Who is Rene really, and what made him want to become Wild Dog? We’ve come to know a little bit about this character on “Arrow” so far this season, whether it be his passions, his mouth, or his penchant for getting either himself or other members of the team in trouble. What’s a little bit more unclear at the moment is what precisely led to the character putting on the famous mask in the first place.
This now leads us into the next new episode, which carries with it the title of “Spectre of the Gun.” You’re going to have a story play out further in the present, but at the same time some rare flashbacks for someone other than Oliver.
Synopsis – “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.”
Given that “tensions are running high,” you do have to think that there’s an issue that comes about as a result of what happens out at City Hall that starts to put people on edge. They’re already under a lot of stress as it is given everything with Prometheus, and we have to think that one of the last things that they’d want to do is do something further to cause further turmoil. Therefore, you have to figure that whether is going to be coming up will be reasonably serious; it could be fun for us as a viewer, but tough for the team simultaneously.
