As the season premiere of Arrow’s sixth season creeps closer by the hour, there’s one question on every fan’s lips: What’s the fate of Team Arrow? The Emerald Archer’s support team was left in the lurch in the Season 5 finale, seemingly doomed to a die on the island of Lian Yu when the villain Prometheus wired the entire island to explode in the event of his death. Prometheus ended up dying by his own hand, and the island went up. So, what about Team Arrow?
A new promo video seemingly answers that question, though not completely. In the Season 5 finale, Oliver (Stephen Amell) tells Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) to hitch a ride on a boat at the other end of the island – Slade Wilson will know where it is. The show’s focus then snapped back to the showdown between Oliver and Prometheus. The promo video picks up from the perspective of Team Arrow and Slade.
Fans of Deathstroke will be pleased to find out that the villain turned heel at the last possible second, zipping off to find the boat on his own. While the plane Team Arrow had intended to flee the island on was revealed to have been irreparably damaged, the group decides that some shielding from the coming blasts is enough to chance hiding out inside. It seems as though not everyone made it, though, as David Ramsey’s John Diggle is seemingly consumed in the flames after stopping to help Felicity. Will he be able to make a superheroic leap into the shelter of the plane, or is he really gone for good?
