'Arrow' season 7: 'Level Two' reveals Felicity's death and hints that William might be the new Green Arrow
According to recent speculations, it is believed that adult William Clayton will travel back in time to take up his father's identity as Green Arrow.
'Arrow's' new episode titled 'Level Two' premiered on November 5, and we saw a new Green Arrow tiptoeing around, saving people from a fire.
Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) is holding a meeting with the residents of Star City, who are displeased with the way the police are handling crime, as opposed to when vigilantes were fighting crime in the city.
While the meeting is on, somebody sets fire to the back of the building and Rene (Rick Gonzalez) realizes his daughter, Zoe (Eliza Faria), is trapped in the building. When he tries to rescue Zoe, there comes the new Green Arrow, who saves the girl.
The new Green Arrow made his debut in the premiere episode of season seven of 'Arrow'. It was believed that John Diggle (David Ramsey), Oliver Queen's handpicked successor, could be the new Green Arrow.
However, his recent storyline suggests otherwise and looks like he was telling the truth of not being the Green Arrow.
Now, according to recent speculations, it is believed that the adult William Clayton (Ben Lewis), Oliver's son, will travel back in time to take up his father's identity as Green Arrow and save Star City.
This episode did not provide any clue to directly support this theory, but if we look at how the timelines of the present and future are shown, this theory might just turn out to be true.
In 'Level Two,' we saw William and Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) return to Star City in the future, and the level of destruction they witness is unimaginable.
They are intercepted by a police patrol in the city but are saved by Dinah, who is a vigilante in the future despite being against vigilantism in the present.
What changed for her to be on the other side of the law though?
We are introduced to a new vigilante in the future, an adult Zoe (Andrea Sixtos), who tells that Rene is not to be found in the future. Looks like almost every off-spring of those in the present is turning out to be a vigilante in future.
Meanwhile, Oliver is subjected to a different level of trauma in the "therapy" session in Slabslide Maximum Security prison, where he has just been transferred to Level 2.
He is hooked to machines while Jay Parker (Jason E. Kelley), the psychiatrist asks him about his father and his son.
Oliver is forced to visit his suppressed past memories when his father killed himself and left him to "right his wrongs". The psychiatrist asks Oliver to let go of what his father asked him to do, as he was a criminal, and set his son William free from his father and grandfather's crimes.
It will be ironical if William is actually the new Green Arrow who traveled through time to save Star City.
William who is with Roy in Star City at a specific location solving puzzles which only he could as Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) trained him to, finds out that she is dead.
The expression of Dinah while delivering this information suggests that this is a recent happening. Now that we know Felicity is dead, who sent William to her office? If time travel is possible, will circumstances lead Roy to train William to be the new Green Arrow and send him back to fill his father's shoes? Too many questions and blank spots in the timeline that needs to be filled as we go along.
In the next episode 'The Demon', Felicity will learn something alarming about Oliver as mentioned in the official synopsis, whereas Dinah "works with an unlikely ally", which could be the new Green Arrow as she worked with him and Rene in 'Level Two'.
We know that the term demon in the title is indicated towards an inmate in the prison.
Oliver who forced himself in level two of prison in search of that demon doesn't look in good shape to find him, or could it be just an act to distract the police and the psychiatrist?
You can find the official synopsis, reported by ComicBook, below:
"Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) learns something new about Oliver (Stephen Amell) that shocks her. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) asks Curtis (Echo Kellum) to go undercover for ARGUS. Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) works with an unlikely ally. Mark Bunting directed the episode written by Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes."
The next episode of 'Arrow' titled 'The Demon' is set to air on November 12 on the CW.
