Arrow - Season 1 Finale - Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg Interview

Thanks to Keren for the heads up.

What's in store for the finale, scarily titled "Sacrifice"?
Marc Guggenheim: It's a culmination of a lot of different things. It's a culmination of our season-long mythology, what we call the Undertaking, as well as the character dynamics that really were set up in the pilot, both in terms of Moira's (Susanna Thompson) duplicity, as well as the love triangle between Oliver, Laurel and Tommy. That really reaches a boiling point in the finale.

What's the scope of the finale like?
Guggenheim: It is going to be epic. We took over one of the old Watchmen sets and populated it with 200 extras. We're going to be on a rooftop. It is the fight to end all fights, but I don't want to give the impression that the episode is just one big, long fight sequence. What we have planned is pretty big and cool. It also has a lot of emotional climaxes as well.

Oliver is now in the custody of Malcolm. What will happen to him?
Guggenheim: [Wednesday's episode] ended with Malcolm Merlyn exposing himself to Oliver. Oliver has learned that Malcolm is not just the architect of the Undertaking, but also the Dark Archer who defeated him in Episode 9. Oliver has been defeated by Malcolm yet again and become Malcolm's captive. The finale resolves that cliff-hanger, but this all happens in the wake of Oliver and Laurel sleeping together.

What is Oliver's mindset like going into the finale?
Guggenheim: Because by the time the finale begins, he's faced Malcolm twice and has been defeated very soundly by him two times, Oliver's mindset is that he doesn't expect to survive. Basically the theme of sacrifice, which is why the episode is called "Sacrifice," is very present because Oliver knows that he can't face Malcolm and win. So any mission he undertakes against Malcolm is essentially a suicide mission, but he's willing to do whatever he needs to do in order to stop the Undertaking even if that means his own death.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
