The CW has released the official synopsis for "The Recruits," the second episode of Arrow's fifth season.
The episode sees the new Team Arrow, including Mr. Terrific, Wild Dog, and Artemis, take to the training room with Oliver. But who isn't on the same page as the Green Arrow?
And where's Vigilante?! Fans know that the character will be showing up this season on Arrow, but it seems as though he's not actually part of Team Arrow. Should there be a "yet" at the end of that sentence, or will Vigilante turn out to be somebody who Oliver doesn't have such a cozy relationship with?
Given the fact that Oliver is the mayor, he should probably get on just fine with Vigilante's civilian identity -- the city's district attorney. It's just a question of how the costumed avengers fare when they square off that's in question.
And how does all this -- or is it the events of the Bratva flashbacks? -- tie into the appearance of Prometheus, a new villain whom showrunners have said Oliver is responsible for creating?
You can check it out below.
SUIT UP — Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) new recruits for Team Arrow are Curtis (Echo Kellum), Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gonzalez) and Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin). Unfortunately, the Green Arrow’s training methods prove to be too much for some of them to handle.
Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Oliver’s initiation into the Bratva continues.0comments
