It’s just one more day until the premiere of Arrow’s fifth season. EW spoke with executive producer and co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim about whats ahead for Oliver and co. as Prometheus is set to drive Oliver back to killing.
We’re dramatizing Oliver’s desire to evolve, but this concept of legacy keeps threatening to pull him back to the early days,” says EP Marc Guggenheim, teasing that there will be callbacks to season 1 as Oliver faces off against a mysterious new villain, Prometheus, whom he “bears a measure of responsibility for the creation of.
Hopefully season five restores the show to the greatness that was season one and two. While we know the flashbacks are set in Russia this season, Oliver has to make his way back to the island by the finale to sync up with the show’s pilot episode.
We also still have yet to see island Oliver set Slades original mask on a pike so theres a possibility the two could duel once more on Lian Yu.

Arrow season 5 premieres tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
