The more that we learn about the upcoming season 3 premiere of “Arrow,” and the more we understanding the meaning of the title “The Calm.” After all, it feels fairly clear that there is a storm coming up for some of our beloved characters, and we have to see whether or not they are really prepared for it.
Today, The CW released a lengthy synopsis all about the episode, and it tells you quite a bit. Felicity will fall on hard times financially, Diggle gets used to life as a father, and we start to see just how Ray Palmer enters the world of the show. Want to know more in terms of what you can expect? Then take a look below:
“With crime in Starling City at an all-time low thanks to the Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his team, Oliver thinks he can finally balance being both the Arrow and Oliver Queen and asks Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) out on a date. However, when a new villain (guest star Peter Stormare) emerges, who has claimed the name Vertigo from the recently deceased Count, Oliver is caught off-guard and someone close to him is hurt. Oliver and a newly suited up Roy (Colton Haynes) take on the Count. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) becomes a father, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is promoted to Captain, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) joins Arrow’s inner circle and Felicity gets a part-time job at a tech store to make ends meet. Also, Oliver fights to regain his company, Queen Consolidated, but comes up against a very worthy opponent – the charming Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh).”
