Arrow Season 4 First Look

While Season 3 definitely had a lot more Olicity than usual, I think it was the weakest season thus far. Still, I am somewhat excited about Season 4 of Arrow returning on October 7. I am hoping it will get better again, take a look at what’s coming:

So, what were some things we saw? What can you expect from the Season? [SPOILERS]

  • Apparently Starling City gets renamed into Star City in Ray’s memorial. Guess they haven’t heard of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow yet. The promo also features the return of Sara Lance, who emerges from the Lazarus Pit and turns into White Canary who will be part of  the Legends of Tomorrow cast as well. I am so looking forward to that show. In the unlikely event that you haven’t seen the trailer, click here.
  • The Arrow retired, but is needed again. Obviously … because what else would the show be about. However, it did look mighty cute to see Olicity in a suburban setting. BUT Olicity never gets a break and instead Oli will get a new love interest. I am sorry Elysia Rotaru, but I am afraid I won’t like your character much … so far not a lot of details have been revealed about her, but she’ll be in flashbacks a lot.
  • Diggle gets a helmet, I don’t know how I feel about it. Cristina @MyTinyObsession posted a picture yesterday and it looked very Magneto-ish.
  • There will be a crossover with Constantine. I have to admit that I didn’t watch the show, so I am neither excited nor scared nor any other feeling. If you have watched Constantine, tell me about what you think!
  • Jimmy Akingbola was cast as Arrow’s new nemesis Baron Reiter, who will get a different backstory because they do not intend to let him turn into Baron Blitzkreig in the TV show.
  • Other new cast members include Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk, Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt (aka Mr. Terrific) and Alexander Calvert as Anarky.

I bet I forgot something, but let’s talk about that in the comments. What are your thoughts?

  1. Wow, seriously? Sara is back? That girl just can’t stay dead, huh?

    And hmm Felicity with a machine gun… I never thought she and Oliver had any chemistry. Their whole thing was too weird and unbelievable.

    Ray died? I had totally forgotten that. I remember the last scene, Oliver and Felicity driving away in a convertible and that’s about it.

    Hmm we’ll see… Don’t think I will be straining to watch this one much.


    • Well, Sara and Ray (who is not really dead) will be back in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Sara will be the White Canary from now on. The show will be introduced during some crossover with the Flash and Arrow, which is probably the reason they showed Sara in this promo.

      I like Olicity, but then again I think I just ship Felicity with everyone because she is pretty much my favourite character on the show.

      • Ah, interesting.

        Meh, I think Felicity had so much more chemistry with Ray. They had the same kind of humour!

        It’s weird that they say people out of the magic pool are not the same and yet Oliver’s sister seemed pretty much her old self, except for that bit in the beginning.

        This is one of my least favourite things in these shows and a big part of why I lose interest in them – they kill and resurrect characters much too easily *shrugs*


      • I think Felicity had great chemistry with Barry Allen hahaha again, I just like her with everyone.

        Thea is not the same. That will be a big part of this season and one of the reasons why Oli will have to come back out of “retirement”.

        Well, as for killing a lot of people. Ray was never actually dead. His nanites just shrunk him and he survived the explosion, but it took him a while to figure out how to reverse it or something like that.

      • Oh right, Barry! Yeah they were cute together as well.

        Wow really? He shrunk? I never knew! Cool. Weeell I guess I may watch the odd episode after all, you got me curious 🙂
