We're getting our first look at 'Bratva,' Wednesday's episode of Arrow on The CW. In the 15 images released by the network, we see that Detective Lance returns from rehab to assume his role as deputy mayor, as the previously-released synopsis stated.
We also see Susan, as portrayed by guest star Carly Pope, return in an attempt to score an interview with Deputy Mayor Lance about his addiction. In addition to seeing a glimpse of Talia al Ghul, we see Oliver, Dinah, Felicity, and Diggle make their preparations as they head to Russia to meet up with an old friend of Oliver's.
