Arrow Showrunner Previews Season Six Finale

May 17, 2018 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with TVLine, Arrow showrunnner Marc Guggenheim spoke about the season six finale, which will be his last before Beth Schwartz takes over next season. Here are highlights:

On what to expect for the finale: “This is a very unconventional finale — at least, it’s very different from the five that preceded it. By my count, there are four big surprises-slash-developments in the finale, which I want to say is the most we’ve ever had in a single finale.”

On what’s different about Life Sentence: “It’s unconventionally structured. It has a much longer resolution to it than our past finales have had. Usually the climax is in Act 5; in this one it happens in Act 4.”

On the resolution: “We achieve an emotional denouement that is, I want to sa,y pretty rare for a finale for us. Usually our finales are very bombastic and visceral and with a lot of fireworks — and there are plenty of fireworks here; James Bamford directed the episode! — but by the end of it you feel emotionally spent. I feel like it’s the most emotionally affecting of the series finales we’ve had on the show.”
