Following Arrow‘s seventh season premiere last night, The CW has released the first promo for their DC superhero series’ upcoming second episode titled “The Longbow Hunters”, highlighting Oliver and Felicity’s separate efforts to hunt down Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), who is the reason why Oliver surrendered his Green Arrow identity. Episode 2 will air next week on October 22. Check out the video below!
The episode is directed by Laura Belsey with Jill Blankenship and Rebecca Bellotto co-writing the script. Its official synopsis is as follows:
“In order to track down Diaz from inside prison, Oliver realizes that will require aligning with an old enemy. Meanwhile, in Star City, Felicity’s attempts to root out Diaz are thwarted by Diggle, whose allegiance to ARGUS now requires him to keep civilians like her on the outs. Realizing that she can no longer rely on her old team or old methods, a clear-eyed Felicity resolves to find a new way to go after Diaz.”
