Ever since the fourth season premiere of “Arrow,” both the fans and the cast of “Arrow” have been wondering day and night as to who exactly will end up in the grave that viewers and fans saw at the end of that particular episode. Almost everyone has their own theories regarding who might be kicking the bucket this season, including “Arrow’s” David Ramsey, who  recently came out of the woodwork in order to share his own theories on the matter. WARNING: This article might contain spoilers for the fourth season of “Arrow”. Read on to  learn more about Ramsey’s guesses and theories as to who might end up dying during this season.

Fans and viewers of “Arrow” were shocked when the final scene of the premiere episode of the fourth season featured a flash forward six months into the future with a devastated Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) looking into a grave and swearing revenge on the person who had caused the death to happen. With him was “The Flash’s” Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), who comforted him, and looked mournful, as he apologized for being late due to an encounter with his current nemesis, Zoom.


Because of this, both the fans of the show and the cast of “Arrow” have been speculating and wondering who will be kicking the bucket this season.

Many are afraid that a major character will die, given the fact that Oliver is swearing vengeance and that Barry was sad over it. However, until the day that the flash forward scene comes, one can only hope that their favorite character won’t get axed.

Recently, actor David Ramsey, who portrays John Diggle, spoke to Entertainment Weekly to give them his own theories at who might be leaving them this season.

First off, he talked about how his own character wasn’t immune from getting killed off, although he does believe that Diggle’s burial and grave would have more pomp and ceremony, given the fact that he is former military.

Many speculated that Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) was the one in the grave, as Barry was there. However, Ramsey pointed out that both Oliver and Barry would have been more devastated than they seemed in the scene, and TV Line, in their own speculations, noted that Felicity wouldn’t have a tombstone until a year after her death, as she is Jewish.

Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Ramsey thinks, isn’t a likely candidate, as both Ramsey and TV Line point out, Oliver needs at least one family member around. Plus, given the fact that Thea’s father is Ra’s Al Ghul now, she might be more protected than one might think.


Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) was another option to consider, but Ramsey doesn’t think that the producers will be willing to sacrifice another Lance girl. Also, this would mean that the team would lack a Canary character. It can’t be filled in by the now resurrected Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), who will be busy with her own team soon.

Aside from Felicity, most people speculated that Captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) might kick the bucket this year. It was especially due to his precarious position as a double agent within HIVE.

However, Ramsey noted that Oliver wouldn’t be exhibiting that much sadness for Lance’s death, even though they are allies.

Ramsey then speculated that it might be someone from Oliver’s past, and TV Line also added in Nyssa  (Katrina Law), Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) and Donna Smoak (Charlotte Ross) as possible candidates.

However, Ramsey himself gave another theory that might seem plausible. He theorized that it might be the Earth-Two doppelganger of someone both Oliver and Barry cared about, such as an Earth-Two Felicity Smoak.

This then would explain why both of them are deeply hurt by the loss, but not as devastated as they would be if the Earth One Felicity died.
