Arrow Sneak Preview: Honor Thy Father

China White

The first episode of Arrow proved to be a hit among reviewers and a hit in the ratings. Will good word of mouth help the second episode soar even higher? It’s entirely possible, as many will tune it to see Kelly Hu guest star as DC Comics villain China White.

The second Arrow episode is entitled “Honor Thy Father.” According to The CW description, “Oliver heads to the courthouse to get his death certificate repealed and is pleasantly surprised to run into Laurel, who is there prosecuting Martin Somers (guest star Ty Olsson), a criminal with ties to the Chinese Triad. Oliver recognizes Martin's name from his father's book and sets his sights on taking him down. Martin orders the Triad to "take care of" Laurel so they send their top mercenary – China White (Hu) – after her, an act that culminates in a battle between Arrow and China White. Meanwhile, Moira and Walter (guest star Colin Salmon) ask Oliver to take over the company.”

David Barrett directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim and written by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim. The “Honor Thy Father” episode of Arrow airs on The CW on Wednesday, October 17 starting at 8 PM ET.
