Emotional Cast Tweets Hint That a Major Character Departure is Coming to Arrow
The stand-off between Oliver Queen and Ra's Al Ghul continues on Season 3 of CW's Arrow, but events from last night's episode have led to Team Arrow being placed in the most real danger they've experienced since Oliver first confronted the League of Assassins' figurehead. Earlier this month, the Arrow cast took to social media after filming a scene, which if their reactions were anything to go by, was incredibly emotionally draining.





Even before these tweets surfaced, rumors of a major character death or departure had been rife, but after the events from last night's show these tweets appear to take on more meaning even if they don't bring us any closer to figuring out who is set to leave the show. In responding to Entertainment Weekly's questions about the rumors, Arrow EP, Marc Guggenheim, was non-committal but did say fans are in for a crazy ride between now and the end of the show's third season.

I can't confirm anything," said Guggenheim. "In all honesty, there are so many surprises coming. I was on my way here and I was thinking about episodes 16-23 and the truth of the matter is, every episode contains a massive spoiler. It's one spoiler after the other after the other and it's really hard to talk about. I can't even talk about who is doing what because, yes, there is the strong possibility that someone will not finish the season with us."

So, it's time to start placing your bets. Who will be the next major character to leave the show? Is there anyone you'd be happy to see the back of? Maybe they should kill off the hair piece from Oliver's flashback scenes? Heck, maybe they should kill off those flashback scenes altogether?!
