“Arrow” is currently on break, but the midseason finale changed the status quo in a major way when Mister Terrific, Wild Dog and Black Canary all parted ways with the team.
Now only Oliver, Diggle and Felicity remain, and they have their work cut out for them because Cayden James has put together a team of villains who are dead-set on destroying the city.
Oliver needs back up now more than ever, and according to the official synopsis for the midseason premiere, he’ll be teaming up with an unlikely ally. The synopsis reads as follows:
“OLIVER DISCOVERS A SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT CAYDEN JAMES — Despite losing half his team, Oliver (Stephen Amell) remains confident that he, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (David Ramsey) can stop Cayden James (guest star Michael Emerson) and Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). However, when he discovers one of Cayden’s secrets, he decides to team up with an unlikely ally. Meanwhile, Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) spends time with Vince (guest star Johann Urb). James Bamford directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Emilio Ortega Aldrich (#610). Original airdate 1/18/2018.”
So who could the unlikely ally be? We’ll find out when “Arrow” returns on Thursday, January 18, 2018.
