Let’s be honest, cryptic teases are the best kinds of leaks. When someone just goes out and spoils everything for everyone it ruins any sort of expectation and kind of destroys the point of watching a show. But cryptic responses make things more exciting, because they usually ask more questions than they answer and the rampant speculation that fans and other interested parties engage in can be very interesting to read. If anything, you want to watch the show even more, to see if you were right or not.
Well, during a Twitter Q&A session, someone asked Stephen Amell, the star the superhero series ‘Arrow,’ how he would describe the first episode of the fourth season in just three words. His answer:
What’s wrong Speedy? https://t.co/vsxmZLRRMG

This raises so many questions. First off, what is wrong with Thea Queen? Will these problems force Oliver to come back to Starling City? (This seems likely, otherwise they’d have to change the name of the series, wouldn’t they?) From the ending of the third season, it seems very likely that Thea, as Speedy, will take over protecting the city in Oliver’s absence, but what sort of toll will this have on her? Are some of the villains going to be just too much for her to handle alone?
This tease comes on the heels of Marc Guggenheim, executive producer and writer for ‘Arrow,’ posting a picture to Twitter of the title page of the script for the fourth season’s first episode:
It reveals who’s on the creative team for the episode, and also when it will be filming. And is it just me, or did he use that pen to deliberately hide the title of the episode? Can’t give away too much, I suppose.
What do you think? Do you have any theories, crazy or otherwise, about what’s going to be happening in the new season of Arrow? Let us know in the comments below. We’re always up for some good old-fashioned speculation.
