Arrow: "The Climb" Synopsis Released

In what is almost certainly a partial synopsis, Arrow's upcoming ninth episode of its third season has been teased in a holiday-themed list of programs released by The CW.

In the episode, Alex Kingston will return as Dinah Lance, mother to Sara and Laurel, who is brought home for the holidays.

...Hope she doesn't intend to spend much time with Sara, because that would be awkward.

The episode will be directed by Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters director Thor Freudenthal, who was previously discussed as directing the season finale.
