Oliver Queen will have a lot on his plate when Arrow returns later this year, and now we have our first look at what Star City will look like in season five.
Oliver is not only the city's protector, he's also its Mayor, and the time split between the two positions will be a heavy focus all throughout the new season. Olliver is coming to grips with the power and the limitations that the office holds, and it will take some adjustment to come to terms with the fact that he can't shoot an arrow at every problem he encounters as mayor.
We also catch a glimpse at the new makeup of Team Arrow, as at the end of season four it had seen better days. With Diggle's departure from the team and Black Canary's death, the only two left standing were Oliver and Felicity, who have drafted some help in the form of Echo Kellum, otherwise known as Mister Terrific.
They'll need all the help they can get as they take on a new vigilante, one who has a history with Oliver, and a true reason to hold a grudge. In fact, you could say he or she only exists because of Oliver, and that will play a major role throughout the season.
Combined with the return of Madison McLaughlin's Artemis, and new addition Cody Rhodes as a yet unnamed character, things will be quite busy in the Arrowverse this year. Not to mention the mystery of what Laurel told Oliver in her final moments, which is the biggest question mark leading into next season.
Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 5th.
