Rickards shared the above photo with the following statement:

I’ve been trying to find the words to simply say what the last seven years have meant to me, and I believe this photo sums its up! It’s a cuddle puddle. Everyone here is exhausted and smiling. Everyone here looks at home. The incredible mind of my friend @schwartzapproved will be taking Arrow into its 8th & final season sending it off with pride, power and love. Without this show I would have not met the inspiring people pictured here nor those I have gotten to work with and get to work with everyday. People who have become my family. I’m excited to see what is in store for the story we have been telling. I’m excited and nervous. A combination of emotions Felicity Smoak vibrates at frequently. Needless to say without the last seven years I wouldn’t have met her... Thank you to all of you for your massive support, passion and accompanying us on this journey. It’s because of you we found each other. 🥂

#Arrow has been the greatest adventure of my life. If that weren’t enough, I have also made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I am so, so grateful for all of it. Here’s to an incredible final season, and here’s to all of you. Thank you for your passion, your love, and your support. We love and appreciate you more than you’ll ever know. #ArrowSeason8 #DinahDrake #BlackCanary #TheBestIsYetToCome 🏹🖤✊🏽

Arrow Quotes

Tatsu: Sometimes, the mission is not worth the cost. You know that. So, why are you still doing what he asks?
Oliver: Because if I'm wrong, if I'm wrong then all of this is for nothing. Do you understand Tatsu? I left Felicity, I left my children. So if, if The Monitor can't fix this and if he is not here to help then all of these things that I have sacrificed and all of the things that so many other people have already sacrificed will have been for nothing! I need my family to live. Which means that I need this to work.
Tatsu: You are risking too much.
Oliver: There is no other choice.
Tatsu: There is always another choice.

Oliver: I just need your A game right now Felicity.
Felicity: I don't have it! My friend, our friend, was shot with arrows and fell off of a rooftop. Her body is upstairs right above us in a freezer because we don't know what to do with it, with her, so I am so sorry, Oliver, if I have feelings, but maybe if you did, too... I'm sorry. That was mean. But this is Sara we're talking about. Your Sara. How can you stand there being so cold and rational?
Oliver: Because I don't have the luxury of falling to pieces. Everyone is looking to me to handle things, to make the right decisions. Everyone is looking to me to lead. If I grieve, nobody else gets to.
