Arrow Season 2 Deleted Scene: Seduction Game
|Date: 20 Sep 2014 ||
The Arrow season 2 Blu-Ray includes a deleted scene from episode 4 'Crucible' featuring Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev and Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, in which Isabel and Oliver have a passionate discussion about the leadership of Queen Consolidated. Summer Glau is looking more stunning than ever and the relationship between Oliver and Isabel is more ambiguous than ever.
Enjoy Isabel and Oliver's twisted game of seduction in the exclusive video below.
Screen captures from this deleted scene, also taken from the Blu-ray, are up in the photo gallery; here's a sample and follow the link for the rest.

This scene is perfectly in line with what Arrow producers said about Summer Glau's character Isabel Rochev: "Part of the reason Isabel disappeared for a while is because we still weren't quite sure which way to go, whether she should be an ally or a villain. We had written it so that it could turn out either way."
Still, too bad they deleted it, don't you think?
Don't miss the Arrow Season 2 Gag Reel in which Summer Glau has a Cinderella moment.

That's awesome thanks!
It's great to see Summer in this light with Oliver. Too bad it didn't made the actual series. I think it's a good deal of loss to the show.
Not bcs it's Summer Glau, but bcs the scene is really good imo and would've added a significant part, evenmore hence Isabel wasn't that much around the show as frequent as some of the other characters. In these (and usually in Summer's) case - less is more, or more like a rare speaks, but when it does everyone listens kinda type.
Btw it's Queen, not Quen. ;P

At Matt and Metal:
Summer is good as usual but Stephen Amell is not that good at delivering his lines, it looks like he is simply reciting sometimes.
And while the scene is all in all pleasant to watch, it's the same all game between Isabel and Oliver over and over. There's no character development and the plot isn't moving forward either. This is precisely why Arrow fans didn't like the Rochev character.
Side note: fixed mispelling, thanks!

They could have done SO much with Summer as Isabel Rochev. There was the potential to make Summer either a good girl or bad girl (I prefer the bad girl type for her) I wish they used more material from the comics towards her story arc. Summer would've been the perfect that, instead of the few minutes we got to see her on the screen. But it just proves that I'm not a fan of Arrow, but I watched the show to support her. I just have a different opinion about bringing big time heroes to the small screen. It works for some shows and they can last years like Smallville did or unfortunately suffer the tragic end like the Cape did. It's just about the conditions and networks (basically right time, right place).
