We’re only two weeks away from the return of seeing Team Arrow helping clean up Star City and The CW has finally been kind enough to give us a synopsis of the midseason premiere of ‘Arrow‘! When the series returns, we’ll see the first episode titled “Shattered Lives” directed by Andi Armaganian based on a script by Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes.

There is going to be a lot to unpack here as when we last left off Oliver had just been let out of prison and had no time to really catch up with his friends and family before having to work with the Star City Police Department to find the new Green Arrow vigilante who has been parading around town. Not only that, but politics are likely going to get in the way as the mayor is not thrilled about Oliver’s release or that he’s working with law enforcement.

The synopsis for the upcoming episode is as follows:


Oliver (Stephen Amell) is ready to get back to work with the SCPD and to focus on his marriage with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). However, when Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) tasks Oliver with tracking the new Green Arrow (Sea Shimooka) things take a surprising turn. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) must answer to ARGUS about Diaz (Kirk Acevedo).

Oliver has a lot to try and work out with Felicity from turning himself into the FBI and making a deal with a nearly all-powerful cosmic being. Oh, and of course as we’ve learned it isn’t just a random person dressed up as Green Arrow who is running around but Oliver’s half-sister which will undoubtedly throw another wrench into the works.
