The CW has released a new promo for next week’s episode of Arrow, and it offers up a first look at the tiny Ray Palmer as he attempts to get Felicity and the rest of Team Arrow to rescue him…from Damien Darhk! This is a very interesting twist, and the episode will no doubt play a very big role in setting up the events of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Here’s the synopsis for “Lost Souls,” which reveals more about what to expect from this episode of Arrow:
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.
This sounds like an amazing episode of Arrow on a number of levels. As well as learning more about Ray Palmer’s newfound abilities, a team-up between Black Canary, The Canary, and Speedy also sounds downright awesome. Season four of Arrow has been top notch this year, and next Wednesday can’t get here soon enough.
