Before It Airs Again:The 'Legacy' Of 'Arrow'

Arrow returns to television sets tonight and what better way to get you in the mood then to give a brief of what to expect from it. In here you'll find trailers, stills, a synopsis, and comments from the show's producer Wendy Mericle. Enjoy!


Trailers and other footage:

The show's producer Wendy Mericle had an interview with Variety, she discussed many things but here's a few I found interesting, like how Oliver is dealing with mayor duties, being an one man army at night, and lastly the villain.

Oliver dealing with being mayor:
He’s sort of not dealing with it at all. He went into it with very big ambitions, but we come to find in the premiere that those ambitions ran into reality and, for the time being, the most effective way he can help the city is by being the Green Arrow. Over the season we’re going to evolve that. We haven’t seen him in a real-job capacity since Season 2 and now that he’s grown up a bit and evolved as a character, it’s fun to see him tackle these real-world problems.

Oliver being an one man army:
He likes to be out on his own — it’s where he started. This season we’re really trying to honor our roots and go back to ideas and themes that we had in season one, and this is one of them. He’s still got Felicity in the bunker but Dig and Thea are gone, and Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) is unfortunately gone. But he’s out there fighting the good fight on his own. That’s quickly going to change, mostly because Felicity starts to turn him, but he also starts to think about the reality of what this life is like. It takes a toll on you physically and emotionally and Oliver starts to realize it isn’t something he can do on his own.

On the new villain, Tobias Church:
He has a very simple drive. He’s a gangster, he’s a drug dealer and he wants to make Star City his newest playground. It’s very straightforward and again, an homage to the types of villains we saw in Season 1.

I will end this "Before It Airs Again" much like how I did for The Flash show with the synopsis for the season premiere which is called "Legacy". I'll continue this type of briefing for Legends and Supergirl as well.

NEW BEGINNINGS — After Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) death and the departures of both Diggle (David Ramsey) and Thea (Willa Holland) from Team Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) takes to the streets solo to protect Star City’s citizens as the Green Arrow. With Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) guiding him from the bunker, Oliver is forced to deal with a city that has become overrun with both criminals and a slew of new (and painfully inexperienced) vigilantes. Watching Oliver try to balance his jobs as both the mayor and also the protector of Star City, Felicity suggests he form a new team, but Oliver resists. However, when a deadly new criminal, Tobias Church (guest star Chad L. Coleman), enters the picture, Oliver realizes the best thing for the city might be a new team of superheroes. Meanwhile, the flashbacks take us to Russia where Oliver faces off against the Bratva. James Bamford directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Wendy Mericle (#501).  Original airdate 10/5/2016.
