The gang's (almost) all here! When Arrow returns for its second season, it's with an episode that brings all of our favorites from season one front and center-- and almost everyone is represented in the season premiere photos You've already seen Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) face some early danger, so why don't we lighten things up by featuring the young love that is blossoming in Roy (Colton Haynes) and Thea (Willa Holland)?
While in the second season premiere, "City of Heroes," Diggle and Felicity travel to Lian Yu in search of Oliver (Stephen Amell), Thea refuses to visit her mother in jail, instead focusing more time on her new boyfriend Roy, who is trying to fill a void left by the Arrow's absence. Will he focus his attention to her, as well, or will he start to do some digging of his own? He certainly seems to be getting a bit chummier with former Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne) than you might expect...
Also, flashbacks to the island show Slade (Manu Bennett), Shado (guest star Celina Jade), and Oliver in a desperate situation.
Arrow returns to The CW on October 9 2013 at 8 p.m.
