"Arrow" has added a lot of new characters in season five, one being the hockey-mask-wearing vigilante Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez). After half a season with the new defender of Star City, fans of the CW superhero drama will finally learn where Wild Dog comes from. A new synopsis released by the CW reveals that the mid-February episode "Spectre of the Gun" will target Wild Dog's origin story.
