Arrow will return from a brief three-week hiatus next week with "The Offer", airing Wednesday, March 18 at 8 PM ET. To celebrate, The CW has released a new poster featuring Oliver Queen from this episode. The poster comes just one day after The CW announced the Season 3 finale date for Arrow on May 13. If that wasn't enough, we also have a photo gallery for "Suicidal Tendencies", airing Wednesday, March 25.
"The Offer" finds Oliver (Stephen Amell) still weighed down by his last meeting with Ra's al Ghul (guest star Matt Nable), as he returns home to find that a new villain and his crew have started terrorizing Starling City - Michael Amar AKA Murmur (guest star Adrian Glynn Mcmorran), a man whose mouth has been sewn shut. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) bond over their issues with their fathers and Nyssa make Laurel an offer. Thea (Willa Holland) is forced to come to terms with her father after Oliver brings Malcom (John Barrowman) to the loft to recover, and Lance (Paul Blackthorne) shuts out both Laurel and the Arrow.
The following week's episode "Suicidal Tendencies" sets a much happier tone right off the bat, but also features the return of a few familiar villains. It's celebration time as Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) get married. However, Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe) interrupts their honeymoon and tells them the Suicide Squad has been given a new mission - rescue United States Senator Joseph Cray (guest star Steven Culp) from a hostage situation in the Republic of Kasnia. Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) breaks down the mission and introduces them to the newest member of the Suicide Squad, Cupid (guest star Amy Gumenick). Meanwhile, Oliver learns about Ray's new Atom costume and the two have a heated stand-off. Felicity and Ray hit a rough patch. Take a look at the poster and photos below, to prepare yourself for Arrow's glorious return next week.
