With all the breaks occurring this season, Supernatural fans have a valid reason for dubbing this the “Year of Hellatuses,” a term that can be applied to a variety of CW shows. In fact, whenever the aforementioned horror series is forced to endure a hiatus, so too must Arrow, for they’re prime time partners at the moment.
But when Arrow finally does come back in a couple of weeks, expect it to do so with a bang. We say that because not only is Katrina Law returning as Nyssa al Ghul, but she’ll have the mysterious Thanatos Guild hot on her heels. In short, this shadowy cabal is made up by surviving members of the League of Assassins who are in pursuit of a box left behind by Malcolm Merlyn. And, if you were to ask us, seeds for what’s to come in season 7 could very well be planted here, so pay close attention to whatever may happen.
Fortunately, the network has sated our hunger for the time being by releasing the first batch of photos from said episode. Oddly enough, no images of Nyssa al Ghul are to be found in the accompanying gallery, but we are given confirmation that Colton Haynes will be sticking around as Roy Harper for at least a little longer.
Regardless, the images of the original Team Arrow that have been provided are pretty sharp. Really, these pics of Green Arrow, Spartan and Speedy look good enough to be used as desktop wallpapers or as lock screens on smart phones. On top of that, it looks like Felicity is messing around with a Lament Configuration in one of them, but fear not, because that’s just Malcolm’s box.
For more on “The Thanatos Guild,” be sure to check out the official synopsis:
NYSSA AL GHUL COMES BACK TO STAR CITY WITH A DANGEROUS MESSAGE FOR THEA — Nyssa Al Ghul (guest star Katrina Law) returns to Star City to warn Thea (Willa Holland) that a group of renegade League of Assassins members are planning to attack her. This group, led by Athena (guest star Kyra Zagorsky), is intent on finding a mysterious box that Malcolm left behind and will stop at nothing to get it. Nyssa helps Oliver (Stephen Amell) come to a life-changing realization. Joel Novoa directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Ben Sokolowski (#616).
Arrow returns with new episodes on Thursday, March 29 on The CW.
