well, we’re all still on tender hooks after the apparent death of Oliver Queen, TV Line has gone and revealed some details about the remaining episodes… it has not, however, revealed Oliver’s fate, which is nice. But there is some good stuff in here…

Producer Marc Guggenheim teases: “The three episodes following Oliver’s seeming death are among the best we’ve ever done. They’re incredibly compelling.”

He also says that because Oliver is gone, Laurel has had to become Black Canary and, oddly, he adds: “There’s a lot of Thea and Felicity [and Felicity will] have some pretty big moments with Laurel as well.”

Diggle actor David Ramsey says his character gets “emotional” in the next episode and hints that the H.I.V.E. storyline will be revisited;  “We’re definitely going to bring back the Suicide Squad,” Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg adds.

On returning characters, they reveal that Sara (Caity Lotz) and Vertigo (Peter Stormare) both appear in Episode 13.

And, yes, Deathstroke himself, Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), returns in episode 14.

Oliver, if and when he returns, is not in for an easy time…

Arrow is back on Wednesday, January 21st on The CW

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
