Prometheus is not yet done destroying Mayor Oliver Queen in Arrow season 5. In fact, he is just getting started.
Actor Josh Segarra (Adrian Chase) teased that there are more clashes between the Green Arrow/Oliver (Stephen Amell) and the villain in the upcoming episodes of The CW superhero series. The actor added Chase has bigger plans in mind on how he would take down Oliver.
In the most recent episode, it was revealed that Chase is Prometheus. He also kidnapped Oliver’s girlfriend Susan Williams (Carly Pope) at the end of the episode.
Chase has been working with Oliver since the latter got elected as Mayor of Star City. On why Chase did not kill Oliver whenever he had a chance, Segarra has an answer for that. He told Entertainment Weekly:
“That’s a cool little secret nugget that I get to keep inside. So what motivates him? I think you’re going to see that play out a little bit more. Chase is going to give a lot of clarity to that soon. That’s going to be a lot of fun to watch.”
So what is the Star City District Attorney’s endgame against Oliver? Segarra hinted that Chase would like to see Oliver’s world crumbling around him.
Meanwhile, executive producer Wendy Mericle offered some details on what Oliver and Felicity will face soon. In a video released by the CW, Mericle said Prometheus has the Green Arrow at checkmate on every single move. She said:
“There is nowhere to go. He can’t go and fight him as Green Arrow. He can’t fight him as the mayor. And he has also taken someone as a hostage. Someone Oliver cares about deeply and has effectively render him powerless in this situation.”
As for Felicity, her involvement with the hacker group Helix will go deeper as she tries to save Oliver and the team. Helix will refuse to help her unless she does something for them. The clip also gave fans the first glimpse of the group’s headquarters.
