‘Arrow’: Stephen Amell Discusses Season Finale, One Arrow Character Not Returning Ever And Another Returning For Season 5

Arrow Season 4 has only three episodes left before the finale, and the very last episode certainly ratcheted things up for Team Arrow. Arrow star Stephen Amell sat down with Larry King and had a little chat about the Season 4 finale of Arrow. Stephen Amell was asked by King, who was reading Arrow fans Twitter questions, to describe the Arrow Season 4 finale in three words.

According to Ora.tv, Amell described the Arrow finale with the following three-word sentence.

“Where’d everybody go?”

Was Amell alluding to more deaths in Arrow Season 4? Well, anything can happen on Arrow and the DCTV Universe.

Arrow showrunners promised a closer respect for the comics, so perhaps some characters that were made expressly for the CW show will go, but then again, the promise to bring the show into the light has not come through either. Speaking of deaths and the broken promises of a return to the DC Comics origins, one character who was offed in Season 4 will officially not be returning.

Stephen Amell, according to Comicbook, was asked about Laurel’s last words in the Arrow episode she was killed in. Amell confirmed that he knew what they were, but he wouldn’t budge on revealing it to the general public just yet. He did say that the Arrow finale would reveal them.

He did reveal at this time, when he was asked point-blank, “Any chance she’ll [Laurel] come back from the dead,” and Amell replied “No.”

Arrow fans, though fairly disappointed by this turn of events, might have to accept the inevitable reality. However, Arrow actors and showrunners always say “No” and “Never,” but do not mean it.

Arrow fans may be in mourning, but Arrow Season 5 will have something for fans to smile about. According to Screencrush, Colton Haynes will return for the next season of Arrow.

“I get to come back on a few episodes of Arrow next year.”

Sadly, Arrow fans are out of luck as far as any details are concerned. Colton Haynes has already returned once before for a few episode in Season 4, but his last full-time screen presence was in the first half of Arrow Season 3. Haynes was once a regular part of CW’s Arrow, but it was his own mental struggles outside of the red hood that forced him to abandon his post in Star City.

“I asked to step away because I cared more about my mental and physical health than my career at the time. I had to step back.”


Colton Haynes’ stress drove him away from his rising career with Arrow and Teen Wolf, according to Comicbook.

Although walking away helped Haynes at first, an almost outing of his private, but not secret life as a homosexual nearly drove him right back down that road. Arrow star Colton Haynes faced the issue head on and now says he is “happier” and “healthier” than he has ever been. Prior to his recent announcement, he stated that he was up for a potential return to his Arrow role as Red Arrow/Arsenal once again.

“Working for Greg [Berlanti] was the greatest experience of my life, and when he offered me Arrow, it was a new beginning for me. I would love to do more. They know I love them. I’d go back in a second.”

Arrow Season 5’s direction is anybody’s guess, and it isn’t worth calling it the season of redemption until Arrow Season 4 comes to a close, but little bits of information to tease sore fans doesn’t hurt at all. Will Season 5 turn out to be better than Season 4? Whose to say just yet, but Arrow Season 4 still has three more episodes to prove the steps it took to get there were worth the ride.

Will it be Roy Harper or his red-suited vigilante alter-ego, and how much will his return play into the fifth season? Will it be better than the fourth? Leave your thoughts and opinions below.
