The Arrow episode “Spartan” airs April 22 on The CW, and the network has just released some official photos to promote it.
What’s most interesting, though, is the name of the character Ernie Hudson is playing in the episode, that we see on his uniform. Stewart? Could he possibly be related to John Diggle on Earth-90, where he’d be “John Stewart” on that world? It’s worth considering that this could be a Green Lantern Easter egg, and the official character description did reveal that General Stewart is from Diggle’s past.
Here’s the description; the photos follow below.
ERNIE HUDSON (“GHOSTBUSTERS”) GUEST STARS — After the Ninth Circle delivers a major setback for Team Arrow, Diggle (David Ramsey) reluctantly reaches out to a Four-Star General of the Defense Intelligence Agency (guest star Ernie Hudson) for help, despite unresolved tension from their past. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) discovers a piece of information that he believes will turn Emiko (Sea Shimooka) against the Ninth Circle. Alena (guest star Kacey Rohl) returns with an interesting proposal for Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). Avi Youabian directed the episode written by Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes (#719). Original airdate 4/22/2019.
