Fall TV Preview

New Arrow Promo Teases Bad-Ass Thea, Tough Laurel and, Yeah, That Kiss

A new, all-too-brief promo for Arrow Season 3 has been making rounds (courtesy of our friends in the Great White North), and it offers a li’l something for nearly everyone.

In a flurry of snippets, Oliver reminds us that there is more to learn about his past, there’s a taste of what Thea has been up to under Daddy Dearest’s tutelage, we see Laurel rough up a tough…. All of which feeds into what showrunner Marc Guggenheim says is this season’s theme: identity.

“Who are you? Are you your mask? Are you your job? Are you your relationships?” he posed during our Fall Preview Q&A. “What’s cool about it is it’s not just a theme that relates to Oliver, as our past themes have. Every member of our ensemble is dealing with this question.”

And, yes, the promo also previews what has been all the talk of the interwebs since a lo-fi version of the video circulated — Oliver pulls a certain blonde computer whiz in for a kiss. (But why do we have the feeling said buss will get busted up, by work, “Superman” or whatevs…?)

Arrow Season 3 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8/7c.
