Looks like Oliver and the ARROW team are going to be dealing with the Russian mafia stuff when they go on a mission.
It looks like Oliver wants what Anatoly owes him in this week’s Arrow: a favor. Of course, a life debt is a pretty big favor, so we’ll get to see what comes of it, if anything.
From what we see of the trailer, Tina/Dinah does her Black Canary scream. And the side story deals with Quentin Lance and his return to the Force.
OLIVER RETURNS TO RUSSIA — A mission takes Oliver (Stephen Amell), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and team to Russia where they meet up with Oliver’s old friend, Anatoly (guest star David Nykl). Meanwhile, fresh out of rehab, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) returns to the mayor’s office ready to get back to work.
However, when Susan (guest star Carly Pope) asks for an interview with Lance to discuss his addiction, he balks and it’s up to Rene (guest star Rick Gonzalez) to help keep things on track.
Ben Bray directed the episode written by Oscar Balderrama & Emilio Ortega Aldrich.
Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm on The CW.
