Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases that the main characters in Season 3 are grappling with identity issues in a new featurette for the season premiere "The Calm", airing Wednesday, October 8 at 8 PM ET on The CW.

The executive producer reveals that Starling City's crime rate has dropped significantly, while Oliver (Stephen Amell) ponders if he is a killer or not, and if he can have a personal relationship with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). Take a look at the latest footage which offers much more insight into Season 3.

Determined to right the wrongs of Starling City and sworn to bring justice to those who have failed it, Oliver Queen (aka The Arrow) - with the help of his iron-fisted right hand, John Diggle, the tech-savvy Felicity Smoak and the newest member of the team, Roy Harper - narrowly defeats the vengeful Slade Wilson, his onetime ally and mentor on the island of Lian Yu. But like all wars, there are casualties. Sacrificing herself for her children, Moira Queen falls at the hand of Deathstroke, sending Oliver's sister, Thea, into self-imposed exile with her biological father, Malcolm Merlyn. In Season Three, Oliver faces an even greater threat, when another lethal face emerges from his dark and tortured past - Ra's Al Ghul!
