A new action-packed trailer for Arrow Season 5 dropped Wednesday (Sept. 28), and it’s got about a million things we need to discuss.
At the top of the list, however, is a newer, darker Oliver (Stephen Amell). Ever since Tommy’s (Colin Donnell) death in Season 1, Oliver made a pledge not to kill the bad guys he goes after. In Season 5, that pledge has apparently become a distant memory. Oliver is darker and more violent than ever in these new clips.
At the same time, there’s a new vigilante in town, and we’re not talking about the kids Oliver is training to take over the new team.
The Dark Archer has it in for the Green Arrow, and he’s not exactly the type to pull punches if the peek at his trail of victims is any indication.
This season of Arrow might be the darkest yet, which is certainly saying something.
Another shot we know you didn’t miss is the kiss between Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and a guy who definitely is not Oliver.
Granted, it’s a bad angle and there’s a teeny, tiny chance this scruffy dude in a leather jacket is actually Oliver Queen … but we’re not counting on it. We’ve spent considerable time admiring Oliver’s profile (what, we’re human!) and this just doesn’t line up. Sorry, Olicity fans.
Is this her new boyfriend we’ve been hearing so much about? How does Oliver feel about this guy? And how long with Felicity be able to keep her “night life” on the DL before her new beau starts to get suspicious?
All questions we’re dying for Season 5 to answer!
Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. on CW33.
