There’s only one episode left before the CW’s cross-over event between Arrow and The Flash and this week’s episode of the network’s first superhero hit, titled “Brotherhood,” is a bit of a set-up for the annual mashup.
Check out the latest preview clip for Wednesday night’s episode:
The Lazarus Pit continues to cast a major shadow on the entire group as Team Arrow discovers that yet another former character and friend may still be alive.
Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) continues his on-going battle with Oliver (Stephen Amell) and reveals the shocking truth to the superhero – Diggle’s brother is still alive. This is far from good news though, as the team discovers that while he’s alive, Andy (Eugene Byrd) is under Damien’s control.
Diggle has spent the majority of his time on Arrow trying to discover why his brother had been assassinated. Over the course of the show, Diggle had discovered that his little brother was involved in war profiteering and that Darhk’s organization, H.I.V.E. had Andy killed.
Meanwhile, the lingering effects of Thea’s (Willa Holland) trip into the Lazarus Pit continue to cast a major shadow on the entire group, while Oliver’s little sister is still trying to come to grips with her “new” self.
Although Thea tried to stick to the straight and narrow of a regular life, even asking out Oliver’s campaign manager, Alex (Parker Young), the blood lust she’s been dealing with since her resurrection is becoming too much to deal with.
Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) will continue to focus on their own future together as well, particularly on the heels of last week’s Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) rescue. Also, keep in mind that Wednesday’s episode won’t just be setting up the Arrow and Flash crossover – we’re also getting ready for 2016’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Arrow airs at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday on The CW.
