For everyone who’s been experiencing ‘Arrow‘ withdrawals, never fear! The show’s mid-season premiere is only a few weeks away, and the showrunners have kindly given us the synopsis for the premiere so we have something to mull over until we see the return of the Quiver Crew to our screens.
It seems as though the team is slowly realizing something went wrong during Oliver’s battle with Ras Al Ghul, though Felicity appears to be the one holding onto hope that Oliver is still alive, at least until Merlyn shows up. Also exciting is this is the episode where Laurel will officially become the Black Canary, and the “Canary Trilogy” (as the producers have dubbed it) will begin. And if all of that was not exciting enough, the synopsis also states that Ray Palmer will be using some of the A.T.O.M. technology in this episode, which means we might get to see how the show will handle his shrinking ability.
Check out the full synopsis below to see what the show has in store when it returns on January 21st!
‘Left Behind’ – THE TEAM DEALS WITH OLIVER’S DISAPPEARANCE — In the aftermath of Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) fight with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Arsenal (Colton Haynes) continue to protect the city in the Arrow’s absence. However, after three days without hearing from Oliver, they begin to fear the worst may have happened to their friend. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) refuses to believe that Oliver could be dead until Merlyn (John Barrowman) pays the team a surprise visit. Thea (Willa Holland) suspects there is something more behind Oliver’s disappearance and asks Merlyn for a favor. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) tests a part of his new suit and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) takes up the mantle of the Black Canary. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Erik Oleson (#310). Original airdate 1/21/2015.
