CW has released the official synopsis for the premiere of the second half of Arrow’s season three, ”Left Behind”.
We might have, but Oliver Queen may have not. CW prepares for the return of Arrow on January by releasing an official synopsis for the premiere of the second half for the third season. The plot focuses on Team Arrow coping with Oliver’s disappearance.
We all know he has to return at some point, whether he returns or not is not the question. Question is how the writers will make him return, in a way that does not seem forced or full of plotholes. The return of Oliver must not only be a reintroduction of the protagonist but also a jumping-on point that becomes a catalyst for future and deeper storylines while tying loose ends from the first half of the season.
The synopsis for ”Left Behind” reads as follows:
“Left Behind” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, LV) (HDTV)
THE TEAM DEALS WITH OLIVER’S DISAPPEARANCE — In the aftermath of Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) fight with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Arsenal (Colton Haynes) continue to protect the city in the Arrow’s absence. However, after three days without hearing from Oliver, they begin to fear the worst may have happened to their friend. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) refuses to believe that Oliver could be dead until Merlyn (John Barrowman) pays the team a surprise visit. Thea (Willa Holland) suspects there is something more behind Oliver’s disappearance and asks Merlyn for a favor. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) tests a part of his new suit and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) takes up the mantle of the Black Canary. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Erik Oleson (#310). Original airdate 1/21/2015.
The second half of the season will see the debut of Ray Palmer’s A.T.O.M. Laurel Lance will also star for the first time as Black Canary, donning the mantle of her fallen sister and beginning the first chapter in what the writers have called the ”Canary Trilogy”.
Arrow will return on January 21st.
