New ‘Arrow’ Trailer Teases a Prison Break and Long-Awaited Hook-Up (Video)

Final five episodes of CW drama’s third season returns on April 15

Things have been getting increasingly dramatic on The CW’s “Arrow,” and in a new trailer teasing the final five episodes of the show’s third season, Starling City’s resident superhero brigade will be going through even more changes.

Last we left off, Roy (Colton Haynes) had turned himself in to the police in order to free Oliver (Stephen Amell), who had been publicly outed as the Arrow. When things pick back up, Roy is insistent that he do Oliver’s time for him, but the real vigilante isn’t having it – and plans a prison break for his sidekick.

Meanwhile, Oliver seems to finally be acquiescing to Ra’s Al Ghul’s (Matt Nable) demand that he become his successor, and is seen embracing his new role as Heir to the Demon.

But the part of the trailer that will have most fans’ tongues wagging is a scene involving Oliver and long-suffering Gal Friday, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), since the two have been dancing around their feelings for each other for three seasons now.

Despite the fact that she’s still with Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) — who appears to be ready to join Team Arrow himself — a roaring fire and some alone time with Oliver appears to prove too tempting for the tech genius.

“Arrow” returns with the final five episodes of Season 3 on Wednesday, Apr. 15 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
