The Hunger Games ‘Arrow’ Style: Who Will Survive Season 5??

Published on May 24th, 2017 | Updated on May 24th, 2017 | By FanFest

Tonight, we will be gearing up for the explosive Season 5 finale of Arrow. In earlier interviews, both EPs Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim have talked about how excited they are for this upcoming episode. In fact, Wendy Mericle has stated that in this season finale, multiple times, that we ‘may lose some people.’ So, Arrow, fans… who is it that we are going to be losing tonight??

Let’s do a head count, shall we? Aside from the obvious… we know that Oliver, Thea, Felicity, Black Siren, Dinah and Wild Dog will be making it through to next season. Oliver, being the shows lead obviously isn’t going anywhere. Thea was deemed safe by Marc Guggheim in prior interviews, so we know that she isn’t going anywhere either. Recently, Black Siren, Dinah and Wild Dog were all signed as regulars for next season… so we know that they are all safe. Felicity’s death would cause an unbelievable rage amongst fans, so I cannot see the writers writing her off.

But what about everyone else??

In a panel at Planet Con, John Barrowman stated that he will NOT be part of the Arrowverse this season. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wendy Mericle talked about how Malcolm will have a ‘heroic and big’ role in the Season Five Finale. In the same interview, it discussed how he is going to try and reconcile with Thea. So does this mean he may sacrifice himself for Thea and Oliver??

Chances of Survival: 3/10

Diggle has been a major part of Oliver’s life since the very first episode of Season 1, when he was hired as Oliver’s body guard. In a past interview with Wendy Mericle, she discussed that Oliver will forge a new legacy in Season 6. Surely, Diggle’s death would give him plenty of inspiration to start a new legacy. Diggle’s death would hurt the Arrow-verse, but I’m more than positive he will be okay.

Chances of Survival: 8/10

In the preview for the Season Finale, we know that Nyssa will be facing off with her sister Talia. While she is merely a guest appearance, I don’t see them completely writing off Nyssa. I feel as though that the writers may have plans for her in the future.

Chances of Survival: 8/10

 

Curtis Holt

While Dinah and Wild Dog have been signed on as regulars for next season, there has yet to be confirmation that Curtis will have the same fate. Curtis has become a very valuable member of Team Arrow, and I am really holding out for him. However, I could see him making a sacrifice for the betterment of the team.. although I certainly hope that is not the case. I’m 50/50 on this one.

Chances of Survival: 5/10

Evelyn Sharp

After betraying Oliver on more than one occasion, Evelyn has made herself an enemy in terms of fans across the Arrowverse. If she were to die, I could see it be as a result from Prometheus double crossing her or sacrificing her to save himself.

Chances of Survival: 5/10

Quentin Lance

We have already lost too many Lance’s (some more than once) so I can’t see the writers writing off Lance. He’s become a pretty inspirational person in Oliver’s life and his character has steadily been becoming more important during this Season. I think it is safe to say that Lance is safe.

Chances of Survival: 9/10

Talia Al Ghul

Talia and her sister are expected to have an epic showdown during this finale. While I am hoping and praying she gets slammed with Karma, I’m not 100% certain as to whether or not she will make it out. Part of me feels like she will come to a ‘revelation’ and turn over a new leaf. At least, that is what I’m hoping for.

Chances of Survival: 6/10

 

Slade Wilson

I cannot see them bringing Slade back just to kill him off. If Slade were to ever ‘go out’, it definitely would be in a much bigger way… in a one on one face off with Oliver. Did I mention how excited I am to have him back??

Chances of Survival: 9/10

Adrian Chase

What do I HOPE will happen to Adrian Chase or what do I THINK will happen?? Well if there is one thing that we know for sure, it is that Oliver doesn’t want to give Chase the satisfaction of killing Chase to Chase. However, there are several other players in the field. What if Malcolm Merlyn’s ‘big moment’ is saving Oliver’s soul and killing Chase for Oliver?? It could very well be a possibility.

Chances of Survival: 2/10

 

What do you think?? Who will survive Season 5??

Arrow‘s Season 5 Finale airs tonight at 8PM/EST on The CW.
