All is fair and love and war in this new extended trailer for the March 23 return of Arrow.
“It just doesn’t seem fair that I can save a city and not save my relationship,” Oliver previews, which hints that this temporary separation between him and Felicity is going to gut us more than we could’ve imagined. But it’s angst. And angst is good.
Following Oliver’s lie about his son William, Felicity decided to take a break from their relationship after Oliver proved that he can’t be open with her. And after this new promo — and THIS photo that executive producer Marc Guggenheim shared of Oliver and Felicity at the altar that is not a hallucination, dream, or alternate reality, it sounds like Cupid is here to reunite the lovebirds.
“Felicity convinced me that we could save the city and not surrender to the darkness,” Oliver says. “But I don’t think we can.”
DO NOT THINK THAT WAY OLIVER. You need to earn Felicity’s trust back. Be the man she knows you to be.
“Tell death do us part,” Cupid chimes, which has me wondering if Cupid knew of Oliver and Felicity’s engagement and upcoming wedding, then learned that they wouldn’t be getting married, and is now trying to force a happily ever after? Whatever it is it’s f-ing cruel considering the fact Oliver and Felicity just split — temporarily, as we all know. But cruel nonetheless.
Also, it sounds like H.I.V.E. is moving forward with Genesis — without Damien Darhk, which hints that perhaps Maclcolm Merlyn has found another organization to lead. You know Malcolm, always searching for power.
Arrow returns after a grueling three-week hiatus — that’s four weeks without new episodes — on Wednesday, March 23 at 8/7c on The CW.
