Arrow - Season 4 Premiere - Post Mortem's



Will this person stay dead?

Mericle: They will stay dead. We want to bring stakes back to the show. We don’t necessarily know who it is right now. We're still planning out the whole season, but we want it, obviously, to have resonance, and if it doesn't mean anything to the characters, it won't to the audience either.

How long will Oliver and Diggle be in a bad place?

Mericle: It is something that we wanted to explore, seeing them at odds, and really honoring what Oliver did at the end of season three which was pretty egregious. It's going to take some time but they will get back on the same track.

Lance is now working for Damien Dahrk. How did this happen?

Mericle: Lance is working with Damien Dahrk and you'll see later in the season that he did not know what he was signing up for. We're going to play it really as a crisis for Lance in terms of why he chose to do it and what it means for him. He's always been the moral center of the show and someone who has lorded his morality over Oliver's and when it all comes to a head, it will be interesting to see how these characters work it out. There are going to be ramifications for [Laurel] and him as well. And we will have some cool things coming up where Dig and Lance find themselves on the other side of Oliver, going on independent missions. It's a lot of fun.

Will we see Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) again?

Mericle: Yes, we will definitely see Nyssa. She's definitely not going to be on board with Malcolm as Ra's and we're hoping to take that in a very cool, fighty-fight direction.

RIP WHOEVER YOU ARE | Somebody is definitely dead — “It’s not a fake-out,” Guggenheim confirms, while keeping mum on whether the producers know who is in that cemetery plot — and her or she will stay that way, despite the existence of Nanda Parbat’s magical hot tub. “We want to bring stakes back to the show, and so, we’ll be finding a way to handle the Lazarus Pit… in a new, inventive way that I can’t reveal,” Mericle shares. “But it’ll be cool.” Adds Guggenheim: “It’ll feel organic and very earned. It’s actually very elegant.”
