TV Line runs down a list of tips from the likes of Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards and other members of the Arrow cast and creative team on what's still to come on Arrow season 2.

  • Stephen Amell says that even though Sara (Caity Lotz) and Roy (Colton Haynes)are in the Arrowcave, he says the core of Team Arrow will remain Oliver, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). "I mean, there's myself, Diggle and Felicity -- and everybody else for the moment is just kind of a visitor."

  • On why Oliver hooks up with Sara, when earlier in the season, he told Felicity that he can't date someone he cares about because of the dangerous nature of how he spends his nights fighting on rooftops. Essentially, it boils down to the fact that Sara can take care of herself. Said Amell, "Part of what Oliver said to Felicity in that episode is that he doesn't know if he's willing to open himself up to having feelings for her, if in fact he does, because the danger is so imminent when you're in close proximity to him.... Him working with her and her working with him is one thing, but a relationship is another."

  • David Ramsey said The Suicide Squad episode has a huge payoff for the Season 2 finale. "There's a bigger story with the Suicide Squad and ... their involvement perhaps with Team Arrow in the future. There's a lot of set-up for the season finale.... Big stuff."

  • The current arc with Manu Bennett's Slade Wilson is something the Arrow showrunners planed over a year ago says executive producer Marc Guggenheim. "We knew that John Barrowman's character [of Malcolm Merlyn] would be the Big Bad of Season 1. And we knew that if Manu [Bennett] worked out, in success he would be the Big Bad of Season 2. So this was always the plan. And it's exciting, because we are literally shooting stuff, and moments, that we talked about over a year ago."

There's a few more tidbits on Thea (Willa Holland), Moira (Sussana Thompson) and Sin (Bex Taylor-Klaus) over at the source so click the link at the top to head over to TV Line. Based on all that's transpire so far and the hints just provided, where do you think Season 2 is headed over the next 10 episodes? There was a big hint about H.I.V.E. revealed recently that hasn't progressed very far but it sounds like we'll be coming back to that element in Diggle's standalone episode.

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."

I really don't want Slade to die... Incapacitate him or something, just don't kill him.
OldBenKenobi - 2/24/2014, 11:24 PM

I actually sent this to Nate already, but I haven't heard back from him yet.

@r0njeremy The big name drop was Ra's al Ghul.
Luminus - 2/24/2014, 11:58 PM
^No it wasn't. The name drop is coming.
BatmanRobinNightwing - 2/25/2014, 12:35 AM
@Mgeoff88 no that wasnt the name drop. Its still coming. I believe its ep 15-16(i could be wrong) but for sure the name drop wasnt Ra's
TheRealistStarLord - 2/25/2014, 12:38 AM

HAHAHAHA dat picture! Nice!

Stephen Amell is consider a rare actor to have those assets to have a good acting ability and also psychically makes his own stunts mostly. He might not be a great-all-out actor, but for his background, he is not that all bad, he can be improved eventually.
mgeoff88 - 2/25/2014, 12:40 AM
@Luminus You're right. His name was already dropped before Stephen Amell made that announcement.
AstroZombie - 2/25/2014, 12:53 AM
Ra's Al Ghul should be the big bad of season 3.

Can't fricken wait! Oliver and the Suicide Squad vs Slade Wilson! Maybe include Merlyn as well..
MrCamw1 - 2/25/2014, 7:59 AM
I'm still hoping that Slade and Merlyn meet each other.
NicolausCopernicus - 2/25/2014, 8:22 AM
almost shure thah the clock king will join the squad

also, maybe the "first vigilante" is the guardian, james harper, roy´s great-uncle?
antoineflemming - 2/25/2014, 8:44 AM
They aren't going to kill the only black cast member on the show...
NicolausCopernicus - 2/25/2014, 9:22 AM

besides, they include him in the official continuity now... (Green Arrow #25)
JorEllinator - 2/25/2014, 1:47 PM
I hope the name drop somehow connects to the DCCU, Arrow and Flash are the only glimmers hope I have for DC in other media. Maybe Olly's old friend, Bruce or maybe Zod's invasion.
BubSnikt - 2/25/2014, 3:08 PM
@420 so much swag tho

The name drop seems like it could be Batman. On imdb, episode 20 said that Ollie was going to visit a businessman in Gotham. Anyone can edit imdb, but what if the editor was an actual source?
MericawithanM - 2/25/2014, 6:39 PM
@mcgee I have been waiting since the series started to see him bust out that arrow haha
