Arrow's series finale has a brand new final scene. At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed he came up with the new last scene recently -- and it's so complicated that it may not even happen.

"There are a lot of logistical hurdles that have to be crossed in order to shoot that scene. It's not like we can just film it tomorrow," he told TVLine.

"The thing that I’ve sort of always told myself about the finale was that I wouldn’t be so rigid about my plan that I wouldn’t leave myself open to other ideas," he continued. "Had I not left myself open, I wouldn’t have written the scene I wrote, which I really, really like."

Later, on Twitter, he added he would share his script pages for the scene if it needs to change or never makes it to the screen. "If we can’t make this work, I’ll post the script pages on the night of the finale. But I hope we get to put it to camera," he wrote. He included a "fingers crossed" emoji with the message.

The Arrow series finale will not be part of the five-show "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover. That will take place during Arrow Season 8's eighth episode, then the series will wrap up in episodes 9 and 10 to give it "a proper series finale." The final scene Guggenheim refers to should take place at the end of episode 10.
