When “Arrow” season five debuts in just a few short weeks, audiences will finally see how Oliver became a Russian Bratva captain. His connections to Russia have been teased since the show’s first season, and season five’s flashbacks will exclusively deal with this chapter in Oliver’s life.
While the premiere episode, titled “Legacy,” will show how Oliver made his way to Russia, episode two — titled “Recruits” — will depict his initiation into the Russian mafia. In the present day story of “Recruits,” Oliver’s new team won’t be handling their superhero training very well. It’s likely that the ep will include some excellent training montages for both Oliver in Russia and his trainees in the new Arrow cave, especially since stunt director James Bamford directed this episode.
ARROW “RECRUITS” (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, LV) SUIT UP — Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) new recruits for Team Arrow are Curtis (Echo Kellum), Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gonzalez) and Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin). Unfortunately, the Green Arrow’s training methods prove to be too much for some of them to handle. Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Oliver’s initiation into the Bratva continues. Directed by James Bamford, written by Speed Weed & Beth Schwartz. Original airdate 10/12/2016.
“Arrow” season five premieres on The CW Wednesday, October 5.
