It feels like just yesterday that Arrow aired its 100th episode, a milestone which actually arrived midway through the “Invasion!” crossover during the fall of 2016. And as memorable as that night was, a double-edged sword of sorts came along with it. In other words, the writers were tasked with honoring the 99 chapters to have preceded it, yet also had to make it a coherent part in a crossover.
Well, as it turns out, the 150th episode is almost upon us now. This time, though, the creative minds won’t have to worry about factoring Dominators into the story, as it looks to focus squarely on the heroes of Star City. In fact, we already have the title at our disposal.
You see, last night, executive producer and showrunner Beth Schwartz posted a picture of the script on Twitter (seen below), thereby letting us know how the episode in question will be titled “Emerald Archer.” If you were to ask me, that’s as good of a choice as any.
Of course, no plot details have been divulged at the time of writing, but it’s apparent that Marc Guggenheim and Emilio Ortega Aldrich handled handled scripting duties, while longtime series director and Smallville alum Glen Winter will be calling the shots from behind the camera. Furthermore, it’s confirmed as being episode 7×12, so expect for it to air in February of 2019.
But if I were to hazard a guess as to what’ll take place, this could be when we learn the identity of the new Green Arrow – if that doesn’t happen during next week’s “Unmasked.” I’m aware of how that particular title sounds more obvious, but recent evidence suggests the unmasked individual is most likely Oliver Queen, who’s now operating with his face out in the open. Needless to say, we’re going to have to play the waiting game with this one.
Arrow airs on Monday nights on The CW.
