#Arrow Spilled Secrets: Scoop on Laurel, Isabel and Thea

arrow_secretsrevealedIt’s been nearly two weeks since Arrow aired episode 2×18 “Deathstroke,” where several bombshells were dropped. And now we’re getting some teases about how these will play out in tomorrow’s all-new episode, thanks to TV Line.

1. How will Laurel react to learning Oliver is the Arrow?

First and foremost: After (briefly) kidnapping Thea and before slinking back into the shadows of Starling City, Slade Wilson made a very special delivery to Laurel’s doorstep: the truth about her billionaire ex-beau’s alter ego, The Arrow.

What will Laurel do with this jaw-dropping intel? As executive producer Andrew Kreisberg previously teased for TVLine, viewers stand to be “very surprised” by the beleaguered ADA’s reaction. Now elaborating on that, he notes, “Laurel’s been through a lot of ups and downs, and a lot of what these last five episodes are about is her becoming a whole person by really healing from everything that happened not only in the past two seasons, but also in the backstory, before Oliver left.

“Fans of Laurel are going to be really excited by her trajectory in these last episodes,” Kreisberg promises.

2. Why is Thea directing her anger at Oliver over learning the truth about her paternity?

Prior to looping in Laurel on Oliver’s crimefighting mission, Slade also dropped some knowledge on the aforementioned Thea — that Malcolm Merlyn is her biological father. Once freed from the Aussie’s clutches, Thea promptly confronted her mother and brother about the well-kept paternity secret, yet directed most of her anger at Oliver. Why target him, if Moira’s the one who concealed the truth for so long?

“Thea expects Moira to be a liar at this point,” Kreisberg explains. “And she even said [to Oliver in Episode] 17, ‘You’re the one person who never lies to me, so for him to be keeping this secret hurt her more than anything else.

“Thea looked up to Oliver and felt like she could always count on him,” the EP continues, “so it’s kind of a sad thing because that’s how Oliver always felt about his mother — and then he discovered The Undertaking. Everyone is experiencing the same family dynamic that none of them can quite snap out of.”

3. Who is Isabel Rochev really?

The third and final eye-opener that Arrow let loose with in the “Deathstroke” episode concerns Oliver’s business partner Isabel Rochev (played by Summer Glau), who as part of Slade’s grand plan orchestrated a takeover of Queen Consolidated, busted out some martial arts on Oliver and made a conspicuous reference to “the sins of the father.”

Is the TV show tapping into DC Comics lore by making Isabel an ex-mistress of sorts of Robert Queen’s? Or could she be Slade Wilson’s offspring, Rose Wilson? (Those who condone long-lens paparazzi photography may have spied a clue as to the direction Arrow is pointed; if you don’t, please allow yourself the surprise.) “There are always two ways to go,” Kreisberg hedges. “But you will get a lot more about her backstory and her motivations in the next episode.”

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8/7c.

HOT TRAILER: Official ‘Gone Girl’ Teaser Trailer

Let me state for the record, I did not know that Ben Affleck could channel so much inner rage. Just where is he pulling it from?! However, I did think the casting of this film was quite brilliant though. Ben, Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris… these persons are amazing on screen when given the right script.

And boy were they lucky with the director too. This material prime A content under David Fincher’s deftly strange but ever so brilliant handling. Also, Gillian Flynn stands by her new ending, saying fans of the old ending as well as haters of the old ending will be delighted with the changes.

Seriously though, holy freaking freak-outs, this trailer shows how messed up these characters are in all the right ways!

Gone Girl appears on movie screens October 3rd, 2014.
