Who watched the 100th episode of Arrow last night on the CW?
We loved getting to see the old and familiar faces and melted over all the Oliver/Diggle and Olicity scenes there were!
So, what’s next after that episode? What comes next after Oliver (played by Stephen Amell) chooses the life where there’s pain and both Laurel and his parents are gone?
“Arrow 509, the midseason finale, there’s a fair amount of discussion about Flashpoint, given the fact that, you know, essentially the crossover outed Flashpoint to the Arrow characters who weren’t Felicity,” EP Marc Guggenheim shares.
“They deal with—I think in some humorous ways, actually—deal with some of the ramifications. For example, I think Curtis is concerned that maybe he was straight originally, as one example.”
And what about Oliver?
“You’ll see that [he] sort of has a new sense of purpose. The events of 508, basically, forced him to emotionally double down on his mission, so he goes into 509 with a new sense of purpose, and I would say, also, a reaffirmation of his bond with Thea, because they basically chose each other in 508. That carries through the midseason finale and, obviously, sets up things beyond it.”
