True to the episode’s name, the press release for “The Recruits”, the second episode of the fifth season, teases Oliver’s attempts to form a new team in the wake of his nighttime colleagues leaving in last season’s finale. Take a look below.
SUIT UP — Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) new recruits for Team Arrow are Curtis (Echo Kellum), Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gonzalez) and Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin). Unfortunately, the Green Arrow’s training methods prove to be too much for some of them to handle. Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Oliver’s initiation into the Bratva continues. James Bamford directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Beth Schwartz (#502).
