Look for Oliver to search for his sister in Corto Maltese after Felicity tracks her location there. But getting Thea to come home won’t be so easy.

See what we mean in the following trailer:

Viewers were treated to the return of an old friend on Arrow Season 3 Episode 2, as Oliver and company bid farewell to another one.

Laurel was out for blood in the wake of her sister’s murder, desperate for answers about who was behind the shooting.

When a lead landed her at the hospital bedside of someone else apparently targeted by Sara’s killer, Laurel crossed a line or two dozen in order to learn more from the patient.

Oliver and Diggle also worked to discover the truth, with the latter using Lyla’s connections to tap into an A.R.G.U.S. database.

Asked by Felicity how he can come across as so “cold and rational” in a time like this, Oliver said he doesn’t have the luxury of grieving when folks are looking to him to lead.

The hearts of viewers around the country may have been breaking following the shocking death that concluded Arrow Season 3 Episode 1, but the fists up CW executives are simply pumping today.

That's because Arrow returned last night to 2.8 million viewers and a 1.0 rating among 18-49-year olds, with those figures representing an 18 percent and 11 percent rise, respectively, from its Season 2 finale in May.

Elsewhere on The CW, a rerun of The Flash Season 1 Episode 1 impressively drew in over two million viewers as well.

ON CBS, meanwhile, Survivor remained mostly steady with last week’s numbers, while Criminal Minds garnered 10.5 million viewers and Stalker 8.1 million, both falling 15 percent in the demo from their premieres.

Arrow broke our hearts and shocked our senses on Arrow Season 2 Episode 1.

It got our hopes up for an Oliver and Felicity date... only to them send them crashing down to earth when Ollie realized he can't ever live a normal life.

It introduced us to Brandon Routh as Roy Palmer, a shady businessman who wants to take over Queen Consolidated.

And, of course, the premiere killed off Sara Lance. She was struck in the heart by arrows from an unknown assailant and subsequently plummeted off a building to her death.

How will this CW hit follow-up such a gut-wrenching premiere? Via Arrow Season 3 Episode 2, an installment aptly titled "Sara." Get an early look at the action here:

Fans fan expect Colin Donnel to return (via flashback) next Wednesday night, while Matt Ward guest stars as an archer named Simon Lacroix. He goes by the code name Komodo.

That name should be a familiar one to comic book fans.

Oh, Arrow. How many times can you mess with our heart?

On Arrow Season 3 Episode 1, Oliver was actually happy. For a little while at least.

This is partly because his team totally has this crime-fighting down to a science, as evidenced by the high-paced opening action scene: Felicity is aptly monitoring communications... Diggle is in charge of securing a shipment of black market weapons... and Oliver and Roy Arsenel are all over the bad guys.

Who said being a superhero had to be tough?

But when we see a new drug dealer take over a crime group and become Starling City’s new Count Vertigo. His first act is to kill Oliver Queen.

We also later meet Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, who bond with Felicity at her electronic retail store over his desire to purchase a satellite frequency communicator.

Ladies and gentlemen... we have an Olicity Alert!

The CW has released a new teaser for Arrow Season 3 - and while shots of Thea training under the tutelage of her father, along with Laurel being all bad ass and Peter Stormare appearing as Count Vertigo are intriguing... there's only one scene that matters in this promo.

It's of Oliver and Felicity kissing. EEEK!

Or at least starting to kiss. We do fear that the smooch so many fans have been clamoring for may be interrupted at the last second, but let's pretend otherwise for now and let's allow our fantasies to run wild:

Arrow Season 3 premieres Wednesday, October 8 at 8/7c on The CW.

Need to catch up before then? You can always watch Arrow online via TV Fanatic. Enjoy!
