Hey everyone, Josh Behr here once again for Heroic Hollywood with my Weekly Wednesday DC TV list. This week I am going to go over the ten scenes from DC TV’s shows that I believe were the most suspenseful moments we’ve gotten so far.
Spoiler alert: They’re all from The Flash and Arrow. Surprised? Neither am I.
It’s no secret that CW’s DC shows are filled with drama, humor, and action, but they all have another trait in common that largely goes overlooked by fans: suspense. Character deaths are common, and a lot of the time the circumstances leading to a particular character’s death can cause involuntarily sitting on the edge of your seat, whether that is a recliner, a couch, or even a stool. No seat is safe.
Suspenseful scenes don’t always have to involve a character’s death, as some scenes can be suspenseful by teasing a potential death or putting characters in situations that could result in death. Okay… so maybe they do all somehow involve a character’s death (or potential death). What can I say, deadly conflict induces the most suspense. Some of these moments had a happy ending as a hero jumped in at the last minute, while others, not so much.
Flip through the next ten pages for my list of Arrow and The Flash‘s 10 most suspenseful moments!
