If you've been watching Arrow for any real length of time, you're probably already aware of this, but if you're new here, let me fill you in on a little secret: The CW is really good at putting together trailers for Arrow that get the blood pumping and psych you up for whatever's about to come next, but then the episodes that follow rarely live up to the hype. That is why I'm approaching this new, just-released, kickass midseason trailer with hesitation. The trailer offers up another possible candidate for who's in the grave that was featured in the Season 4 premiere, teases the return of Colton Haynes' Roy, and shows another new player throwing their hat into the ring in the race of mayor of Star City, a town that's basically just abandoned warehouses and tarp, as far as I can tell.
Check it out:
What do you think? Is Thea in the grave? What's up with Felicity? And do you agree with Merlyn's assessment of Ollie?
Arrow returns Wednesday, January 20 at 8pm on The CW.
