What price do you guys think Oliver paid for balance?
In the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, Kara and Barry dies.
This ends up being one of those fixed unchangeable points in time.
Later, in Many Happy Returns we see Matrix try to alter history, and take Kara’s place, but is unable to. The Spectre explains that at this point in time all possible versions of all Universe’s will be destroyed. The only way it will not all end is if there is one where Kara rises and gives her life when everyone else falls.
We see a version of that fatalist view here in the book. Kara and Barry must die again.
Or… Must they?
Is the subtle solo scene with the Monitor in reality Oliver Queen’s most important moment throughout all seasons?
Is he able to change what in the comics could not be changed?
We will probably not see what Oliver sacrificed until next years crossover, but should it be his life and that this is the point where Stephen Amell puts his bow on the shelf to move on to new challenges I have to say:
“This was one hell of a way to go. Altering the ending of COIE is pretty much the best way I could ever see one of these shows ending. Oliver Queen does not need to look up to anyone.”
