Fan Fest Picks: Favorite Arrowverse Moments of 2017
It’s been quite a year for the Arrowvserse. From reunions to betrayals, to romance and weddings, to epic crossovers, 2017 has been full of amazing moments on Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Fellow Arrowverse expert Jules and I have decided to ring in the new year by collecting our favorite Arrowverse moments of this year.
5. The Batman Reference (Arrow)
The Wonder Woman Reference (Legends of Tomorrow)
Alyssa: Just like in Arrow, we got another massive reference dropped during this season of Legends of Tomorrow when Zari breaks the rules and drops Helen of Troy off at Themiscyra. I knew as soon as Zari told Helen she was taking her to an island of warrior women (and also happened to be completely devoid of men). Then the location title popped up at the bottom of the screen and I screamed at the TV. It was awesome.
4. The Kara/Reign Showdown (Supergirl)
(Jules & Alyssa)
3. The Double Wedding (Legends of Tomorrow)
The Legends (x2) vs. The Legion (Legends of Tomorrow)
Alyssa: The Legends faced their toughest foes yet in the Season 2 finale, but they weren’t alone. Two sets of Legends set out to take on the Legion. We got a really great action sequence as well as emotional moments as we watched one set of Legends die one by one until only Sara was left. Then, Sara solidified her role as captain by diffusing the Spear, passing up the opportunity to restore Laurel’s life.
2. The Return of Captain Cold (The Flash)
Reunion of Friends and Foes (Arrow)
Alyssa: The end of Season 5 of Arrow found Adrian Chase kidnapping everyone that Oliver cares for and holding them hostage on Lian Yu. Knowing he can’t do it alone, Oliver gets aid from some unlikely companions. He is joined by Malcolm Merlyn, Nyssa al Ghul, and Slade Wilson as they take on Adrian Chase, Talia al Ghul, and Black Siren. It was pretty epic.
1. The Deathstroke Tales (Arrow)
‘Crisis on Earth-X’ (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow)
The crossover event is always my favorite time of year and I couldn’t imagine this year’s being able to overcome ‘Invasion!’ but it did. ‘Crisis on Earth-X’ was firing on all cylinders, delivering incredible action sequences, great character interactions, comedy, and emotional moments that ripped your heart out. It was everything that we love about the Arrowverse in four hours.
