“Arrow” returned this week with “Legacy” and things were very different in Star City. Team Arrow doesn’t quite look the same nowadays as Thea has stepped down, Laurel is dead, and Diggle is working with the Special Forces in Chechnya.
In the third episode of the season titled “Penance” Oliver will have to make up for Diggle’s absence when he steps up to help Lyla on a secret mission. The CW has released the official synopsis for the episode, and you can check it out below.
OLIVER STEPS IN FOR DIGGLE — Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) team up on a secret mission for Diggle (David Ramsey). Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) finds out and disapproves of the plan and opts to stay behind. When Tobias Church (guest star Chad L. Coleman) launches a deadly assault against the city, Felicity must decide if she wants to send the recruits out sans the Green Arrow.
“Arrow” airs Wednesdays on the CW.
