The CW has released a first look at next week’s episode of Arrow, and after tonight’s shocking effort, it looks like things are about to get even worse for Green Arrow and company.
For more details on what to expect from this instalment of the show – titled “Code of Silence” – here’s the official description:
Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team uncover HIVE’s plan to take out Team Arrow once and for all. With HIVE’s next attack imminent, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) wonders if Donna (guest star Charlotte Ross) is safer without him in her life. Meanwhile, with the wedding fast approaching, Oliver begins to feel guilty that he hasn’t told Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) about his son. James Bamford directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Oscar Balderrama.
While season four of Arrow has been a huge improvement over last year, it really feels like the show has lost some momentum since returning last month. However, putting the spotlight back on Damien Darhk and HIVE (as they look to stop Team Arrow once and for all) is a smart decision and will hopefully set things back on track after what was certainly a solid first half.
Whether or not that will be the case remains to be seen, but this week’s Arrow certainly had its fair share of surprises and we’re looking forward to seeing what happens next.
