Plus, which character won’t live to see season two? Spoilers ahead!

When it comes to The CW’s Arrow, the only thing constant is change. (Also, gratuitous shirtless scenes. But mostly change.) And the events of the May 15 finale — ominously titled “Sacrifice” — will change Oliver “almost completely,” Stephen Amell told HollywoodLife.com on May 9 at the F**k Cancer event in Los Angeles.

We also talked to Stephen, 32, about last week’s big death — rest in pieces, Yao Fei — which he admitted was “kind of a big deal.”

“At the end of a first season, everybody thinks someone’s going to die, and it just so happens that it happened on our penultimate episode. … The last day on set is not morose. The last day on set is a party.”

More Death On The ‘Arrow’ Season Finale

It sounds like Yao Fei might be getting a new neighbor in TV heaven! Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Stephen promised more bloodshed on the finale.

“Not everyone survives the finale,” he tells the mag. “If a father’s dying wish was the impetus for Oliver in season one, then the events that take place in the finale are the impetus for season two.”

What could this mean?! Will Tommy (Colin Donnell) lose his father, too? Will Roy (Colton Haynes) lose Thea (Willa Holland), inspiring his evolution into Arrow’s sidekick, Speedy? No one is safe, and anything can happen, so drop a comment with your theories below!

Its such as you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that you just could do with a few percent to pressure the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
