Prison won’t be a walk in the park, especially for Oliver Queen.
Arrow returns for its seventh season in less than a month, and Oliver (Stephen Amell) will face some of his toughest challenges now that he’s incarcerated with several of the dangerous villains he captured and put inside.
Showrunner Beth Schwartz revealed that to survive prison, Oliver will have to make some pretty “questionable choices”.
“I think the cool part of him being in prison is that having a hero be in prison is very challenging, especially for Oliver,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
“Just being able to survive prison, similar to when he was on Lian-Yu, he has to make some questionable choices to survive.”
She went on to explain how hard it’s going to be for Oliver to face some of the villains since they’re now on an equal playing field.
“We sort of wanted to write to the real of what that situation would look like if he was locked up with a bunch of previous villains that he’d previously put in there, and they’re now on the same playing field. There’s so much conflict there. He can’t do things the way he did them as the Green Arrow. The rules are different in prison.”
