Who — apart from Dinah — survived the island explosion in the Arrow season 5 finale?
That’s the question on everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, the Arrow cast and showrunner wouldn’t tell Entertainment Weekly anything when they popped into our San Diego Comic-Con studio Saturday. However, Stephen Amell did say that the season 6 premiere will focus on the cliffhanger’s fallout.
“We have flashbacks in the first episode to the aftermath of the explosion, and I can’t say anything else,” said Amell.
While they couldn’t divulge any secrets pertaining to last year’s cliffhanger (and didn’t in the panel either — read about that here), showrunner Wendy Mericle did offer up an interesting tease about this season’s upcoming four-way crossover. “It’s going to be very much rooted in the DCU. It’s going to be an epic story that I think fans will be really excited about, particularly comic book fans,” she said.
So fans (Arrow-heads?), start guessing which DC Comics storyline the Arrowverse will tackle this year, and watch the rest of the Arrow cast interview above.
Arrow premieres Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
