Stephen Amell Teases The Possible Reason For Oliver’s Return In “Arrow” Season 4

Stephen Amell Teases The Possible Reason For Oliver's Return In "Arrow" Season 4
Stephen Amell took to Twitter on Thursday and teased the possible reason for Oliver's return to Starling City in "Arrow" season 4!

At the end of Arrow season 3, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) decided to turn in his hood and his bow and arrow in favour of a new, less violent path with the love of his life, Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). As the finale episode drew to a close, the two lovebirds were seen driving off into the sunset together with Oliver telling Felicity that he was finally happy.

Well, the show is called Arrow, which means that the presence of the Arrow himself is likely a given for season 4. But, what exactly will prompt Oliver to return to Starling City and, I’m assuming, once again take on his vigilante secret identity?

During a Thursday morning Twitter Q&A, Amell was asked by one fan to summarize the season 4 premiere episode in three words, to which he responded:

In the latter part of season 3, Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Oliver’s younger sister, assumed her own vigilante identity, taking on the name Speedy – a nickname her brother had given her long ago.

Assuming something’s wrong with Thea, it wouldn’t surprise anyone that Oliver would drop everything to rush home and help her. But, one question still remains: What exactly is going to happen to Thea?

Arrow season 4 will premiere this fall on The CW!
