Arrow Season 7 Video: Oliver's Enemies In Jail Threaten Felicity
Arrow returns Monday night on The CW, but here's a clip to keep you distracted.
Should you poke a caged animal? That's a question being asked in the Season 7 premiere of Arrow, which finds Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) locked up in prison with a small army of guys he's personally put there while under the Green Arrow hood.
Two of those men in particular, Danny "Brick" Brickwell (Vinnie Jones) and Derek Sampson (Cody Runnels) have their sights set on Oliver for an interesting reason. While they most certainly want him beaten or dead--and there will be plenty of jailhouse fighting in the new season--the two also realize they can make use of him.
In a new exclusive clip from the Season 7 premiere episode, which you can watch above, Brick approaches Oliver in his cell, with Sampson blocking the Green Arrow's only possible exit. He then offers a simple deal; he and Sampson have a "side hustle" that requires three men and Oliver is their third. When Oliver refuses, Brick holds up a photo of Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and William (Jack Moore), adding, "Here's two reasons why I don't believe you."
At this point, Oliver doesn't exactly have options. As images from the first episode show, even under witness protection, Felicity can be attacked. Meanwhile, making contact with the outside world isn't all that easy.
This is the sort of situation the imprisoned vigilante will likely face more than once as Season 7 rolls on. With Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) still looking for revenge, the threats against Oliver, his family, and the rest of the team are at an all-time high.
Arrow airs Mondays at 8 PM ET on The CW.
