‘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.

Writer Sydney Bucksbaum likes to think her hobby of watching insane amounts of TV isn't an obsession... it's not an obsession, okay, so just drop it! As the resident CW-lover on the Hollywood.com staff, she truly believes her Clark Kent/Dean Winchester/Damon Salvatore/Lucas Scott/Oliver Queen/Chuck Bass/Seymour Birkhoff/Wade Kinsella/Vincent Keller/Micah Barnes is out there somewhere, waiting for her, in real life (just go with it). After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism, Sydney has made it her mission to campaign for more shirtless scenes for her favorite CW hunks. You're welcome.
