Arrow Spoilers and Speculation #48 - "Do you know anyone hiring ex-billionaires with superior archery skills?" - Oliver, 2x23


After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. Oliver returned home to Starling City to his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, his ex-girlfriend and first love Laurel, and best friend Tommy, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. Oliver secretly creates the persona of the Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. After a year of trying to atone for his father's sins by taking justice into his own hands. Oliver is changed by the death of his best friend, Tommy Merlyn, who dies during the attack on the Glades by Malcolm Merlyn. He vows to honor his friends memory and save Starling City in a different way - refusing to be the "killer" he once was. With his team at his side, John Diggle his personal driver (ex soldier) and Felicity Smoak, his executive assistant (computer expert) Oliver, the Arrow is cleaning up the city in the wake of the destruction of the Glades. Roy Harper, the boy who hero worships the Arrow is also working for him behind the scenes. As well as, Officer Quientin Lance (who once hated the Arrow). Oliver has many enemies lurking in plain site will he be able to defeat them...
The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Colton Hayes as Roy Harper, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

Where is her struggle?
ITA with you about Oliver, Sally. he's flawed and ****ed up but he has a really good heart, and he's doing what he can. The more I get to learn about what happened during the five years he disappeared the more I feel sorry for him. He went through a lot.

Umm..What struggle? I need to know what struggle did Miss Laurel go through? beside her being drunkie

Carrying over old links that can be gleaned for info if you are bored:
Arrow Producer Teases Huge Finale moment, Changes in Season 3 - TV Line
Quote:
We really wanted this finale to really feel like the completion of season 2 but also the launching pad for season 3. We didn’t want it to feel like ‘I’ve been watching this show all year and I’m not going to get any answers until next year.’ Just as viewers, I tend to find those are the most annoying season finales. There’s definitely a sense of closure to season 2 and everyone in the show takes a giant step forward in their journeys as characters, whether that’s emotionally or towards a comic book destiny or away from a comic book destiny, so that I think you’re left with a great sense of where season 3 is heading. (AK)

TVF: You said a few weeks ago that Season 3 would look different and how those changes were a big part of changes we saw in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and series like that. Will we see shades of what Season 3 will look like in this finale?

AK: I think that there is a scene in the finale that is going to shake the show to its core at least in terms of what we’ve been doing up until now. I think you’re going to get a real glimpse of just how different season 3 is going to be while at the same still being Arrow and still continuing the storylines that people have come to appreciate up until now.
Collider- S3 Details
Quote:
"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.

How far ahead have you thought about Season 3, at this point? Do you already have an overall theme for the season?
GUGGENHEIM: We’ve actually been back at work for almost about a month now. By this point, we actually have a full plan for the season, and we do know what the themes are and what the character journeys are. We also know how the season will end. We actually have a very clear plan. I dare say that we have a clearer plan for Season 3 than we did going into Season 2, and I thought our plan for Season 2 was pretty clear.

Do you feel like you’ve planted the seeds now, for Laurel to take on a more active role in Season 3, as far as the action and Team Arrow go?
GUGGENHEIM: I will say that the finale contains a moment that very definitively answers that question.

We’ve enjoyed crafting the story that we’re crafting. We’ve enjoyed laying the foundation for The Flash series. In Season 3, I hope that we’ll get a chance to enjoy crossing the two shows over, every now and again. Because of working on the show, I’m very intimately familiar with the pros and cons of both working in a shared universe and not working in a shared universe. Beyond that, because it’s not my decision to make, I don’t actually have a strong opinion on it. What good would my opinion be, if I didn’t have any say in the results of it? So, our whole approach has always been, “This is the current state of affairs. If that changes, great, we’ll change, accordingly. But in the meantime, we’ll keep doing what we’re doing.” We’re actually very grateful for the collaboration that we have with DC. They’ve been incredibly supportive of the show, and they’ve been very giving, with respect to giving us access to various different characters and corners of the DC Universe. I don’t expect that to change, quite frankly. It’s been working out really well, for all concerned.

Just Jared - Season Finale Interview with AK
Regarding Felicity's backstory (thanks Find something real)
Quote:
JJJ: Any chance we’ll get more of her backstory next season?

AK: Yes. We’ve always talked about getting to meet Felicity’s family. It was something we discussed and we tried to do at the end of this season. But we just felt that we couldn’t ever find the right place for it. Once Slade came into the picture, it was very hard for us to have – what we would call – a sort of “lighter” B-Story. Because at any given moment, any one of them could have been killed. So from episode 15 on, you probably noticed that there weren’t too many side stories that were lighthearted. But hopefully, in the beginning of season three when things are quite so turbo-charged emotionally, danger-wise, we can do something like that. Because we’re all champions of it.

