The CW's Arrow Season 3's 17th episode is entitled "The Offer" and it airs on Wednesday, March 18, at its appointed 8:00-9:00 pm time slot. Directed by Dermott Downs from a script written by Beth Schwartz and Brian Ford Sullivan, the network's official synopsis says that Oliver (Stephen Amell) still weighed down by his last meeting with Ra's al Ghul (guest star Matt Nable), returns home to find a new villain and his crew have started terrorizing Starling City - Michael Amar AKA Murmur (guest star Adrian Glynn McMorran), a man whose mouth has been sewn shut.

Murmur, in the DC comic book mythology, was once a respected surgeon who after succumbing to madness started a killing spree to stop the voices inside his head. Because of his dementia, he cut out his own tongue and sewed his mouth shut to stop himself from uncontrollably blurting out whatever comes to mind. He incriminated himself once and as a consequence was sentenced to death by lethal injection. Unfortunately, he failed to die because of certain abnormalities in his bloodstream. Murmur is a master at creating and designing virus and toxins.

Also in next week's episode, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) bond over their issues with their fathers and Nyssa make Laurel an offer. Thea (Willa Holland) is forced to come to terms with her father after Oliver brings Malcom (John Barrowman) to the loft to recover. And Lance (Paul Blackthorne) shuts out both Laurel and the Arrow. As seen last week, Ra's al Ghul not only spared Oliver's life. He also told him that he wanted him to become his successor. Moreover, in one of the promo photos for the upcoming episode show, Merlyn is seen back Safely in his home, meaning Ra's a Ghul may have also consented to letting Oliver have him.

Perhaps this may have been much too unsettling for Nyssa. Not only was she to be denied her birthright to be head of the League of Assassins as her father's successor, she was also deprived of the chance to avenge and get justice for her lover Sara's murder. Law in an interview with TV Line about the character she portrays on Arrow said: "She's no longer heir to the demon. She no longer has her lover, who I'm sure she was thinking about keeping around forever. She's essentially lost everything. For the first time in her life, she is vulnerable and she feels weak and useless; it's very jarring. You're going to see Nyssa trying to figure out who she is and what she stands for now." But in Laurel, she will find an ally, teasing, "The two of them may have more in common than Nyssa originally thought."
