When you are entering the final season of a popular series, you would prefer to make it something memorable. The fact that you have some time to work with, theoretically means that if you have a last minute idea, you can make it happen. That was the case for the CW’s Arrow as show executive producer Marc Guggenheim came up with a new final scene for the show. The problem was to find a way to logistically get the new scene accomplished. As for how the new scene came to him, he revealed it to TVLine.
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.
Guggenheim said he was not necessarily looking to change up the very final scene in the beginning. However, neither was he reluctant to do it provided it improved the final.
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.
