Looks like Ollie’s going to have to face a baddie that has somewhat similar taste in fashion, at least in the hide-your-face-in-the-hoodie-type fashion. Oh, and we suppose the bows and arrow are similar, too. So, let’s just call him the Dark Archer for now, shall we?
This episode will be the final episode for 2012, and will air on December 12th. Here’s the synopsis:
Oliver (Stephen Amell) discovers that after he and his father went missing, Moira (Susanna Thompson) and Thea (Willa Holland) stopped celebrating Christmas. Determined to make up for lost time and restore a sense of normalcy to the Queen household, Oliver decides to throw the family a Christmas party. Meanwhile, Tommy (Colin Donnell) asks Laurel (Katie Cassidy) to spend Christmas with him but she points out that Christmas was also her sister Sara’s birthday and she needs to be with her father (Paul Blackthorne). Tommy suggests changing things up might be the best way for everyone to heal but Laurel isn’t sure her father is ready for that. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) tells Oliver someone is murdering the people on his father’s list with arrows, which sends Oliver off to face his toughest adversary yet.
Sounds like it’s going to be another thrilling episode, along with a dash of “feels” to boot. As it should, since the next episode after that will not air until 4 weeks later. Gives us fans time to brood over the situation, which I’m sure will keep us either wanting to give Ollie a big hug, or to yell at him to stop spray-painting his face.
