Arrow At Comic-Con 2016: Paul Blackthorne Talks Quentin’s Next Chapter & Handling Seeing Black Siren

Arrow TVO Paul BlackthorneDC Television’s long-running Arrow will be heading into its 5th season this fall as the show about Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) a.k.a. the Green Arrow, which has helped launch The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, will feature a lot of new changes, new members and more. The show will also be celebrating its 100th episode with 5.08 which will also be coinciding with the 4-show crossover between The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in the Arrow Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 5. Paul Blackthorne, who plays Quentin Lance, was one of the great talents we spoke with as he teased what’s happening in the 5th season and what’s coming up for Quentin after losing his daughter Laurel last season.

Highlights of the interview:

-Quentin dealing with inner demons after losing his daughter Laurel/Black Canary last season.

-Whether he will find some happiness in Season 5, with Donna Smoak.

-How he handles with the very emotionally dark episodes and stories that we get on a weekly basis.

-What is next for Quentin, professionally, now that he isn’t on the police force anymore.

-How Quentin would react and handle seeing the Earth-2 version of Laurel Lance (Black Siren).


Arrow Season 5 begins on Wednesday, October 5 at 8/7c on The CW. What are you most excited about the 5th season of Arrow? Are you looking forward to see the arrival of 4-show crossover? Let us know in the comments below.
