A new trailer for the first episode of Arrow Season 5 shows Oliver Queen paying tribute to the fallen Black Canary.
As mayor (or at least interim mayor — it’s hard to believe he’ll hold that job for long), Oliver unveils a bronze statue of Laurel Lance as Black Canary who was killed by Damien Darhk in Season 4.
The trailer also gives us our first glimpse of Chad L. Coleman as a powerful gangster declaring, “Green Arrow cannot be stopped unless we all work together.”
We also see a shot of John Diggle back in his army fatigues.
And then Oliver Queen (as mayor) gets kidnapped and beaten up.
Arrow Season 5 premieres Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 8pm EST on The CW.
