It seems as if Star City will once again be looking for a new mayor. Paul Blackthorne who plays Mayor Quentin Lance is leaving the DC superhero show Arrow at the end of its sixth season.

Blackthorne has been with Arrow since the very beginning and become an essential part in Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) traversing Star City as both the former billionaire and superhero vigilante known as The Green Arrow. He also initially despised Oliver’s vigilante alter ego the Hood before slowly coming to work in tandem with the Emerald Archer, eventually discovering Oliver and the Green Arrow were one and the same.This will be the second series original leaving the show since Willa Holland who played Oliver’s sister, Thea Quinn earlier this season.

Quentin Lance has gone through an array of emotions throughout the show. In the first season he dealt with the loss of his daughter Sara (played by Caity Lotz) only to find out later that she was indeed alive and had become a trained assassin…only to be killed again by Thea Queen only to be resurrected once again and become a LEGEND on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. He also battled alcoholism after both Sara’s death and later on his other daughter Laurel (Katie Cassidy) at the hands of Damien Dahrk.

Arrow was just recently renewed for its seventh season. Things are being kept very tight lip as to how exactly Blackthorne’s Quentin Lance will exit the show at the end of this season.

 

Epic “Arrow-verse” teaser pics will get you EXCITED

“Arrow” star Stephen Amell tweeted out this epic pic which may be a precursor of things to come on the EPIC 4-night crossover event featuring all of the shows within the “Arrow-verse” (Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl).

Now its way too early for them to be filming those particular episodes. So this may mean a select handful of heroes have been brought together for something (a photoshoot most likely) before that all goes down.

As seen above , Stephen Amell has shared an image of some famous feet as we see the footwear worn by Oliver Queen, The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), White Canary (Caity Lotz), and The Atom (Brandon Routh). This is a pretty fun tease of what’s to come on The CW, and with any luck, we’ll get to see what this impressive group were brought together for sooner rather than later.
