Arrow’s midseason finale ended with the revelation that the new Green Arrow was none other than Emiko Queen. But while we may know this, Ollie and the rest of Team Arrow still don’t. However, it looks like that may be about to change judging by the photos released from the show’s return episode, “Shattered Lives.” Emiko (Sea Shimooka) can be seen interacting with Rene and Curtis. How long before she joins Team Arrow? You know it’s got to happen eventually, right? It also looks like Dragon is still in prison, who unlike Barry Allen and Supergirl’s Colonel Haley actually belongs in captivity (click here and here if you don’t know what I’m talking about—prison cells seem to be a thing in the Arrowverse all of a sudden). As for Ollie, well, he’s seen here looking forlorn with Felicity, but give the guy a break. He just got out of an intense stint in prison himself, followed by a body-swapping romp through the Multiverse with Barry that maaaay have resulted in him making some sort of Faustian bargain with the Monitor. The guy’s allowed to brood a bit!
Arrow returns on Monday, January 21 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST) on The CW.
