The culmination of much Arrow action, "Kapiushon" tightly nails a serious turning point in the series. It's tough to say that Arrow hasn't taken risks this season, moving on from the beloved Black Canary to introducing an entirely new team.
I think many of these shifts have brought new life to the show. Kapiushon was an uneventful hour that made me roll my eyes on multiple occasions. We need to get some meaningful plots before it's too late. Despite some of the episode's shortcomings, has been a long time since the series felt like it hit a turning point as potentially devastating as this. This episode Top Box Office.

I guess I have gotten a bit tired of the thing in the last 2 seasons where Arrow finds out who the villain is fairly early in the season, but just can't touch him, again and again.
Please stop doing that. For those, I was on the edge of my seat, and really loved how it finally played out, particular the rogues gallery of unlikely allies. I hope they spend more time of some of the side characters' back stories or other current events, not just "had him and lost him" over and over. And yes, I loved seeing a "cleaned up", penitent Slade. Looking for something to watch? Choose an adventure below and discover your next favorite movie or TV show. Visit our What to Watch page.

Dreand Suge Knight all rolled into one". Maya Mani returned to design costumes for the fifth season. Ramsey said this new helmet can do "extraordinary things", apart from being just about conceallment. He added that, since Diggle's codename is Spartan, he decided to make the helmet resemble "an actual spartan helmet design".
The earlier helmet was criticized by fans for its resemblance to that worn by the Marvel Comics character Magneto and Poon, a comic book fan himself, thought the new helmet would fix "the issues regarding some of the fan feedback about [the older helmet] looking similar to other comic book characters". Filming for the season began on July 5, in Vancouver,  and ended in April
