In a report from TV Line today, “Arrow” Producer Wendy Mericle teased some small things that we can expect to see in season five, mainly in regards to the flashbacks.
Here is what she said in the article over at TV Line:
In regards to Oliver being the new Mayor of Star City next season, she says “City Hall, that institution, is crucial to our series.”
For the flashbacks we’ll see in season five, she says “It’s a very good possibility that we’ll finally find out how he got that Bratva tattoo and how he learned to speak Russian.”
“When Oliver says, ‘No one can know my secret’ and he kills that guy in the pilot, we’re going to get some insight into that.”
TV Line is also reporting that a new vigilante will make his way to Star City next season, who they describe as a “cocksure/reckless ex-Marine turned vigilante,” who will be a separate character from the new main threat that was reported earlier.
Look out for more details on these new characters and season five as a whole in the next few months.
