Warning: Possible spoilers for this week’s “Arrow” Season 4 finale…
In a controversial move, the users who run the “Arrow” subreddit were so enraged by this week’s Season 4 finale, they decided to re-dedicate the forum as a “Daredevil” subreddit in protest of the show’s direction.
A lot of viewers have criticized this year of “Arrow,” which included a season-long arc with Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) — that came to a (war)head in this week’s “Schism” — and the death of fan-favorite character Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy).
The “fans” were quite vocal in their upset over the finale:
“Let’s see here… The finale was filled with plot holes. Like where the f–k do thousands of nukes in mid-flight go? How did Oliver channel his magic from the hope of the citizens? How did Darhk’s powers powered by tens of thousands of souls just go limp dick in 2 seconds, yet he was able to kill Felicity’s ex from far away? And the final fight scene? What the f–k was that? The final fight scene was shit. They’re both highly trained in martial arts and they’re just trading punches in the face back and forth? The f–k? Did the action scene choreographer take time off or what? Worst season finale ever.” – mkd87
“Felicity directly speaking to this sub when she said “you think I was leaving? not a chance” lmaoo” – batfleck2015
“Arrow has become the awkward cousin no one speaks about.” – iArrow
So far, the subreddit seems to be sticking with the “Daredevil” conversion, and continuing its bashing of “Arrow” among users:
To indicate the switch, the subreddit got a new “Daredevil”-themed header (shown above), which has even gotten the thumbs up from the redditors of the real “Daredevil” forum:
“Arrow” returns for its fifth season this fall on the CW.
