The first season of “Arrow” ended on kind of a down note. Half of the Glades was destroyed, Tommy got crushed by a building and Oliver only beat the bad guy when he killed his best friend’s dad.

That will definitely have an effect on Season 2 of the superhero series — but it might be a positive effect. After all, even if Oliver (Stephen Amell) and company did lose that last battle, there’s still a war to win. This video assures us that the good guys will indeed win when it comes to the war.

After some dramatic voiceovers and somber portraits to illustrate all that was lost, the “Arrow” video gets into some of the good stuff. That would be footage from the upcoming Season 2.

  • There are copycat Hoods running around Starling City after the tragedy in the Glades. This is probably not a good thing.
  • It looks like Laurel (Katie Cassidy) might get to do a little more fighting this season.
  • The Island story is not over. There’s fighting and kissing between Oliver and his fellow castaways.
  • China White (Kelly Hu) is back. She thinks Oliver has changed. He has, of course. “Trying another way …” is how the hero puts it.

“Arrow” Season 2 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
