A couple of weeks ago, we gave your first look at Arrow’s Suicide Squad, now we want to give you even more. CW has just released a much more detailed synopsis of the “Suicide Squad” episode, and even included a whole bunch of awesome pictures from the episode. The most interesting part about them though is it looks like Oliver himself might be part of the Squad, or at least working for Waller in some capacity. This episode follows “The Promise”, so look for it to also have plenty of fallout from the Oliver/Deathstroke “situation”. Either way, “Suicide Squad” looks like it’s shaping up to be another great episode full of plenty DC universe fun. Take a look and let us know what you think!

There are some potential spoilers for “The Promise” and “Suicide Squad” ahead….You’ve Been Warned…

Official Synopsis: 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

Suicide Squad is airing on Wednesday, March 19 (8:00-9:00pm ET) on The CW.
