The CW Network has released a new trailer for Season 3 of Arrow, which teases the budding romance between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). In Season 2, Oliver professed his love for Felicity, but he later admitted it was all a ruse to trick Slade (Manu Bennett). However, Season 3 will show Oliver and Felicity starting a romantic relationship for real. Take a look at the latest footage, then read on to see what executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had to say about the "Olicity" romance.
When asked if Oliver and Felicity's new romantic relationship is just another ploy to fool the fans, Andrew Kreisberg revealed that it's not a "fake-out."
"It's not a fake-out. Felicity and Oliver actually have a pretty raw discussion about what they mean to each other, which we're really excited about, and it's an extension of what happened at the end of last year."
In the aftermath of this victory, Season 3 opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen - not as long as the city needs The Arrow.
