Stephen Amell originally had a different idea to when Arrow should have concluded, as the actor originally thought the series should have ended at Season 7.
During a recent Facebook Live session, Stephen Amell talked to fans about the final season. This was in between scenes as the actor still had some of the eye makeup on. At one point during the session, Stephen Amell dug a bit into why he thought the show should have ended at Season 7 and what made him change his mind.
By the time Season 7 was wrapping up, Stephen Amell felt the show had its run and it was time for it to wrap up. At that point, however, he went on to support the show’s final season by teasing the cool things that will happen:
“I think that we’ve had our running time. That’s what I thought when I talked with Greg Berlanti in Season 6. I felt like we had done our thing. I thought ultimately theoretically Season 7 should’ve ended things. But to come back and do 10 episodes … what they’ve done with this final season is really cool. It’s like nothing you guys have ever seen. Every episode that comes out, it’s like ‘Wait a minute, what? It’s happening what and where and how? Ok, that’s cool. Let’s do it!’”

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) made a dramatic return from the dead in Wednesday’s Arrow.
Oliver made his way back from oversees, and delivered a dramatic speech after convincing Merlyn (John Barrowman) to spare Brick’s (Vinnie Jones) life, even though the gangster was responsible for the death of Merlyn’s wife.
“You did not fail this city, and I promise I will not fail you,” Oliver said to the crowd.
Amell says Oliver returns to Starling City a changed man after losing a duel to the death with Ra’s Al Ghul (Matt Nable) and only being saved thanks to the healing powers of Maseo (Karl Yune) and Katana (Rila Fukushima). He’ll now team up with Merlyn in the coming rematch against Ra’s.
“He comes back having been humbled, which is an important lesson for anybody,” Amell tells The Hollywood Reporter. “You constantly have to be on the lookout for people in the world that are just going to destroy you.”
Taking on Ra’s was a foolhardy move (“It was not even that close,” says Amell of the duel), with Oliver going headstrong into the battle because otherwise his sister Thea (Willa Joanna Chance) would have been faced the same fate, as she murdered Sara (Caity Lotz), though only after being drugged by her father Merlyn.
