~This Article Contains Spoilers From Season 4 of Arrow~
With the season premiere less than a month away, The CW has released the official synopsis for “Legacy,” the premiere episode of season 5 of Arrow. It’s sad to see that the new Team Arrow disbanded as quickly as it formed but it’s very likely this won’t last, seeing as how one of the unwritten rules of superhero teams is that none of them ever stay disbanded.
Although Arrow will eventually submit to this rule, Team Arrow will be without most of its core members for the foreseeable future, making Oliver Queen a solo act once more. Though with some convincing from Felicity Smoak, the Green Arrow decides to assemble a new team of masked heroes to aid him in his crusade.
Check out the official synopsis below:
NEW BEGINNINGS — After Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) death and the departures of both Diggle (David Ramsey) and Thea (Willa Holland) from Team Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) takes to the streets solo to protect Star City’s citizens as the Green Arrow. With Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) guiding him from the bunker, Oliver is forced to deal with a city that has become overrun with both criminals and a slew of new (and painfully inexperienced) vigilantes. Watching Oliver try to balance his jobs as both the mayor and also the protector of Star City, Felicity suggests he form a new team, but Oliver resists. However, when a deadly new criminal, Tobias Church (guest star Chad L. Coleman), enters the picture, Oliver realizes the best thing for the city might be a new team of superheroes. Meanwhile, the flashbacks take us to Russia where Oliver faces off against the Bratva.
Arrow returns on October 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
