‘Arrow’ Spoilers: Episode 4×02 Title Revealed

Filming on Arrow‘s second episode of season 4 begins today (July 23), and executive producer Marc Guggenheim has shared the script page featuring an episode title that has our minds swirling with speculation.

Episode 4×02 is titled “The Candidate,” and is written by Marc Guggenheim and Keto Shimizu and directed by John Behring.

Could the episode title be a nod towards a comic storyline in which Oliver Queen runs for mayor? It seems too obvious and thus most likely not the case, as we’re sure Guggenheim would’ve kept that episode title under wraps. Episode 4×02 is also the episode where Mr. Terrific (Echo Kellum) and Anarky (Alexander Calvert) are set to debut. In fact, Kellum shared this photo of him on set with Willa Holland.

A couple of days ago, Calvert shared a picture of his script hinting that this episode is going to be “violent.”

Arrow returns for its season 4 premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c on The CW.
