DEATHSTROKE, NYSSA AL GHUL, MERLYN AND DIGGER HARKNESS JOIN OLIVER’S BATTLE AGAINST PROMETHEUS – The battle between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) culminates in a final epic battle on Lian Yu. After recent events, Oliver decides to recruit a group of unlikely allies – Slade (guest star Manu Bennett), Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law), Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Digger Harkness (guest star Nick. E. Tarabay) – to defeat Chase. However, Chase has his own army – Black Siren (guest star Katie Cassidy), Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin) and Talia al Ghul (guest star Lexa Doig) – and the forces collide in an explosive season finale.
Cast on IMDb
Note: is it just me or IMDb just listed everyone (erratickly at times as it’s no way Julianna is rigth after Stephen on the Credits order) and some probably aren’t going to be there? If you have other info please tell me but Deadshot(?); Tatsu(?); Constantine(?); Mari(?); Roy(?); Rory(?); Anarky(?)… I’m almost certain Marc told us Rory wasn’t coming back this Season; Roy, we keep hoping but…I don’t think he was filming.
Wendy Mericle & Marc Guggenheim
They wrote several episodes together
3x04 - “The Magician”
3x18 - “Public Enemy”
4x01 - “Green Arrow”
4x23 - “Schism” (Teleplay)
5x01 - “Legacy” (Teleplay)
5x08 - “Invasion” (Teleplay)
Game changing episodes, out of the box episodes. But always good Olicity in the bakground moving forward.
Behind the screen pics
What we expect / hope
This Season of Arrow has not failed on giving us pumped,
fast paced, breath taking episodes and it looks like for Season Finale they are
taking us on a ride that is threatening to blows us out of the Earth
Firstly there’s so many great characters coming back to our
screens for this Finale there’s no way they can fail in providing for great
fights; second, Chase is a top node villain, right up there with Mirakuru
pumped Slade Wilson; third, we know we are losing people, wondering Who will
have us at the hedge of our seats (eventually right up until Season 6 premiere)
The fights are going to be epic and both the stills and the
promo show a few of them:
Nyssa vs Talia
The al-Ghul sisters having at it is a long wish for all of
We don’t know if this is a fight to the death or not, we
only know there is going to be a clear winner
Colar resposta do
Marc à minha pergunta
I hope they both survive.
Between the two Nyssa is the one more meaningful on the Arrowverse,
a “player” on both Arrow and Legends. Talia is more relevant in the comics, on
Batman, and a great foe for the showrunners to keep up their sleeve in case
Dinah vs BS
Dinah finally shows up and right when it’s needed. BS doppelganger
on Earth 1 wasn’t a Meta but her power fell on to someone else.
Don’t know if that is going to be a surprise to BS, hope it
is. Plus it looks like their Scream’s equal each other with one added advantage
for Dinah in future Season 6; Curtis gadget from 5x22 protects her from any
soundwave blocker. A pity it was left there on the ground at Dinah’s home
or did someone pick
it up? If so I’m really hoping it was Oliver.
This fight is not life and death because both characters
were confirmed for Season 6 and Marc even went to the extent to say they
wouldn’t kill KC character ever again.
So they will scream their heads off, in the end the Team that includes BS will lose, and Team Arrow that includes Dinah will win.
I know BS fits the plan of getting Olicity haters back to
watching and that’s really why that character is there. It also fits as the
main opponent to Dinah and to deepen Quentin arc that has been pretty basic
since he was successful in overcoming his drinking problem.
I really enjoyed the good “couple” / bad “couple” feels the
show gives us here
Yes, I do know Oliver and Nyssa are not really a couple,
they never could or would be, but Chase and BS wouldn’t be bad IMO. An Oliver/Felicity
fighting Chase/BS for Season 6 doesn’t sound that bad but I don’t think that’s
what they are going for here. Chase won’t be around for Season 6 (either he’s
dead, in jail or committed to an asylum) this looks to me like a Big Bad mantle
With BS as Big Bad of the Season Team Arrow needs Dinah,
she’s the one that holds the same kind of weapon, the one that can physically
counter act BS.
Oliver vs Chase
The fight we all been waiting for. I don’t know how many
steps Chase thinks he has on Oliver now, 10, 50… what I know is that I don’t think
Oliver is making the moves the way Chase expected. He definitely expected
Oliver to come to Lian Yu but I don’t think he was expecting the alliances
Oliver brings in with him.
