most devoted fan base of literally any other character + she’s the love of Oliver’s life. Not Diggle, because the show already killed Oliver’s male best friend once, and to do it again would seem redundant. Thea is Oliver’s only living blood relative left that hasn’t tragically died, so that wasn’t going to happen. Ultimately Laurel seems like the only and yet perfect choice. Important to Oliver’s past and the show’s original mythology, friendly with the team (though not too close) + there was still Quentin on the show for whom the viewer really felt sorry when she died. I personally felt a sting exactly once during the whole “BIG DEATH” thing during season 4, and it was when Quentin found out. That was tough for the viewer, and Paul Blackthorne did a terrific job. There are many theories of why they brought the actress back, some are simple – doppelgängers are a part of soap operas since the beginning of soap operas (and that is in large part what comics are), so why not give the annoying screaming minority a bread crumb? Also, Katie did a far better job, imo, in playing a villain. Sometimes over the top a little bit, but overall she got the hang of it, and seemed to enjoy the character way more than she ever seemed to feel comfortable playing the jilted ex-lover/wannabe fighter OG Laurel Lance. Plus, BS had real chemistry with Felicity, she also did well with Caity Lotz and Julianna. In fact, the only actor Katie never seemed to connect with was Stephen Amell. Oh well, the problem was solved.

    While I cannot pick a direct worse episode, none of the episodes were great this season, but not all of them were terrible either. But also could have been even better the entirety of this season. While there was potential in the beginning, it just quickly fell flat. Bottom line; this season could have done so much better in many areas.

    The worst we’re definitely Inmate 4587, Unmasked, Star City 2040, Inheritance, Spartan, and You Have Saved This City.

    this season was quite even and good… even the weaker episodes are not “the worst” and had some nice moments. so I would choose 7.10 “My Name is Emiko Queen” just because it was the dull episode, Emiko is boring.

    Star City 2040 for sure
    Despite my personal dislike for this plot, the future storyline didn’t have a great development and flow. The decision of hiding Mia for the rest of the team didn’t make any sense, as much as William’s abandon. Also, they kept the story on the same spot for too much episodes, then ended it suddenly and the plot became filler till the end of the season. So an entire episode of this was monotonous and tiresome.

    The worst is anything with Dinah, Curtis, Fake Laurel, and Rene.

    Quite liked this season. Didn’t much enjoy the scenes with Emiko, so episodes that centered around her would be my least favorite. The idea of her had great potential though… I’m not sure it was the right actress. No shade, she sure tried, but the emotional punches didn’t always land, and the whole thing seemed like it somehow failed to capture the momentum.

    “My Name is Emiko Queen” had A LOT of groundwork to cover, and it unfortunately didn’t. It doesn’t stop it from being an important episode later on when it comes to re-watches, but the episode didn’t stick the landing at all – making it the worst from this season where the majority of the episodes were ‘fine’. Not good, not great, not bad, not horrible…just ‘fine’.
