First Official Synopsis For Season Three Of ARROW Released

With the third season of Arrow getting closer, The CW have released the first official synopsis for the series, hinting at a new relationship for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), the return of a villain from the past and a MAJOR SPOILER. Hit the jump for further details...

By Josh Wilding - 7/10/2014

In the aftermath of this victory, Season Three opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen – not as long as the city needs The Arrow.


Some intriguing new details on season three of Arrow, though the biggest has to be the reveal that Laurel's father survives and is now Starling City's police captain. We'll likely learn more about this when the comic book prequel (set between the events of seasons two and three) is released on September 1st. Arrow returns to The CW on October 8th. What do you guys think?

Heck yes !!! I love this show so much... I can't wait to see who the villian for this season will be.

Proceeds to roll eyes.

Cool.

Putting Oliver & Felicity together would be the 1st bad move they've made in my opinion...we saw Oliver with a Felicity-type in Smallville, can we please have Oliver & Laurel (as Black Canary).
CherryBomb - 7/10/2014, 3:18 AM
Why couldn't they just keep Felicity as Ollie's friend?
Can't an attractive man and women be FRIENDS without needing to be anything more? :/ I like Felicity to be the "Chloe" to Oliver, nothing romantic, some teases of the idea but purely unrequited.

MERLYN BABY YEAH

I'm genuinely surprised that Klone isn't extremely enthusiastic about Arrow.
McGee - 7/10/2014, 3:19 AM
Next he'll say he didn't like Man of Steel!

Heh heh! That's an inside joke to you newbies, as everyone knows Klone gushes about Snyder's film and never goes out of his way to comment on things he doesn't care about.
H3LLBLAZER - 7/10/2014, 3:22 AM
Proceeds to punch Klone in the face.

Man the later half of this year is going to be intense for comic book tv shows!
Oreos91 - 7/10/2014, 3:25 AM
The producers should not force an Ollie/Felicity ship because the fangirls want it.

It never looked right to me.

I think I might have seen this synopsis before but for different episode.

Anyway, roll on October.
maarcther1pper - 7/10/2014, 3:28 AM
Definitely Merlin
Maven - 7/10/2014, 3:33 AM
I'd take Felicity and Oliver over Felicity and every darn [male] guest star on the show.
mgeoff88 - 7/10/2014, 3:33 AM
Oh wow... I thought for sure he was a goner. So Oliver and Felicity will be dating? That's interesting. After the tease in the season finale, I figured the writers would hold off on making them a couple for a long time.

@McGee I'm genuinely surprised that you're genuinely surprised that Klone isn't extremely enthusiastic about Arrow.
H3LLBLAZER - 7/10/2014, 3:38 AM
Oliver has to hit that.
mgeoff88 - 7/10/2014, 3:39 AM
I'm also genuinely surprised that Gusto remembers his login information for this site.

I guess doing those crossword puzzles helps keep his old mind sharp.
BatManiac - 7/10/2014, 3:41 AM
Laurel is NOT a fan of Olicity.

SuperSomething616 - 7/10/2014, 3:42 AM
Yeah boy!
Klone - 7/10/2014, 3:46 AM
Well, I'm not an old ginger man so... hmmm...

Also, I take it Oliver gets his company back and isn't forced to live on the streets?
SonGoku - 7/10/2014, 3:47 AM
So Olicity's going to be a thing?

Klone - 7/10/2014, 3:48 AM
Olicity?

...The [frick]?
Klone - 7/10/2014, 3:50 AM
Why the hell do people want this thing anyways? This may only be what I think, not sure, but I can see no chemistry between these two characters and the actors portraying them as lovers. Friends, yes, but lovers? It's non existent chemistry to me. Anyways, shipping... uggheer

@Klone

Oh, you're the ginger man alright.
codydriscollsrightarm - 7/10/2014, 3:53 AM
I love how some people want Laurel/Oliver to happen just cus it's from the comics.

[frick] that shit. TV is TV. Comics are Comics.

Felicity > Laurel.
codydriscollsrightarm - 7/10/2014, 3:54 AM
Well, you can't see the chemistry.

Seems like a most people can.

I love their scenes, personally. So I'm happy.
Maven - 7/10/2014, 3:57 AM
I hope Grant comes back early in the season rather than Amell popping up in Flash again. They need to tie up 2x09's ending for those who (may have) had no idea what was going on. Lol.
Maven - 7/10/2014, 3:58 AM
Also, is 2x09's ending canon anymore? The Flash acts out that scene very differently. A few kept shots.
BatManiac - 7/10/2014, 3:59 AM
Olicity isn't happening. Felicity is going to date Ray Palmer.
Klone - 7/10/2014, 3:59 AM
*looks in mirror*

No... no I think you're mistaken. Definitely human.
JFogg - 7/10/2014, 4:00 AM
CAN THEY PLEASE JUST CALL HIM THE GREEN ARROW?!
Klone - 7/10/2014, 4:00 AM
When have fans on this website (only on this site) EVER given a shit about the relationships? Did ANY of you give a [frick] about the bullshit between Roy and annoying child sister?
Klone - 7/10/2014, 4:01 AM
@JFogg

The show once mentioned the name "Green Arrow" to be followed up with the word "lame".
Klone - 7/10/2014, 4:03 AM
@cody

As friends it works... whenever they've ever played with the idea of them being lovers, the chemistry immediately becomes painful to me. Sorry, it does not work to me.
Maven - 7/10/2014, 4:03 AM
@JFogg

Hopefully this season. They have no other names to jump to...




Unless they go as far as "The Bow"...
Maven - 7/10/2014, 4:04 AM
... The Mask... The Quiver...



Dammit.
SonGoku - 7/10/2014, 4:04 AM
Seems like Felicity's going to start falling for ever male guest star now.
