The CW has released a new preview for "Due Process", the sixth episode of Arrow's seventh season.
The details for the episode hint at some new problems for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who has been stuck inside Slabside prison since the Season 7 premiere. As fans have seen over recent weeks, Oliver is starting to get emotionally broken during his time in Slabside, so it will be interesting to see where things go next.
"After the premiere, we really isolate Oliver," Amell told ComicBook.com at the beginning of the season. "He goes a long time without interacting with really any familiar face. I have enjoyed the couple of visitors that I've had. I actually had one recently with a character that I haven't had a sit-down scene with in some time, and it was really fun to work with them again."
What we know about the episode also hints at Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) playing a major role in Oliver's fight in prison, although there's no telling exactly what that will entail. As fans have seen so far this season, Laurel has slipped into her Earth-1 counterpart's job as District Attorney pretty well, something that has seemed to help nudge her towards the path of redemption.
"I think she's a really interesting character." Cassidy explained to ComicBook.com earlier this year. "What I love about her too is that you never know what you're going to get with her. She's sort of a loose cannon. I also look at her kind of as like her own island, in a way. If you think about it, you've got the team, you've got Diaz, who [Laurel] is maybe not best friends with now, and then you have me. And so it's sort of like 'Where do I stand?'"
"Yeah, absolutely." Cassidy revealed. "I think there's room for redemption for her character. And I think, what I believe is that if they do reveal more of her backstory, and sort of tell her story actually, there'll be a lot more of an understanding of why she acts the way that she does."
