This blog post contains possible spoilers for episode 313 of Arrow titled "Canaries". If you have not seen this episode yet and do not want to see or view spoilers till then DO NOT continue reading this post or viewing the photos below.
A few weeks ago, before the Winter break, I caught Arrow shooting some scenes in downtown Vancouver for episode 313 "Canaries". As you may have already seen from my previous blog post, there was some night scenes done on a roof.
This is for the scenes done in the daytime with returning Guest Star Peter Stormare as Werner Zytyl (Count Vertigo) and Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance).
The scene starts with Vertigo getting escorted out of a courthouse by an armed U.S. Marshall (if someone knows the actors name, please provide so I can credit him) in Starling City and the media catches him on the steps & he decides to have an impromptu press conference demanding the Arrow show up. Out of no where Laurel Lance barges her way thru the scrum of reporters to get to the side of Vertigo when all of a sudden the Marshal escorting Vertigo snaps & starts shooting at the reporters.
Tonight on the mid-season premiere Arrow we see Laurel take her first major steps towards becoming the Black Canary. In this scene Laurel decides that shes had enough of this and goes over & 1 punch KO's the gunman while hes firing all over the place. As all of this is going on, Vertigo takes off, leaving Laurel confused and looking around for him while the shooter is laid out on the pavement in front of her.
After this scene was shot, they did a couple short close up scenes of the media scrum, except this time some of them are wearing some really well done Halloween masks. I assume this is what the U.S. Marshall that opens fire was seeing.
As I alluded to earlier, I posted a previous blog with another shoot from that same day with different actors. Based on the parts I know of this episode, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that scene is also an hallucination of someone like the Marshall was seeing.
But, we will have to wait & see I suppose.
Arrow returns January 21, 2015 on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
Arrow shoots night scenes for episode 313 titled "CANARIES" with a Guest Star, Colton Haynes aaaand STEPHEN AMELL
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.
