'Arrow' Photo Preview: "Honor Thy Father"

Even though we’ve still got nine long days to go before the series premiere of CW’s “Arrow,” the network has released photos and the official episode description for the second episode, “Honor Thy Father.”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know by now that “Arrow” is the story of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a billionaire playboy, who returns to his hometown of Starling City after being stranded on an island for five years. Upon his return, Oliver takes up the vigilante persona of Arrow to bring justice to the streets of his city and to hunt down the people who have wronged him (Emily Thorne-style, except he’s got a bow and arrow).

[SPOILERS AHEAD]

ICYMI: ‘Arrow’ casts Kelly Hu as China White

From The CW: “KELLY HU GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS VILLAIN CHINA WHITE — Oliver (Amell) heads to the courthouse to get his death certificate repealed and is pleasantly surprised to run into Laurel (Katie Cassidy), who is there prosecuting Martin Somers (guest star Ty Olsson), a criminal with ties to the Chinese Triad. Oliver recognizes Martin’s name from his father’s book and sets his sights on taking him down. Martin orders the Triad to “take care of” Laurel so they send their top mercenary – China White (Hu) – after her, an act that culminates in a battle between Arrow and China White. Meanwhile, Moira (Susanna Thompson) and Walter (guest star Colin Salmon) ask Oliver to take over the company. Colin Donnell, Willa Holland, David Ramsey and Paul Blackthorne also star. David Barrett directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim and written by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim.”
