New photos from Arrow's upcoming final season tease a tense standoff between Oliver and Diggle and The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett).
The photos come from episode tw2, which is titled "Welcome to Hong Kong." With the final season looking to revisit many of the events of the show, it's no surprise that Oliver will be returning to Hong Kong, which was the main setting for the flashbacks in Season 3.
Furthermore, episode 5 is titled "Prochnost," the Russian word for "durability," which could allude to a return to the Motherland for Oliver as well. The series has traveled there numerous times, and it was the main focus of the flashbacks in Season 5.
Aside from revisiting past locations, Arrow will also be welcoming past characters for the series' swan song, including Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson), Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell), Adrian "Prometheus" Chase (Josh Segarra) and Rila Fukushima (Tatsu Yamashiro).
Returning Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary, Katie Cassidy as Black Siren, Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak, Joseph David-Jones as Connor Hawke and Ben Lewis as William Clayton-Queen.
