It will be two weeks before you get a new episode of the CW’s Arrow, Episode 20 “Home Invasion doesn’t air till April 24th, but in the meantime I thought I would give you a round-up of all the best spoilers to satisfy your Arrow hunger and get you amped up for the final four episodes of season one!  Read on for all the spoilery goodness…

Let’s start with the most immediate of spoilers news. In the April 20th episode of Arrow, “Home Invasion” the Queen mansion will be under siege and Deadshot (Michael Rowe) will make his return to Starling City. Sounds like Oliver (Stephen Amell) will have his hands full, especially since Diggle (David Ramsey) is looking to avenge his brother’s death and A.R.G.U.S. wants Deadshot captured alive. (source 1)

As for the the next two episodes before the finale, they’ll be titled “The Undertaking” and “Darkness on the Edge of Town.” Speculate as you like on what those titles mean for the episodes’ storylines.  Quick tidbit on Episode 21, “The Undertaking.” This episode will include flashbacks to before Oliver was shipwrecked on the island, showing how different the characters were then compared to now, especially Oliver who was carefree and happy go lucky. Can you imagine him that way? It should be fun to see. (source 2)

The season one finale will be titled “Sacrifice” and I’m almost afraid to know what that means for the residents of Starling City. The finale will bring the events in both present day Starling City and in the past on the island to a culmination, so expect some closure for both combined with some crazy cliffhangers. Oh, and Oliver will be going head to head with the Dark Archer (John Barrowman) again. Wonder how Tommy will feel about that…  (source 2)

There’s limited information available about what season 2 of Arrow will hold, considering the show is still working towards the first season finale, but one thing we do know is that Guggenheim would like to let Oliver do a bit of travelling beyond Starling City next season. Perhaps he’ll be visiting some other well known cities in the DC universe? Only time will tell. (source 3)

One safe bet is to expect more DC characters to be joining the Arrow universe in the future, at least if Guggenheim has his way. Guggenheim has said he would like to introduce The Question into the show, adding the character is one he just happens to “love personally” and that he thinks The Question “would fit very much into the voice of the show.” (source 3)

Guggenheim has also talked Nightwing saying the show’s team discussed the character “a lot,” and that the show would be “would be very willing participants” if DC ever begins to make the Batman characters available to them.  (source 4)

It’s been awhile since the Paleyfest panel, but the deleted scene between Roy (Colton Haynes) and Thea (Willa Holland)  where she called him “Speedy” is still high on my spoiler list. For those that missed this tidbit earlier, Thea calls Roy “Speedy” in reference to his quick take off with her purse. Roy tells her it’s a dumb nickname, and Thea agrees saying “Tell me about it.” That seemed like a good indication Roy will eventually become “Speedy,” but now it looks like the show could just be messing with us. Producer Marc Guggenheim recently talked Roy’s character with IGN and this to say:

I think we’ve written the character to be very edgy. His background is as a gangbanger and a criminal and everything, and I think it just sort of honors who he is. One of the things I’ve been trying to do is to get a character to call him Speedy – just to confuse the issue a little bit. Because we never want the audience to know completely where we’re going to go with any of the characters. I think that’s sort of been born out in the episodes we’ve been doing.  (source 5)

And last but not least, ok maybe it’s the least spoilerish bus still fun – The cast was on set filming this past weekend and  John Borrowman posted an  showing Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity) wearing a “Big Belly Burger” uniform. Will she be slinging burgers with Carly in the new future? And what does that mean for her job at Queen Consolidated? You’ll just have to watch and find out!  (source 6)
