With Arrow currently on a break in the US due to the Winter Olympic – although it is set for its mid-season return next week in the UK – the details of the Clock King’s debut have surfaced, as well as some images from that upcoming episode. A familiar name from the DC comic book world, the 14th episode of this current second season sees Robert Knepper appear as the character.
The official word for the episode, titled Time of Death, reads:
“Oliver brings Sara into the Arrow team. Watching Oliver and Diggle spar with Sara and talk old scars, Felicity starts to feel left out. The team is investigating a villain named William Tockman, aka The Clock King (guest star Robert Knepper), who is a brilliant thief armed with technology that can open any bank vault in Starling City. After The Clock King infiltrates the computer systems in the lair, Felicity feels pressure to prove her worth. When she gets a lead on Tockman’s whereabouts, she heads out without the team, putting her in peril. Meanwhile, Oliver throws Sara a welcome home party, but Laurel refuses to attend. After Lance makes his case for a family dinner, Laurel acquiesces, but when Oliver shows up with Sara, she loses her temper on both of them.”
Time of Death is directed by Nick Copus and written by Wendy Mericle and Beth Schwartz. It airs on The CW on 26th February.
