After six season of guarding the identity of his alter ego, Oliver has finally been ousted at the end of the S07 E01, possibly by Black Siren. While this is an important move on the part of the producers’ to marry Oliver the mayor with Oliver the vigilante into one, it sure will have dire consequences moving forward.
I do blame the people of Star City for being dumb all these years, how hard could it be to ID the man. Deep down, I think they’ve always known, but choose to play pretend. Now that Oliver is doing good with the city job, as Mayor, I want to believe the populace will be more accepting of his secret double life, which wouldn’t be a secret anymore.
This revelation has been a long time coming, the full consequences of this revelation can only be seen as they unfold. As usual, things will only get worse before they start to get better.
