The CW has released the official descriptions for the upcoming third episodes of Arrow and The Flash‘s fourth and second seasons, respectively.
The first is for Arrow, and it reveals that Green Arrow and Diggle won’t be wasting any time in taking the fight to Damien Darhk and H.I.V.E. We also now know it will be Laurel who takes Sara’s body to Nanda Parbat in a bid to bring her back from the dead, something which is going to lead to Matt Ryan’s Constantine showing up in the fourth episode.
Here’s the synopsis for “Restoration”:
The growing tension between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) puts both their lives at risk when they go after Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and a H.I.V.E. deployed meta-human. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) talks Thea (Willa Holland) into returning to Nanda Parbat to ask her father (John Barrowman) to put Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) into the Lazarus Pit. However, Laurel is surprised when Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) refuses to do it. Wendey Stanzler directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Speed Weed.
Meanwhile in Central City, The Flash will be squaring off with Captain Cold. The villain has become a fan-favourite character in the series, and the focus being on his family here should make for a fun episode, especially with Michael Ironside playing his father. It will be interesting to see if this ties into DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in any way, especially as Cold is set to take on a starring role there.
Here’s the synopsis for “Family of Rogues”:
When Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team find out Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) has been kidnapped, they form an uneasy alliance with his sister, Lisa (guest star Peyton List). However, Barry feels double-crossed when he finds out Snart is working with his father, Lewis Snart (guest star Michael Ironside) on a heist. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) is faced with a difficult decision. John Showalter directed the episode written by Julian Meiojas & Katherine Walczak.
