The preview video also sees Laurel roughing up a man and hints at Thea's transformation under her father's guidance.
A new promo for "Arrow" season 3 has landed online, offering a glimpse at the budding romance between Oliver and Felicity which was first teased at San Diego Comic-Con last July. In the snippet, Oliver is seen grabbing her neck and they kiss.
The love life aside, Oliver hints that there are more secrets about him that are yet to be revealed. Donning his green hood, he is featured in action and telling someone unseen, "You have failed this city."
The video also shows how the other characters, particularly Laurel and Thea, have changed since the last season. Laurel is seen beating up a man and Thea has seemingly learnt some fighting skills.
"Arrow" returns Wednesday, October 8 at 8 P.M. on The CW. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim told The Hollywood Reporter about this season's theme, "It's the first season where this theme of identity is not only about Oliver but is also about all the other characters."
As for Oliver and Felicity's relationship, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told EW, "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."
