‘Arrow’: Season 5 Second Half Facts and Theories
Published on January 24th, 2017 | Updated on January 28th, 2017 | By FanFest
Finally the moment I have been waiting for since the middle of December, my Arrow returns tomorrow! After a month long winter-hiatus, the hit CW tv series will air at its regular time tomorrow (January 25th) evening. Before that happens, there are a few key things that I want to discuss about the Mid-Season Premiere.
Fact: Okay, so judging by the preview we are clearly well aware of the fact that it is not actually our Laurel that has come back from the dead. In the preview when it is said ‘that’s not our Laurel’ the doppelganger responds with ‘it’s about time somebody figured it out’. So if it is not Laurel, who could it possibly be?
Theory: Prometheus was somehow able to get in contact with Black Siren and bring her in on the evil plan. When Oliver confronts ‘Laurel’ in the Arrow Cave, (or Bunker… sorry Ollie), she is going to blame her ‘return’ due to the Flashpoint (cause by Barry Allen). Also, Black Siren was kept a secret from Team Arrow… so obviously they don’t even think it is a possibility.
Fact: Prometheus somehow managed to drive a wedge into Team Arrow by turning Evelyn Sharpe against them. Also, The mid season finale strongly hinted that Prometheus was the illegitimate son of Justin Claybourne, a despicable pharmaceutical CEO on Oliver’s list from Season 1.
Theory: While the evidence seems pretty stacked, I’m not 100% convinced. Prometheus is still unmasked, and knowing Arrow and knowing how intelligent and creative the writing staff can be… there is some sort of other mind game at play. Prometheus was able to break into the evidence locker and attempted to convince Captain Lance that he was the ‘throwing star’ killer. If that is the case, he could easily break into the police files and study up the cases against ‘The Arrow’ back in Season One. Prometheus is clearly intelligent, and could easily pretend to be someone that he is not. Until the mask comes off, I’m not 100% convinced. Why would someone from Season One just come into Oliver’s life now?
A huge fan theory is that Prometheus is none other than Tommy Merlyn, who has come back from the dead because of Flashpoint.
Fact: We all know that Oliver and his team have yet to apprehend him, or at least get him to stop his crime fighting ways.
Theory: Adrian Chase who is the new district attorney in Star City, has been suspected by fans as being the true ‘Vigilante’. I mean he does have some insane methods when it comes to finding out the truth. Adrian is also set on finding Detective Malone’s killing and to do whatever is necessary to figure out what happened to Billy. Hmm… I’m certainly suspicious. That’s not your every day talk for a District Attorney.
What do you think? Do you have any thoughts or theories about the second half of this season!?
