Exclusive First Look: The CW's Arrow Lets Loose With Some Killer Moves

The set-up: Billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (played by Stephen Amell), not long after being rescued as a castaway, is abducted by a pair of masked goons. They ask: Did Oliver’s father survive the shipwreck as well? If so, did he share any secrets with his son?

Oliver, though, believes actions speak louder than words, so in response to the interrogation the man also known as Arrow promptly makes his point. Press PLAY and witness the world of hurt unloaded upon his would-be captors. (P.S. What if I told you this wasn’t even the pilot’s most badass one-man assault?)
