As Deadshot so appropriately says during “Suicidal Tendencies”: “The Suicide Squad rides again.”
Well… a significantly pared down Squad, but a Squad none the less.
The team has lost a couple of its members since its eponymous episode in season 2, leaving Diggle and Lyla to team up with Deadshot and the newest member of the Squad, the lovesick Cupid on a new mission.
While Diggle (David Ramsey) is planning to tie the knot, Oliver (Stephen Amell) sets his sights on confronting Starling’s new hero: Ray Palmer, aka The Atom (Brandon Routh).
“We’re not super happy about it only because the vigilantism that’s going on in Starling City, they aren’t well-trained,” Ramsey tells EW. “It’s more that issue than it is anything else. The intentions are good, but these people aren’t trained and they have their reservations about that.”
Before the season ends, The Flash will see at least one more crossover with Arrow. And it’s likely going to make life much, much more difficult for Barry Allen.
Actor Doug Jones revealed on Twitter that his villainous character Deathbolt will be making an appearance on the penultimate season one episode of The Flash a few weeks after debuting on Arrow.
Not only that, but he also teased the episode’s name, which should give fans a clue as to what it entails.
In a way, tonight’s Arrow was a return to basics. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a simple “Arrow and company stop low-level bad guy from committing a non-destroy the city crime” episode. It was a refreshing change of pace to take a step back from the League of Assassin antics we’ve been dealing with, and at times “The Offer” was reminiscent of some of the first season’s better episodes. The return of Quentin Lance’s animosity toward the vigilante definitely added to that effect.
Now that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) has declined Ra’s al Ghul’s (Matt Nable) offer, Team Arrow is definitely in danger—remember, it isn’t so much an offer as it is a demand.
Rumors that not everyone would make it out of this season alive were, surprisingly, first sparked by the cast, who detailed on Twitter that they had just shot a very emotionally draining scene. “Goodbyes are tough,” Amell tweeted. So, is someone really getting killed off?
Arrow viewers won’t have to wait long to find out if Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is going to become the new Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) since the Emerald Archer will make his decision by the end of Wednesday’s episode.
“The first act of our 16th episode is essentially the sales pitch,” Amell tells EW. “I even say to Ra’s, ‘Is all of this supposed to impress me?’ and he says, ‘No, this is supposed to inform you.’ He lays everything out and Oliver is a little more taken with it than some people might expect.”
For an untitled drama, the latest Arrow/Flash spin-off is really ramping up its cast.
When Arrow returns (Wednesday, 8 p.m. ET on The CW), Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will be facing a very tough decision after Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) extended the Emerald Archer an offer to become the new Ra’s al Ghul and leader of the League of Assassins.
Ahead of Saturday’s PaleyFest panel honoring the series, a new—and very spoilery—trailer revealed that there’s a prophecy stating that the man who doesn’t perish at the blade of Ra’s al Ghul will become the new Ra’s al Ghul. However, Oliver may not actually have a choice in the matter. “It’s very interesting to have a big bad this year who is now very invested in Oliver staying alive,” Amell says. “If you know Ra’s al Ghul and you know his tactics…you realize that it’s an offer in name only. It’s not really an offer. It’s a demand. If Oliver says no, there are going to be incredibly dire consequences.”
