Arrow Season Two Finale Poster Revealed


The CW have released a poster for the second-season finale of Arrow, their DC Comics adaptation. The image debuted last night on Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim's Twitter account. Presumably playing on the dichotomy of being a vigilante versus being a hero -- a theme that has run through the season following the death of Tommy Merlyn in last year's finale -- the poster asks "His city burns. Will he fight fire with fire?" The official synopsis of the episode, at bottom, asks a similar question, wondering whether Oliver will be a killer or a hero in the end, despite everything Deathstroke has put him through this year. It's been a big week for Arrow news -- following on the heels of the season's penultimate episode, we've seen two trailers and 25 photos released. We've also learned that Deadshot and The Suicide Squad will play a role in the episode, while the League of Assassins and Nyssa Raatko will fight alongside Team Arrow (and a masked-up Arsenal) against Deathstroke and his Mirakuru Army. OLIVER MUST DECIDE ONCE AND FOR ALL IF HE'S A KILLER OR A HERO — Slade (Manu Bennett) moves forward with his plan to kill one more person in Oliver's (Stephen Amell) life. While Oliver has fought all year to be more than the killer he once was, when Slade kidnaps someone close to Oliver's heart, Oliver is pushed to the edge and realizes sometimes it takes doing the unthinkable to stop the monster. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) takes on Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) with a little help from some friends, and Thea (Willa Holland) turns to Roy (Colton Haynes) in her time of need. John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Andrew Kreisberg (#223).
