Who survived that epic explosion during Arrow‘s season finale? That’s been the nagging question for fans of the CW super series to stew on all summer long, but it may not be as clear cut as who lived and who died.

“A lot of the discussion that we’ve had and a lot of the discussion we’ve seen online is very binary — people either live or they’ll die,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told EW on our SiriusXM radio show Superhero Insider. “There are other consequences that can come out of what happened at the end of [episode] 523. While everyone is focused on one thing, you know us on Arrow, we may be doing something else.”

In our full interview, which you can listen to below, Guggenheim also dissects the fifth season of Arrow, while teasing a bit more on what’s in store for season 6.

Arrow returns Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
