First Official Photos from Arrow Season 3 Premiere, “The Calm”

The Calm

People always say that there’s a calm before the storm. Well, we have our first look at “The Calm,” which is the title of the season three premiere of Arrow, with these just recently released photos from The CW. My only questions now is simple: what’s the storm going to look like this season?

In the photos below, you can get your first official look at what Oliver, Felicity, Sara, Laurel, and Quentin will all be up to when season three of Arrow begins on Wednesday, Oct. 8, and even though everything looks pretty standard, knowing Arrow, I’m sure there will be some crazy stuff happening during its third season premiere. Some minor questions I had while looking at these new pictures were, “Why is Quentin talking to the press?” and “Why does it look like Oliver is walking away from Felicity? Is this before or after their big date?” We’ll have to wait until the episode actually airs to have these questions answered, but it’s always fun to speculate. Plus, there’s a photo of Sara as the Canary, and that’s always awesome to see.

Arrow is easily my most anticipated show of the fall, and I’m guessing that it’s many other people’s choice as well. The series had an excellent second season (one of the best I’ve ever seen from any TV show), providing us with the emergence of a fantastic villain in Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, pitch perfect development of the romance between Oliver and Felicity, great strengthening of somewhat weaker characters like Laurel, Roy, and Thea, and nonstop action from the first episode through the season two finale. To put simply, Arrow was and is everything a superhero show should be, and by the looks of things, season three will only solidify that fact even more.

Check out all the photos from the the season three premiere of Arrow below.
