After going totally nuclear and sparking a war in the streets of Star City during last week’s episode, the CW’s “Arrow” seems like it will slow things down in Season 4, episode 14. Titled “Code of Silence,” the newest episode of the hit superhero show will pit Team Arrow against a new group of criminals looking to take over their city.
According to a teaser trailer for the upcoming episode, posted below, a group known as The Demolition Team blows into town and starts wreaking havoc on the city and its current mayoral front-runner, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). During last week’s episode it was revealed that the principal villain of this season, Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), is letting his wife run against Oliver in the mayoral campaign, which means taking out her competition through lethal force isn’t just an option for the bad guy, it’s a likelihood. However, that won’t be too easy considering Queen is the secret vigilante, The Green Arrow.
Despite having the element of surprise on his side, the hero still needs to deal with the civilians that are inevitably drawn to the case, namely Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and his new girlfriend, Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) mother, Donna Smoak (Charlotte Ross). In addition, according to the episode’s official TV Guide synopsis, Oliver’s biggest secret may finally be revealed.
“Oliver and team uncover HIVE’s plan to take out Team Arrow once and for all. With HIVE’s next attack imminent, Lance wonders if Donna is safer without him in her life,” it reads. “Meanwhile, with the wedding fast approaching, Oliver begins to feel guilty that he hasn’t told Felicity about his son.”
Any mention of Oliver’s newly-discovered son should make fans tense after last week’s chilling reveal. When Oliver tricked Malcolm Merlyn into giving up control of the League of Assassins, the villain vowed revenge. His first step was to inform Darhk about the boy’s existence in Central City. Now, with Oliver debating whether or not he can tell his fiancée about the whole situation, dark forces could be poised to make the whole conversation a moot point.
Fans will just have to tune into “Arrow” Season 4, episode 14 on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST on the CW to see how it all shakes out.
