Ra’s Al Ghul is back! Oh, my! Get your sneak peek into tonight’s episode of Arrow airing on The CW at 8/7c.
Part B of the third season of Arrow so far has been a wild ride. Oliver (Stephen Amell) was left for dead by Ra’s Al Ghul (Matt Nable) and the gang of Diggle (David Ramsey), Roy/Arsenal (Colton Haynes), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) had to keep the criminals at bay in his departure. Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) trying to overcome the murder of her sister Sara (Caity Lotz) took to becoming a badass and new Starling City vigilante Black Canary. As Black Canary, Laurel joined forces with Diggle, Roy, and Felicity attempted to take down criminal mastermind, Danny ‘Brick’ Brickwell (Vinnie Jones). In the end, they couldn’t do it on their own and the help of the Glades residences, the return of Oliver/Arrow, and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) hellbent on seeking revenge for the murder of his wife by Brick, Brick was ousted out of the Glades.
With the removal of Brick all hasn’t been well in Starling City in the Arrow Cave. Oliver needs assistance so he can defeat Ra’s Al Ghul to keep his sister, Thea (Willa Holland), safe from harm. Therefore, Oliver enlisted Malcolm to help train him and by doing so damaged his relationship with Felicity.
Last week on Arrow, season 3, episode 14, “The Return” Malcolm sends Oliver and Thea to Lian Yu where they come to realize that Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) has escaped his ARGUS holding cell. “The Return” is filled with great fight scenes between the Queen siblings and Deathstroke, but the episode also provided us with flashbacks of when Oliver returned to Starling City, during his 5 year absence, to retrieve the Omega bio weapon with Maseo (Karl Yune), under the direction of Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson). In these flashbacks, we saw Laurel trying to assist her father, Quentin (Paul Blackthorne), to overcome his grief from the supposed death of Sara to Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell) trying to be friend to Thea who was in the midst of her disastrous spiral because she thought she lost both her father Robert (Jamey Sheridan) and her brother Oliver.
Tonight on Arrow, season 3, episode 15, “Nanda Parbat” that was directed by Gregory Smith with the story by Wendy Mericle and Ben Sokolowski and teleplay written by Ben Sokolowski and Erik Oleson, that guest stars Matt Nable, Katrina Law as Nyssa Al Ghul, and Marc Singer as General Matthew Shrieve,
Malcolm is captured by Ra’s al Ghul and taken to Nanda Parbat. Because of his love for Thea, Oliver considers saving Merlyn. Ray (Brandon Routh) is obsessed with finishing his Atom suit so he can save the city but Felicity fears he is heading down the same path as Oliver and tries to pull him out of the lab.

Now let’s get a further sneak peek into “Nanda Parba” with the below videos and promotional images. In the first video, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim gives us an inside look into the episode where we see Oliver making the decision to attempt to save Malcolm and out himself as being alive to Ra’s Al Ghul. In the second video, we get a clip from “Nanda Parba” that shows that Thea has spilled secrets so Malcolm can face justice. The videos are followed by promotional images that feature characters Oliver, Felicity, Ray, Ra’s Al Ghul, and John Diggle.
By the inside look, clip, and images, it appears Arrow, “Nanda Parbat” is going to be an intense and action-filled episode.
