Following last night’s midseason premiere of Arrow, The CW has released a first look at what’s to come in next week’s instalment. With Oliver Queen’s plan to take down Damien Darhk not going quite the way he expected, it’s clear that Team Arrow are going to have to rethink things if they hope to see Star City, and that’s going to begin with a team-up between Diggle and his brother.
For more details on what’s to come in next week’s episode of Arrow – titled “A.W.O.L.” – here’s the official synopsis courtesy of the network:
Diggle (David Ramsey) must learn to trust his brother Andy (guest star Eugene Byrd) when an enemy of their wartime past, an agent of the criminal organization Shadowspire, pays a visit to Star City. However, Diggle learns more than he bargained for about their shared time at war. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) has to learn a whole new way of life. Charlotte Brandstrom directed the episode written by Brian Ford Sullivan & Emilio Ortega Aldrich.
Shaking up the status quo with Felicity is definitely an interesting direction for Arrow to take things in, and puts the heroes in a very difficult position out in the field. Of course, shaking up the series like this may be no bad thing, but it remains to be seen just how permanent a change this ends up being.
Either way, season four of Arrow has been great so far, so here’s hoping it keeps up that same level of quality throughout its second half.
