The CW
+The CW Television Network has released a 15 second teaser for Episode 310 of 'Arrow'. It's a rather mysterious clip that shows a frozen, mountainous landscape with the word "Survive" superimposed on it. A voice announces "Oliver Queen is dead."

'Arrow' Episode 310 is titled "Left Behind" and it airs Wednesday, January 21, 2015, 8 pm.

Now, if you're wondering about the fate of Oliver after episode 309 you might be interested in what star Stephen Amell shared on his Facebook page. Amell thanked fans for their feedback and said the show was bigger than one character. However, notice he says "we're going to..." - definitely a hint that we haven't seen the last of Oliver.

"Facebook. Thank you so much for the enthusiasm spilling out of tonight’s fall finale. I’ve never had anywhere near this amount of feedback. And by feedback, I mostly mean swear words. There were an awful lot of expletives. 

Seriously though: Despite the title, our show is bigger than any one character. We’re going to prove that to you.  

Sit tight… January will be here in no time. xo  

(And look Mom… I’m totally fine.)" - Stephen Amell
