New ARROW ‘Suicide Squad’ Clip; Plus Another Harley Quinn Cameo Teaser


harley quinn bannerThis week’s episode of Arrow is the highly-anticipated John Diggle-centric episode that introduces us to the Suicide Squad. Diggle (David Ramswey) and his ex Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson) get recruited for a very special mission by Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson). Little does Diggle know that the team for the mission includes some of The Arrow‘s biggest villains as well as his own arch-enemy, Deadshot. The second clip for the episode, as well as another teaser about the possibly Harley Quinn cameo, has surfaced.

USA Today had the second full-length clip from tomorrow night’s episode. Diggle and Lyla are being briefed on the situation at A.R.G.U.S. HQ. The mission ties in directly to Diggle‘s past, which we will see more of in Diggle flashbacks that will take the place of the usual Island flashbacks.

More importantly, the big cameo we’ve all been speculating about gains a little more steam. Toward the end of USA Today‘s write up, they point out:

As much as Arrow producers love to subvert comic-book fans’ expectations, they also enjoy acknowledging that lore and introducing it to the uninitiated. Wednesday’s episode has an “Easter egg” related to ’80s Suicide Squad writer John Ostrander, plus a blockbuster of a cameo.

Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim goes on to say that “comic book fans in the audience will lose their mind. We get a chance to bring these characters to life out of the pages of the comic and onto the screen, but the nature of the show requires us to do it in a way that’s unique and hopefully unexpected.” It might not be completely unexpected since the first promo for the episode had people thinking Harley Quinn may be popping up in the episode, but it will definitely be unique. We’ve been on top of the whole Harley Quinn speculation and whether or not that is indeed the character Cassidy Alexa will be playing (read that here). We only have one more day until we find out. What do you think about the new clip? Do you think Harley Quinn is the big cameo Guggenheim is teasing?
