Here’s how Arrow was going to originally put an end to the story of Oliver Queen and why this plan has not been integrated into the last episode of the series.
The Series Finale of Arrow has been marked by the funeral of Oliver Queen, who had died in “Crisis on Infinite Earths”. This final episode was extremely moving and the characters headlights of the Arrow, which marked the series, were back to make their bid farewell to the Green Arrow. Moreover, in the last minutes, we were witness to a sweet reunion between Oliver and Felicity in the hereafter…. The original ending that the writers and producers had in mind for Arrow was quite different to what actually happened in the finale of the series. Even before the broadcast of the first episode of Arrow, executive producer of the Arrowverse, Marc Guggenheim, had explained that the last episode shows how Oliver was rescued from the island of Lian Yu via a flashback… However, this took place in season 5, Arrow !
