Arrow Wild DogThe CW released the official description today for the thirteenth episode of Arrow Season 5 titled “Spectre Of The Gun”. Based on the synopsis, this will be a big episode for Rene a.k.a. Wild Dog who is one of the newest members on Team Arrow this season. So instead of flashbacks in Russia, it looks like we will be getting the origin story of how Rene became Wild Dog.

“A traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene (Rick Gonzalez) about his family. Flashbacks reveal how Rene went from simple family man to a hero named Wild Dog. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) 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. Tensions run high in the Arrow bunker. Kristin Windell directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim.”

Check out the extended trailer for the next week’s episode titled “Second Chances” which will feature Lexa Doig as DC Comics’ Talia Al Ghul and Juliana Harkavay as the new recurring character Tina Boland.
