Arrow fans were left hanging at the midway point of Season 3 last year, and come January 21, we'll finally get to see what happens next. Or rather, how certain people are dealing with the events of the mid-season finale. And that's as vague as I'm going to be, so consider yourself spoiler-warned about the first half of Arrow Season 3. If you're not caught up, read no further!
As for the information we have for you, it comes courtesy of CW's episode description for "Left Behind," which airs Wednesday, January 21, and will have Team Arrow dealing with the major lack of Arrow. As you likely will recall, Oliver faced off (shirtless) with Ra's al Ghul in an effort to protect Sara's actual killer, Thea, who has no idea she murdered someone. Oliver's battle with Ra's didn't last long, and ended with Ra's offering Oliver a sword through the chest and a shove over a cliff, with some al Ghul-style last rites included free of charge.
Is he dead or dying? Will he be brought back to life? CW's episode description for "Left Behind" doesn't say, but it does offer us quite a few interesting clues about what to expect, and we've broken them down.
Diggle and Roy are picking up the slack while Oliver is "away."
In the aftermath of Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) fight with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Arsenal (Colton Haynes) continue to protect the city in the Arrow’s absence.
It comes as no surprise to know that Team Arrow is continuing to fight the necessary fight while Oliver's away. Neither Roy nor Diggle is exactly the kind of guy to sit around waiting for orders, after all. But it should be very interesting to see how these two function in Oliver's absence. Will they get along and work together? Or will there be friction. This could be a good opportunity to see what kind of relationship Diggle and Arsenal have without Oliver to bind them.
