Arrow star Stephen Amell, along with other cast members, were in San Jose, California, on Saturday for the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest. Amell was asked how he thought that his character, Oliver Queen, would react if his girlfriend, Felicity Smoak, were to have something bad happen to her. Amell did not hesitate or hold back with his response.
“Somewhere between confusion, desperation, complete and utter sadness, and unbridled rage. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.”
The full Arrow panel from Heroes & Villains Fan Fest is below.
The hit TV show Arrow recently launched its fourth season on the CW Network. If you have not seen any of season four and don’t want to be spoiled, then please look away now. The season premiere of Arrow ended with a cliffhanger that will span the entire season. The final scene of the Arrow episode showed a flash forward of six months into the future. Oliver Queen standing in front of a grave. The camera angle made it so that the name of the person inside the grave was unknown. Queen was looking devastated and was joined by Barry Allen, The Flash, who missed the funeral due to problems of his own with Zoom. Queen vowed that he would kill the person who was responsible for putting the person in the grave.
Speculation ran rampant online with fans trying to figure out who was going to be in the grave at the end of the season. The most likely candidates that fans believe the person to be are Laurel Lance, John Diggle, Thea Queen, Quentin Lance, and Felicity Smoak. Felicity is currently the girlfriend of Oliver Queen and the technical genius behind Team Arrow. The main reason that the fans think these are the likely candidates to die this season on Arrow is due to Barry being shown in the scene. The Arrow and The Flash share the same universe. They have worked together in the past and have interwoven friendships with each others team. The person in the grave has to be someone that Barry knows. Sadly, we are going to have to wait until we are closer to the end of the season to whittle down the list.
Due to some recent Arrow news, a new candidate has been added to the list. Colton Haynes, who plays Roy Harper on Arrow tweeted out that he is back and filming on Arrow.
Just landed in Vancouver to…BEGIN FILMING ON #ARROW AGAIN!!! 🙀😸🙀 So excited!!!

Colton, as Roy, was the sidekick to Stephen’s Oliver Queen. Together, they formed the dynamic duo of Arsenal and The Arrow. While working with Team Arrow, Roy began to have feelings for Oliver’s sister, Thea Queen. The character of Roy was written off the show when he publically took the fall for Oliver and said that he was The Arrow. Thea took Roy’s place on Team Arrow and is known as Speedy when she is wearing the red hood. It is unknown what role Roy will have when he returns to Team Arrow. It is also not known why he is returning to Star City.
The new seasons of Arrow and The Flash so far have been used to set up the new CW spinoff show Legends of Tomorrow. The next episodes of Arrow and The Flash will be crossover episodes that will lead into the mid-season launch of Legends of Tomorrow. The CW has quickly become the place for fans of the DC TV Universe.
