This past week's 'Arrow' installment "City of Blood" saw the first shots fired in Slade's war on Oliver Queen, but this coming Wednesday's "Streets of Fire" will shift into '24'-style real-time for all out chaos. The full set of photos from next week's hour see Team 'Arrow' racing around the city to combat Mirakuru thugs, while even Laurel seems to take up the bow, so see for yourself!
We're not altogether surprised to see that Oliver and Laurel make it out of the rubble from last week's cliffhanger just fine, though we're curious as to what could lead Laurel to pick up Oliver's bow. Elsewhere, Thea has her own of Slade's thugs to deal with, but the promo above makes it appear as if a familiar face will return to help her out, and follow up with a surprising proposal.
And we were right! Check out what The CW had to say of next week's penultimate season 2 installment "Streets of Fire":
MALCOLM MERLYN RETURNS — Oliver (Stephen Amell) rallies his team as Slade’s (Manu Bennett) soldiers attack the city. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) gets a call from S.T.A.R. Labs with game-changing news and Thea (Willa Holland) comes face-to-face with her father – Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman).
Only two episodes remain in an exceptionally strong season, but will 'Arrow' hit its final bullseyes? Check out the "Streets of Fire" photos below, and give us your predictions for the final two installments in the comments!
