Arrow Exclusive: May Sweeps Poster Hints at Disaster to Come ...

at . Comments

With the hashtag #4justice and the tagline "This disaster has his family name written all over it," this May sweeps ad for the next two episodes of Arrow - given exclusively to TV Fanatic by The CW and Warner Brothers - shows that we're in for what could be, perhaps, an explosive end of the first season.

Arrow Exclusive Poster

From the sound of the tagline, things are obviously going to get more personal for our hero, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who just found out what we've known for awhile - that dear mother Moira (Susanna Thompson) is in cahoots with dastardly Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman).

It's worth noting that we're seeing Ollie here in regular clothes and not in the Arrow mask/outfit. Also in the ad are Laurel (who he admitted he still loved in this week's episode, "The Undertaking") and his right hand man, Diggle, who has his own vendetta to take care of.

And what should we make of what appears to be embers of fire floating in the air? Is something - or someone - going to go BOOM soon? We'll find out in the last two episodes of Arrow Season 1, May 8 and 15.

@Spindae Maybe that's what they wanted? It's a drama after all and not some fairytale.

Why use photo-shop on so beautiful people!??? Laurel looks so fake, so lifeless. Awful! ! !


To me Oliver and laurel have a sad look on there face. It seems like something's oing to explode I can't wait or these last few episodes.


You mean May 8, 15.


This is an odd poster. Why the suit and not his green garb? Why are Diggle and Laurel in the poster? Doesn't make any sense. It looks as if Laurel has been photoshopped, too. Very strange.


I think the tagline is in reference to the Queen's Gambit being blown up. Now that Walter had returned (He saw the Gambit in the Warehouse), there will be many questions for Moira and he may tell what he saw, Oliver will learn that his mother had knowledge that Merlyn had it blown up. After that big bomb, the family will be torn apart.

Arrow Season 1 Episode 23 Quotes

I take back every joke I made about you sticking a tracking device in your boot.


You can't beat me, Oliver. Yes, you're younger and you're faster, yet you always come up short against me. Wanna know why? Because you don't know, in your heart, what you're fighting for. What you're willing to sacrifice. And I do.
