'Arrow' preview: Willa Holland teases Thea's 'major turning point'

On Wednesday night’s Arrow, Thea Queen (Willa Holland) is in the clutches of vengeful Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), and their time together will be anything but easy for the teen-turned-nightclub owner.

“This entire episode is really really intense for her,” says Holland. “It definitely gets to the point where you don’t know up until the last few scenes of the episode how bad Slade’s going to treat her…When I was reading it, I had no idea, and I was really afraid for my character and I still slightly am.” READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' producer on how Suicide Squad episode came to be

The long-awaited Suicide Squad episode of Arrow is here!

In the episode, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) for a mission to retrieve a dangerous chemical agent that poses a huge threat to the country. The catch? He’s forced to work with the team of criminals that comic book fans know as the Suicide Squad. Among them: Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Shrapnel. And, of course, his ex-wife Lyla (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), who executive producer Marc Guggenheim said was the catalyst for the episode.

“We wanted to do a Lyla-Diggle story,” he said. “We sort of established this relationship at the end of last year, and Diggle and Lyla [got] back together in episode 6 of this year. And it started off with, ‘What would be something good to have them fight about?’ And someone pitched in the writer’s room: ‘What if Lyla was involved with the Suicide Squad and Diggle was not approving of it? That would be a nice conflict for them.’” And it is. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' star Manu Bennett talks Deathstroke: Oliver's 'about to meet his maker'

It was the handshake heard around the world.  And yes, I mean heard. Let’s just say Slade put a little bit of his Mirakuru-induced strength into his re-introduction to Oliver Queen during last week’s Arrow. But when we left the friends-turned-enemies, Slade had just uttered the words, “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Queen.” So what now?

Obviously, by making his way into the living room of Starling City’s own Moira Queen, it’s safe to say that Slade has worked his way up society’s ladder. “He hasn’t arrived with an army. He’s arrived by himself and he’s well aware of everything,” Manu Bennett, who plays Slade, said. “He’s taken that time to prepare himself to come to Starling City. The fact that he arrives in a Hugo Boss suit and is able to be put into the company of an elite person of the city like Moira Queen means that he’s taken the time since the island — however long that’s been for him — and executed his master plan to be able to slip on into Starling City as somebody wealthy and influential. He’s been devising this arrival in Starling City for some time. It’s a military operation for him, but he’s obviously managed to get money and resources and influence.” READ FULL STORY

'Arrow': Robert Knepper previews The Clock King; Plus, Colton Haynes teases a big blow-up, and Roy and Thea going to the dark side?

When we left Starling City, Sara was back and currently in the shirtless arms of ex-lover Oliver Queen. But with Roy still experiencing his rage issues, the Suicide Squad waiting in the wings, and the dark cloud that is the League of Assassins always hanging over everyone’s heads, what’s next for Team Arrow? What would you say to another villain?

Yep, this week will feature the introduction of The Clock King, played by Robert Knepper, who somehow hacks Felicity’s system and therefore becomes our favorite blonde’s first true nemesis. And as for the Roy rage? It could easily take Roy (and Thea!) down a very dark path. We caught up, separately, with Knepper and Haynes to preview what’s coming for their characters:

'Arrow' producers open up about THAT twist, tease Suicide Squad

Arrow producers promised that they’d put their own twist on Nyssa al Ghul, and boy, did they deliver. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the latest episode of Arrow!)

In the episode that aired Wednesday night, which saw Sarah (Caity Lotz) return to Starling City to check on spiraling Laurel (Katie Cassidy), not only did we get to see the first TV version of Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, but the show revealed that in their world, Sarah and Nyssa (Katrina Law) were in a romantic relationship. And as the producers revealed in a Q&A with reporters, it was a secret they worked very hard to protect.

'Arrow' producers preview Nyssa al Ghul's 'surprising' debut

Nyssa al Ghul is coming to Starling City in Wednesday night’s Arrow, and things are going to get complicated, to say the least.

The character — played by Spartacus alum Katrina Law — arrives in town to track down Sarah, who had returned from her self-imposed exile to check on her sister (Katie Cassidy). Or, as executive producer Andrew Kreisberg puts it, the League of Assassins had “sent their first round of minions to come for Sarah and that didn’t go too well for them, so they’re bringing out the big guns.”

“And the way Nyssa comes into the story is in a far more provocative and surprising way than the last round that came in [episode] 2.05,” he teases.

'Arrow': Stephen Amell teases huge scene with Laurel, talks Slade showdown; plus, is Oliver going to appear in 'Flash'?

Creatively, Arrow’s second season has soared like an arrow shot from Oliver Queen’s quiver. And if star Stephen Amell is to believed (he is) the last batch of episodes in the show’s second season are only going to get better.

'Arrow' boss teases Roy's 'Batman Begins'-like story arc; Plus, four more scoops

The back half of Arrow‘s second season is going to be a trying one for young Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).

After being injected with Mirakuru in the mid-season finale, the first episode back, airing Wednesday night, will explore the benefits — and consequences — of his newfound strength. “We’re going to learn starting with episode 10 that the Mirakuru may give you incredible strength and it really may accelerate your healing, but it comes with some very significant mental downsides as well,” teases executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “And Roy will be experiencing those in the present, and Slade in the past [via flashbacks] will begin to develop those difficulties.”

Guggenheim adds that as everything about Roy’s current predicament becomes clearer, we’re also going to see how it affects the people around him — Thea and Oliver included. “We always said that this year, Roy is going to go through a crucible. And the Mirakuru [storyline] is basically that ordeal and for sure when he comes out the other side — if he comes out the other side — he will be a different person and set on a different path,” he says. “You will start to see that as early as episode 12.”

It’s part of the longer story the writers are telling with Roy, explains Guggenheim, one that shows him going “from being sort of the street urchin we met in episode 15 last year to somebody who could potentially inherit the Arrow’s mantel as Roy Harper did in the comic books. We’re never really driven too much by what we call the comic book destinies of characters, but we’re very much aware of them and we’re very much aware that we’re telling a Batman Begins-style story for all of our characters. And obviously the Mirakuru and what Roy will experience in the wake of episode 9 is a big part of that Batman Begins-like story for him.”

Guggenheim also teased a few more plot points that await fans in the second half of the season. Here are answers to some more burning questions:

'Arrow' casts 'Prison Break' alum Robert Knepper as DC supervillain

It’s a big day for Robert Knepper.

On the heels of news that the Prison Break alum has been tapped for the next Hunger Games film, Warner Bros. has confirmed that Knepper is set to play William Tockman, better known as the Clock King, in an upcoming episode of CW’s Arrow.

Knepper, who is currently appearing on TNT’s Mob City, is only set to guest star in the 14th episode of the current season as the supervillain, who is known for his intelligence and precision. It is not out of the show’s nature, however, to bring back villains for repeat performances (see: Seth Gabel’s Vertigo and John Barrowman’s Malcolm Merlyn). TVLine first reported the casting.

Arrow‘s mid-season finale airs Wednesday night on the CW.
