We’re two episodes into “Arrow” season 5, and so far the show has taken a “back to basics” approach with the new episodes.
Next week’s episode will feature the debut of Stephen Amell’s opponent from SummerSlam 2015, wrestling star Cody Rhodes. Cody will be playing a drug dealer named Derek Sampson, and he’ll be facing off against the Green Arrow.
Oliver recruited Wild Dog for Team Arrow 2.0 in the latest episode, and according to the synopsis Wild Dog will find out that Derek Sampson is more than he can handle after he goes after him alone.
The CW has released some new photos from next week’s episode titled “A Matter of Trust” and you can check them out along with a synopsis below.
WRESTLING STAR CODY RHODES BRINGS THE SMACK DOWN TO STAR CITY —Now that Oliver (Stephen Amell) has his new team, they are ready to hit the streets but Oliver doesn’t feel they are ready. Headstrong Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gonzalez) defies the Green Arrow’s orders and sets out on his own after a new drug dealer, Derek Sampson (guest star Cody Rhodes), who is terrorizing Star City. Sampson proves more powerful than Wild Dog and it is up to the Green Arrow to go head to head with Sampson to save his teammate.
