Season 5 has been a serious rollercoaster for Arrow fans, and according to the show’s leading man, it’s just going to get cooler and more intense.
Without giving away too much, Wednesday’s episode of Arrow (which also served as the mid-season finale) found Oliver Queen and his friends confronted with the return — or possible return — of someone we never thought we’d see again. While watching, we were in total shock and so was Stephen Amell who plays the hero in green clothing.
While we won’t go into who returned and what it could mean, Amell revealed during a Facebook Live chat via TV Line, that “We delve into that when we come back” in 2017.
Okay, so we will get more juice about a certain someone and their reappearance come January, but there is even more to look forward to in the second half of the season, so get excited.
“This was the first script in a long time where I read what happened in Act V and it legitimately freaked me out,” Amell said about what’s about to happen to Oliver and the Arrow team next.
“Ultimately where we go in [episodes] 10, 11, 12, 13, is a very cool development,” he added. “And it certainly raises the stakes for Mr. Prometheus.”
We need more details! Who’s in cahoots with Mr. Prometheus? Can Oliver get back to his good side? Can it be January already?
Arrow returns with all-new episodes on January 25, 2017.
