As we inch closer to the season six premiere of Arrow - and the resolution to season five's earth-shattering cliffhanger - the cast and crew appear to be hard at work at the season's third episode.
Production recently began on the episode, which is titled 'Next of Kin.' As is custom for Arrow episodes, the script's title page was unveiled on Twitter, courtesy of executive producer Marc Guggenheim. You can check it out in the tweet below.
The title is rather ambiguous, especially with much of the characters' fates currently up in the air. There is a chance it could have something to do with the extended family of one of the characters, or in the familial dynamic between Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), Thea Queen (Willa Holland), and Oliver's son, William.
The episode is being directed by Kevin Tancharoen, who previously helmed Arrow entries 'Monument Point' and 'Kapiushon'. He has also directed episodes of all of Arrow's sister shows, as well as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the upcoming Marvel's Inhumans.
You can find the description for Arrow below:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey),computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his "family".
