Stephen Amell will return as Green Arrow The Lightning‘s final season, and the Arrowverse actor revealed the title of the upcoming episode he will be starring in.
As the Arrowverse comes to an end The Lightning pulls out all the stops to showcase crossovers with the other shows. A surprise return for Season 9 is Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen, a character who died during the events of Crisis of the Infinite Earths crossover.
It’s unknown how Amell’s Green Arrow will make a comeback, but set photos already reveal he’s working with the Scarlet Speedster Kid-Flash and his best friend, John Diggle.
The Flash Season 9’s Arrow Crossover Gets Official Title
stephen amellportraying Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow from Arrowverse officially shared that title The Lightning Season 9 Episode 9 will be “It’s My Party and I’ll Die If I Want To”.
The DC actor shared a picture of the screener provided to him by The CW and confirmed that he’s watching the episode ahead of time.
The picture also confirmed that the Arrow crossover will have a running time of 42 minutes and 12 seconds.
In addition to the title confirmation Amell also revealed some dialogue from Oliver in the episode telling Barry Allen from Grant Gustin to let go:
“Ok…Ok…Ok Barry… Barry let go… BARRY LET GO!!!”
A description of The Lightning Season 9 Episode 8 may have hinted at how Amell’s Oliver Queen would be revived as the official synopsis confirmed Team Flash would be involved “time anomalies”, which means this could be the main reason why the Arrowverse hero is back for another adventure.
Why is Oliver Queen telling Barry Allen to let go?
The Lightning‘s upcoming crossover with Arrow is a grand reunion between the two Arrowverse heroes who started it all: Barry Allen and Oliver Queen. It’s quite fitting that it will happen in Grant Gustin’s final run as the titular speedster.
It remains to be seen why the episode is so titled, but past set photos revealed that Flash and Green Arrow’s main antagonist in the episode is Bloodwork aka Bloodwork The Lightning Season 6 is big bad.
In the Arrowverse, Ramsey Rosso (Bloodwork) is still alive after escaping from ARGUS custody. In fact, his metahuman physiology gave him the potential to live forever due to sentient blood.
Bloodwork’s noble mission to prevent death makes him the perfect foe for Green Arrow in crossover, considering the former is already dead. While it’s possible that the time anomalies are the main reason for his comeback, Bloodwork could offer Oliver Queen a chance to be alive again.
This could lead to many twists and turns, with Barry Allen trying to convince Oliver to accept Bloodwork’s offer, resulting in the character’s dialogue prompting Flash to let go.
In addition to the action-packed moments in the crossover, this would mean that another emotional exchange between Oliver and Barry could be on the horizon, crowning the friendship between the two Arrowverse heroes.
A new episode of The Lightning Season 9 will premiere Wednesday, March 29 on The CW.
