Arrow Season 5, Episode 10 Synopsis: “Who Are You?”


Arrow’s first post-winter hiatus episode has Oliver broken from his last encounter with Prometheus.

This week, Arrow returns from its mid-season hiatus. Before the show went on its winter break, Prometheus put Oliver through a mental ringer—destroying the Emerald Archer by playing a twisted a game which resulted in the death of Detective Malone.

So, on Wednesday, don’t be surprised if you see Felicity also brooding and acting a bit like ole Ollie. She too will be bent on revenge and will venture a bit to the dark side. It’s always the chipper ones who have the darkest of thoughts.

It sounds like Team Arrow will need a pick-me-up—which will come in the form of Laurel Lance. Remember her? The last time we saw Laurel, she was in a Dominator-created fantasy world. And before that, she was … well … dying as a result of her confrontation with Damien Darhk.

From the preview, most fans are betting on this Laurel to be the one from Earth-2—Black Siren. Hey, the trailer shows her using her famous Canary Cry without the aid of technology. The only logical explanation would be Black Siren, who famously used that in The Flash. Besides, Arrow’s producers have repetitively promised that this Earth’s Laurel is really dead.

How far will Felicity go to exact her revenge? And how will the dynamic between Oliver and Felicity change after Malone’s death—even if poor Oliver was manipulated into killing him? Here’s the official synopsis:

“Who Are You?”

"OLIVER WANTS JUSTICE; FELICITY WANTS REVENGE — Worried that Prometheus is right and he is truly a killer at heart, Oliver (Stephen Amell) looks for any ray of hope and finds it in what seems to be the miraculous return of Laurel Lance (guest star Katie Cassidy). However, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), still reeling from Detective Malone’s murder, is bent on revenge – she wants to stop Prometheus at any cost. While in prison, Diggle (David Ramsey) fights for his life."
