The CW’s “Arrow” offers a shout-out to the events of tonight’s “The Flash” finale, “The Man in the Yellow Suit,” before revealing a surprising twist into the investigation of Sara Lance’s killer.
Arrow series developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg. It is based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, a costumed crime-fighter created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp. It premiered in North America on The CW on October 10, 2012, with international broadcasting taking place in late 2012. Primarily filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the series follows billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, portrayed by Stephen Amell, who, after five years of being stranded on a hostile island, returns home to fight crime and corruption as a secret vigilante whose weapon of choice is a bow and arrow. Unlike in the comic books, Queen does not initially go by the alias “Green Arrow“.
Titled “The Climb,” the episode marks the ninth second season episode of the hit DC Comics series and is officially described as follows:
“Nyssa returns to Starling City and tells Oliver that her father, Ra’s al Ghul has given Oliver 48 hours to find Sara’s killer or the League of Assassins will start killing the citizens of Starling City. Laurel is stunned when her father delivers a very special Christmas gift – her mother, Dinah. Meanwhile, Ray tries to make amends with Felicity and Oliver sets a meeting with Ra’s al Ghul.”
Guest starring Katrina Law as Nyssa and Matt Nable as Ra’s al Ghul, “The Climb” is directed by Thor Freudenthal and written by Jake Coburn and Keto Shimizu. It is set to air this Wednesday, December 10th at 8:00pm ET/PT on The CW.
