Today, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has shared the title, writers, and director of the fourth episode of Season 5 of Arrow.

The episode is titled, "Penance," and it was written by Brian Ford Sullivan and Oscar Balderrama and is being directed by Dermott Downs. Sullivan has previously worked on a dozen episodes of Arrow and Balderrama has written half a dozen. In 2015, Downs directed 2 episodes of Arrow ("The Offer," "The Return").

The title could suggest that Oliver could either go through a voluntary self-punishment as an expression of repentance or confess his sins to seek absolution.

Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle (David Ramsey) back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy (Willa Holland), Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) – but they're no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow's public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.

Based on the characters from DC, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti ("The Flash," "Supergirl"), Marc Guggenheim ("Eli Stone," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters"), Andrew Kreisberg ("The Flash," "Supergirl"), Wendy Mericle ("Desperate Housewives," "Eli Stone") and Sarah Schechter ("Supergirl," "Blindspot").

Arrow Season 5 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
