The Season 2 finale of The CW drama series Arrow is sure to be surprising, gasp-inducing and action-packed. Finally bringing things to a head between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), the events in the episode, entitled “Unthinkable,” will push Oliver to the edge and force him to decide, once and for all, if he’s a killer or a hero.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, executive producer Marc Guggenheim talked about wanting to surpass the bar they set with the Season 1 finale, collectively deciding that this is the last time that they can destroy the city, that the Season 2 finale will have a moment that definitely answers where Laurel (Katie Cassidy) will fit in next season, and whether they ever considered the possibility of Slade Wilson finding redemption. He also talked about how the consequences of the finale will be felt in the third season premiere, that they already have a full plan for Season 3, along with the themes and character journeys, they know what their Season 3 finale will be, what they feel worked best in Season 2 and what they’ll improve on in Season 3, his hope for cross-overs between Arrow and The Flash, and that there are pros and cons of not working in a shared DC Universe, between the films and TV shows. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
