Official preview trailer for the Arrow episode "Irreconcilable Differences" Arrow “Irreconcilable Differences” Preview Trailer

There isn’t a new Arrow tonight (November 30) since we already got an episode this week, but on December 7, we’ll have a new episode which is called “Irreconcilable Differences.”

The CW hasn’t released any photos yet, but from the trailer we see there’s a betrayal from a member of Team Arrow… and a party to celebrate Oliver and Felicity overshadowing Barry and Iris at their own wedding getting married at the end of this year’s crossover. Donna Smoak and Thea are both there for the festivities! The episode description found below the trailer, however, doesn’t mention any of those things. Go figure.


BLACK SIREN KIDNAPS LANCE— Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is kidnaped by Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) and Cayden James (guest star Michael Emerson), who are looking to trade Lance’s life for a weapon of mass destruction. Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Team Green Arrow must figure out a way to save Lance while still keeping the city safe.  Laura Belsey directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Sarah Tarkoff (#609).  Original airdate 12/7/2017.

    lol at “overshadowing Barry and Iris.” *Chuckles* I don’t think that happened at all. In fact, the whole main subplot of the crossover was building to Olicity’s wedding. They’re the only two who started the crossover in one place emotionally and ended it in another. Plus WestAllen had some lovely vows. There was no overshadowing at all.

    I do think both couples deserved their own special days though but I’ve always doubted they’d want to dedicate that much screentime to romance because oh the horror.

      I would have preferred that. Horning in on Barry and Iris’ wedding – even though they’re good friends – was so tacky. At least with a real wedding family like William, Donna, etc. could all be there. And hopefully no Nazi attacks.

        Idk if I’d call it tacky. It definitely could’ve been handled better but I could see they were pressed for time and the whole point was that Felicity was inspired by WestAllen’s vows, enough to prompt her own proposal. So I know why they did it. Definitely could’ve been written better but I’m never gonna start hating on Felicity for it, unlike some. It’s just a product of poor writing and Guggenheim and Kreisberg not realizing how it could come across to viewers.

          If I had been writing it… (which I would never be, and I’m not suggesting my idea would be “better”) I would have had Barry and Iris say their “I do”s and finish their thing, and THEN have Felicity say “you know, this makes me want to do something… how about when we get back to Star City, we get the mayor to expedite a marriage license, and make ourselves official?”

            But then it wouldn’t have been a double wedding, and the writers clearly wanted a double wedding.

            I’d understand the critiscm if Oliver and Felicity had jumped in during the Church wedding and asked for a turn, but the low key, spontaneous one in the park – the one all about grabbing a moment when you can because who knows what will happen – makes total thematic sense, given the rest of the crossover.

            This. Being inspired is one thing. Interrupting best friends finally getting to the rest of their wedding day? So rude. Anyone doing that in real life would’ve probably lost at least one friend. Women know especially that you do not upstage a bride. Ever. That’s one of the worst sins of the girl code. As it is, Olicity didn’t have a marriage license, so it doesn’t matter what they or John said, it isn’t legal.

            IDK, I feel like even if that had happened people would still be complaining. They love making Felicity and Olicity the scapegoat sometimes. It’s a shame you have to join in too tbh. 🙁

      “All the haters” = most viewers including major media outlets like E! Online, remember.

        teehee they’re still talking about Olicity though which is all they wanted. It’s all buzz in the end!

        But when the haters had more of a problem with a Jewish woman (whose grandparents survived the holocaust) wanting to be happy after facing off with Nazis then the actual Nazis and trying to humanize it, maybe some of them should check their priorities. So maybe Oliver and Felicity were selfish when they almost lost each other.. You know what Barry and Iris understood. And if we are being picky the ceremony only happened because Felicity and Oliver suggested Diggle. And talking about tacky wasnt the fact that Diggle was marrying the guy who erased baby Sara from the existence with his selfish actions, tacky as well?

          It was tacky. Also it was tacky that Diggle was the one to marry them when they didn’t even bother to invite him to their big wedding!

          (Guess it was lost in the mail with Jesse Quick, Julian Albert, Jay Garrick, and Linda Park’s invitations)

    You are giving much value to the protocols! None of this matters in the face of everything that has just passed, almost died, lost a friend, life is too short to hold small things before the greatness of celebration of LOVE !! I understood that at that moment what matters is to be together !! THE MESSAGE THAT IS, IS: LIVE THE LIFE THE BEST WAY TO BE! (Sorry translate)
