Before the Invasion! crossover event, the previous episode of Arrow featured the massive reveal that Evelyn a.k.a. Artemis is working with Prometheus. Strangely, this wasn’t addressed at all in the 100th episode and middle portion of the crossover event. She actually wasn’t in the crossover event at all. Marc Guggenheim, one of the showrunners for the series, spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Artemis’ turn and why she was absent from the 100th episode. He says,

“If you view the end of 506 and her final scenes with Oliver as, ‘Oh, she’s lying,’ I think you see when she decided to team up with Prometheus.”

The takeaway obviously being that she hasn’t been working with him the whole time. In regards to them not putting her in the 100th episode he says,

“It felt like it was the elephant in the room and we didn’t want it distracting, so we don’t reference it in large part because I’m not a fan of, ‘Oh, it’s too bad that Evelyn’s mom is sick this week.’ I would prefer to just whistle past the graveyard. I will say, you will get a payoff to 507’s cliffhanger with respect to Evelyn big time in 509.”

As anxious as we are to see this plot turn play out, it was a wise call on their part to hold Artemis out of the crossover event. She’s a character from the comics, as well as the beloved Young Justice animated series and to properly handle her change in character, they surely need more time than they could possibly get in the crossover episode. But we’ll handle it next week.

Additionally, a recent tweet from Guggenheim along with some comments made to TV Line may hint at other characters we may see on Arrow sooner than later. First, he tweeted out the cover of the production draft for what will be the 13th episode of the season entitled Spectre of the Gun.

Considering that Spectre already appeared on the short-lived Constantine series, and Constantine has himself already appeared on Arrow, the title has kicked off lots of speculation that he will be making an appearance. Nothing has been announced officially as of yet.

Lastly, he expressed his desire to bring The Question onto the show.

According to Guggenheim the detective and masked vigilante is “perfect for our show.” Interestingly enough, The Question a.k.a. Vic Sage hails from Hub City in the comics which has already been name dropped this season. That’s not all though as this tweet from Guggenheim suggests that Arrow will be making a trip there sometime in the near future.

The kind of Geek that has several shelves on my book case dedicated to Star Wars novels. Star Wars is essentially a way of life for me. Other things are cool too. Generally a big fan/critic of movies, I try to go to the theater once a week. There's a lot of great TV out there too, chances are if I can, I'll write about the stuff I love. I dig the Marvel and D.C. universes so far...except Suicide Squad...that was a disappointment. I love a lot of music but I gravitate to alternative and punk. The Libertines are my absolute favorite. Michigan born and raised and I root for my home teams; Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, Pistons and Spartans.

The Arrow showrunner also sort of tweeted about 2 other D.C. characters we might see on the show in the future.
