‘Arrow’ Fan Favorite Gets a Promotion, Plus a New Trailer


Arrow fans are having the best week ever. Following the drama’s early Season 2 renewal comes the even better news that fan favorite character Felicity Smoake – Oliver Queen’s quirky, go-to I.T. girl – will be around a lot more next season. That’s right, Emily Bett Rickards has been promoted to series regular for Season 2.

But wait — there’s more!  Check out this extended, two-minute-long cinematic trailer The CW just released for the next few episodes of the action-packed show. Is that Oliver (Stephen Amell) in bed with Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) — or just another flashback? Is Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) training Oliver on the island — or fighting him? Are we finally going to see Oliver’s transformation into Arrow on the island? And why is Diggle (David Ramsey) using a defibrillator on Oliver? We also get our first (fleeting) glimpse of Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), Thea’s (Willa Holland) new love interest.
