We might still be another week away from a new episode of Arrow, but Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim gives us some insight into the next episode titled, Suicide Squad. The episode feature a cumulation of the seeds that have been planted as far back as episode 3 of season 1. Now we start to see the results of it all.
In the episode, Diggle is recruited by Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. to stop a warlord (guest star Lee Majdoub) he knew from his time in Afghanistan. Always the solider, Diggle agrees to help. However, he’s not ready when Amanda introduces him to the rest of the team — Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (guest star Sean Maher), all criminals he and Arrow helped put away.
Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team and explains the world is a complicated place, but Diggle isn’t sure he agrees. When the mission takes a dangerous turn, Diggle is forced to make a difficult decision.
Unfortunately like I before mentioned, we still have to wait another week for this episode, but I’m sure it will be more than worth it. Check out the video clip below for a brief teaser of what to expect. And look for next new episode of Arrow with more Slade, the Suicide Squad and tons of action, on Wednesday, March 19th at 8pm EST on The CW.
