We’re just a few days away from the season three premiere of “Arrow,” and The CW (via THR) has released the first full clip! Check it out in the player below! Titled “The Calm,” the episode is officially described as follows:
“With crime in Starling City at an all-time low thanks to the Arrow and his team, Oliver thinks he can finally balance being both the Arrow and Oliver Queen and asks Felicity out on a date. However, when a new villain (guest star Peter Stormare) emerges, who has claimed the name Vertigo from the recently deceased Count, Oliver is caught off-guard and someone close to him is hurt. Oliver and a newly suited up Roy take on the Count. Meanwhile, Diggle becomes a father, Lance is promoted to Captain, Laurel joins Arrow?s inner circle and Felicity gets a part-time job at a tech store to make ends meet. Also, Oliver fights to regain his company, Queen Consolidated, but comes up against a very worthy opponent ? the charming Ray Palmer.”
Directed by Glen Winter with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Jake Coburn, “The Calm” will air October 8. “Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 on The CW.
