We are not only two months way from the return of Arrow on CW. It’s been announced that the first episode is called Green Arrow, so something will need to happen for him to finally claim that name. Will this something be because of what he does, or possibly a new characters does. Along with the main cast returning, there are three new characters being introduced.
According to ET Thea will be given a new love interest in the form Alex Davis, who will be played by Parker Young. Alex will take a job working for Oliver Queen, Green Arrow, and that’s how he gets to meet Thea. Alex Davis doesn’t have any tie-ins to the DC comic universe, so he won’t be becoming a super hero or villain unless it turns out that he has a different name or a character gets a new origin story.
The Wrap is reporting that Rutina Wesley will be joining the cast for a multi-episode arc, but there’s no word on if she will be playing a created character like Alex Davis or if she’ll be tied to something bigger. One rumor is that she may be linked to Mr. Terrific who will also be making is debut this season.
The final new character being introduced won’t be in the current story, but a former love interest in Oliver’s flashback. ET is reporting that Elysia Rotaru will be in the flashbacks only and according to executive producer Marc Guggeneim
Oliver is gonna have a love interest in the past that will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present
With two months left, there are a lot of speculation and rumors being thrown around but no will know exactly what’s in story for the gang until early October.
