– Screen Captures 3×10 – Left Behind
What is “Arrow” without its titular hero? Viewers will find out on Jan. 21, as the vigilante’s friends and loved ones must come to terms with the fallout from Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) seemingly fatal showdown with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) in December’s midseason finale.
Oh the subject of his character’s fate, Amell remained coy when Variety sat down with him last week: “He’s fallen — he fell. I certainly hope he’s not dead. I enjoy playing him,” he offered wryly. “Although there are the regularly scheduled flashbacks in 310 and 311. 312 is someone else’s flashbacks.”
According to “Arrow” producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, the first three episodes of 2015 function as one extended story arc, featuring Vinnie Jones as DC Comics villain Danny “Brick” Brickwell, as Variety first reported. “Because it’s such a huge thing that happens in nine, we really needed three episodes to give it its due because those three episodes — 10, 11 and 12 — really are a trilogy dealing with the very real question of, ‘if there is no Arrow in Starling City, who is going to save the city?’” Guggenheim previewed.
In Oliver’s absence, many heroes will rise up to fill his shoes, from protege Roy (aka Arsenal, played by Colton Haynes) and partner Diggle (David Ramsey) to former flame Laurel (Katie Cassidy), who has been training to avenge her sister, Sara (Caity Lotz), after she was murdered in the season premiere.
Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, John Barrowman and Colton Haynes weigh in on what happens following the midseason finale shocker.
Team Arrow is moving on without its leader.
When the show returns Wednesday, Diggle (David Ramsey), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Roy (Colton Haynes) must pick up the pieces after Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) death.
“Everyone has to step up. It’s not just about Oliver anymore,” Amell tells The Hollywood Reporter. “They have to decide why they are doing it. Are they doing it for Oliver? Are they doing it for the city? Are they doing it for themselves?”
Oliver’s demise at the hands of Ra’s Al Ghul (Matt Nable) came after the team discovered Thea (Willa Holland) was responsible for Sara’s (Caity Lotz) death. But Thea doesn’t even know she committed the murder, as she was drugged and forced into it by dear old dad Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman)
“We’re trying to pick up the pieces and do exactly what he’s done.”
Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) promises that after orchestrating Oliver’s death, he is far from done.
“There is a sequence where Malcolm goes to the Arrow team’s lair, gets in, and goes to tell them that Oliver is dead,” Barrowman says. “He comes up a wall of aggression from Diggle, Felicty, Roy and Laurel.”
He also teases big changes ahead for the rest of the season.
“There are words that are going to be said between characters that are going to be shockers to the audience — almost like a punch in the face. There are alliances formed that are going to be 360 turns. There are breakups that are going to happen that are going to be shocking. All of that is yet to come.”
Meanwhile, Ramsey says Diggle is faced with being the team leader in Oliver’s wake.
“He steps up the plate. The team looks up to him to a certain degree,” says Ramsey, who adds the team respects his military experience as well as his emotional maturity.
Haynes teases “we’re coming together as a team” in Oliver’s absence, though admits that can be hard.
“We’re trying to pick up the pieces and do exactly what he’s done, but there are four of us. But it’s really difficult, because Oliver is our mentor and he’s taught us what we know,” says Haynes.
Arrow airs at 8 p.m. Wednesdays on The CW.
Get ready to have all the feels when Arrow returns with its first episode post-Oliver’s death.
After Oliver (Stephen Amell) took the fall for the murder of Sara (Caity Lotz), the emerald archer faced off with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) and unfortunately lost, seemingly costing him his life. “Stephen Amell is really enjoying playing Toliver, who is Oliver Queen’s identical twin brother that you’ve never heard of before,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim deadpans. “That’s a spoiler. That’s exclusive for you.” He’s kidding. Don’t worry.
“I don’t think the audience is wondering whether or not he’s really dead,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg chimes in. “It’s wondering how he’s going to come back. The answer to that question is really revealed over these next three episodes, which were designed to be a trilogy of what happened to Oliver Queen and what happens to Starling City and its heroes when their leader and their inspiration isn’t there to guide them anymore.”
First, however, the team will actually have to find out the truth that their leader has fallen. “We’re shocked and pissed when we get that news from Malcolm Merlyn [John Barrowman],” David Ramsey says, noting that Diggle will suit up in the Arrow costume while Oliver is gone to keep up the guise that their vigilante hero is still protecting the city. But once they realize Oliver is dead, the decision to keep Team Arrow going will not be unanimous. “This has been Oliver’s crusade for three years and now it’s ours. We have to decide whether we want to stay or go and why. It’s a big emotional turn for all of us. Do we want to go look for Oliver? Do we dismantle the team? How do we fight crime in this city without him? We do, by the way, fight crime without him, and it ain’t pretty.”

Oliver Queen may be dead… but he’s not gone.
On the winter premiere of The CW’s Arrow (airing Wednesday at 8/7c), the vigilante will still have a presence despite having suffered a fatal stabbing at the hand of Ra’s al Ghul, showrunner Marc Guggenheim tells TVLine.
Oliver’s loved ones, however, will be feeling his absence, while Thea inches closer and closer to learning the truth about her brother. Meanwhile, Felicity finds herself in a déjà vu scenario with Ray and forming a bond (of sorts) with Laurel.
Here are answers to some burning Qs about what’s to come, as we mourn Oliver Queen….
