Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen will be forced to forge some uneasy alliances with the likes of Malcolm Merlyn, Nyssa al Ghul, Digger Harkness and fan-favorite Slade Wilson in Arrow‘s season finale.
Titled “Lian Yu,” the episode will not only bring to an end the fifth season but also see Oliver’s long journey from shipwrecked party boy to hardened crime-fighter come full circle, as the action will culminate on the island where Oliver’s story began.
Lian Yu — DEATHSTROKE, NYSSA AL GHUL, MERLYN AND DIGGER HARKNESS JOIN OLIVER’S BATTLE AGAINST PROMETHEUS — The battle between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) culminates in a final epic battle on Lian Yu.

E. Tarabay) — to defeat Chase.

Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Marc Guggenheim (#523). Original airdate 5/24/2017.
