New ARROW ‘Time Of Death’ Preview; Plus David Ramsey Teases The SUICIDE SQUAD’s Future
Arrow is just about to return to our TVs after a three week break (that felt a lot longer than three weeks) due to the Olympics. When the show comes back on February 26th with an episode titled Time of Death we’ll see Oliver and his newly expanded crew going up against the Clock King. While Robert Knepper‘s villain will give Arrow and Black Canary a run for their money with his well timed plans, it’s Felicity that will be challenged the most. The CW has released a new producer’s preview of the episode offering up a lot of new footage as well as an overview of what exactly we can expect to see from executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
When the show starts back up, it’s back until the end of the season. Before we get to the big and explosive finale though, we’ll get to see Amanda Waller‘s Suicide Squad. The March 19th episode, aptly titled Suicide Squad, will be all about Diggle. In a recent fan Q&A with TV Line, Diggle actor David Ramsey teased the highly-anticipated episode:
Is there anything David Ramsey can share about the “Suicide Squad” episode? -Jen
Episode 16, set to air March 19, is “all me, all day, 24 hours – a whole hour of Diggle!” Ramsey reports with a laugh. In addition to flashing back to a Diggle/Lila/Afghanistan adventure that Oliver’s No. 1 related during Season 1, “There’s a bigger story with the Suicide Squad and … their involvement perhaps with Team Arrow in the future. There’s a lot of set-up for the season finale…. Big stuff.”
It’s interesting that he says there’s a bigger story at play that could be touched on again in the future. While we all expected it, this seems to confirm that the Suicide Squad won’t be just a one-off appearance. Whoever ends up surviving the episode might well pop back up in the future to cause a little more damage. What do you think about the latest goings on in the world of Arrow?
