** In the same interview, Barrowman spoke for Creator/AlexKingston and reveals that she wasn't happy how her character was turned into "a screaming mamma". The fact that said character is the original ComicBook/BlackCanary in the comicbooks and suffered a massive case of AdaptationalWimp also does not help.
** After the episode where Thea was PutOnABus, it is revealed that Creator/WillaHolland wanted to leave the show since the conclusion of Season 4.

** Creator/EmilyBettRickards admitted she wasn't happy about the writers playing down her character's comedic side in exchange for angst during Season 3, and said she looked forward to having funny and happy Felicity back in Season 4.

** Creator/EmilyBettRickards admitted she wasn't happy about the writers playing down her character's comedic side in exchange for angst during Season 3, and said she looked forward to having funny and happy Felicity back in Season 4.4, which unfortunately for her went FromBadToWorse. Speaking of which, she also did not like how [[spoiler: Felicity's disability storyline was quickly brushed-off as Rickards was enthusiastic (or "excited" as she puts it) to represent people coping with disabilities and even made a lot of effort to research the subject]].



*** Comments Bennett has made on social media also seem to indicate he shares the fandom's sentiments regarding the show's SeasonalRot / RomanticPlotTumor and no longer desired to be part of the show, a factor that has likely contributed to Slade's LongBusTrip, which ended when [[spoiler: he returned in the second half of season five.]]

* DisownedAdaptation: Terry Beatty, one of Wild Dog's co-creators in the comicbooks, was not happy with his CostumeEvolution in Season 6, citing that the costume is the only thing faithful to the otherwise InNameOnly character.
-->'''Terry Beatty:''' THIS, ladies and gentlemen is what the powers that be at the ''Arrow'' TV show have decided is Wild Dog’s new --> “improved” look. Yup — THIS is Wild Dog. Since the costume and name were all that survived from the comic book to begin with, this is now literally Wild Dog in name only. This change erases any trace of the original Collins/Beatty concept for the character. I would not be surprised if his name gets changed before too long, as well.

--> Whatever was unique about his “street level” costume has been replaced with the current standard issue dark armored uniform — a generic “third Imperial Guard from the left/Death-Blood-Stroke-Stryke/Image big gun” look. Sigh….

--> Oh well, I got a year’s worth of seeing how cool my costume design looked on screen — a validation of my work in a lot of ways. I suppose it was too much to expect it would last.

--> I will tip my hat to Rick Gonzalez, who I feel has done a fine job in the role and has a strong screen presence. I wish him luck in going forward with this and whatever else he does down the line.



** Guggenheim is infamous for creating tension on set by planning to kill off characters and not bothering to tell their actors about until the last minute; Katie Cassidy and John Barrowman were both unhappy about being killed off a show they didn't want to leave.
** In Katie Cassidy's case there have always been rumors that for one reason or another the production team took an dislike to her and they intentionally gave Laurel storylines to make her unpopular with the audience. When the audience began to grown fond of Laurel in Season 3, the producers responded by killing her off in Season 4.

** Related to both cases, at one point Guggenheim, shortly after killing off Laurel, tried to downplay how often they engage in PanderingToTheBase, specifically for the Olicity fanbase, by claiming they don't take what fans are calling for into account. This, of course, is pretty easy to see ''isn't'' the case given how much the show was visibly doing that in the first season, from downplaying Laurel/Oliver and promoting Felicity's character, not to mention its what lead to Sara's revival and ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' being conceived.

** Creator/JohnBarrowman was not happy about Malcolm being killed off. He was only told his character would be killed off the night before the shot the scene and that Malcolm wouldn't be coming back in Season 6. Barrowman then told the producers "where they could shove it". ''Then'' Guggenheim said in an interview that John was more than happy to come back if he wanted. Barrowman believes they never showed Malcolm's corpse as way for Guggenheim to protect himself from any backlash.

He was only told his character would be killed off the night before the shot the scene and that Malcolm wouldn't be coming back in Season 6. 6; keep in mind Barrowman's contract had been renegotiated for the 2016-2017 so could be on any show if the producers wanted. Barrowman justifiably angry at this development, then told the producers "where they could shove it". ''Then'' Guggenheim said in an interview that John was more than happy to come back if he wanted. Barrowman believes they never showed Malcolm's corpse as way for Guggenheim to protect himself from any backlash.
