‘Arrow’: Vigilante is Someone We’ve Already Met

While this season of Arrow focus has primarily been on the mystery of Prometheus (Josh Segarra), in addition to Oliver’s Bratva past; we can’t forget about someone else who is running around the streets of Star City. Vigilante is still out there, although he has been unseen since he attempted to face off Prometheus.

His location may currently be unknown, but one thing we do know for sure is that we’re not going to be unmasking him this season.

According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, that’s a mystery for Season 6.

“We know who it is, but we were kind of intrigued by the idea of having a mystery that led into the next season,” Guggenheim said at Paleyfest 2017. “We were excited at the prospect of just letting this play out for a little while longer, and it gives us something cool to do in Season 6.”

Well, even though it is a minor disappointment that we won’t be seeing who is behind that mask this season (or visor) we’re certainly stoked to look for some more clues as to who he really is. Especially now that we know he’s apparently a character we’re already familiar with.

 “As a general rule, I’m not a fan of mystery characters who when you take off the mask the audience goes, ‘What a minute, I’ve never seen that person before in my life,’” Guggenheim jokes. “I’m probably not spoiling anything by saying whoever’s underneath the Vigilante mask, you’ve seen that person before.”

All we really know about Vigilante is that he’s got no problem killing people he thinks deserve justice.

So far, we can rule out quite a few people based on who has been around every time vigilante has been; which includes Team Arrow, Lance, Adrian Chase (obviously), and Susan.

Although we have been told it is someone we have already met, it was never specificied which season… or which set the character will be coming from.

Hmmm… certainly something to think about!!

Who do you think Vigilante is?!
