The cast of Arrow was on hand at this weekend’s Heroes & Villains FanFest where they talked about where the show is going in its fifth season.
Here are 5 things we learned from Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, and others.
The villain will be closely tied to Oliver’s past actions.
Stephen Amell said, “The villain that we are introducing is a direct result of things that Oliver has done in Star City [and] calls back to a lot of things that happened in the first season of the show. It really grounds the show and really focuses on its core value, which is the battle to save Star City.”
Olicity might be a thing, but not really a thing.
Stephen Amell said, “I think that it’s important to remember that relationships on the show don’t have to be only defined by romance. Oliver and Felicity could have a wonderful, fulfilling, dynamic relationship and not be together, right?… That wasn’t a question, OK. That’s how the world works!”
Spartan’s helmet is getting an upgrade.
The victim of many jokes, David Ramsey’s helmet is being redesigned by Cisco of Star Labs.
Thea will likely face internal conflict.
Actress Willa Holland said, “I hope that Thea in Season 5 is going to be focusing a lot more on herself… and learning a little bit more about what’s going on inside of her now that she has lost the bloodlust. She needs to take some yoga classes and meditate real hard, maybe smudge [with sage] the apartment she lives in.”
Quentin Lance does not get reinstated with the Star City Police.
Amell said so.
+1 How will Diggle respond when he sees Supergirl flying in?
David Ramsey said, “I want to know what that is… He’s going to pee on himself right there.”
+2 Favorite stunts?
For Charlotte Ross (Donna Smoak), it was “running from the bees in my Louboutins!”
Katrina Law (Nyssa al Ghul): “Does making out with Caity Lotz count…?”
Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 5, at 8pm EST.SuperFable
