The CW has released the first official images from next week’s episode of Arrow, and they give us our best look yet at Vixen. Played by Megalyn E.K., the character is making her live-action debut here after starring in an online only CW Seed series which teamed her up with both Green Arrow and The Flash.
Aside from Vixen, another surprising reveal in the gallery above is the fact that the mother of William (Oliver Queen’s secret son who was abducted by Damien Darhk at the end of last week’s episode of Arrow) is about to learn that Ollie is also the Green Arrow. How Felicity is going to feel about these revelations remains to be seen, but we’re excited to see how it plays out.
For further details on what to expect, here’s the official synopsis for “Taken”:
Oliver (Stephen Amell) realizes he needs help battling Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) so he calls in an old friend – Vixen (guest star Megalyn E.K.). Using her magical ability to summon animal powers, Vixen gets a lock on Darhk’s location and the team goes to war. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) has a heart-to-heart talk with Malcolm (John Barrowman). Gregory Smith directed the episode with story by Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Keto Shimizu & Brian Ford Sullivan.
It’s about time the war between Team Arrow and Darhk intensifies, and this looks set to be another fantastic episode of the series.
