**** Spoilers for the new season of Arrow ****
This season of Arrow is taking care of a lot of the fan complaints since the beginning of the series. The first being the name thing… The Hood, The Vigilante and even The Arrow wasn't good enough for fans and the executive producers kept saying we'd get there… and now we have last week with Oliver announcing that he was The Green Arrow.
Then there was the matter of where they were. Starling City just wasn't right. Last season we saw Ray Palmer's goal of re-branding and rebuilding the city but it took his apparent death to make it happen.
But that left one thing that everyone hated, including Stephen Amell himself. And he tweeted about the change before the episode last night.
Tonight on #Arrow we vanquish a non-living character that has vexed the fandom for 71 episodes. Guesses?

So what was the final thing to go? That's right, the horrible flashback wig. In last night's episode Oliver joins up with a group of gunrunners back on Lian Yu and we see him in the end in fatigues and a short hair cut that he has in the modern day as well. But we'll let Amell have the last word about his close companion of 71 episodes…
So long, wig. — Stephen Amell (@amellywood) October 15, 2015
