With Arrow returning from its winter hiatus this week, the cast and crew of the CW series were on hand this weekend at PaleyFest to talk about the final episodes of the show’s third season and debut an extended trailer. Today, the network has made that that trailer available online. The new sizzle reel picks up with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) on the hunt for The Arrow (Stephen Amell), and teases the return of the Suicide Squad, Nyssa (Katrina Law) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) getting in on a lot of the action, and Detective Lance’s (Paul Blackthorne) warpath against Ollie.
Check out the full trailer below, and be aware there are spoilers.
“There is a prophecy: the man who doesn’t perish at the blade of Ra’s al Ghul, will become Ra’s al Ghul”, warns Malcolm (John Barrowman). Following his resurrection, Ollie must deal with his new destiny to become the leader of the League of Assassins, and if this trailer is any indication, he’s considering it. In Christina’s PaleyFest coverage, series creator Andrew Kreisberg revealed that “After the end of Season 3, the show will never be the same again.” If Ollie takes over the League of Assassins, that would definitely change the show. Now, that’s not terribly likely (or not likely to last if it does come to pass), but this sizzle reel is definitely setting up Team Arrow for a rocky path to the season finale.
What do you think? Is Ollie on the path to becoming the next Ra’s? How will the big season finale go down? Sound off below. Arrow returns to The CW this Wednesday, March 18th, at 8PM.
