The CW has released the first promo for next week’s instalment of Arrow, and this one introduces a dangerous new foe for Team Arrow to square off against. Last night’s episode was solid enough, but felt a bit like filler, so expectations going into this one will be high, especially as Damien Darhk’s plan for Star City remains a mystery.
For further information about the episode (which is titled “Unchained”), here’s the official synopsis courtesy of the network:
The team faces off against a formidable villain nicknamed The Calculator (guest star Tom Amandes). Meanwhile, Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) makes her move and Roy Harper (guest star Colton Haynes) returns to Star City. Kevin Fair directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Beth Schwartz.
There’s been a lot of speculation that The Calculator is Felicity’s father, and while there’s nothing in this Arrow promo which points to that being the case, the fact that these two will be pitting their minds against each other is definitely interesting and could be leading to some sort of reveal.
Plus, that shocking death in this week’s Arrow proved that the series still has plenty of surprises up its sleeve, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
Tell us, though, do you think there’s some sort of connection between the two characters?
