The New Arrow Trailer Features Lots of Bad Guys Getting Stuck (VIDEO)

By Tim Surette

One of the more pleasant stories of the 2012-2013 TV season is that NBC is back in last place among the Big 4 networks, so we can all cool it on our suicide pacts. Another promising tale is that of The CW's Arrow, which has become the network's most-watched show and is slowly erasing the memory of H8R from our brains. I know the series is a favorite around these parts, so I figured at least a few of you would get a kick out of this new midseason trailer, released hot on the heels of yesterday's Season 2 renewal.

The video features a lot of what we want to see: Oliver Queen putting on his hoodie and poking bad guys with arrows! But we also see what appears to be Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Oliver (Stephen Amell) lying in bed in various states of undress! Looks like it takes 13 episodes to forgive your ex for sleeping with your dead sister.


Arrow airs Wednesday nights at 8pm on The CW.

    This show gets surprisingly better each episode. And I just started watching it as something to pass the time. If only they can fix that awful synth soundtrack then I might say it's better than decent. Really. It kills it.

    but those ppl gettin shot at where from episodes that have been aired already.. onli thing different is laurel and oliver in bed

  • Aesandil Feb 13, 2013

    The show is decent (and has occasionally been quite good), but smarter writing would help things a lot. Island flashbacks look interesting as usual.

    It'll be great if they can pair Nikita and Arrow together.

  • DonovanBrown Feb 13, 2013

    Ten bucks says the oliver/laurel scene is a dream sequence or a flashback.

  • DonovanBrown Feb 14, 2013

    I might have to give this series another chance.

    This preview is very encouraging. Unless they are tricking us, it looks like the show wiil be focusing more on the mythology of the show. I don't think its going to become serialized anytime soon, but there will be story arcs that last the season and there will be more depth to the overall narrative. Comparable in my opinion to seasons 4-6 of Smallville (season 5 is my 2nd fav) or seasons 3 (season 3 is my fav) and 4 of Fringe. If the show can get to the quality of these 2 shows, I will be very pleased. I don't think the show is there just yet and has a bit of a ways to go, but the couple of episodes before the last were pretty good and the last episode was very good, plus like I said the preview is very encouraging. Hopefully the show can continue to improve.

    The next episode looks to be building on the previous ones in both the depth of story and the quality of television. I like that Felicity will find out about Oliver. I like her in that Chloe role for Arrow, I think she will not only be a good addition for the team, but a good addition to the show. But who knows she could want no part of it (I doubt it tho).

    What's going on, Tim? Are you taking over Arrow from Noel?

  • JeremyStratten Feb 13, 2013

    Tim reports the news around here. This is news.

  • prowly Feb 13, 2013

    Thanks for the explanation. I was joking though.

  • SarahHagen2 Feb 13, 2013

    Eh, undress scene will be a dream or somethin, they always pull that crap.
