One of my deepest reservations during season one of Arrow was the mixed bag of non-canon supporting characters that surrounded our Emerald Archer. As the season went on it became apparent that the group fell into three groups. Team Arrow, consisting of Diggle and Felicity were quickly taken into viewers hearts as our hero’s trusted allies. However, both had their own unique and endearing personalities that made us root for them. Team Lance, consisting of our weary and long suffering detective who hated Oliver for killing his daughter and the Archer for being a vigilante was a strong and tragic character with realistic motivations while his daughter Laurel was a tough empowered lawyer working for the people and who sympathised with the vigilantes cause.
