Abs- olutely Amell

Ar­row star Stephen Amell on Oliver’s new at­ti­tude...

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Arrow -

What kinds of changes will we see in Oliver this year? We find a happy Oliver in the premiere! But all of that comes at a price. And his at­tempt to in­still some nor­malcy in his life doesn’t go well. In our premiere episode, Oliver lit­er­ally sees a vi­sion of him­self that scares the shit out of him, that colours the en­tire sea­son... It will make more sense in Oc­to­ber. I prom­ise! [ Laughs.]

What can you say about the re­la­tion­ships be­tween Oliver and the peo­ple he cares about? Oliver and Thea’s re­la­tion­ship is cer­tainly gonna be dif­fer­ent, and I’m ex­cited for that. We find a changed dy­namic with Oliver and Roy. They’re in a good spot. We find Oliver and Dig­gle in a spot of con­flict be­cause of how much Oliver cares about Dig­gle. We find Oliver and Lau­rel in an in­cred­i­bly good place. There’s a great line in the premiere where she goes, “You catch ’ em, I cook ’ em.” It’s a re­ally cool dy­namic that they have. Oliver and Lance, ev­ery­one’s in a good spot... Then we in­tro­duce a whole new set of prob­lems. [ Laughs.]

Can you say what’s in store for Oliver and Felic­ity? The only way I can elab­o­rate is to say that Oliver has one woman in his life this year, this sea­son, and that woman is Felic­ity. That doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean they are to­gether. But all of the “Was he mis­lead­ing her? Was it mis­di­rec­tion? Was it a ploy?” – all of that stuff we were left with in the fi­nale – we re­solve in the premiere. Fully, ab­so­lutely. You get a clear pic­ture of how they both feel about one another. That doesn’t mean they’re go­ing to be to­gether though.
