Paul Blackthorne Returning For Final Season Of Stephen Amell’s ‘Arrow’
Paul Blackthorne’s Quentin Lance is returning to the final season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow across several episodes before the impending crossover.
While he might’ve heroically died back in the sixth season, Blackthorne’s Quentin Lance is returning to Arrow’s final season in another guest appearance to honor how far the show has come since its early days on The CW. Fans will remember that Quentin Lance died in the season six finale, taking a bullet meant for the Earth-Two version of his daughter Laurel. He passed away during surgery, bringing the action-packed finale to a close.
However, according to TVLine, the actor is returning to Arrow as the show’s final season brings back most of the original cast on the farewell tour before the monumental crossover heading to the Arrowverse. Since Quentin died, presumably these appearances will come from alternate versions of the character, time-travel or emotionally charged flashbacks. Anything is possible for Arrow‘s final season with Crisis on Infinite Earths looming on the horizon.
