‘Arrow’ Preview: The Clock King Plans Oliver’s “Time of Death,” and the Lances Reunite
The CW’s ‘Arrow‘ will finally return from its Olympic slumber next Wednesday with the tick-tock of Oliver’s “Time of Death,” introducing ‘Prison Break’ baddie Robert Knepper as the infamous DC villain. Before the clock strikes however, we’ve got the full set of photos and a new preview for next week’s ‘Arrow’ return.
While we’ve seen plenty of photos of the villain himself, William Tockman (Knepper) has nothing on the terror of the Lance’s full family reunion, following Sara (Caity Lotz)’s big reveal from prior installment “Heir to the Demon.” Oliver attempts to smooth the transition, but knowing Laurel, the booze will be flowing heartily. Elsewhere, what’s got Felicity into such damning trouble with our DC villain?
Here’s what The CW had to say of next week’s “Time of Death”:
ROBERT KNEPPER AND ALEX KINGSTON GUEST STAR — Oliver (Stephen Amell) brings Sara (Caity Lotz) into the Arrow team. Watching Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) spar with Sara and talk old scars, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) starts to feel left out.
The team is investigating a villain named William Tockman, a.k.a. The Clock King (guest star Robert Knepper), who is a brilliant thief armed with technology that can open any bank vault in Starling City. After The Clock King infiltrates the computer systems in the lair, Felicity feels pressure to prove her worth. When she gets a lead on Tockman’s whereabouts, she heads out without the team, putting her in peril.
Meanwhile, Oliver throws Sara a welcome home party, but Laurel (Katie Cassidy) refuses to attend. After Lance (Paul Blackthrone) makes his case for a family dinner, Laurel acquiesces, but when Oliver shows up with Sara, she loses her temper on both of them.
No sign of Slade or Brother Blood in the photos below, but what say you? Will the Clock King be our best DC one-off villain yet? Preview ‘Arrow”s “Time of Death” above and below, and give us your predictions for the hour in the comments!
