The first promo has been released for next week’s episode of Arrow, and it picks up almost immediately after the events of tonight’s instalment (which revolved around the return of Ray Palmer). As it turns out, The Atom being kept prisoner by Damien Darhk isn’t the only secret the villain is keeping; he also has something – or someone – very close to Diggle!
That’s right, Andy Diggle is still alive. That’s despite the fact that Diggle was told that Deadshot assassinated him, and it looks like the recent revelation that he may not have been a very good guy also wasn’t true.

Here’s the official description of “Brotherhood,” courtesy of The CW:
Team Green Arrow’s ongoing battle with Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) is complicated by a shocking revelation. Thea’s (Willa Holland) bloodlust returns and she loses control in front of Alex (guest star Parker Young). James Bamford directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Keto Shimizu.
Now that we know the “shocking revelation” mentioned above is the fact that Diggle’s brother is still alive, it’s clear that his status quo in Arrow is going to shift in a major way. After all, his brother’s assassination has been a big motivator for his actions in the series, and the fact that Andy is alive and under the control of Damien Darhk is certainly a surprise.
