The CW’s modest superhero hit Arrow has been slowly peeling the layers back via flashbacks to Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) time on the island. In the latest trailer for the rest of season one, we finally get to see the future vigilante learn how to kick some ass. Spoilers ahead!

All the time we’ve spent in Starling City has been entertaining, but the flashbacks to the shipwrecked era arguably make for some of the most compelling scenes. It’s interesting to see the kick-ass vigilante contrasted with the scared punk kid on the island. But a trailer for the final few episodes of season one shows how Oliver Queen actually made the transition from spoiled brat to man of action.

We finally get to see that training regimen ramp up, and it looks like Oliver will be a pretty quick study.

Check out the trailer below: 


New episodes continue this Wednesday, and TV Line has obtained a new pic showing a certain someone in the Arrow-cave. Yep, that’s Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) tending to an injured (and unhooded) Arrow, meaning she’ll soon be brought into the fold.

But it is a good twist that makes logistical sense, as her hacking skills should definitely come in handy. The crime-fighting gang just keeps getting bigger and bigger.


Luckily for all of us, the intrigue will continue for another season, as The CW has ordered a second year of Arrow for next fall.
