Arrow Sneak Peeks: Oliver Will Fight His Fears in the Premiere

by Clarissa / October 6, 2014

By all accounts, Oliver is happy going into season 3 of Arrow. While he tragically lost his mother in season 2 and had a lot of problems with his company, he did manage to defeat Slade Wilson. When the show returns, a few months will have passed since the end of season 2 and life is relatively normal for everyone. Crime is even hitting an all-time low in Starling City thanks to the work of Team Arrow. Diggle will become a father, Lance will be promoted to Captain and Laurel will join Team Arrow’s inner circle.

Of course, that’s not going to last. A new villain (guest star Peter Stormare) emerges and he has claimed the name of Vertigo from the recently deceased Count. Oliver will face off against him and then, under the influence of the drugs, against himself. Plus, as Oliver fights to regain control of Queen Consolidated, a new opponent emerges: Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who will start paying a lot of attention to Felicity.

Watch two sneak peeks below from the season premiere of Arrow airing on Wednesday, October 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
