    Arrow Series Rewrite

    Season 1 is Oliver vs Dark Archer: Same basically as season 1. Small differences though. Wendy White or Naomi Singh (Thanks for the reminder of that character @TheStannimal) instead of Felicity, but only as recurring. Keep Thea, but her name is Mia and she was adopted by the Queen family as a very young child. She doesnít know. Maybe keep Stephen or recast him with Jensen Ackles. Iím not sure. Introduce Roy via his addiction. Keep Diggle, Tommy, Moira, Walter, Laurel but as Dinah, and Quentin. Oliver isnít a stone cold murderer. But he has adapted a kill or be killed mindset. Heíll kill in battle or in active defense. I guess keep the Sara, only now named Sandra (a foster sister taken in by the Lances after her guardian and older sister was murdered), but Oliver wasnít with Laurel when that happened. He was just a playboy butthole, like he was with all women at the time. Him, Tommy and Laurel were all friends and close when this happened. Maybe Oliver and Laurel had dated and broken up before he hooked up with Sandra, but thatís not necessarily needed.

    Season 2: Oliver was trained by the LOA. Thatís the first big change. That happens in the season 3 flashbacks though. In the season 2 flashbacks Sladeís journey isnít involved in a romance with Shado at all, but with the father/son relationship with his son, who is 20. Ivo can be kept, the whole experiment thing too. Sladeís son would be used by Ivo to get him to do what Ivo wants. Oliver ends up getting Sladeís son killed or killing him himself in defense because he attacks Oliver after having been brainwashed by Ivo. The LOA in present day are looking to punish Oliver for leaving them. Itís the ultimate anti killing vs killing concept. This isnít a huge big battle at the end of the season concept. Itís very simplified. Theyíre killing people to turn the public against Green Arrow, now having been accepted by the public and given up killing or having begun to given up killing. Oliver has to prove to the public that heís changed. Heís not just automatically accepted. In flashbacks Sandra is revealed to be alive aboard the amazo and Slade is experimented on by Ivo using the serum heís crafted using a special plant that enhances the body to peak condition and tries to destroy Oliver, who kills him by putting an arrow in his eye, or so he thinks as the amazo sinks. Flashback cliffhanger is Oliver and Sandra being found by the LOA after the it sinks. Present day cliffhanger is Slade being revealed to be alive and amassing power with the new Mayor, Sebastian Blood in Starling City. Laurel takes a more hardlined stance against crime in season 2, becoming an assitant da, and when she finds out about illegal activity connected to Sebastian Blood she looks into him by going to talk to his mom in Central City during the mid season finale, but sheís told sheíll have to wait for a proper appointment time, because sheís in a mental health facility, during the time when the particle accelerator explodes, causing her to be hit with a sound wave of energy from it as sheís leaving the city, but not be effected by it as far as she knows. When she finally does get an appointment to talk to his mom, sheís put in Brother Bloodís sights, so sheís framed to get her off of it, and sheís forced go after him on her own, going after punks for information and beating them up and getting herself nearly killed in the process. Then Dinah Drake finds out and tells her that she doesnít want her to do this, that she doesnít want to lose another daughter, but Laurel insists on it and her mom agrees to it, but only if itís done her way, and she takes Laurel to an old friend of hers, Ted Grant. I even came up with a backstory for Dinah and Ted. Dinah Drake would have become a crimefighter after her dad, a cop, was killed by the mob and gone after them, where she met Ted Grant A.K.A. Wildcat, a vigilante as well. They joined forces, but Dinah was forced to retire when, after getting married to a police officer named Quentin Lance and having a young daughter, her identity was discovered by a hitman and her daughter was nearly killed, a situation that was only avoided because Quentin had shot him in their apartment after Dinah had knocked him out and heíd regained consciousness and tried to attack her from behind as she checked on baby Laurel. How awesome would a period piece flashback episode in the 80ís be with Dinah Drake and Ted Grant fighting the mob? After they help train Laurel, in the last several episodes, after gaining evidence to bring Blood down, Laurel, Ted and Dinah Drake are attacked by Brother Blood and his cult members and Dinah Drake is killed, which triggers Laurel, in a fit of anger to let out her canary cry for the first time, blowing back Blood and his thugs, who quickly escape. Laurel helps Oliver against the LOA after finding out his identity and after saving several people from the assassins using her newly learned skills and her cry and ends the season deciding to follow in her momís footsteps as a hero and opening her momís old chest of superhero stuff and deciding to become the Black Canary. Young Dinah Drake would be played by Alaina Huffman. Miaís arc involves her discovering that sheís adopted and finding out that Malcolm is her father and him convincing her to train with him. Diggleís brother was still murdered by HIVE. Though thatís not something Dig knows about, but Oliver discovers it and keeps it from Dig as a way to keep him from spiraling after being told by Lyla what happened to Diggle after Andy was murdered and how he fell apart to find revenge. Diggleís arc is about him getting his old life back that he lost in his low points when he was out for revenge. Moiraís arc is about her trial and then regaining the love and acceptance of her children, which leads her to deciding that she wants to make amends for her actions by running for mayor against Sebastian Blood after finding out from Laurel about his corruption. Royís arc is about getting clean from his addiction and realizing that he wants to do more with his life, him struggling to accomplish that until Oliver asks for his help at end of the season.

    3: This is where things get a little more complicated. But Sladeís plan is essentially to dismantle Oliverís new life that heís built for himself as Oliver Queen and Green Arrow, which includes destroying his company, his family and outing him as Green Arrow, while manipulating the mayoral office via Sebastian Blood. This is the season where Oliver will have to learn to depend on his teammates. Laurel will have become Black Canary. Roy loses his arm at the end of the season by Sladeís hand after clashing with Oliver and challenging his role as a leader. Laurel in the s3 premiere finds out that Sandra is still alive, when she saves her from Bloodís enhanced thugs, now having taken on the name Lady Shiva. Laurelís driven by anger and pain, after her motherís death. She wants revenge against Brother Blood. Sandra seeks to guide her to that, through more efficient training. Sandraís working for Slade due to him offering information on who her biological sisterís murderer is. Heíll give her the info on the murderer so she take her revenge on him if she does what he wants. But she seeks to protect her foster sister Laurel as well, causing a split between her loyalties. Laurel and Sandraís arcs will parallel eachother. Mia has been brainwashed into working with Slade by Malcolm, who is willing to assist like this to kill Oliver. Slade reveals to Diggle that Oliver knows that HIVE had Andy murdered, causing problems. Slade does still murder Moira, her taking Miaís place, which starts to snap Mia out of her brainwashing.

    Season 4 villains can still be Hive. But it has to be hive of some sort, not whatever this show is put out. Something like the prime earth version. Hive using science and technology to accumulate power and advance the evolutionary process is something that could be interesting. Royís fallen into depression and back into drug addiction and HIVE uses that to manipulate him with the promise of a new bionic arm. Ivo would come back and be a apart of hive, and maybe even heís built Amazo. Laurelís arc would be her learning to seperate her loyalties to those she cares about with whatís right, not allow her emotions to cloud her better judgment. Miaís got a strong arc of becoming the 2nd Speedy and coming to peace about the actions she made that led to Moira being killed. Diggle quits the team because of Oliverís lie and goes out on his own to go after Hive. Thatís all I got basically.

    Please review and tell me what you think! Have a very great day!

    God bless you all!
