A page has been turned. The Arrow Final Series aired last January, and there are still more revelations about how its co-creator wanted the superhero series to end.

And then you’d go to that roof in a whole different city, and on the cut, a thug or a bad guy would crash into the frame, after being hit off screen.

This ending would surely have pleased all Green Arrow fans …
