We've known for a few months now that "Arrow's" flashback storyline will continue into season five, this time moving lead character Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) to Russia for the next chapter of his origin story. Now Amell has posted a pic from "Arrow's" upcoming season to Twitter, and it shows more of what's in store for the archer as he journeys to a new country.
Here's your S5 poster.

Judging by Oliver Queen's shaggy hairstyle, this looks like it's part of the flashback storyline as opposed to the present day storyline (wherein Oliver sports a much cleaner, shorter hairstyle). We first learned that "Arrow" will journey to Russia in April, when executive producer Wendy Mericle teased that "it's a very good possibility that we'll finally find out how Oliver got that Bratva tattoo and how he learned to speak Russian."
Starring Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards and David Ramsey, "Arrow" will return to The CW on Wednesday, October 5 at 8 pm EST.
