Arrow shoots the final scene for episode 318 with Colton Haynes and Paul Blackthorne in downtown Vancouver
Better late than never? Right? well, this year I have often fallen behind on getting blog posts up in time. Another example... this post.
Arrow shot scenes for episode 318 awhile ago in downtown Vancouver and did so with the blatant knowledge they were giving up a huge spoiler to those who witnessed it.
One of the things I LOVE about Arrow so far is their complete disregard for the public seeing their potential spoilers. While other productions in town treat insignificant filler scenes like they are filming the climactic scene in an Oscar Award winning movie and react to those scenes being posted publicly by onlookers by curling up into the fetal position in a corner and wetting themselves while crying, the writers and producers of Arrow seem to accept and, at times, revel in the fact the public comes to see their big scenes.
On this particular spoiler riddled scene, which aired in last weeks episode 318 "Public Enemy", Paul Blackthorne as Captain Quentin Lance was shooting a scene with Colton Haynes, but instead of being dressed as Roy Harper or Arsenal, he was dressed as.... The Arrow.
Of course, knowing now what the scene was for, it makes sense. But at the time, seeing this scene shot, everyone was pretty much standing around going "what the fuck is going on?".
i'll admit, not having of course seen the episodes that would lead up to this scene yet play out (it was filmed BEFORE the arc of Captain Lance hating Team Arrow again) I thought this was some type of "trick" scene that the captain was in on.... but nope, it certainly was not.
Arrow is off this week, but returns next Wednesday with a new episode 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.