IGN - AK on Suprise Outcome of S2 Finale
Quote:
IGN: Here's another Saturday morning cartoon term I'm going to throw at you, but from one of the promos we saw Roy wearing what appears to be a mask for the first time. If that is indeed what we are seeing, would you say that you've now fully embraced the idea of superheroes on your show. Have you earned that with the high stakes that you've set?

Kreisberg: Again, we don't like to say the word "superhero." I definitely think Roy has taken another large step towards his ultimate destiny. I think for fans of Roy Harper and fans of Arsenal, he's really -- and we've always said that if you're going to become your comic book counterpart, you have to go to the island. We don't necessarily mean literally the island, but you have to go through what Oliver did for anyone to believe that you are capable of putting on a mask or taking up arms and fighting for the city. So Roy, with everything he went through with the Mirakuru this season, has definitely gone to his version of the island and has come out the other side ready to embrace his destiny.
(So Roy is one going closer to his comic book destiny perhaps.)
Quote:
IGN: Obviously we want to avoid spoilers for the finale, but I want to look ahead to Season 3 of Arrow. In broad strokes, could you say what would be the theme of Season 3?

Kreisberg: One of the things we're talking about now is that every one of the characters is really asking themselves, "Who am I?" From Oliver to Laurel, everyone is faced with a decision about what their destiny is going to be. Each and every one of them over the course of next season will be making that journey. For some people it's a dark journey. For other people it's a lighter journey. For some people it's becoming their comic book characters. In other cases, it's actually definitively not. We talk a lot about identity being the theme of the season, and everyone's asking themselves, "Who am I?" That's that.
Collider - Post 2x20 interview with AK
On Roy:
Quote:
How significant will it be that he’s now crossed a line and taken a life?
KREISBERG: That is something that’s going to play out in Season 3
Quote:
Is there a character name for the girl who was pregnant with Oliver’s child?
KREISBERG: No.
What can you say about when and how that will come back into play?
KREISBERG: The seeds for Season 2 were planted in Season 1. The best part of the success the show has had is knowing that we were going to make more, and knowing that we could drop these things in and pay them off later. This is something that will be paid off in Season 3.

Thank you Sarah for the new thread and EP for the title!

I wish we could erase the word FAN PANDERING from our vocab. I don't think they are pandering in the show, not really. BUT, sorry, if someone running a show doesn't think about WHAT THE FANS WANT, they aren't doing a good job. Because that is a part of good storytelling. No one wants to write a story no one will hear. I do think they bait in interviews. I think they leave things

Edit . . . I was looking through old stuff to carry over for the post below, and came across this from the TV line article:
Quote:
TVF: Laurel is in the mix a lot differently lately than we’ve seen in the past. I mean, she shot an arrow last week and did a pretty good job. Is that a foreshadowing to where we’ll see her in the third season?

AK: I think for all the characters including Laurel…everyone is presented with a choice in the episode to decide who they want to be. Everyone makes that choice in this episode. Some people will be making the wrong choice and I’ll leave that to the audience if they appreciate the choices everyone has made.
What was Laurel's choice?? Anyone? I'm genuinely confused. I hope it didn't end up on the cutting room floor,

I said do not claim that its a struggle to write for Laurel, when they keep in the same aspect over and over again. That does make them look lazy and incompetent to me, because they have every bit of control over this character and where they want her to go but they chose not to do anything with it.. So that is when I don't buy what they say about it being " a struggle to write for her when they have control over to not be that way.

If they are tired of being a damsel in distress then change it, no one is forcing them to write it the way they do.. and I imagine that is why her fans are getting frustrated over it

I know, right? The guy has been through hell and back, not to mention he watched more than one person he loves die infront of him, including his own mom and dad (that alone can lead to a nervous breakdown for anyone), but he stands, he fights, he effs up and he learns from his mistakes. He doesn't always make the best choice, but he's trying. He doesn't think straight sometimes, but when Felicity and Dig call him out on his crap, he doesn't fight back, instead he tries to fix his mistakes. This doesn't justify all his mistakes, but some aren't even willing to give him credit for any good decision or action he took or for still standing after all he's been through, fighting, learning & improving, and only choose to attack him. And some fans would consider to give him a chance if only he satisfied their shippery feelings.

Yeah, compared to what Oliver or Sara been through, I don't see that counts as a "struggle". True, it's a tough thing, but I don't even get what turned her to an addict then? She was all woe-is-me, and even blamed Arrow for Tommy's death will Tommy died because of her and to save her ass, while she ran out of the building and left him to die.

I never even said Laurel herself was struggling, I said the writers misused the word "struggling " because they do nothing to change it. If they are tired of Laurel being a certain way then change it don't leave it the way it is and magically expect it to change on its own.. nope not going to happen.

If they want more for Laurel then being Oliver love interest or whatever, then give her something more stronger to work with.. Give her something to do outside of that, then maybe I don't know it would be a little more receptive. but leaving her in a stand still like they do is a choice they decided to do.

