Arrow

Speaking with TVLine at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, showrunner Marc Guggenheim revealed “a lot of logistical hurdles” will have to be crossed in order to film the series finale of Arrow.

I came out of meditation one morning and I had the whole last scene — and it’s a brand-new scene. There are a lot of logistical hurdles that have to be crossed in order to shoot that scene. It’s not like we can just film it tomorrow. The thing that I’ve sort of always told myself about the finale was that I wouldn’t be so rigid about my plan that I wouldn’t leave myself open to other ideas. Had I not left myself open, I wouldn’t have written the scene I wrote, which I really, really like.
