‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its fifth installment of the year with "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak,” as the arrival of her mother and a virus threatening the city hearken back to Felicity's past as an MIT graduate hacker, while Laurel continues her training with boxer Ted "Wildcat" Grant (J.R. Ramirez), and Oliver clashes with Thea over Malcolm Merlyn.

‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its fourth installment of the year with "The Magician,” as Oliver learns of Malcolm Merlyn's survival from Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law), threatening to break his "no killing" rule in the process, as well as bringing him into conflict with the deadly Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable).
Back when 'Angel' first premiered on The WB, it would more than occasionally feature episodes with characters from the mothership show 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer.' Buffy, Oz, Willow, and others would pop by for both ratings as well as some sweet inter-show continuity. And when you have the entire DC Universe to play with, it makes sense for The CW to bring the worlds of 'Arrow' and 'The Flash' together from time to time. Sure, these are two different worlds, but one that shares the same sky, and luckily for us, the same Felicity Smoak.
Only four episodes in, and 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' is already bringing in the big guns for its first crossover, and by big guns, we of course mean the badass Ms. Felicity Smoak. The Arrow's best gal will take a trip to Central City next week for "Going Rogue," encountering the chilly Captain Cold in the process, and we've got the first photos!
Last night's 'Arrow' installment "Corto Maltese" took us out of Starling City for the next layer of mystery to season 3, but next week's "The Magician" will see a whole knew threat rising as Matt Nable first appears in the role of legendary DC baddie Ra's al Ghul! See what the immortal (ish) Batman villain looks like in our first footage from next week's 'Arrow' installment!
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its third installment of the year with "Corto Maltese,” as Oliver travels to the titular country in search of Thea, Felicity settles into her her new job, and Laurel trades blows with boxer Ted "Wildcat" Grant (J.R. Ramirez).
Practice makes perfect. That holds true for superheroes as well as television shows about superheroes. So it makes sense that 'The Flash' is essentially repeating the same steps week after week in order to get the basics down pat before getting into more adventurous stuff down the road. “Things You Can’t Outrun” is by no means a bad episode, but it doesn’t provide a lot in terms of new elements.
'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' has speedily become one of the better-received series of the year, let alone its success for the CW, making the latest update seem somewhat slow by comparison. The DC sci-fi drama has officially been given a full season order for its back 9 episodes, along with fellow CW success 'Jane the Virgin.'
'Arrow' season 3 has played host to a wealth of DC comics additions in only its first few weeks, with plenty more on the way, so why not keep adding to the list? Fresh off supervillainous turns in 'The Cape' and 'X-Men' universes, Vinnie Jones will take up his next comic baddie role in 'Arrow' season 3 as DC villain "Brick."
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its second installment of the year with season premiere followup “Sara,” as the team grapples with Sara's death, and Roy is forced to reveal Thea's whereabouts, while in flashback Oliver acclimates to his new Hong Kong surroundings, and has a chance encounter with Tommy (Colin Donnell).
