When ‘Arrow’ returns for the midseason premiered titled “Shattered Lives” we know that he’ll also be returning to his regular life in Star City. Well, as regular as life can be for a man now known to spend his nights being a vigilante. Still, he’ll be working with law enforcement while getting the band back together and this new trailer puts a spotlight on various aspects of his life as well as his half-sister Emiko Queen.

Oliver (Stephen Amell) is ready to get back to work with the SCPD and to focus on his marriage with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). However, when Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) tasks Oliver with tracking the new Green Arrow (Sea Shimooka) things take a surprising turn. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) must answer to ARGUS about Diaz (Kirk Acevedo).

As we’ve seen time and time again, it never helps when the populace knows a superhero’s real identity, and it is only a matter of time before that comes back to haunt Oliver on the series. I’m somewhat glad that it won’t be the first story arc that they use and hope it doesn’t have the writers fridging Felicity down the line. Still, his true identity being public knowledge isn’t something which will likely be kept at bay for long.
