Arrow Season 8 just premiered on October 15, 2019. Arrow will be the last season in the Arrow series featuring Stephen Amell as Green Arrow. This is the show that gave us all a live-action superhero series to look forward to every season. Along with that, the plus point of the show is Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak’s sizzling romance. But season 8 being the last one, Arrow will surely be missed as one of the top TV series. Season 8 will air 10 episodes. The first one, “Starling City,” just premiered on October 15, 2019.
Episode 01: Starling City
Season 8’s first episode, Starling City, is here, and we couldn’t be more excited. Oliver Queen wears a new green hood throughout the multiverse. This season will also provide us with some easter eggs for Crisis on Infinite Earths. The first episode is full of nostalgia for the memories with the preparation of what Oliver will face. Starling City is the best season premiere of the Arrow series. It hits you like Oliver’s arrow giving you all the chills and the feels.
In season 8 premier, Green Arrow, aka Oliver Queen, is on his first mission involving the Monitor. It’s a mission far from home back to Lian Yu, which is the source of all beginnings. But there was a twist in the tale during the premiere episode. Ahead of the premiere, a clip was released, which reveals Batman’s Cowl on the island. This is found precisely at the place where Deathstroke’s mask was initially placed.
The teaser clip warned the fans ahead of the premier about the twist that will be coming in the show. Batman references in the Arrowverse can be quite exciting for the fans. This happened to be a particular detail that had the fans freaking out. Check out the epic reactions on Twitter for the teaser:
