Arrow Extended Preview: New Faces and New Attitudes

by Clarissa / September 4, 2014

It’s been several months since Oliver and his friends took down Slade Wilson when Arrow returns for its upcoming third season and the Arrow gang has been taking care of business in Starling City. As both Diggle and Laurel mention in a new extended preview, the criminals of Starling City are either behind bars or running scared from the vigilante. Meanwhile, Oliver and Felicity are headed out on a date and Roy is officially Oliver’s trainee.

Life may be good for our characters now, but surely this happiness can’t last. A new villain — Ra’s al Ghul — will be coming to town and he’ll be a formidable enemy for Oliver and his friends. Brandon Routh also joins the cast as Ray Palmer, a businessman who is interested in Queen Consolidated and — more specifically — Felicity. And Thea is learning to kick some butt after reconnecting with her biological father, Malcolm. But will she use her new fighting skills for good or evil?

Watch a new extended preview below for season 3 of Arrow, premiering on Wednesday, October 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
