Stephen Amell, Colton Haynes tease ’emotional goodbyes’ in ‘Arrow’ season 3 episode

Fans of Arrow are used to the rollercoaster of emotions but stars Stephen Amell and Colton Haynes both commented on social media that may shock fans even more.

Amell, who plays Oliver Queen on Arrow released two statements, the first a Facebook post that read, “Putting the finishing touches on our 65th episode tonight. It features one of the most emotional, touching and heartfelt scenes we’ve ever produced. Everyone was equal to the task. Long day, but a good one.”

Stephen-Amell-as-Arrow-in-Season-3-PremiereAmell then followed his Facebook post up with a Twitter post reading, “Sometimes real feelings creep into a scene, Goodbyes are tough. Even when they’re scripted.”

Haynes’ statement just a few hours after Amell hints at tragedy for Arsenal, or possibly one of the other main characters (Diggle or Thea).

“What a rough night. Probably the most difficult day I’ve had at work in my life. So many emotions all around that couldn’t be controlled” – @ColtonLHaynes

Bleeding Cool notes that the episode that is titled, “Broken Arrow,” which is set to air in mid-April, asking what fans may be thinking when they read the remarks: “So who are they saying goodbye to? Could John Diggle (David Ramsey) be moving on? Thea (Willa Holland) going off to find out who she is? Could this be the rift between Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and Team Arrow? Is Felicity finally done with all of Oliver’s crap? Has someone died?”

New episodes of Arrow air beginning on March 18, 2015

Here’s the summary of ep. 3.15:

Oliver and Thea continue their training with Merlyn (John Barrowman). Thea struggles with the secret of Sara’s death, and confesses the whole truth to Laurel (Katie Cassidy) who tells her she isn’t responsible; Thea also makes a deal to turn her father over to the League. Laurel confronts Merlyn and is easily outmatched, but they are interrupted by Nyssa and the League, and Merlyn is captured. Oliver decides to go to Nanda Parbat to rescue Merlyn to prevent Thea from losing touch with her humanity when she realizes that she has sentenced her father to death. Oliver and Diggle infiltrate Nanda Parbat, but walk into a trap set by Ra’s. Instead of killing Oliver, Ra’s expresses his appreciation for Oliver’s courage and strength, and asks Oliver to replace him as the head of the League. Meanwhile, Thea confesses the truth to Nyssa and offers her the chance at revenge, and Ray tests the flight capabilities of his completed A.T.O.M. exo-suit. In flashbacks, Oliver is debriefed by General Matthew Shrieve. Afterward, he is promised that he can return home if he pleases. On their way home, Oliver and the Yamashiros are ambushed. Overrun, Oliver flees for safety with the Yamashiros’ son.
