It’s vigilante-on-Vigilante action in “Fighting With Fire,” the next episode of “Arrow.” The episode will find Oliver Queen — the mayor of Star City and alter-ego of the Green Arrow — in Vigilante’s vengeful crosshairs. A new set of photos show Queen and his team dealing with the fallout from one of Vigilante’s attacks, both politically and as vigilantes.
“Fighting Fire with Fire” sees Vigilante attacking Mayor Queen directly. Queen (Stephen Amell) must respond both as mayor and the Green Arrow, with the help of John Diggle (David Ramsey) and his team. While Diggle works to track down Vigilante and end his reign of terror once and for all, Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) continues her dark work with Helix, the secret hacker group run out of Star City.
Vigilante’s handiwork first appeared in a Season 5 episode titled “Vigilante,” in which the character made a name for himself by dumping the bodies of two criminals outside the Star City Police Department. Since then, Vigilante and Arrow have been at odds with each other’s methods; Arrow considers Vigilante’s lethal tactics a step too far, while Vigilante believes Arrow’s nonlethal tactics are not enough.
Several characters in the DC Comics canon have operated under the name Vigilante, such as a Western-themed hero who first appeared in “Action Comics” #42 in 1941, but “Arrow’s” Vigilante most closely resembles the villain’s latest incarnation. The latest Vigilante debuted in “Nightwing” Vol. 2 #133 in 2007 and began his bloody crime fighting spree when Batman disappeared for a time.
According to the official episode synopsis,
Oliver (Stephen Amell) faces his biggest challenge yet as mayor. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) continues down her dark path with Helix. After Vigilante attacks Oliver while he’s acting as the mayor, Diggle (David Ramsey) leads the team in a mission to stop Vigilante once and for all. Michael Schultz directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Ben Sokolowski (#515). Original airdate 3/1/2017.
Airing on the CW on Wednesday, March 1, the “Arrow” episode ““Fighting Fire with Fire” stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance and Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance.
