Oliver Queen's decision to train a new set of vigilantes in the premiere episode of Arrow season 5 will introduce some new faces to the viewers in the upcoming sequel. Episode 2 is titled The Recruits and it will air tonight, October 12, at 8 pm EST on The CW network.
The official synopsis of the episode reads: Oliver's new recruits for Team Arrow are Curtis, Wild Dog and Evelyn Sharp. 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.
Cast member Rick Gonzalez revealed that his character Rene Ramirez a.k.a Wild Dog will think that Curtis Holt a.k.a Mister Terrific and Evelyn Crawford Sharp are weaklings. According to him, the character does not pay much respect to his team members.
"In his mind, he feels as though it should probably just be him and Green Arrow taking care of things. But you know, that's also kind of cool that we get to see during the season the respect build for the team and how these guys come together," TV Guide quoted the 27-year-old actor as saying.
The Reaper star also stated that The CW series will address the reason for his character to consider being trained under Stephen Amell's character in episode 2. "We'll also touch upon how Wild Dog does have a respect for Green Arrow," he added.