This is one of the things that boggles me with Laurel. They seem to intentionally write her poorly. I do NOT get it.

The way that had her being all supportive of O/S and giving them relationship advice was too much. They didn't portray her "fall from grace" so to speak, well at all. The entire Oliver-telling-her-he-was-done-chasing-after-her was ironic because of all the times to tell her that, after you came and basically outed yourself as screwing her not-dead sister when you know shes struggling with substance abuse = SO NOT THE TIME.
I don't get why they do it either.

I think Sal is refering to Laurel's struggle--KC said at upfronts that S2 was her island, and I think Sal is pointing out that what she went through does not necessarily equate what Oliver/Sara went through.

Although again, Roy's SL lowered the bar in terms of a believable crucible imo.

Bringing this over again, since its relevant to the current discussion.

IGN - AK
Quote:
Kreisberg: Yeah, I mean, it totally changes everyone's dynamic, having Laurel in on the secret. She has become so much more. Look, I don't think it's any big surprise that we're struggled in places with Laurel as a character -- through no fault of Katie Cassidy, who plays her wonderfully and does everything we ask of her -- but ever since she found out, it's just changed the dynamic, and it's made the show a lot more fun and enjoyable to write. So her storyline in the finale is much closer tied to her father and Sarah. But especially going into Season 3, there's a much more different dynamic in the group. It's really fun to see.

im so sick of the fan pandering being used as an escuse in these threads, its bs.

at the end of the day the writers will do what they want, but theres a baance. they arent gonna ignore the majority of viewers and what they want.

who oliver dates isnt an overall importance in the grand scheme of the show. so the whole olicity thing is perfect for them. fans love it, so they will give us those moments. and they like them, too.

they arent purely doing it to pander to us.

and at the emd of the day it doesnt mess their overall plan for the show up one bit.

We were talking about Laurel, because there is no balance with her, its almost like they jeopdize it in a way. and that kind of bothers me, then don't come out and say we are "struggling with this character if you purposely set it out like that.

Yeah, Ang. I was referring to that.

Thanks for bringing all these links/interviews, Ang

How far ahead have you thought about Season 3, at this point? Do you already have an overall theme for the season?
GUGGENHEIM: We’ve actually been back at work for almost about a month now. By this point, we actually have a full plan for the season, and we do know what the themes are and what the character journeys are. We also know how the season will end. We actually have a very clear plan. I dare say that we have a clearer plan for Season 3 than we did going into Season 2, and I thought our plan for Season 2 was pretty clear.
I hope it's a good plan. *Crossing fingers*

I think part of the problem NOT ONLY WITH LAUREL but with this past season in general is that a lot of REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS ended up on the cutting room floor. Things we know of for sure
-A scene where laurel explained why she went back to CNRI - the documents lost were important for some reason and THAT is why she went back
-Roy during HTTD setting up tibetain pit viper venom as a weapon against mirakuru soldiers.

Someone said these guys don't know how to write more than one female character at a time. It seems like that may be accurate.

I hope now that it looks like they will be moving her to BC they do a better job of selling it. As in, better than they did Roy.

Sal, my pleasure on the links. So many!
Still looking for the source info on:
-Season 3 being more intimate
-Where guggie let slip about Roy's amnesia and how it would come into play in S3.

Cat, Felicity would be proud at this phrasing.


So, the interviews have given us some things to ponder over. EBR said about whether Oliver knows "He knows....Sara knew." Do you guys think this is confirmation Sara was referring to Felicity in that scene where she tells Oliver you need someone who can bring out the light in you. Not that EBR needed to confirm, all the episodes ever since that line have focused on how Felicity helps him make the right decisions. And do you guys think that the cut Sara/Felicity scene had them talking about her feelings for Oliver?

Also, Stephen says whether Oliver meant it or not will be resolved soon. What if it's as soon as the season premiere? Since months will have passed since the finale, I speculate Felicity will be dating someone and Oliver will perhaps be pining form afar. And he will confess to Diggle about the ILY. This seems just a natural flow to the story that I'll be disappointed if the writers miss this chance.
The first scene of season three could be Oliver interrupting Felicity's date accidentally on purpose while chasing a baddie.

OMG...They turned Juana La Virgen into an American TV drama? Oh Hell no. Watch, then Mi Gorda Bella will be one and then I am officially done.

They better not mess up JLV, that story was out of control. Monday and Tuesday night is far more exciting than Wednesday.

Just to backpedal on the telenovelas being stolen, I put in a bid for La Usurpadora before Mi Gorda Bella.

If they really want to test the waters of the latin dramas, Brazil's Duas Caras and Da Cor do Pecado. <---Actually those two Brazilian telenovelas are very CW meets Soft Porn with a deeper story style; the only thing is those shows are heavy interracial and CW is not there yet with a Black lead female actress. Let's see how The Flash does.
