First Photos and Promo for Episode 2.05 of Arrow

You’ve heard their name whispered, and we even reported on it many months ago, and now the time has come, the League of Assassins is coming to Starling City in Arrow! The CW has released the first photos from the upcoming fifth episode of the new season, along with a promo. Titled simply “League of Assassins,” the episode is described as follows:

While Oliver tends to the Canary’s wounds, he tries to get her to talk about where she came from but she refuses.  However, after Oliver and the Canary are attacked at the Queen mansion by a trained killer from the League of Assassins, she confesses to how she’s connected with the nefarious group.  Meanwhile with Moira facing multiple counts of murder and conspiracy for her part in the destruction of The Glades, the Assistant District Attorney (guest star Dylan Bruce) offers her a choice – plead guilty now and avoid the death penalty or take your chances in court.  Thea begs her mother to fight for her life but Moira seems resolute about taking the offer.  Meanwhile, Oliver is furious with Laurel for joining the prosecution’s team on his mother’s case. 

Arrow airs on Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW.
