Rhodes first appeared in the third episode of “Arrow’s” fifth season, “A Matter of Trust,” in which his drug-dealing character was thrown into a vat of chemicals. This resulted in gaining accelerated healing powers and losing the ability to feel pain. After squaring off against the Green Arrow, Sampson was detained in the meta-human wing of Iron Heights. The new trailer reveals glimpses of Sampson battling against Team Arrow once again, and Oliver confronting Prometheus — otherwise known as Adrian Chase.
In the past few episodes, Chase has been in hiding after his secret identity as Prometheus was discovered by the public and the SCPD. In this week’s episode, “Underneath,” Chase struck back with an attack on Team Arrow’s bunker that left Oliver and Felicity trapped inside. The episode ended with a cliffhanger that involved Chase meeting Oliver’s son, William.
Starring Stephen Amell as the Emerald Archer, “Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, John Barrowman, Willa Holland and more.
