Oliver Queen Tribute || A Hero’s Journey

Oliver Queen Tribute || A Hero’s Journey


20% of his body is covered in scar tissue. Second-degree burns on his back and arms. X-rays show at least 12 fractures that never properly healed. The Oliver you lost might not be the one they found. after 5 years everything that was once familiar is now unrecognizable. the face I see in the mirror… is a stranger. You’ve been through a crucible. I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. No, it’s okay Oliver. And it changed you. How can it not? Do you wanna know why I don’t talk about what happened to me there? because if people knew, if you knew, you’d see me differently. And not as some vigilante guy… Oliver! No! as damaged. I didn’t know how painful it would be to keep my secrets. Home is a battle field. Back home they’re all trying to get you. get you to open up be somebody you’re not sure you are anymore. After five years, I have plans. I have things that I have to do. I’m not the same person I used to be. I think I’m just beginning to understand the kind of man you are. Oliver what happened to you out there? These… these were five years, five years… where nothing good happened. You seem really lonely. And we all have out secrets Ollie. Clearly you have yours. And it’s fine if you don’t wanna share them with us. But I just really think you should share them with someone. It sounds like you have a narrow definition about being a hero. Have you killed anyone? He’s a killer. Yes. You Mr. Queen are not a hero, you’re a villain. But you know that don’t you you? You’re a murder. You’re not a hero. I’m not a hero. You’re a killer. You’re afraid of what’s happened to you, of what you’ve become, and you’re running from it. You don’t kill because you have to. So why? Why do you do it? because I want to. You think yourself a monster. No, I am a monster. I want to! And I liked it! There is a monster inside you, yes, but it is not you. Stop fighting and live. It should have been me. or everyone you love will die. Choose…no, no! She is dead because of me. It’s over for me. No, Adrian! I don’t want to do this anymore. Earlier today I was looking at Sara, I realized something. One of these days it’s going to be me. This life that I’ve chosen. It only ends one way. I don’t know why I’m doing this anymore. If I just can’t be me and the arrow isn’t enough. Then maybe I should be Ra’s al Ghul. How many people can Oliver Queen lose, before there is no more Oliver Queen? Oliver, this isn’t you. I know you’re still in there somewhere. To do what I do it takes conviction, but… more often than not is the will to do what’s ugly. Every time I do that, I’m… I’m trading away little pieces of myself. A man cannot live by two names. Well right now I can’t live by either. So I don’t know who I am. I thought that I could be me and the arrow but I can’t. The part that I’m trading away… is Oliver Queen. I don’t wanna die down here. And lately I’ve been feeling like there is so don’t Oliver. nothing left, except the Arrow. What you’re gonna do? you can’t run. I’m not running. You’ve taken your last life. You have lived your last day. They’re leaving because of their own personal darkness. I can’t help but think that they were infected by mine. What you’re feeling isn’t darkness… it’s a schism. you’re at war with two sides of yourself. I need to believe that no matter what happens in our lives, no matter how much
darkness infects us, I need to believe that we can come back from that. You wouldn’t have survived, much less come out a hero somebody that wants to do good if you didn’t have a light inside of you. This… is different now. You’ve become someone else… become something else. When was the moment the Playboy
son of a billionaire became the man known as the Green Arrow? You can survive this, make it home, make it better, right my wrongs, but you got to live through this first. You blame yourself for your father’s suicide Dad! Survive. and everything else that has gone wrong since. You need to forgive yourself for your sins. You say that like it’s easy. It is the hardest thing in this world. You’d still rather be the Hood than Oliver Queen. Oliver Queen as has never really been my better half. Nobody moves forward in life when they’re hiding behind a mask. Maybe it’s time to stop living for your father and start living for yourself. Just leave the past in the past. Being the Green Arrow is what makes you feel complete. For some reason when you you put that hood on it enables you to become the best version of yourself. Caring about people Oliver, that makes you human. Human connections are what keep us human. Being human is a luxury I might not get to have. You can’t live on an island. You’ve already tried. But you are always gonna have people in your life, Oliver, and they will always need you. For better or worse, baggage and all. And if you can’t accept that, your past is gonna stay your anchor. Mom, when we were growing up, if you had to leave me and Thea to protect us… Would you have done it? Whether right or wrong, everything I’ve ever done was to protect my children. It’s all a parent can do. And someday, when you have children, you’ll understand. Dad? Everything I do is for my family. I’ll do anything to protect them. not fighting back, never been who you were. I had to make the deal. There’s always gonna be some danger or some threat. Right now, this is what I have to do. I had to find a way to protect everybody. I am the Green Arrow. This was the way. I lost people closer to me than I could possibly explain to you every one of those losses brings with it a choice, between darkness and light. Don’t lose yourself in there Oliver. I’ll be okay. My name is Oliver Queen. I know I called you a murderer but you are not, you are a hero. The old Green Arrow, he wasn’t the bes, he saw the world in black and white, but now you, you know there’s grey out there too. Maybe that makes you a better hero. Only you can light the sparkle Oliver. It is your destiny. What is my destiny? To save everyone. Now? I thought I had more time. I always felt like there was something you weren’t telling me. I didn’t want to burden you with the choice I made. There is an evil coming that is greater than anything we’ve ever had to face. Can we stop it? I don’t know But you are the only chance we have. What did you see? Everything. I see everything now. Among the many misconceptions humanity holds dear. Is the fallacy that all beings are created
equal. Every fight, every punch you’ve thrown, every kick you’ve landed, every arrow
you’ve fired they have all led you here to this moment, to the ultimate fight. In truth,there are those who are greater. They are called heroes. You’ve became a hero, a husband, a father. Thank You. Oliver Queen wasn’t just a hero, was a good man. Was an honorable person. The fact that he didn’t start out that way makes him in my book even more honorable. He stands as a reminder to all of us that anyone could change. Before you died, I gave it all up. You said you’ve given up everything, you made some kind of devil’s bargain with the monitor to save us didn’t you? No. It wasn’t a devil’s bargain Barry and I’d make it again in a second. You believe corrigan prepared you for this fight. I believe my entire life prepared me for this fight. You remember what I told you? Dying is the easy part. The dead are at peace. I’m at peace. The real heroes, they’re the ones that have to keep going. You have failed this universe. Oliver it’s time. Has the planet been evacuated yet? Not entirely. Then is not time. The Oliver that I met 8 years ago is not the one that we say goodbye to, today. Oliver always told me that in order to save his City he had to become someone else, he had to become something else. I always thought that meant becoming the Green Arrow. Today I realize that meant becoming a better man. I need both of you to watch over my family. The best man he knew how to be. He fought to his last breath knowing every moment was another life saved. This universe is far bigger than any of us could’ve dare to imagine, even if it is a little less bright, without him in it. I will find you. Hi. Again.

