During a press tour on set of Arrow with the cast and crew, Arrow's executive producer Andrew Kreisberg hinted at how dark things are for Oliver Queen in the second season, premiering on October 9 at 8/7c on The CW.
Kreisberg gives more informations about Summer Glau and her character Isabel Rochev, her relationship with Oliver...and hinted a possible romance. Find below an excerpt from an article released at Greenarrowtv:
That “movie version of the show” will be bringing in a longtime fan favorite as a guest for the season premiere. Summer Glau — who fans know best from Serenity and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles — is coming on as Isabel Rochev.
“What’s really funny about Summer – and she even said this to me — she’s like ‘I’ve never played anybody like this before. When do I get to punch somebody?’ What’s interesting about Summer’s character is that even though Isabel Rochev is a character from the comic books, she’s actually a nemesis of Oliver Queen’s far more than she’s a nemesis of The Arrow’s. One of the story arcs this season is that the company that Summer represents is trying to take over Queen Consolidated, because Queen Consolidated took a massive PR hit, considering that they were the company that built the machine that killed 503 people. So Oliver really has to step in and become The CEO. With Summer there’s a lot of banter, and jousting, and sparks flying, and anger, and yelling… it’s sort of a fun, different dynamic than we’ve ever had on the show,” he says.
Will those sparks mean romance? “‘Sparks fly’ doesn’t mean that people are gonna get together,” he teases.
