Arrow is back for another season on The CW, but it’s missing a very important player – Oliver (Stephen Amell).

The CW released the official episode description today for “City of Heroes” which kicks off the new season along with Oliver’s journey from vigilante to hero. But before he can take the next step in his mission, Dig (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) have to find him.

After the tragic events of the season one finale, Oliver has ditched Starling City for Lian Yu, but his teammates convince him to return home where he faces many new challenges.

Check out the full description provided by The CW as well as the episode stills and then hit the comments and let us know what you’re looking forward to seeing in season two.

“FROM VIGILANTE TO HERO — Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) travel to Lian Yu in search of Oliver (Stephen Amell) who left Starling City after The Undertaking. Convinced to return home, Oliver finds that things are in worse shape than he thought.

Isabel Rochev (guest star Summer Glau) is preparing a hostile takeover of Queen Consolidated, Thea (Willa Holland) refuses to visit Moira (Susanna Thompson) in jail, Roy (Colton Haynes) is trying to fill the void left by the Arrow’s absence, and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is working with the District Attorney’s office to take down the vigilante. 

Meanwhile, flashbacks to the island show Slade (Manu Bennett), Shado (guest star Celina Jade) and Oliver in a desperate situation. John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim.”

Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8/7c on The CW.
