"The wheelchair is the beginning of Felicity's story this year, not the end of it," executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained to Entertainment Weekly. "I read online people saying, 'Oh, lighter season my ass.' I would argue that for 'Arrow,' this is lighter. What's particularly lighter is Felicity's reaction to her injury and the way she handles it."

According to the official episode description, "Diggle (David Ramsey) must learn to trust his brother Andy (guest star Eugene Byrd) when an enemy of their wartime past, an agent of the criminal organization Shadowspire, pays a visit to Star City. However, Diggle learns more than he bargained for about their shared time at war. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) has to learn a whole new way of life. Charlotte Brandstrom directed the episode."

Starring Stephen Amell, Neal McDonough, David Ramsey and Emily Bett Rickards, "Arrow" returns to The CW on Wednesday, January 20 at 8/7C.
