The winter finale of Arrow Season 5 concluded with the return of Dinah Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) who greeted Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) as he walked into the team’s lair. A couple of weeks ago, a new trailer revealed that this Laurel isn’t the same one who the team lost in Season 4 at the hands of Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough). As we are one week away from the return, The CW released the extended trailer today featuring pieces of new footage for the tenth episode.
The mid-season premiere of Season 5 is titled “Who Are You? as Oliver processes the Prometheus aftermath as well as the return of Laurel. Could this title possibly be referring to this new version of Laurel or perhaps the introduction of some new character?
Only time will tell when the show returns in just one week from now. Catch the footage below for “Who Are You?” as well as the official episode description from the network.
