The stills for the upcoming Arrow episode 1×18 “Salvation” have been released and feature Colton Haynes and guest star Alex Kingston.
Both Colton Haynes and Alex Kingston have only appeared in one episode so far, and both very briefly. They’ll both be very present in this episode and the prior episode “The Huntress Returns”, which airs next week.
Yesterday it was announced that Colton Haynes was promoted to series regular for Arrow season 2. We don’t have much to judge him on yet, but we’ll get a good look in the coming weeks.
Here’s the synopsis:
OLIVER MUST SAVE ROY HARPER FROM A MURDERER — An angry resident of The Glades who calls himself “The Savior” (guest star Christopher Redman) embarks on a kidnapping and killing spree to punish those he believes have wronged the residents of his neighborhood. To make things worse, he broadcasts these murders online and claims he was inspired by Arrow’s (Stephen Amell) vigilantism. Oliver is horrified by this statement and vows to stop “The Savior,” but his manhunt in intensified after Thea (Willa Holland) comes to him in tears and tells him Roy (guest star Colton Haynes) has been kidnapped. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is surprised when her father (Paul Blackthorne) starts to believe her mother’s (guest star Alex Kingston) claim that Sara is still alive. Meanwhile, Malcom (John Barrowman) tells Moira (Susanna Thompson) to find the person responsible for his attempted murder. David Ramsey and Colin Donnell also star. Nick Copus directed the episode written by Drew Z. Greenberg & Wendy Mericle (#118).
