‘Arrow’ “Broken Dolls” Sneak Peek: Oliver Teams Up Against Seriously Creepy New Big Bad
Though last week’s ‘Arrow‘ installment “Identity” may have left Oliver Queen in a pretty pickle, it’s nothing against the creep factor of his latest Starling City foe. The CW has released the first official clip from this week’s “Broken Dolls,” the first to star ‘The Killing‘ vet Bex Taylor-Klaus as DC character Sin, though we’ll have to hope she doesn’t end up with a fate quite as icky as our new villain’s methodology.
Though the latest Starling City baddie has yet to grace us with a more catchy name, the first new ‘Arrow’ clip of “Broken Dolls” sees Oliver and Detective Officer Lance together again as a villain from Lance’s past embalms his latest victim, making her a living, or at least formerly living doll. We’ve seen some unhinged ‘Arrow’ villains before, but seriously, eww.
The CW’s take on Wednesday’s “Broken Dolls”:
OFFICER LANCE’S PAST PUTS LAUREL IN DANGER — Lance (Paul Blackthorne) learns a criminal named Barton Mathis (guest star Michael Eklund), whom he put away years ago, broke out of prison during the quake and is back to torturing and murdering women. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) offers herself as bait so Arrow (Stephen Amell), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lance can catch this villain, but the plan goes awry. Furious, Mathis kidnaps Laurel (Katie Cassidy) in retaliation and plans to murder her while Lance watches. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) and Oliver are stunned when District Attorney Adam Donner (guest star Dylan Bruce) seeks the death penalty for Moira (Susanna Thompson). Oliver asks Roy (Colton Haynes) to help him find the Canary (Caity Lotz).
