Arrow 5×13 Preview – “Spectre of the Gun”
Episode Summary: A traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene (Rick Gonzalez) about his family. Flashbacks reveal how Rene went from simple family man to a hero named Wild Dog. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) must deal with the perpetrator behind the attack and realizes the best way to do so is as Mayor Queen instead of the Green Arrow. Tensions run high in the Arrow bunker. Kristin Windell directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim (513). Original airdate 2/15/2017.
We’re finally going to learn Rene’s backstory! I’m sure it’s terribly traumatic and tragic. Dealing with painful memories is never easy, and it seems he’ll have the double pain of feeling powerless to stop the attacker as Wild Dog.I’m sure it’ll be difficult for the viewers to watch Rene lose his family on the road to becoming a vigilant.
Meanwhile, it seems Oliver will be faced with a tough decision. Dare I guess that he’ll hang up the Arrow suit for good so that he can focus on being mayor? Well, let’s be real. Even if Oliver does decide to hang up his suit, it won’t be for long. But tension in the Arrow Cave means that Oliver is going to try doing something the rest of the team doesn’t approve of. Whatever that may be, it’ll be done with good intentions. That’s something, right?
