Arrow is finally returning tomorrow night as part of the 4-show crossover that is happening this week. The CW aired a new trailer for the eighth episode of Season 5 titled “Invasion!” which refers to the 4-show event between Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow where they take on DC Comics’ Dominators.
However, this episode of Arrow will also mark as the 100th episode of the series which will feature several familiar faces like Katie Cassidy, Susanna Thompson and Jamey Sheridan reprising the roles of Laurel Lance, Moira and Robert Queen, respectively. Legends of Tomorrow’s Caity Lotz, who plays Sara Lance/White Canary, is also appearing along with Deathstroke, although it remains to be seen whether or not Manu Bennett is under that mask.
You can check out the new trailer below along with the official description from The CW and promotional images – be aware of some potential spoilers.
