ARROW’s second season is almost upon us. In anticipation of the show’s return, The CW have released the official synopsis for the first episode of the upcoming season. Titled ‘City of Heroes’, the official word is as follows:
“From VIGILANTE TO HERO – Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) travel to Lian Yu in search of Oliver (Stephen Amell) who left Starling City after The Undertaking. Convinced to return home, Oliver finds that things are in worse shape than he thought – Isabel Rochev (guest star Summer Glau) is preparing a hostile takeover of Queen Consolidated, Thea (Willa Holland) refuses to visit Moira (Susanna Thompson) in jail, Roy (Colton Haynes) is trying to fill the void left by the Arrow’s absence, and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is working with the District Attorney’s office to take down the vigilante. Meanwhile, flashbacks to the island show Slade (Manu Bennett), Shado (guest star Celina Jade) and Oliver in a desperate situation. John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim.”
Of course, ‘The Undertaking’ refers to ‘destroying the shit out of the city’, as done by Malcolm Merlyn at the end of Season 1. In Oliver’s quest to rebuild the city (hopefully soon to be renamed Star City), it seems as if the show is set to pick up where the fantastic Season 1 left off.
Season 2 of ARROW is set to premiere on The CW on 9th October, with the UK airing following a few days after that.
