Series Finale
After 170 episodes, Arrow will take its final bow with the series finale “Fadeout,” a title that refers to a part of a bow. Written by showrunner Beth Schwartz and consulting producer Marc Guggenheim, the finale uses Oliver Queen’s funeral to tie things up for the characters who are still alive. “It was really important to me and Marc to honor all of the characters in this,” Schwartz told reporters following a screening of the finale on Monday. “We spent a lot of time in the room brainstorming endings for all our characters and whether they were series regulars in season 8, or they were series regulars in season 1, we really wanted to give everyone a satisfying ending so that you could envision what their lives would be like after the show was over.” You can look forward to a particularly emotional scene between Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards, returning for the finale) and her now-adult daughter Mia (Katherine McNamara). “There’s a lot of wish-fulfillment for a few reasons,” said Schwartz. “I’m a new parent [and] seeing your child in their adult self is really crazy and also amazing when you’re proud of who she became as a woman and also honoring her father’s legacy. Not obviously under great circumstances because they’re at Oliver’s funeral, but I think it was a very meaningful moment in their lives.” —Chancellor Agard
