‘Arrow’ Season 2: “When the Hood Goes Up You Better Pray” September 5, 2013 Arrow, News Oliver lost the battle last season, but he has no intentions of losing the war. In the new and, as usual, epic Arrow season two promo, our beleaguered hero and his friends are seen bouncing back from the devastation of the season finale to return to their goal of keeping Starling City safe. Oliver in particular is more intense than ever. When he’s told he has changed, he growls, “Trying another way.” Just how dangerous will his alter ego become? Check out the promo below and let us know how you’re coping with the month long wait for season two in the comments. Arrow season two premieres Wednesday, October 9th at 8/7c on The CW.
