New Arrow Photos: Punk Rock Felicity, Oliver In Jail, And More
By Chris E. Hayner | @ChrisHayner on
Arrow fans are in for a very different Season 7. With Oliver (Stephen Amell) in prison, cut off from the rest of his team, the Green Arrow isn't able to protect Star City; he also can't protect himself.
The first batch of photos for the new season have been released, keeping a literal divide Oliver and those he cares about most. While his face can't be seen clearly, it's easy to tell the slammer isn't doing Oliver any favors--he's battered and bruised. What else did they think would happen when they tossed in the rich vigilante with all of the guys he's captured over the years?
Another face seen in the photos, visiting Oliver, is Diggle (David Ramsey). Ramsey previously confirmed to GameSpot that he would be one of Oliver's only allies in prison as the two have put their differences behind them and are now friends once again. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll be much help to the imprisoned Green Arrow, though.
The only other character shows in the photos is Oliver's wife, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). She looks quite a bit different than fans last saw her, though. Felicity and William, Oliver's son, have gone into witness protection after he was imprisoned, which seemed to come with a makeover. Now she has pink hair and a nose ring. We are here for punk rock Felicity. She's almost as cool as goth Felicity was in Season 5.
While these images don't show much in the way of action, the first trailer for the new season was packed with it. As Oliver faces off against some of his old foes--including Cody Rhodes returning as Derek Sampson--the fights are going to be utterly vicious. Hopefully, Oliver gets out of all of those alive and reunites with his team sooner, rather than later.
Arrow returns Monday, October 15, on The CW. Before then, make sure to check out all of the spoilers and teases we know about the show so far.
