Arrow Debuts Extended Trailer, Promotes Emily Bett Rickards

by  in Comic News, TV News Comment

The CW has released an extended midseason trailer for Arrow that teases what be can expect more from the next nine episodes — namely, more island-backstory intrigue, a schism between Laurel Lance and her detective father, a red hoodie-wearing Roy Harper, and The Hood’s big confrontation with Moira Queen.

And following the drama’s second-season renewal earlier this week, ETonline reports Emily Bett Rickards has been promoted to a series regular as Felicity Smoak, the Queen Consolidated information-technology employee whose field of expertise apparently knows no limits. Following the events of tonight’s episode, “The Odyssey,” we can probably expect Felicity to move from Oliver’s suspicious admirer/mostly unwitting accomplice to full-blown ally of The Hood.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