    THE GREEN ARROW

    Watching this makes me want to watch the whole show again. This was a really amazing show, this show will never be forgotten. Thank you for this tribute.

    The show that sparked the creation of the arrowverse. Arrow may be gone, but the fire it lit will never die out. Oliver Queen, the hood, the arrow, the green arrow, the spector. But most of all a hero who inspired many others. Thanks Oliver.

    Thank you Stephen Amell.
    You saved your city
    And
    You saved the multiverse

    Why did it have to be him? After everything that he's been through, he deserves to live happily ever after more than any single hero ever..The death of the green arrow has left me heartbroken

    He was gone as a Playboy guy, he came back as a damaged spirit, and he died as a hero which saved not just his city but and the whole universe. RIP Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow the hero of not just his city but and of the whole universe😭😭😭. This is the greatest tribute I have ever seen great job.

    Malcolm Merlyn is my favourite character of this show✌ Slade Wilson was great too. People may consider them a villain but deep down we all know that they are just emotionally broken people😓

    Arrow was great entertainment! Crime fighting, super heroes, romance, adventure, drama, science fiction, and martial arts. It had it all!

    Best Green Arrow tribute I've ever seen. Green Arrow proved that a superhero series could be successful and the rest followed suit.

    Finally finished the show about a week ago. Thought about re watching the entire series again and this tribute pretty much solidified that idea. Amazing tribute to one of my favorite DC show characters!

    This really was one of those few shows, that had it all – characters, story, moral, passion, dedication, love, family, depth-width… Watching it, I had the feeling that the people behind this show (actors and more) REALLY put in EVERYTHING to create something unique and special.

    This was the best version of Oliver Queen that has ever been created The way that make him into the cartoon and the comics aren't like this It is more of a batman-esque to it and I have a lot of appreciation for the character it's sad the show had to end but I understand Stephen amell just had a baby a family and wanted to be home It sucks but we got to remember that these people are still human and they have their lives It was a great show and I'm glad I got to watch

    Honestly after Crisis I really didn’t want to watch The Flash or Legends or whatever because this has been my favorite show since I was 12, I will be 19 in 4 weeks. But this video this tribute. It is the most beautifull thing I have ever seen honestly. Perfectly made and I am sobbing. Thank you for this. It really made my nearly 7 years of loving this show, these actors perform worth it. I felt it. Honestly I don’t know how to describe how good this tribute is.

    I cried a lot through every season. But when I finished the 8th season I couldn't stop crying it was so good. I loved this show so much and I love watching it over again. Stephen Amell (sorry if I spelt his name wrong) played Oliver Queen and Green Arrow so well.

    No matter what the future CW Shows are, Arrow started it all. I had no idea about this until I watched Season 1 on Netflix. Stephen Amell was great as Oliver queen, definitely changed my life because of what he wanted to do to save his city. Arrow had its ups and downs, but I continued to watch the show no matter what. Seeing season 8 end it took a lot for me not to cry. I’m going to miss Arrow

    What a great video showing us the best of this show! It has given me so many great memories that I will always cherish. Oliver is such an inspiration (no matter that he's fictional) to be the very best you can be, to keep fighting the demons which are often rather within yourself than outside of you and to get up even in the darkest of times. I hope to keep this with me on my path, it's the very best one can achieve.

    I have a connection to Oliver Queen. I have been in an island too. Not literally in an island. But the life I had been living for five years, the pain that you go through your heart , cannot be described in words. You feel lost and there is no one who can really help you. You hold on to something that is close to you . That gives you the courage and hope to overcome the hell you are living. But one thing for sure, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. God is waiting at the other end of the tunnel to hug you,to comfort you. Dont loose hope.
