DISCLAIMER: This article includes a major spoiler from Arrow Season 5, Episode 15 “Fighting Fire With Fire” which aired tonight on The CW
Arrow Season 5 introduced one of the most challenging new antagonists that Oliver Queen has been up against as the villainous Prometheus entered Star City with the intention to destroy the Emerald Archer. Since the season started, all that was known about the mystery archer was that Oliver was partly responsible in creating this villain.
Based on the evidence that the team discovered in the mid-season finale, Prometheus was possibly the son of Justin Clayborne, a criminal that Oliver killed in Season 1. However, that wasn’t the case at all. In tonight’s episode, it was revealed that Prometheus was none other than Adrian Chase. During a scene with the Vigilante, he gets attacked by Prometheus and when knocked down from the building, the archer takes off his mask and we see that’s none other than Adrian.
While Adrian was initially believed to be The Vigilante, which he is in the comic books, it seems that the show is taking a different direction – who is The Vigilante? Only time will tell.
“Fighting Fire with Fire” – (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)
