Arrow - Season 2 - Interview with Stephen Amell


On what’s important for him in the growth of the show

“Just that the world gets bigger,” Amell said. “Some of our best episodes in our second season have been episodes where I wasn’t really the primary focus. Episode 6 was very much David Ramsey’s episode. Episode 8 is Grant Gustin’s episode as Barry Allen. Episode 11 is very much Katie Cassidy’s episode. Episode 13 is very much the Lance family. And I’m talking about episodes that we haven’t gotten to yet. But building the world is important because [...] one person cannot carry a show. We have a phenomenal supporting cast, and giving them more to do makes my life way better.”

On the payoff for this season

Amell explained that we would start seeing the endgame for the season in episode 14. He explained, “We don’t say a character’s name unless that character is going to factor in. We don’t hint at something unless we’re going to pay it off. So I know that at the end of episode 14, we end in a spot where we get our first glimpse on where we are going to end after 23 episodes. That’s what I’m most excited about because I want people to see it.”

On what’s coming up for the rest of the season

Amell teased, “What we are building towards in the second season is very much one giant group on one side and one giant group on the other side and just, “Toosh,” like that, coming head‑to‑head. So we are populating our world in the second season for a very specific reason, and I can’t wait to see the results.”
