Discussion and commentary on the CW television series Arrow and the Green Arrow comic books with Jay and Josh. Contact us at greenJustice@retrozap.com.
"Fadeout" for the final time as the Arrow television series comes to a close. Some things have changed in Star City and some things have stayed the same. But the biggest difference that everyone is feeling right now is that Oliver Queen is truly dead. His friends and family have come to mourn his passing. Sara Lance even brings Mia from the future to honor her father's memory. But as they try to cope with their loss, a man once captured by Green Arrow tries to exact his revenge by kidnapping young William. The team scours the city looking for him and contemplating their futures. Once Mia saves the day, they say their final farewell to both Oliver and the vigilante life they have been leading for all these years. Their futures may be up in the air, but in the actual future true love gets its happy ending. Jay and Josh bid adieu to the show that started it all on the series finale of Green Justice: An Arrow Podcast!

Crisis on Infinite Earths
"Crisis on Infinite Earths" parts 4 and 5 picks up 10,000 years before the midseason finale where we find Mar Novu conducting the time experiment that released the Anti-Monitor and destroyed the Multiverse. The seven Paragons work to find a way to bring back everyone everywhere by traveling back and stopping it before it starts. They will need help from Oliver Queen, who is now in the form of the Spectre. After an epic battle and an epic sacrifice, everything seems to have reappeared. But there is one, very big difference: There is now a prime Earth where our heroes can easily join together to fight any menace that comes their way. And the first one they'll have to defeat is the Anti-Monitor. Jay and Josh will not fail this multiverse in the grandiose conclusion of Crisis on this week's Green Justice: An Arrow Podcast!

After discovering Lyla's secret, Oliver experiences a "Reset" of his day until he gets it right. He wakes up each time right before he reunites with Quentin Lance.

Over and over they try to prevent Lance from dying, but each time they fail. Lyla is also there, and though they don't trust her, she seems to be giving them some hints on exactly what it is they are supposed to be doing in this painful, looping nightmare. Eventually, they both have to learn to say goodbye and accept the inevitable. And he has one more mission before the Crisis arrives.

Oliver must use all his "Prochnost" as he travels to Russia to work with his children and get the Pulse Wave Generator with the help of his old friend Anatoly.

Oleg, who now leads the Bratva, ties them up and puts Mia to the test. She almost succeeds too, but it looks like they'll have to fight their way out once again. Diggle is on his own mission. He recruits Roy for 'one last mission'. Roy becomes suspicious and realizes he's just trying to get him to come back for good.
