Arrow Star Stephen Amell Has A Special Message for Supergirl Finale

Arrow star Stephen Amell has recently taken to social media, sharing a short video, honoring tonight’s series finale of Supergirl. Arrow was the first show in the Arrowverse to end, with Black Lightning ending the next season. Now, it’s time for Supergirl to fly to its conclusion, and Stephen Amell has some kind words to share for the crew and cast of the show, which joined the Arrowverse officially in its second season after a season at CBS which had to end, and was later taken up by The CW. Stephen Amell has shared the screen with Supergirl characters on various occasions over a number of crossover events over the years.

After congratulating the crew and cast, telling how proud he was of them, Amell had a few specific words for Supergirl lead Melissa Benoist. He also revealed a petty observation that’s likely to get some Arrow fans talking again about Arrow’s own series finale.

“I always enjoyed my time coming onto Supergirl,” Amell says in a video you can see below. “It was such a fun tone, such a familial atmosphere, and you guys crushed it. You really did. You should be really, really proud.”

Later he addressed Benoist with some really kind words, saying, “Melissa, my daughter’s going to miss you very much. Thank you for everything you did; you inspired a lot of people.”

He also dropped an innocuous moment, one that might make some Arrow fans go to Twitter and Reddit to debate.

“I just wanted to say congratulations and I want to say enjoy your series finale tonight,” Amell said, before adding, “Or try to enjoy it; series finales aren’t always the easiest thing to enjoy.”

Here’s Stephen Amell’s Tweet:

However, the final piece can be taken as a criticism of the series finale of Arrow, which has always been controversial among various fans. While Amell hasn’t voiced any displeasure with the final episode, some fans were really sad that the character died on a Flash episode, before The Arrow even featured its finale where the title character was dead and all appearances that he made were in flashback. Stephen Amell’s Arrow died in Crisis on Infinite Earths, later returning as The Spectre, only to use his cosmic powers to sacrifice himself to bring an end to the Anti-Monitor. This heroic sacrifice had been teased well in advance since Amell had mutually agreed with the producers to end the show.

The last two Supergirl episodes will air back to back tonight on the CW.
