Mark another show for failure

The first topic the show has taken on: gun control. Wednesday's episode, ominously titled "Spectre of the Gun," features a masked shooter who terrorizes City Hall. The attack leads to a city-wide gun control debate, with politicians and vigilante heroes taking various positions on the issue.

Guggenheim underscored that they were deliberately trying to take the show in a more political direction, particularly after the election of Donald Trump. In fact, he wrote the gun control episode the week of Trump's historic upset of Hillary Clinton.

"We went into Season 5 wanting to do an episode about an issue," he told reporters. "Gun violence felt like the right topic, because of its topicality and because of the level of gun violence is on 'Arrow.' We could have done an episode on abortion, but that’s not really where the show lives. So gun violence really felt like the right thing to tackle."
