Arrow season 5 spoilers hint at the team’s increased efforts to hunt down Prometheus. Thus, would they finally find out who is behind the mask?
The mid-season premiere of Arrow is only weeks away. Although it would seem fans can expect a lot of action ahead based on the first photos shared by CW from the superhero drama series.
Indeed, early spoilers for episode 10 already hinted at Laurel’s return. However, her comeback seems to bring something more sinister. Hence, possibly adding more interest to the plot.
Green Arrow Meets Prometheus Head-on
Yet the return of Laurel Lance is not the only concern of when the series returns. According to Comic Book, Felicity Smoak is still in shock from the death of Detective Billy Malone. However, this will not stop her from seeking justice. Hence, her resolve to find Prometheus.
Moreover, it would appear she shares the same idea as the team. Preview images for the January 25 return episode titled Who Are You? tease Oliver’s alter ego comes face to face with the masked serial killer. Yet it remains unknown if their meeting ultimately leads to the anticipated unmasking.
Indeed, curiosity is rife as to who is behind the Prometheus mask. For S.C. O’Donnell of Movie Pilot, it could be since the character’s introduction has helped boost the superhero drama series to its former glory.
Another factor O’Donnell cites is the entry of other characters into the Arrowverse. Yet the writer teases it could get more interesting with the arrival of Talia al Ghul. Thus, it prompts speculation at a possible connection between her and Prometheus.
As it turns out, showrunner Wendy Mericle teased about this early on. Although her general statement about the character seems to lead to more questions than answers.
“Among new faces, Talia al Ghul plays a ‘crucial part’ in unraveling the Prometheus mystery,” Mericle previously told TVLine. However, given her background, it is uncertain what her motive would be. Thus, would she be a friend or foe of the team? Moreover, what does she know about Prometheus’ identity and did she work with him at some point in time?
