ARROW S2 E16 Description Released; "Suicide Squad"

The CW have released a description for the sixteenth episode of season two of Arrow, and it sheds some light on both Oliver's (Stephen Amell) ongoing battle with Slade (Manu Bennett) and how exactly Diggle (David Ramsey) ends up heading up Amanda Waller's (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) "Suicide Squad"!

AMANDA WALLER SENDS THE SUICIDE SQUAD OUT ON THEIR FIRST MISSION — Following Slade’s (Manu Bennett) return and his promise to make good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) loved ones, Oliver focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with his former friend. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tries to help but, fearing for her safety, Oliver pushes her away. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. to stop a warlord (guest star Lee Majdoub) he knew from his time in Afghanistan. Always the solider, Diggle agrees to help. However, he’s not prepared when Amanda introduces him to the rest of the team – Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (guest star Sean Maher), all criminals he and Arrow helped put away. Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team and explains the world is a complicated place, but Diggle isn’t sure he agrees. When the mission takes a dangerous turn, Diggle is forced to make a difficult decision. Larry Teng directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Bryan Q. Miller.

JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:05 PM
And Kord becomes part of Wayne Industries.
kevberg - 2/26/2014, 6:06 PM
Bronze Wolverine...I mean Tiger. Looking at that looks nothing like Suicide Squad. they can do better.
jesse4u27 - 2/26/2014, 6:07 PM
that ending alone was awesome.
Nomis - 2/26/2014, 6:08 PM
I gotta agree with Kev about the look of this 'Suicide Squad".

It's very underwhelming.
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:12 PM
@ Nomis

I said that when the official pic was released, but keep in mind this is on CW so the budget is not very big.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/26/2014, 6:15 PM
underwhelming indeed or more like doo doo on a stick. ;)
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:16 PM
And Remy knows doo doo very well!
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:21 PM
@ Remy yet that pic looks a lot like this.......

Chekkarma - 2/26/2014, 6:22 PM
Totally fine with the line-up and look,got your sniper,explosives expert,hand-to-hand expert, and tactical expert...solid squad....looking forward to this episode.
Nomis - 2/26/2014, 6:22 PM
@ JoeMomma29 - Yeah, I'm hoping they flesh out the look for Bronze Tiger and Sharpnel closer to the comic look like how they doing with Deadshot or even better how good they did the DeathStroke uniform!
MarkJulian - 2/26/2014, 6:26 PM
Those aren't all the members :)
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:27 PM
@ Mark

Really??????? Please go into detail.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/26/2014, 6:28 PM
I want real comic characters on this show. I want real powers not guys in name only. Why is there less than 30 comments on this successful show. :(
Minotauro - 2/26/2014, 6:31 PM
@Remy - "I want real comic characters on this show"

Yea, like Agent's of S.H.I.T right?

30 comments = the total that actually like good comic book shows.
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:35 PM
@ Nomis

I am hoping they will evolve with better costumes as they go into season 3.
DimiPoint - 2/26/2014, 6:36 PM
I have no problem with the suicide squad cause its their first time teaming up but i believe the next we see them they'll look much better than this
redlion - 2/26/2014, 6:37 PM
@ JoeMomma

That's part of the problem though. The Suicide Squad shouldn't look like the AOS. The SS should be looking a bit more impressive than S.H.I.E.L.D agents.
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:39 PM

True but I have hope they will suit up in the upcoming episodes.
Nomis - 2/26/2014, 6:40 PM
@ MarkJulian - Why u say that? What. Do. You. Know?
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/26/2014, 6:41 PM
Let me help this thread get to 30 comments. Does the suicide squad shop at the swap meat. Where's the big shark and the tiger? ;)
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:42 PM
@ Remy

Oh boy.... do see there is two Arrow threads going on at the same time????
redlion - 2/26/2014, 6:42 PM
@ JoeMomma

I sure hope so. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt for right now.
JoeMomma29 - 2/26/2014, 6:44 PM
@ redlion

Hoping as well the show has not failed yet.
Ranger14 - 2/26/2014, 6:49 PM
You really can't compare the look of SHIELD agents to the look of the Suicide Squad. Apples and oranges. Regular agents versus villains, each with specific and intimidating looks. I think it is Shrapnel in the picture looking like "hey..look at me! what about me?" that really detracts from the feel of the squad. :-p
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/26/2014, 6:50 PM
Captain America is a well done movie. It's almost over on FX. Wish Arrow could connect with Batman vs. Eisenberg I mean superman. ;)
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/26/2014, 6:52 PM
There isn't a killer in that squad. They are all ready to go to the mall right now.
Chekkarma - 2/26/2014, 6:56 PM
@MJ.....will we be seeing the return of Grundy then or a totally new character??
Darktower - 2/26/2014, 7:07 PM
I think it Suicide squad ill get better in the future , its just too early to judge n start trolling nw! Any way GREAT SHOW TONIGHT !!
Jolllem - 2/26/2014, 7:10 PM
GliderMan - 2/26/2014, 7:11 PM
I could see this episode serving as an origin for a more accurate Shrapnel. But mark my words, it won't happen.
GliderMan - 2/26/2014, 7:12 PM
They really need more creative minds in these production teams
TheRealRemyLebeau - 2/26/2014, 7:14 PM
I agree @gliderman.
sinthegreat - 2/26/2014, 7:23 PM
doodoo on a stick...lmao
koolaidbag - 2/26/2014, 7:43 PM
To all the haters, this is their first mission. Once Diggle, and his girl leave the team, and Shrapnel either gets a suit or dies then we can get a more accurate suicide squad