Chase has been preparing this moment for years, his purpose
all along was having a broken Oliver so close to the hedge that a simple nudge
would send him spinning down the lowest pit and into a suicidal cycle, and
William is the last nudge and Chase is ready to give it.
But that’s not the Oliver that stands in front of him.
Plus Chase’s Team is nowhere near to aid him in anyway. They
are facing their one foes; and the people Chase was holding has leverage are
all free except for William.
But William is really the one that matters. To get to him
Oliver will have to go through Chase but Oliver values and knows something
Chase is probably not considering, his Team is as dead set as him in getting
William to safety. They would risk themselves for it; they won’t leave or run
for cover before William is safe. And the Team will get William, I have no
Besides Team Arrow (Felicity, Thea, Diggle, Curtis, Rene,
Dinah), the “volunteering” Malcolm Merlyn and Nyssa al-Ghul (since 5x22).
Oliver goes to the ARGUS prison on Lian Yu and recruits both Harkness and Slade
Wilson (not under Mirakuru influence anymore).
The “old times” when they were brothers. The “old times”
before the Mirakuru. Slade has a son, just like Oliver, he’s on board to fight
but what will he want in exchange? His freedom? More than that? Only that? Nothing?
He’s only shown in one still (like Rene) a hint that he may
be involved in scenes too interesting to be showing up in the promos.
If I can venture a guess I would say William’s rescue.
Other things happening
There’s no detail or images on how William is rescued but we
know someone is rescuing him. Samantha was taken too (hence she didn’t alert
Oliver before 5x22) so I have no doubt she’s on the group that goes to save
William. The other members of this group I think are: Thea, Felicity, Curtis,
Those are the ones that are not involved in any face off
with Team Prometheus members. I would add Diggle if it weren’t for the still
that shows him at Nyssa, Deathstroke and Dinah side. Same with Rene.
Oliver goes to face Team Prometheus and splits the Team. I
recall the two truths and a lie that listed a moment when Thea would not agree
with Oliver’s “orders”, I think this is true and that this is the moment when
Oliver doesn’t want Thea joining the part of the Team that
will face Team Prometheus, Thea does not agree. But Thea will accept, she’s
needed to save William
I look at the still’s and I have 3x23 feels all over. Oliver
is going off to face the dangerous, more personal, foe he ever faced; a foe
that has proven, time and time again, that he plays Oliver like a fiddle.
Oliver may not come back, but Felicity will make sure Prometheus won’t break
Oliver again with his mind games.
She’s the only one that can
reassure Oliver that Chase is wrong, Oliver is a good man, the proof being that
Felicity, the woman Oliver recognizes for her goodness, for her light, loves
him, she allways will. He made her life better just by being in it, not worse
like Chase argued, never worse.
Getting out of the Island
Are they getting out of the
Island in current timeline before the end of the episode? That’s a question we
can only guess the answer to. My guess is they will be on their way out of the
Island, eventualy at least part of the Team that got to William and William
himself will be on the way out. Remember the plane doesn’t have the capacity to
fly everyone at the sametime and I do think William and Samantha will take
precedence over everyone else, plus someone that can fly the plane (maybe
Curtis). Others will need to find another way out. Team Prometheus knows where
their transport in is so they are the ones with the advantage to use those. But
this is all a guessing game. What I do know is not all answers will be given
and the Season will end with a cliffhanger, the greatness of which we never
witnessed before, at least not on Arrow.
On the opposite end, on
Flashbacks, Oliver Queen manages to get to the boat Anatoly got him and he’s
off the Island. Somewhere along the line there will be a last face off between
him and Kovar. A parallel to Oliver vs Chase. Both fights will probably share
the time slot episode wise keeping us jumping from one to the other in a
incredibly pumped moment where Arrow will have the oportunity to once again
show us how different the Oliver that left the Island 5 years ago is from the
Oliver that is at the Island in current time (hope I don’t get disappointed on
On flashbacks we are in to
face more terribly emotional scenes as the show is going to present us with
scenes they didn’t show on the pilot. I’m wishing for these scenes to be shown:
Moira, Thea, Tommy finding out Oliver had been found alive; Quentin finding out
Oliver is alive and is hope building on Sara survival only to be crushed all
Of course I know they are
going to show double L too. I’m not ready for this but it’s the final
end of Oliver and double L story.
I’m so very excited the episode is going to be so
pumped so very lit my head is already spinning. This is going to so so good
