An Open Letter to the Executive Producers and Writers of Arrow:
“She was my sister. I couldn’t be angry because she was dead. I couldn’t grieve because I was so angry.” - Dinah Laurel Lance, 1x01
There is no better way to describe how countless viewers felt as they finished watching Arrow’s season three premiere, “The Calm.” That’s what happens when the writers of your favorite show quietly murder their canonically bisexual female hero.
We find it hard to believe that when you all sat down to decide the direction this season would go, that you imagined how the fans would take you murdering Sara Lance. If you had paused to consider it, we doubt we would be writing this letter.
