‘Arrow’: First Look at Echo Kellum as Mr. Terrific

Things are looking, dare we say, terrific in the Arrow fandom.

With just one week to go until Arrow returns for its new season, The CW is building upon our excitement with these new photos of Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt, aka Mr. Terrific, via TV Insider.

In the photos, we get a look at Curtis under duress of the emotional kind, and we’re guessing that it has to do with some sort of physical duress moments prior. There’s also a shot of him with Felicity, who will introduce us to the character as Holt will be a new employee of Felicity’s at Palmer Technologies.

The captions for the photos indicate that these are images from Arrow‘s third episode of the new season, titled “Restoration.” Also, Felicity and Curtis seem to be preparing for danger, as they pack up with guns.

But we can’t help but wonder where these photos are taking place. Is this a secret underground part of Palmer Technologies or does Curtis become a part of Team Arrow much sooner than we could’ve imagined? The background certainly looks like the shots we’ve gotten of the temporary new Arrow lair. Hmm… Basically, Arrow season 4 cannot come soon enough.

Arrow season 4 premieres next Wednesday at 8/7c on The CW.
