Oliver has his hands full with that "being mayor" thing, but soon he will have to confront his past head one with a return to the island that created him.
While it's not yet known under what pretenses he'll be returning, executive producer Marc Guggenheim gave EW a vague hint about how Ollie will get there.
"I can tease that it will either be by boat or plane," executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells me. "I can also tease he won't be going back alone."
Joking aside, that last part is rather noteworthy. Oliver's team has changed a great deal in the last year or so, so having one of his new compatriates alongside him would equal some entertaining television. Granted, they could always have it be someone like Thea or Diggle, but also noteworthy is that Guggenheim didn't say it was just one person. Who knows, maybe the entire team gets to see the island in person?
Oliver (Stephen Amell) faces his biggest challenge yet as mayor. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) continues down her dark path with Helix.
After Vigilante attacks Oliver while he's acting as the mayor, Diggle (David Ramsey) leads the team in a mission to stop Vigilante once and for all.
Michael Schultz directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Ben Sokolowski.
