SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains massive spoilers from the sixth season finale of The CW’s Arrow, entitled “Life Sentence”.
During tonight’s season finale of Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) and the rest of Team Arrow are all-in as they take on Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) in an epic final battle. During the battle, Diaz holds Laurel Lance/Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) as hostage, leading Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) attempting to rescue her from Diaz.
Quentin joins Laurel inside the cell, where Diaz threatens and eventually attempts to shoot Laurel. This leads to Quentin jumping to protect her – getting shot in the process. Quentin is then taken to the hospital by Team Arrow to receive surgery. Unfortunately, he suffers a seizure and dies during the operation.
Knowing that Paul Blackthorne was to leave the series by the end of this season, many fans aren’t surprised to see Quentin reach his end in this finale.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen/Speedy, Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance, Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/Black Canary, Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog, Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt/Wild Dog and Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance/Black Siren.

10 DC Comics Characters That Need To Appear On ‘Arrow’
Arrow is one of the most important shows in modern memory. It started the current age of superhero shows on the air. While Smallville was on the air for ten seasons it never truly inspired anything in its time on the air, but Arrow hit its target at the right moment and a time when audiences were craving more superhero stories. From it, The CW generated four more superhero shows, creating the now called “Arrowverse.”
The show has introduced a wide range of heroes and villains from the comics. From major players (The Flash, Ra’s al Ghul, Deathstroke) to some truly obscure characters only hardcore DC fans would know (Wild Dog, Vigilante, Damien Darhk) it is always a great treat to find out which character will make the leap from the page to Star City.
Now, Arrow is wrapping up its sixth season, and while no seventh season has officially been ordered fans can still fantasize about what is to come. Here are ten characters that should appear on the show! Click Next to get started.
