Mistrust and collusion divided Team Arrow in Season 6’s midseason finale, but a new synopsis for the series’ return teases the trials and tribulations of Oliver, Felicity and Diggle as they press forward in their fight against Cayden James and Black Siren.
The midseason premiere will see the new, leaner Team Arrow discover one of James’ well-kept secrets. As the leader of the enigmatic Helix hacker group, James lives in a world where information, more so than might, is a premium. If Team Arrow’s latest discovery is really that juicy, it could spell the beginning of the end for James.
“OLIVER DISCOVERS A SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT CAYDEN JAMES — Despite losing half his team, Oliver (Stephen Amell) remains confident that he, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (David Ramsey) can stop Cayden James (guest star Michael Emerson) and Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). However, when he discovers one of Cayden’s secrets, he decides to team up with an unlikely ally. Meanwhile, Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) spends time with Vince (guest star Johann Urb). James Bamford directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Emilio Ortega Aldrich (#610). Original airdate 1/18/2018."
Starring Stephen Amell as the Emerald Archer, Arrow will return Thursday, Jan. 18 at 9pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, Willa Holland and more.
