With just two episodes left in Arrow Season 3, The CW has released a new preview for next week's penultimate episode, "This Is My Sword", airing Wednesday, May 6 at 8 PM ET. One of the surprising moments revealed in just 30 seconds of footage is our first look at Rila Fukushima in her full Katana costume. Of course, fans have seen her character Tatsu, the former wife of Maseo (Karl Yune) during a number of flashback scenes in Arrow Season 3, but this is the first time we've seen her suit up as Katana.
This trailer also shows that the former Oliver, now known as Al Sah-him (Stephen Amell) finishes his training and is left with two final tasks to become the next Ra's al Ghul. We see Ra's (guest star Matthew Nable) telling Oliver/Al to literally "bring death" to Starling City, but not before he marries Ra's daughter, Nyssa (Katrina Law). Another surprise is Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) aligning himself with Team Arrow, as he joins Black Canary (Katie Cassidy), Diggle (David Ramsey), Katana and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) to square off with Al Sah-him, although it doesn't seem to end well for them.
While things seem quite dark for Team Arrow, there could be a light at the end of the tunnel, since the season finale, airing on May 13, is entitled "My Name Is Oliver Queen", which could either indicate that Oliver cuts ties with the League of Assassins, or, as unlikely as it may be, someone else assumes the identity of Oliver Queen. Along with this new trailer we also have photos that give us a better look at Katana's costume, which you can check out under the trailer. How do you think Arrow Season 3 will come to an end? Let us know what you think, after checking out the trailer and photos below.
