'Arrow' Boss Teases Big Reveals in Winter Finale
After their brief hiatus fighting aliens and reliving their past during the Invasion crossover, the heroes of Star City must face off with big bad...
  • Will Prometheus be unmasked?! “You’ll have to watch the episode,” Guggenheim says. “Prometheus will make an appearance.”
  • New flashbacks ahead: “There’s an idea that carried over from the 100th episode into the 101st,” Guggenheim says. “The flashbacks will be actually flashbacks to season 1… One of the things I wanted to do originally was flash back to season 1 in the 100th episode. Very quickly we realized that we were telling far too much story for the 100th episode and there simply wasn’t any room for that idea. We get to nod a little bit to our 100th episode legacy in our midseason finale.”
  • Team Arrow’s betrayal: “We know from the end of episode 507 that Evelyn is working with Prometheus,” Guggenheim says. “We get a very quick payoff to the cliffhanger of 507.” Read more on that here.
  • Felicity’s relationships will collide: “People who have been waiting for Oliver to meet Felicity’s boyfriend won’t be disappointed,” Guggenheim says. “I can tease that Oliver is going to meet Malone, and there’s a Felicity-Oliver moment that the fans will really enjoy.”
  • Curtis is in for some trouble: “I can tease that we are going to finally discover what Paul, Curtis’ husband, thinks about how Curtis has been spending his nights since he decided to become a vigilante,” Guggenheim says.
  • The Dominators are gone, but not forgotten: “We get a little bit of Oliver and Thea acknowledging all the things that happened in the 100th episode,” Guggenheim says.
  • The crossover may be over, but the action has not abated. “There’s an escalator fight sequence that I’m particularly enamored with,” Guggenheim teases.

Bonus: “There’s a shocking end of the winter [finale] moment for Oliver,” executive producer Greg Berlanti reveals of the cliffhanger.

Heroes & Villains

Neal (Damien Darhk) would love to use the time machine on LoT, not kill Laurel and bring her to evil.

“If Curtis keeps fighting the way he’s fighting, he’ll be dead soon enough.” Echo on Curtis on the field.

“Who knits more?” Without hesitation, Stephen responds: David Ramsey. “The guy is a granite stone”

“Maybe it’s a spoiler, but we’re going to explore new character in flashbacks. I like this season.” - Stephen.

“I love working with Emily. She was the first person I worked with.” - Echo Kellum.

About being mayor or green archer, Stephen said he would like to be mayor.

Stephen says he’ll record shirtless tomorrow, but it’s not a training scene. (OMG!).

Amell promises an unusual OTA scene at the Arrow Cave in the 100th episode.

Echo says that his favorite person to work on is Emily and that she is the benchmark for everyone else.

Stephen wants the 200th episode of Arrow to be Oliver, Felicity and Diggle sitting and drinking tea on vacation.

Oliver’s biggest regrets: Not having been able to save his mother and lie to Felicity.

“Emily is a light, in the second you know her you want to be her friend” - Amy Gumenick (cupid).
