Arrow Season 6 Premiere: Who Survived the Island Explosion?


Arrow Season 6 Premiere: Who Survived the Island Explosion?

Caution: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the season six premiere of Arrow!

Arrow just shot one straight through our hearts in the season six opener on Thursday night. (See what we did there?) 

Nearly every character was left in danger at the end of last season’s finale, when Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) shot himself, activating his own kill switch and detonating bombs planted all over Lian Yu. All Oliver (Stephen Amell) could do was hold onto his son William (Jack Moore) and watch the island blow up, potentially killing almost everyone Oliver knew and loved, including William’s mom. 

Surprise surprise, it was only William’s mom Samantha (Anna Hopkins) who didn’t make it off the island, meaning Oliver now has to step up and be a real father to his young son. And, unfortunately, Thea (Willa Holland) is currently still in a coma after getting caught in the explosion trying to save Samantha’s life. 

The survivors were revealed slowly throughout the episode, which picked up six months after the island explosion. 

Of course, this means the following made it out alive: Diggle (David Ramsey), Rene (Rick Gonzalez), Curtis (Echo Kellum), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Dinah (Juliana Harkavy), Quentin (Paul Blackthorne), Black Siren (Katie Cassidy), Slade (Manu Bennett).

But what about Talia, Nyssa and Evelyn? We don’t know yet! Ruuude.

Ahead of the premiere, executive producer Marc Guggenheimtold E! News Oliver would have to step up as a father this season. (And now we definitely know why!)

I can say that whether or not Samantha is alive or dead, Oliver is going to be a bigger part of William’s life in season six,” he said, revealing that Oliver might surprise viewers with his parenting skills.

“I would say he’s better than you expect,” he previewed. “He doesn’t exactly have a lot of role models. He doesn’t have a lot to work off of when it comes to being a parent. He’s pretty much on his own here.”

Arrow airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on the CW.

Lauren Conrad Takes Her ''Little Lamb'' Liam Tell to His First Pumpkin Patch

Oh, baby! Halloween just came early for Lauren Conrad and her little man.

The former Laguna Beach star-turned-fashion designer celebrated the arrival of Fall like any new mama should—with a trip to the pumpkin patch, of course! Lauren dressed her 3-month-old son, Liam Tell, as a furry lamb for the occasion and there’s a pretty precious snapshot to show for it. 

Dressed in an October-appropriate orange sweater and distressed denim, Lauren is all smiles as she sits among the pumpkins with Liam on her lap. 

“This little lamb had his first trip to the pumpkin patch today,” she captioned the photo shared to Instagram on Thursday. Too cute, right?!

Since giving birth to her first child with husband William Tell on July 5, Lauren and motherhood have gone hand in hand oh-so perfectly. 

Lauren is doing great,” an insider told E! News about six weeks after Liam’s arrival. “She’s still getting acclimated to life with a newborn, but is really enjoying the quiet time at home with her little guy.”

The source added, “She is enjoying going on walks with the baby and her dogs in her neighborhood. She loves taking him outside and getting some fresh air and they live right by the beach so it’s really peaceful.”

Conrad, 31, introduced the couple’s son on a People magazine cover, articulating in the accompanying interview just how much she looked forward to welcoming children of her own.

“I always hoped I would have a boy,” she gushed. “Boys are so fun. I was a tomboy, and I always play best with boys. When we found out, I was so excited… I was looking at him the other day, and I was like, ‘I understand now why people keep having babies!'”

With the holiday season right around the corner, fans can expect plenty more themed-photo shoots from Lauren and Liam!
