Arrow's series finale aired on Tuesday night, bringing an end to eight years of superhero storytelling on The CW. The final episode of the run included some long-awaited reunions and meetings, some major changes to the show's continuity -- and an optimistic hint of what's to come in the Arrowverse. That was especially true for the series' final act, which paid off on a tease that fans have been hoping for years. Spoilers for Arrow's series finale, "Fadeout", below! Only look if you want to know!
Towards the end of the episode, John Diggle (David Ramsey) provided a eulogy for Oliver's funeral, about how Oliver's life and death had led to the creation of a whole new universe. Part of the eulogy stretched over a montage of Diggle, Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson), and their kids moving to their new home in Metropolis. While arriving at his new house, Diggle saw a big comet come across the sky, knocking him across the street and creating a crater in the Earth. When Diggle recovered, he inspected the source of the comet -- a box, which had a glowing green ring inside.
