Promo & Post Mortem Interviews

On Prometheus making his presence to Oliver known:

“[Episode] 506 is when things really start to kick into a higher gear. It’s a 23-episode season. This is true for all the shows, especially when you’ve got a big bad that’s being introduced in the first episode: How do you strike that balance between it becoming the Prometheus show and becoming incredibly repetitive and teasing it out? 506 felt very right to us, because 505 feels like the end of a chapter, as it often is on Arrow. 506 kicks things into another gear.”

On Felicity’s relationship with Detective Malone becoming public information:

“No secrets stay secret on Arrow forever. Oliver’s going to find out about Felicity’s boyfriend in 505. Because I’m spoiling that, I’m not going to spoil when Felicity’s boyfriend finds out that Felicity is working with Arrow.”

BACK FROM THE DEADSHOT | Arrow somewhat famously phased out its Suicide Squad characters, as their summer big-screen debut neared. So how were they able to “resurrect” Deadshot, for Diggle’s visions? “It’s always a case-by-case thing,” said Guggenheim. “In this case, it was really simple. I went to the writers’ room, this was a pitch on the table, I shot an email off to [DC Comics CCO] Geoff Johns, I got a response back, and Deadshot’s in the episode.”
