The CW has released the first clip from tomorrow night’s episode of Arrow, and it picks up with Felicity desperately trying to discover what’s happened to Ray Palmer. The closing moments of the last instalment of Arrow featured the reveal that The Atom is still alive, something which won’t surprise anyone who has seen so much as a single poster for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Still, the story behind how he survived and how he ended up in the hands of the villainous Damien Darhk definitely promises to be very interesting, as does how he’ll factor into Arrow moving forward.
Here’s a synopsis for the episode which is titled “Lost Souls”:
Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) is frantic when she learns that Ray (guest star Brandon Routh) is alive and being held by Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough). Felicity’s guilt over not finding Ray sooner causes tension between her and Oliver (Stephen Amell). Meanwhile, Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) joins Laurel (Katie Cassidy), Thea (Willa Holland) and the team on a rescue mission for Ray. However, the effects of the Lazarus Pit take over and threaten to jeopardize the entire operation. Donna Smoak (guest star Charlotte Ross) returns to Star City. Antonio Negret directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Emilio Ortega Aldrich.
Like pretty much every single episode of Arrow this year, “Lost Souls” is clearly going to be a big one with some major ramifications for the characters, and we can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
