Last night’s episode of Arrow ended on a pulse-pounding note, as (SPOILERS, obviously) Oliver Queen finally discovered that Slade Wilson is alive – and in Starling City. Next week’s episode, “The Promise”, will explore this shock to Oliver in more detail. However, the majority of the episode will be island flashbacks. Star Stephen Amell has called this episode the best of the series, and judging from the extended promo below, it’s easy to see why.
March 19th’s episode, “Suicide Squad”, could be just as exciting, however. The CW has released new promotional images (via GreenArrowTV) of Amanda Waller and her Squad – Bronze Tiger, Deadshot, and Shrapnel. The episode will focus on Diggle being recruited by ARGUS to complete a mission alongside the team. In addition to the images, we also have a synopsis for the episode, hinting at its plot. Stay tuned for more Arrow news as we have it.
AMANDA WALLER SENDS THE SUICIDE SQUAD OUT ON THEIR FIRST MISSION — Following Slade’s (Manu Bennett) return and his promise to make good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) loved ones, Oliver focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with his former friend. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tries to help but, fearing for her safety, Oliver pushes her away. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. to stop a warlord (guest star Lee Majdoub) he knew from his time in Afghanistan. Always the solider, Diggle agrees to help. However, he’s not prepared when Amanda introduces him to the rest of the team – Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (guest star Sean Maher), all criminals he and Arrow helped put away. Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team and explains the world is a complicated place, but Diggle isn’t sure he agrees. When the mission takes a dangerous turn, Diggle is forced to make a difficult decision. Larry Teng directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Bryan Q. Miller (#216).
