'Arrow' Tackles Gun Violence on Tonight's Episode - Sneak Peek!

Arrow is going a little off book with an episode that’s tackling real world issues tonight — gun violence.

“Gun violence felt like the right topic because of its topicality, but also because of the level of gun violence that is on Arrow,” EP Marc Guggenheim shared ahead of the show.

He adds, “We could have done an episode on abortion, but that’s not really where the show lives. So gun violence really felt like the right thing to tackle.”

In the episode called “Spectre of the Gun”, after a traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene, Oliver must deal with the perpetrator behind the attack and realizes the best way to do so is as Mayor Queen instead of the Green Arrow.

Marc added about the slightly different episode you’ll see tonight: “It’s the fifth season. We’ve hopefully earned the freedom to — in 23 episodes of television, you can have 22 pieces of candy and one episode of vegetables. … I would never want people to watch under false pretenses, so I would probably be very upfront about the fact that it’s not a typical Arrow episode.”

Arrow airs TONIGHT, February 15th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
