Arrow: 9 Biggest Questions Left By The Season 7 Midseason Finale

4. What Is The Truth Behind Blackstar?

Arrow season 7's midseason finale revealed Katherine McNamara's mystery character to be Blackstar. A scrappy street fighter and thief who runs an underground fight club in Star City 2038, Blackstar is also revealed to be a broker who procures items for people for the right price. When confronted on her being the last person Felicity Smoak spoke to before her death, Blackstar claimed that her dealings with Felicity were limited to providing her with bomb parts. It was later discovered that Blackstar was lying and that she was involved in the same bombing plot as Felicity. It is still unclear, however, if Felicity was killed because she was trying to back out of the plot or if Blackstar had anything to do with Felicity's death.

3. What Happens to Rene Ramirez In The Future?

Little has been said about Rene Ramirez in the future of Star City 2038. Zoe Ramirez made reference to her father not being caught dead in the slums of Star City in "Level 2." The future scenes in the Arrow midseason finale ended with Zoe reluctantly agreeing to go to The Glades, as her father was the only person they knew who had the resources to do something about the bombing plot aimed at destroying Star City.

While it's clear that Rene Ramirez has apparently put his vigilante past behind him to become a power in the gated community that The Glades becomes in the future, the nature of that power remains unclear. It may be hinted at, however, by a scene in the present, where Dinah asks Rene if he ever considered running for office as Rene rants about the need for the rich and powerful of Star City's elite to help the common people in The Glades.

2. Who Else Has The Mark Of Four?

Arrow The Mark Of Four

It was revealed in "Due Process" that the only reason Roy Harper agreed to help William Clayton was because he saw something called The Mark Of Four hidden in a secret compartment in Oliver Queen's bow, which was buried on Lian Yu. Dinah Drake reveals The Mark of Four to William in "Unmasked" showing it tattooed on inner right arm. The symbol, which resembles an archery target pierced by four arrows, was created by Oliver Queen as a symbol of what he called the Four Pillars of Heroism - Courage, Compassion, Selflessness and Loyalty. Dinah says that all of Oliver's most trusted allies got The Mark of Four tattooed on them shortly after William was sent away by Felicity in 2018, as a reminder that they should stand together and help each other no matter what. Apart from Roy, it is unclear who else might have The Mark, but there's evidently a greater meaning than has been revealed so far.

1. Why Wasn't There An Original Elseworlds Teaser?

After the Arrow logo stinger that usually concludes the show before the closing credits, "Unmasked' instead featured a scene setting up next week's Elseworlds event. This scene was identical to the one that followed Supergirl's mid-season finale episode, "Bunker Hill." While Arrowverse fans may feel cheated that each show won't have their own unique tie-in sequences to the crossover, it is worth noting that all of these mid-season finale episodes had a lot to set up. As such, time may not have permitted the main actors to have filmed unique scenes for each series. Additionally, there are some viewers who do not watch all of the Arrowverse shows and The CW may have wanted to make sure everyone saw the brief but fantastic sequence starring John Wesley Shipp's Barry Allen from the 1990's The Flash series.
