Ha, how did you get involved in that?
Idk, I kind of would wonder a little more definitively how much of Arrow stuff was his contribution vs Beth's for s7 and s8. Like, I always figured that, yeah it was more collaborative for s8 but that he was a bit more focused on crossover stuff while Beth did the pre-prod and post-prod showrunning work for the Arrow stuff (or at least for working on the actual 810, Beth seemed to do the scheduling and the calls for that one aside from MG still co-writing it, along with that 809 which Oscar and Jill seem like they would be/would have been the showrunners, how much did they do vs just MG and Beth?)), but I always want more details on collaborative efforts on the day to day or idea stuff (ex: whose idea was it to bring the kids back to the present in s8 and how did that come about, whose idea was it for Felicity to be pregnant in s7 and how did that come about, how did the story breakdown go for Crisis on Earth-X, etc.).
Yeah, guessing those "we'll find out very soon" comments refer to maybe actor contracts (KM or KC or JH, or all 3 of them) being up at the end of June and forcing a decision from the CW?
