ARROW Season 3 News: Will the Premiere be a Flashback Episode?

ARROW-745x1024We admit it; we haven’t been keeping up-to-date with ARROW news over the summer. Realistically, we were aiming to do a recap of all the ARROW Season 3 stuff in a ‘Spoiler Chat’ come September. But, as today marks the day the crew begin shooting Season 3 – it seems right to talk about all the recent announcements regarding the new season of ARROW, as well as a few things related to the spin-off show, The Flash.

Perhaps the biggest question stemming from all of this though is: will the premiere of ARROW’s Season 3 be a flashback-focused episode? We’ll break down the possibilities.

We got treated to an official release date, and 3 new characters (the last one is mind-blowing).
