As we are less than a week away from the highly anticipated season premiere of CW’s Arrow, the network released a full episode gallery for the second episode that will air on October 14 titled “The Candidate”.
This is where we will be meeting Jeri Ryan who will play Jessica Danforth, an old friend of the Queen family who is now running for mayor in Star City. But if we have learned anything from Arrow when it comes to mayor elections and its candidates, is that you are never safe as she will have Speedy and the Green Arrow as her personal guardian angels, if you will. Also, how great is it to see Thea and Oliver finally fighting crime together as Speedy and Green Arrow?
While not featured in the images, this will be the episode that introduces Echo Kallum as Curtis Holt a.k.a. Mr. Terrific from the world of DC as Felicity’s new friend at the company. While I’m looking forward to see their dynamic, I would love some early hints towards his role as Mr. Terrific, if he does become his comic counterpart, which he probably will. Only a few days left now Arrow fans; it’s going to be an exciting season for sure!
Arrow Season 4 Premieres on Wednesday, October 7, 8/7c on The CW.
