‘Arrow’ season 7: Oliver and Felicity update, Birds of Prey episode coming

The CW’s Arrow resumed Season 7 last night and showrunner Beth Schwartz detailed some expectations for fans during in the Q&A with TV Line.

Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen will team up with police as the second half kicked off and Schwartz says “He will suit up with the police — but he will also wear a V-neck and blazer. [Laughs] He will do both.”

She vowed that the Green Arrow will face some villains and that the Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) relationship is doing well.

On Felicity, Schwartz added: “She definitely has a lot going on in the second half — specifically figuring out what she’s going to do now that Oliver’s back, and how she’s going to fit into his new role working for the SCPD, while also doing her own thing. She’s going to start getting back to creating tech and doing things to help the world.”

Expect a lot of secrets to unravel, Robert Queen (James Sheridan) among them.

“Well… we have him coming back, but not necessarily on-camera. There will be a fun surprise with him in 10.”

TV Line pressed the creator on the future: “This is the future as we know it, but we haven’t even scratched the surface of it yet. We’re going to be revealing what’s behind the wall at The Glades, and in 10 we’re going to see out first glimpse of how the other, better half are living. We’re actually going to have an all-future episode, [Episode] 16, which will answer all the questions, including the backstory of Blackstar (Shadowhunters‘ Katherine McNamara), how she came to be in this group…. There are more surprises ahead as we fill in the blanks about what has been going on. That episode is titled ‘Star City 2040.’”

A tease of episode 11 pointed to more about Laurel.

“We are going to find out more about Laurel’s backstory on Earth-Two, which is really cool. And Oliver is sort of going to be haunted by the consequences of him being outed. The episode looks at the consequences of him being unmasked and everyone knowing who he is.”

She also confirmed a Birds of Prey episode.

“Well, we are doing a Birds of Prey-inspired episode, that she will be involved with. And we’ll get to see what happens in her overall arc, in her redemption story — whether she is really redeemed as Black Siren and did she really turn over a new leaf, or is she still the same evil Black Siren that we saw last season.”
