The Arrow midwinter finale may not have answered the big question about Prometheus, but producers still threw one major curveball with those closing moments.

Apart from its 100th episode, Arrow Season 5 promises to bring fans to another major milestone for the series; completing the five-year flashback cycle that defined the early days. As such, we can cross one scene off the Season 5 finale next year, as a scene from the pilot will have Oliver in tatters once again.
The CW’s fourway crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow had enough material for five episodes, let alone three, so a few scenes understandably fell by the wayside. Among them, producers reveal two Supergirl-Legends connections we may explore in the future, and a deeper dive into the mysterious Dominators.
