‘Arrow’ Preview Photos: Oliver and Black Canary Vs. The “League of Assassins!”
Last night's all-new 'Arrow' installment "Crucible" may have dialed back the DC references from the previous week's "Broken Dolls," but next week's "League of Assassins" has comic book goodness written all over it. Oliver and the Canary (Caity Loitz) will take in the titular League as led by Al-Owal ('Homeland''s Navid Negahban), and we've got the first photos to prove it!
Though no word if we'll be seeing the name-dropped shadowy leader of the "League of Assassins" this season, Oliver and
The Canary Sara Lance will have their hands full fending off the trained killers, as well as a figurehead from the League with ties to one Malcolm Merlyn! Malcolm is nowhere to be found in the photos, instead focusing on the fight sequences and Oliver's latest argument with Laurel, but who's to say we won't see a few flashbacks?
Here's what The CW had to say on next Wednesday's "League of Assassins":
THE CANARY SINGS — While Oliver (Stephen Amell) tends to the Canary’s (Caity Lotz) wounds, he tries to get her to talk about where she came from but she refuses. However, after Oliver and the Canary are attacked at the Queen mansion by a trained killer from the League of Assassins, she confesses to how she’s connected with the nefarious group.
Meanwhile with Moira (Susanna Thompson) facing multiple counts of murder and conspiracy for her part in the destruction of The Glades, the Assistant District Attorney (guest star Dylan Bruce) offers her a choice – plead guilty now and avoid the death penalty or take your chances in court. Thea (Willa Holland) begs her mother to fight for her life but Moira seems resolute about taking the offer. Meanwhile, Oliver is furious with Laurel (Katie Cassidy) for joining the prosecution’s team on his mother’s case.
It certainly looks as if we'll be in for one of the most DC-heavy, action-packed hours of 'Arrow' yet, so take a look at the full set of "League of Assassins" photos below, and give us your 'Arrow' season 2 predictions in the comments!
