The CW has released a few more promo images from last nights episode of Arrow. Its a little bit too late. But better late than never. The new set of images also contain some with Summer. Check them out below.
Another exciting episode of Arrow, that continued the quest for revenge of “team deathstroke”, just ended. We got great scenes with Summer that finally revealed more about Isabel Rochev’s background and connection to the Queen family. As always, we don’t want to spoiler the episode for you, but it went out with a bang and Summer’s performance as villain nailed it. She is really good playing bad. What did you think about tonights episode? Anyway, check out some of the caps from tonights episode below and head over to the gallery for more.
If you haven’t seen tonights episode you might want to skip this post because it contains major spoilers for the upcoming episodes of Arrow. (sort of)
If you have seen tonights episode of Arrow you might wonder if we see Summer again, because it ended tragic for her character…unless you have seen the latest on set photos that show Summer in her future villain costume. TV Guide did an interview with Arrow’s producer Andrew Kreisberg who talks about the development of Summer’s character Isabel Rochev from a board room-esque character into what is known as the Ravager.
Isabel is far from dead, however. In the closing moments of the episode, we learned that Slade gave her some of his blood so the miracle drug could save her — and make her practically invincible. “Now that she’s got the evil juice in her, as we call it in the writers’ room, she’s Ravager,”
In the comics, the alter ego eventually belongs to Rose Wilson, Slade’s illegitimate daughter who he brainwashes into becoming his apprentice. However, Isabel is definitely not Rose Wilson, since the producers decided to go in a different direction. In fact, they originally had other plans for Ravager. “Isabel was the one thing we weren’t entirely sure about as we were developing the season,” Kreisberg says. “Truthfully, there was a very early iteration of the series where Sara [Caity Lotz] started the season as Ravager, and then we switched over.”
Even after the role was envisioned for Glau, the producers initially planned to keep her board room-esque character quite tame compared to the tough-gal characters Glau played on Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. “When Summer took the part, I was up there on set with her and she’s like, ‘I’ve never done anything like this. I feel much better if I’m kicking somebody,’” Kreisberg says. “And I was like, ‘You’re so good, you should give yourself more credit. We wanted you because you’re a good actress and you’re amazing in this part, not because you can kick a–.’ Then I got to call her and go, ‘Hey, we changed our minds, you get to kick a–.’”
“Part of the reason Isabel disappeared for a while is because we still weren’t quite sure which way to go, whether she should be an ally or a villain,” he continues. “We had written it so that it could turn out either way. The scene that I was picturing was Isabel, Slade and Sebastian [Kevin Alejandro] in Oliver’s office, the triumvirate of evil. Once that happened, there was no way she was not going to be Ravager.”
Show producer Andrew Kreisberg answered a couple questions regarding the next episodes of Arrow after a press preview screening of episode 19 and 20. He also revealed a few interesting things on the development of Summer’s character Isabel Rochev, which you can read below. For more infos on the show follow the link.
We now know that Isabel Rochev is working with Slade, so she’s definitely on the bad side of things. Did Kreisberg and the other writers always know that she was a baddie?
“Isabel was the one thing that we weren’t entirely sure about as we were developing the season,” Kreisberg admitted. “Truthfully, there was a very early iteration of the series where Sara started the season as Ravager and then we switched over…”
Kreisberg also explained why Ms. Rochev was off the canvas for a lot of the recent episodes.
“Part of the reason Isabel disappeared for awhile was we still weren’t sure which way to go whether she should be an ally or a villain and we’d kind of written it where it could turn out either way.”
Also, Kreisberg revealed that Summer Glau was very happy to find out Isabel was going to be on Team Slade so she could finally kick some rear end.
The website KsiteTv had the chance to attend an early screening of this weeks episode of Arrow titled “The Man Under The Hood”. It looks like we get to know more about Summer’s character Isabel and whats up with her.
We learn more about Isabel Rochev. If anyone has questions about what is up with Summer Glau’s Isabel Rochev, some of those questions are answered this week. You’ll have to see if they stick to Isabel’s background in the comics or not, but we can tell you one thing that’s for sure: She is not Rose Wilson, as some have speculated.
Recent on set images revealed more about Isabel Rochev and suggested that she might be Slade’s daughter.
