In Amell’s view, the cleaning of Arrow’s slate on the way into season six was a necessary step to move forward, and not only because the fifth season – with its cyclical conclusion of the flashback storylines that had shared time with the present-day narrative since the show’s first episode – symbolised the conclusion of the first ‘volume’ of the Arrow mythos, but because being freed from that initial framework’s grasp allowed the creative team the room to stop looking backwards and begin laying the seeds for adventures still to come.
“I think some of the stuff is just…some of these fans are talking about “Oh I would love to see…” yeah they’ll see it. “Wow it’s time to see, why don’t try…” Yeah we’re going to try it. It’s kind of, to some degree, answering some of the things I think fans want to see. And I think in other ways, taking it in directions the fans would never have thought of. And really to Marc and Wendy’s credit, and to Beth’s credit, for season six, I think we ended in a way people didn’t think we were going to end it. There was no big bad guy ending finding justice, it’s continuing into season seven, putting Oliver in the prison and all that. I mean, that was a risky for our show.”
Arrow’s sixth season ended with a major status change for Team Arrow when Oliver Queen was taken off to prison in exchange for help stopping Ricardo Diaz. However, one of the show’s stars doesn’t think Oliver will be away from the team for long.
In an appearance at Oz Comic-Con in Melbourne, Australia this weekend, David Ramsey told fans that he expected that his character, John Diggle, and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) would be reunited sooner rather than later.
“You know they’ll get back together soon,” Ramsey said. “My man can’t stay away from me too long. My boo boo gotta come home.”
Arrow Season 7 – EVERYTHING We Know So Far by Pagey
The hero got arrested. The show’s moral center was killed. The bad guy got away. All in all, it was a pretty rough season finale for Arrow
