How Prometheus will kill Vigilante? - and how Adrian can be both Vigilante and Prometheus?
Reblogging fro the morning crowd. This is a new post to make the connection to my old theories and how Prometheus will kill Vigilante. Please read to the end.
Talia Al Ghul, daughter of Ra’s, left the league to pursue her own life. She meets and marries Yao Fei. They have twin daughters Shado and Mei. One day Yao Fei goes missing and Shado goes to Lian Yu on a rescue mission to save her father. Yao Fei is shot in the head by Friars while he saves Oliver Shado and Slade. Later Sara shows up and Ivo shoots Shado because Oliver chose to save Sara. While Oliver is en-route to Hong Kong, Sara is found by Nyssa and the League of Assassins. Sara tells Nyssa her story; who probably lets Talia know. A year later Talia is called to Hong Kong after the Alpha Omega outbreak for the death of her other daughter Mei. She meets Masaeo and sends him to her father with the virus.
Talia decides to seek Oliver and get her revenge but she doesn’t want to just kill him she wants him to suffer so she decides to make him into a monster. She finds him in Russia and trains him and sends him in the right direction of his legacy. She then sits and waits for Oliver to be arrested. For him to self destruct.
Oliver comes back to Starling, starts to go through the list. Kills Claybourn. His son Adrian is devastated. Not only did he lose a father but he also lost a possible legacy and inheritance that his father never had a chance to bequeath to him. He is distraught and wants revenge on the Hood that killed his father. He erases his existence and sets on a path of vengeance.
In season one Oliver loses Tommy and any chances of reconciling with Laurel; he feels so guilty he runs back to the Island.
In season two, Sara comes to Starling; and so does Nyssa to follow her; Slade comes and Talia thinks; that Oliver’s sins have come to collect. Then later her own league come to assist him.
In season 3 Ra’s tries to recruit Oliver to be the heir; and Oliver kills Ra’s
In season 4 Oliver helps Nyssa disband the league and Talia watches Oliver battle an ex-league member and she hopes that Damian Darkh will eliminate him. Yet Oliver triumphs again as Green Arrow is declared hero; Oliver Queen is proclaimed mayor. Her original plan to let Oliver destroy himself has officially failed. Its time for a different plan!
Just like Talia found Oliver Queen, some time between 2012 and 2016 she recruits Adrian, he is probably lost just like Oliver was in Russia. She trains him and guides him to his legacy of avenging his father from the Hood. She trains him to be Prometheus
Talia also recruits Alena a girl mourning the death of her sister Brie Larvan the bug-eyed bandit; blaming all her problems on Felicity Smoak for not only sending Brie to prison, but also for denying her sister the chip that she needed to survive spinal cancer.
I am not sure about Billy Malone. He seems to be more effective in death than in life. But I do think she uses him either willingly or as innocent victim and throws him Felicity’s path in the summer of 2016.
I think Talia’s plans come into action the summer of 2016. She starts by trying to eliminate Oliver Queen’s support system. Thea and John had left the team voluntarily. Felicity was the only one left in the bunker with Oliver, so she starts with Felicity.
Talia effects a plan that alienates Felicity from Oliver causing her to close the door on them and start dating Malone. We have yet to find out about the plan in 5.19, an episode set in the midst of Felicity’s dark arc episodes of 18 to 20.
She also makes sure Adrian comes in to fill Laurel Lance’s vacancy as DA in the city; guaranteeing a position of closeness to Oliver and access to all files and SCPD evidence.
Then she lets Prometheus present himself, he starts to haunt the Green Arrow, kills an officer in the ACU, Malone gets promoted to the ACU; kills 4 innocents with anagrammed names. Oliver realises through Human Target that Billy is Felicity’s boyfriend Prometheus threatens Tobias Church to leave Oliver alone. But Tobias doesn’t. When Prometheus comes to kill Tobias; Tobias reveals that Oliver Queen is the Green Arrow. Up until that point Adrian knows that his enemy is Green Arrow, he doesn’t know it’s Oliver Queen. Talia does; but Chase doesn’t. At the moment, Adrian finds out that his long term enemy of Green Arrow is Oliver Queen.
Some time in 5.06, Adrian goes to Talia wanting to kill Oliver Queen and she refuses. Adrian is part of Talia’s team. As Prometheus, he can’t kill Oliver Queen because Talia would know that he disobeyed her orders. He has to find another way to try to kill Oliver outside of Talia’s long revenge plan. So he invents Vigilante.
In 5.07 Adrian dressed as Vigilante decides to present himself as a good guy who like the Green Arrow only attacks criminals; in the Vigilante persona he has a clean slate to seek justice on Oliver Queen and Green Arrow.
In 5.09 Adrian as Prometheus tells Green Arrow that he is a criminal and sets him up to kill Billy. John is arrested. Black Siren is taken by Prometheus and sent to spy on the team as Laurel Lance.
Later Adrian miraculously keeps John from being transferred and drops the hint about Walkers files at the NSA. Felicity is lead down the rabbit hole with Helix and Alena and John is released in debt to Adrian.
Everything Chase does in the persona of Prometheus is related to Talia’s plan.
Everything Chase does as Vigilante is related to his personal revenge.
In 5.10 we find out the Adrian covered up the coroner’s report to protect the city from massive panic.
In 5.14 after Oliver visits Adrian’s mother, a letter is sent to Pike from her city showing the missing report that Adrian hid. Later a news report lets it be known that it’s the Mayor’s office not the DA’s office that covered up the murder, while Oliver had told Pike that Adrian covered it up. Pike accepts GA’s admission through Oliver and lets the GA go.
Adrian is not happy; because Oliver is coming very close to figuring out his identity and Talia still sees no need to rush things. So in 15, Adrian suites up as Vigilante again to take out Oliver Queen as the mayor for failing the city and covering up the report.
Prometheus appears and kills Vigilante. When Vigilante is unmasked he is found to be Adrian Chase.
It would be later revealed that Talia dressed as Prometheus killed Adrian for going against her orders and inventing Vigilante.
This would explain why Prometheus has had the physique of a man from 5.01 through to 5.15; but might be revealed as Talia later.
