Arrow Episode 5×06 New Stills and Promo Trailers
Finding A Lost Dog
At the end of the previous episode of Arrow, we saw Wild Dog captured and being tortured by Tobias Church. Oliver and the team are coming up empty on their search for clues. Even with the resources of A.R.G.U.S., Lyla is unable to find Tobias or Wild Dog. Believing they’ve come to another dead end, Ragman and Artemis are about to leave another abandoned warehouse until they find a puddle of blood. Felicity tracks down their missing comrade, only to tell the two recruits she promised to only give Oliver the information. As Rene is digging his own grave, Church reveals his plan to use Star City’s waterways as a hub for all illegal trafficking. Just as Rene is stabbed in the back, the Green Arrow takes down Church’s men. Tobias flees, as Ollie wonders why it was such an easy rescue. Rene reveals Church was able to torture him into revealing Oliver’s secret identity.
Mayor Oliver Queen is a Human Target
With Tobias knowing the mayor is the Green Arrow, the team is put on high alert. In order to protect Mayor Ollie during the day, Diggle suggests an old acquaintance of his could arrive to help within 24 hours. In the meantime, Oliver must deal with the politics of his position. Instead of convincing a councilman to vote for the re-zoning ordinance of affordable housing, his family is called out as ‘crony capitalists’ who took advantage 25 years ago of the same ordinance. Meanwhile, Tobias hires someone to protect him and kill the mayor. We then see Mayor Queen getting a reporter off his back, Tobias’ second encounter with Prometheus, Diggle reaching out to Rene, and then Oliver and Thea exposing the councilman for being a ‘crony capitalist’. As the mayor and Thea walk out of City Hall, Oliver is seen shot dead by the hired assassin. During the announcement of his death, Oliver and the team are watching the report from their HQ. We’re finally introduced to Christopher Chance, the Human Target, as a disguised Mayor Queen.
How to Trap a Church
Tobias falls for the trap by meeting with his Trust of criminals. Oliver and his team ambush the meeting and take out all his henchmen. Before Wild Dog can take his revenge on Church, Tobias escapes only to be confronted by the Green Arrow. In typical bad-ass style, he takes down Church in a one-on-one fight. Before knocking him out, Tobias warns him of Prometheus. We go to a flashback of Oliver in Russia being setup to die, but saved by the Human Target without his knowledge. Cutting back to the present, a corrupt man from the mayor’s detail presents the sleazy reporter with a picture of Oliver in Russia from five years ago. The episode ends with Prometheus taking out every cop on a prisoner transfer to get to Tobias Church. Church reveals the Green Arrow’s identity and is killed immediately with a throwing star.

SINS OF THE FATHER
When Prometheus ups his killing spree, Oliver (Stephen Amell) searches for connections between the victims. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) discover the victims have a mysterious link to Oliver’s past and this new secret could upend his new team. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) has a heart-to-heart with Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and Felicity considers telling Malone (guest star Tyler Ritter) the truth about her work.
