Yesterday I caught Arrow filming in a place fans are somewhat familiar with. Arrow had a rare location shoot for their 10th, and final episode of season 8. THEIR FINAL SEASON. This shoot was in Crab Park in Vancouver.
This is of course a location better know to Olicity fans for this scene.
But on this day, they were filming a little bit further in the park. Closer to the pier that juts out from the shore of the park.
Very little is known to those outside of the set, as it was in a location that was difficult to get a good view on. I know, I spent 2+ hours walking around looking for the best vantage point.
I can confirm Juliana Harkavy was there, as she posted an IG Story showing the exact opposite view I had. Outside of that, who knows? All I do know is, there was so many trailers there for cast, I lost track of how many there were. I would say easily 20, possibly 30?... which is A LOT for a film set of any size. James Bamford is directing the episode, which is titled "Fadeout" and he tweeted this, and I can definitely say "I" have never been to a set with so many cast trailers.
I never specifically saw any cast that I could definitely ID, as it was dark, and I was looking from a considerable distance at even the closest of locations I found (I added a photo in from the vantage point that gave me the best look... you can see JUST how far I really had to look).... if you can ID someone from the photos I provide, good on you. I concede I have pretty bad eyes, so maybe theres one you can pick out that I cant... but I doubt it.
The one thing you CAN make out however, is that during the filming there is something under a blanket for much of the evening. During the 4 hours they shot there, about 3 1/2 hours of it, that blanket you see wrapped around something in a couple of the photos was up. But for breif moments throughout the evening, the blanket would be removed for a scene, and we would see that under it was..... a statue of The Green Arrow. The base that it sat on was several feet high itself, so it towered above the cast & crew on hand for the scene.
Of course, when they wrapped, it was taken away. So when I went by a bit after that to try and get a closer look. No luck.
Sadly, nothing more to report on the set at this time. Like I said, I was filming from far away (approximately 2 football fields away.... might have been the longest shoot I've ever attempted), and it was dark, and really fucking cold where I was standing to shoot it.
So, now you can start speculating on WHO was there.
When I have a bit of time, I will work on a wrap up blog post about the entire filming of the show from my first encounter with them during episode 2 of season 1, to this very final week of filming.
There is more photos (better quality) of the statue from a shoot two nights later in this blog post along with another notable spoiler.
Arrow season 8 will conclude in January on The CW in the U.S.
