In a recent interview with Katie Cassidy (Laurel) and David Ramsey (Diggle) new spoilers emerged on just what Laurel and Arrow’s team will be up to in the show’s second season! Check out what they had to say below.
The vigilante’s evolution into Green Arrow.. “The first season was about the vigilante and The Hood, and Tommy’s death is part of that process of him becoming the hero. We all have to mourn his death, but more importantly, await the hero,” Ramsey says.
Laurel’s tougher stance on justice.. “I still think, for Laurel, she has done some mourning and grieving, but it’s something that is always going to stay with her, Tommy’s death, just as much as her sister [and her death]. There’s a lot that’s happened to her, but I feel like she’s pretty good at dealing with it and moving forward and trying to always put her best foot forward, no matter what happens with her. I think you definitely see her take another step in her journey and her evolution. She becomes a little bit more involved in the criminal aspect of things,” Katie Cassidy teases. She further added that “I don’t know exactly how to answer that question without giving anything away,” she says. “She definitely continues the way she feels about justice, and making sure it is served.”
Time jump? “There is a time jump, and you find Diggle and Felicity, obviously, dealing with the Glades being disrupted, but also, Oliver has gone through some things, and Team Arrow has been affected by that. So we have to kind of reel him in a little bit,” Ramsey says.
What path do you think Laurel will take this season? And just how different will Team Arrow be when we see them next?
