Producers Offer Details on Final Scene During Midseason Premiere of Arrow. The midseason premiere of Arrow’s third season ended with a shocker that really changed the direction for the rest of the season, or even the series according to the producers.
The midseason premiere saw Team Arrow surprised to learn about Oliver Queen’s death at the hands of Ra’s al Ghul. However, the Arrow was revealed to be pretty much alive thanks to Maseo and his wife Katana. “These three episodes are a trilogy essentially of what happens in Starling City when the world thinks Oliver Queen is dead,” producer Andrew Kreisberg told ComicBookMovie, “and it allows every character on the show to rise or fall, depending on the circumstances they find themselves in.”
Speaking on how the show will move forward with this twist, Kreisberg added:
You can’t do an ending like we did in episode nine and resolve it in one episode. Even beyond this sort of trilogy, the repercussions of Oliver’s actions are felt throughout the rest of the season. It’s that moment that really changes the world of Arrow forever. One of the things that characters discover along the way is there is no going back.
It doesn’t seem we may be getting any answers about how Oliver survived his huge fall from the cliff, especially going through the cold weather no doubt. It does appear that the vigilante may have been resurrected from the dead rather than being healed. Producer Marc Guggenheim didn’t give any answers either, but he did offer to say how big the story will be.
The best ideas in the life of the show have always come when it’s Greg [Berlanti], Andrew and I in a room together, and we’re throwing out crazy shit to each other, and we stop and go “wait a minute, that’s crazy — but it does this, this, this and this,” and suddenly you see all the dominoes start to fall. That’s when we get really excited. It’s not just about the idea — it’s about the 50 ideas it leads to.
