THIS POST CONTAINTS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 313 OF "ARROW" TITLED "CANARIES". If you have not seen this episode yet, and do not want to know anything prior to viewing it. DO NOT read the article or view the photos. Leave now.
It has been QUITE AWHILE since the last time I caught Arrow out shooting anywhere. In fact, the 1st episode of the season, is the last time I have seen them actually filming. I've been to a few sets, but none that were outside.
Earlier this month I ran into The CW hit vigilante action show "Arrow" downtown shooting a couple of scenes for episode 313, titled "Canaries".
I planned on eventually doing these blogs over the holidays, however...after the shocking finale to episode 309 "The Climb" for the mid-season finale, I felt a need to rush this particular set out fast.
A scene was shot on a rooftop of a "bad guy" (some of us at the set nicknamed him "knock off Jesse Pinkman".. if anyone knows the actors name, feel free to let me know so I can properly credit him.) getting chased by 2 men in costumes. Colton Haynes and his stunt guy Curtis Bracconier were dressed as the Roy Harper alias Arsenal, along with ANOTHER masked vigilante..... STEPHEN AMELL and his stunt man Simon Burnett as the Oliver Queen alias ARROW.
We all knew that Oliver Queen would some how survive his fall off the mountain top. The bigger question though was....how long would he be "missing"? Some internet sites have suggested the show would be Amellless for up to 4 episodes, while others suggest it will be just 1 episode.
Well, unless Roy Harper is hallucinating his mentor running along side him. It appears Arrow is back in Starling City by episode 313 or sooner.
After the shooting wrapped. I had a chance to meet Stephen again, and he apologized to the several fans waiting out there for not coming down on his lunch break. He said "my wardrobe had a bit of a spoiler on it..." which instantly made me go home and look at my pics. Only immediate difference I could see is what appears to be 6 spots on his shoulder that are in the shape of an arrow funny enough...but I THINK they are some type of arrows, or arrow heads? In any case.... looks like someone gave Oliver a Christmas present.
Of course, the change to his outfit wasn't the big shocker from this. That is OF COURSE the fact that at least in some way shape or form in episode 313, if not sooner, we will see The Arrow back in Starling City.
Arrow is currently up for several awards in our year end Best Of TV Awards going on right now. You can vote HERE.
Arrow will return from its holiday hiatus January on The CW in the U.S. & CTV in Canada.

THIS POST CONTAINS MILD SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 220 "Seeing Red". If you do not want to read or view spoilers for this episode, do not continue.
Been awhile since I stumbled across an Arrow set.
In fact, before I had seen a late evening tweet from 1 of Vancouvers best sources of set info, YVRshoots on twitter, I had not come across a set for Arrow in about a month it seemed.
Despite it being a tad chilly, late & even raining a smidge, I opted to head to this set & was not disappointed from what I saw on 2 fronts.
First, I finally got autographs from former The Killing star & now Arrow star Bex Taylor-Klaus on some Arrow photos. I had not seen Bex since running into her while she filmed her 1st appearance on Arrow. It isn't till you see Bex on set, being hyper & energetic that you remember this girl is only 19 years old, barely in her 2nd year of TV acting, as her acting on both The Killing where she 1st gained attention & now on Arrow would suggest someone with more years in the industry. Wish I had a better camera, to have caught the photos of her playing around with the prop broken arrow, pretending to catch it infront her face like Malcolm Merlyn, or her using it as a baseball bat, perhaps envisioning herself playing for her hometown Atlanta Braves.
The other cool thing, was seeing scenes with Colton Haynes as Roy Harper doing what Roy does best, be angry. I dont know what preceded the scene I saw filmed, but Roy was being stopped by a couple cops as Sin came up the street towards where the confrontation was happening.
In the scene Roy is walking with a broken arrow (you know, like any regular person does) when the cops see him & tell him to drop the arrow. The cops foolishly move in towards Roy with the guns drawn, and a series of quick strikes by Roy to the pair of the cops sees them both fall to the ground after Roy attacks them with just his arrow & his hands. From behind the cruiser Sin watches on as Roy makes quick work of a pair of Starling City's finest before he runs off.
The stunt scenes actually had Colton Haynes do a bunch of the work himself, but his stunt double Curtis Bracconier did much of the physically demanding part of the scene. They interchanged so often theres a few shots below that I only sort of know which of them it is, so I haven't labeled all the photos.
After that scene, Bex wrapped for the night, then Colton did a scene where he comes running out of a parkade & runs down the street thru traffic.
I also have some video of Colton/Curtis filming the scene that I will post eventually. But for now, here are the photos from the night.
Arrow airs Wednesday nights on The CW in the U.S. & CTV in Canada.
