In previewing the episode, titled “Unthinkable,” EP Andrew Kreisberg told TVLine, “There may have been a lot of what seemed like detours this season, but it all plays out in the last few episodes. Hopefully, everyone will see the method to our madness and find the finale to be an exciting culmination of the season, as opposed to just a great episode.”

Series costar Katie Cassidy meanwhile teased the final hour as being “action-packed,” “jaw-dropping” and “beyond entertaining,” “a whirlwind of events that are huge plot points, and pivotal twists in our story. It’s really good.”
