Arrow Season 3 returns tonight (October 15) with its second episode titled 'Sara'. The episode will delve deeper into Sara's murder. Tommy Merlyn will be back in a flashback scene and a new villain from the comic, Komodo, will emerge.

According to the episode's official synopsis; Lance (Paul Blackthorne) calls the Arrow (Stephen Amell) when another archer appears in town and starts skewering businessmen. Diggle (David Ramsey) uses A.R.G.U.S. to find the archer's identity; he is a man named Simon Lacroix (guest star Matt Ward), who goes by the codename Komodo. However, the team hits a rough patch with the mission and gets help from a surprising source — Laurel (Katie Cassidy).

Meanwhile, Oliver begins to worry that he hasn't heard from Thea (Willa Holland), which forces Roy (Colton Haynes) to tell him the truth about why she left town. Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) pursues Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). In the flashback, Maseo (guest star Karl Yune) tells Oliver that Amanda Waller has ordered his first kill. As Oliver looks down the scope of the rifle, he sees the target is his best friend, Tommy (guest star Colin Donnell). Despite her promise to her sister, Laurel debates sharing a secret about Sara (Caity Lotz) with Lance.

Also, Laurel is all set to become the Black Canary Arrow fans know from the comics.

In the wake of Sara's death, Laurel will set her sights on getting revenge, hoping to uncover the identity of the mystery man who killed her sister, reports Entertainment Weekly.

"The Green Arrow needs Black Canary. It's always been the two of them. I think comic book fans will be happy. Season 3 is a great journey for Laurel," said actress Katie Cassidy.

Arrow Season 3 episode 2 'Sara' airs tonight (Wednesday, October 15) at 8.00 pm ET on The CW.
