Arrow Episode 5×05 Title & Synopsis Revealed
The fifth episode of Arrow will bring Christopher Chance aka the Human Target to Star City. His story is like a mixture of Batman and Heroes for Hire. His father was murdered in front of him by a hitman, because he couldn’t pay a loan shark. Dying, his father told young Christopher to do something better than he had done with his life. Becoming fearless, he vowed never to let another innocent person die like his father. Chance compulsively studied martial arts and weaponry to become a private detective and bodyguard for hire. As a master of disguise, he uses himself as a human target for clients by taking on their identity and replacing them when he feels they’re in danger. Wil Traval, best known for roles as Will Simpson in Jessica Jones and Sheriff of Nottingham in Once Upon A Time, will play Christopher Cross aka the Human Target.
