This coming week, Oliver makes a return to Lian Yu in ep. 14 “The Return” of Arrow. Only this time, he makes a return not to escape from the reality of life in Starling City. He is not there because he was stranded on the island after a ship wreck. This time, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) goes to the island with his sister, Thea (Willa Holland) at the request of Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman). Merlyn is set to help the Queen siblings become battle ready for an upcoming conflict with Ra’s Al Guhl (Matt Nable) and the League of Assassins that is sure to come. And yes, we will see Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) again. Really, what better way is there to prepare for a battle with a man who seems unstoppable than to train against a Mirakuru soldier with super strength and mad ninja skills?
Check out the promo for “The Return” on Arrow below.
Arrow’s “The Return” will also show Oliver and Maseo (Karl Yune) in Starling City during the flashbacks, while on the island in present day. It’s a clever twist on the show set-up that we normally see, still showing Oliver never in the same place in present and past. We also are likely to see Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell) during the flashbacks.
See the extended promo with completely different (and more revealing) footage for ep. 14 “The Return” here.
Be sure to watch Arrow on CW on Wednesday nights at 8/7c to see what happens next!
