“VERTIGO (GUEST STAR PETER STORMARE) RETURNS AND PITS CANARY AGAINST BLACK CANARY – Oliver (Stephen Amell) is thrown by the changes within Team Arrow. He’s used to calling the shots but sees that the team has evolved in his absence and tensions quickly escalate in the lair. Oliver is furious that Laurel (Katie Cassidy) has been going out as the Black Canary and tells her to stop risking her life, but when Vertigo (guest star Peter Stormare) hits the streets again, Laurel goes against Oliver’s wishes and tracks down Vertigo who hits her with a full dose of the drug. Laurel’s biggest fears revolve around her sister Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) so the Vertigo causes her to hallucinate an epic fight between Canary and Black Canary. Meanwhile, Chase (guest star Austin Butler) surprises Thea (Willa Holland), and Roy (Colton Haynes) warns Thea to stay away from Malcolm (John Barrowman). Michael Schultz directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Emilia Ortega Aldrich.”
“I thought that they were two of the best scripts that either show has ever put forward. The logistical elements of it were something that we had to figure out, as we moved along, but I think that everybody did a great job, and that future cross-overs will be even bigger and better and smoother.”
After all, when Arrow himself reveals that the next crossover(s) “will be even bigger and better,” I’m inclined to believe him.
Well, that’s where Amell’s other comment might just prove illuminating. Speaking about the relationship between the two heroes, Amell highlighted the fact that:
“There’s just something about the chemistry between [Grant and I], and the differences between the characters, where we each get to shine a light on the other one, and I think that light is always really illuminating.”
Now, that might just be Amell’s polite way of saying ‘crossovers are cool, huh?’ – but when it comes to the comic-book versions of Green Arrow and The Flash, those differences he spoke about have always completely defined their relationship.

Arrow star Stephen Amell announced today via his Facebook page that he has to cancel his appearance at Orlando’s MegaCon in April to accommodate the show’s filming schedule.
Arrow, like most productions, returned from its year-end holiday hiatus this week and it’s likely that they just got their full production schedule for the rest of the year. Amell appears at numerous conventions around the country both during hiatus and during production, and has had to cancel two or three in the last year or so due to changes in the show’s production.
Here’s the message he sent to fans:
Hey everybody — really sorry to say that I have to cancel my trip to Megacon this year. I’m always sensitive to our production schedule and this years event falls during the middle of filming our finale. Typically, we work the Saturday to ensure we wrap by our last scheduled day. So this is completely my bad. I should have considered production logistics before prematurely agreeing to come, but I was excited about the event and tacking on a family visit in Orlando with my wife’s mom. Hope this doesn’t ruin too many plans. I know that the organizers have plenty of fantastic guests lined up. Sorry again. SA
Arrow returns to the air on January 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. MegaCon takes place on April 10-12 in Orlando and fans can get tickets here.
At present, both David Ramsey and Katie Cassidy, who play John Diggle and Laurel Lance respectively, are still listed as being guests at MegaCon.
“MALCOLM MAKES AN OFFER TO HELP TEAM ARROW – Still operating without Oliver (Stephen Amell) and desperate to stop Brick (guest star Vinnie Jones), Team Arrow is forced to consider Malcolm’s (John Barrowman) offer to help shut Brick down as Malcolm has a personal score to settle with the felon. Roy (Colton Haynes) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) point out that the team could use some help to save the innocents of The Glades, but Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) is adamantly against it. They look to Diggle to make the final decision. Meanwhile, the flashbacks chronicle Malcolm’s descent from kind-hearted father and husband to cold-blooded killer after the murder of his wife. Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Brian Ford Sullivan.”
Straight from the horses mouth, we’ll get to see Stephen on not only Seth Meyers but also Jimmy Kimmel Live! He announced on facebook earlier.
”Facebook! I’m going to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live January 20th,”
