If you’ve been following “Arrow” on CarterMatt for the past week, then you may know a thing or two already about the upcoming 19th episode of season 3: Bad things happen. So bad, in fact, that both series stars Stephen Amell and Colton Haynes proclaimed parts of filming to be incredibly tough. We’re obviously worried about a character being written out of the show in some way, and we’re even more concerned now after seeing the title for 3×20: “The Fallen.”
This was first confirmed by frequent title-sharer Marc Guggenheim on Twitter, and we give him extra credit for going with the full-color on the print here. Love that green! Anyhow, this episode is written by Wendy Mericle and Oscar Balderrama. Mericle was credited for this past episode “Nanda Parbat,” and she also helped to give us the origin story of Cupid in “Draw Back Your Bow.” (These are just two examples of her work.) Per IMDb, this is the first episode that Balderrama could have a “written by” credit for.
It is really not altogether fair to speculate too much further on this title with such limited information, other than saying that with a name like this, you are almost certainly looking at a difficult hour of TV. This installment will most likely air in late April, and will propel the show down an exciting path for the final three episodes. The season finale will most likely air around the second or third week in May; The CW hasn’t confirmed anything yet.
What we can confirm is that the next new episode is “The Offer,” and it airs on Wednesday, March 18. Head over here to watch a sneak peek! Also, sign up now in the event you want other updates on everything we cover, courtesy of our official CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: The CW.)
