Arrow continues its first season Wednesday March 20. Just before the short hiatus was up, BuddyTV got to talk to stars Stephen Amell and David Ramsey


Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Check out our interview with Stephen Amell below. 


In the interview, we talked to Amell about the ramifications of letting more and more people in on his secret, including Felicity and Tommy most recently, and how that will continue to affect Oliver both positively and adversely. 

Here are a few highlights from the interview:

  • Asked about letting more people in on the secret, Amell points out that both Felicity and Diggle help Oliver a lot. 
  • Amell says we are going to be seeing more of Felicity in upcoming episodes and she is going to be bringing an expertise that becomes immediately necessary to Oliver. 
  • A really cute moment happens when Amell remarks that Diggle is obviously very helpful and receives a "Thank you!" from co-star David Ramsey (who was standing by being interviewed by another journalist).
  • Oliver didn't want to tell Tommy the truth for many reasons and unfortunately all of those reasons will prove true. 
  • Tommy knowing the truth about Oliver is going to fundamentally affect every aspect of their relationship. 
  • Tommy's knowledge is going to put him in immediate imminent danger. 

Next up, check out our interview with David Ramsey below. 


In the interview, Ramsey talked to us about how Diggle will continue to be affected by the knowledge that Deadshot is still alive, as well as the romantic future of Diggle and Carly. 

Here are a few highlights from the interview:

  • Ramsey jokes that Diggle is going to die (at least we hope it's a joke!). 
  • Ramsey forgets the question and gives us the funniest look directly into the camera. 
  • We find out that Diggle is going on a blood quest and that we're going to see a version of him we never have before. 
  • Diggle's sense of morality goes out the door when he learns that Deadshot is alive and he will hear his own words of wisdom fed back to him (we would assume from Oliver, perhaps?). 
  • There will be some collateral damage from Diggle's personal blood quest. 
  • Ramsey says "my brother gets some love" when asked about Carly. 
  • Ramsey jokes that he doesn't know if Carly's son will call him "uncle" or "uncle daddy."
  • We will see love between Diggle and Carly, but also something else from his past will come up as well. 
  • Ramsey says that Diggle isn't as straight and clean as we all think he is. 


Whew! Sounds like we can all look forward to some very exciting and intense episodes ahead. What do you think now that you've heard more about the rest of Arrow's first season from stars Stephen Amell and David Ramsey? There's been a lot of talk about people being put in danger; do you think that could mean someone is going to die before the season is over?

Arrow airs on Wednesday nights at 8pm on the CW.
