Relationships Are Tested in Arrow’s “Trust But Verify”
Following on from our initial report on Stargate alum Ben Browder’s guest appearance on Arrow, now comes further details on “Trust but Verify,” the January 23rd episode of the CW’s new hit series.
The episode is set to see Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) at odds with each other when the next person on Arrow’s list turns out to be Diggle’s commanding officer and mentor from Afghanistan, Ted Gaynor (Browder).

Oliver suspects Ted is responsible for recent armored truck robberies, but Diggle defends Ted and takes a job at Ted’s security company to keep an eye on him. But when Oliver decides to make a move on Ted, he is quickly put at odds with Diggle.
Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) begins to suspect that Moira (Susanna Thompson) is having an affair with Malcolm (guest star John Barrowman).
And to round off the all over sense of awkwardness, Tommy (Colin Donnell) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) have an uncomfortable dinner with Malcolm.
