Considering the Arrow universe features pits that revive the deceased, time travel, and characters routinely returning from the dead, it’s understandable why some viewers are still holding out hope that Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) will find her way back to Starling City.
But during a visit to Ora. TV’s Larry King Now, Arrow’s Stephen Amell set the record straight when asked if there was any chance Laurel — who recently met her demise at the hands of this season’s big bad, Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) — would come back from the dead.
“No. Simply no,” the actor replied.
Fans wondering what Laurel whispered into Oliver’s ear moments before her death will have to wait for that particular secret to be revealed.
“I do know what they were, but it’s gonna remain a secret,” Amell said regarding Laurel’s final words. “Because much like [Arrow creator Greg Berlanti] said, we like to surprise the viewers.”
We’re just thinking out loud here, but if the Arrow production team really wanted to surprise the viewers, they could find a way to bring Laurel back, right?
