Arrow’s Season 6 premiere episode titled ‘Fallout’, has its own official trailer. Though it delves very little into the outcome of Prometheus’s island-wide suicide bomb attack on Lian Yu and Team Arrow itself.
The trailer is big on action and small on plot details. Thanks to previously dropped promotional photos, we already know that Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) and Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy) survive the blast along with Oliver and his son, William.
But according to show producer Marc Guggenheim, there’s always more than meets the eye going on in the show. “People either live or they’ll die,” Guggenheim teased. “There are other consequences that can come out of what happened at the end of [the episode]. While everyone is focused on one thing, you know us on Arrow – we may be doing something else.”
Ain’t that the truth. For now, Oliver and Slade appear to be on friendly terms to the point where they actually engage in a handshake. But we know that won’t last.
Slade himself even alludes to their newfound truce crumbling when we hear him warn Oliver, “We walk in two worlds. That can only last for so long.” Who’s ready for round two? Somebody ring the bell!
In the trailer, we also see only the dress shoes of a mysterious character disembarking from a helicopter. Person of Interest‘s actor Michael Emerson has been cast in the series, but his character has yet to be named or officially revealed. Perhaps this is the person we are seeing in the footage.

Arrow returns on its new night Thursday, October 12 at 9pm ET on The CW.
