Arrow: Oliver Will Work With Unexpected Allies to Take Down Prometheus

As he proved in "Disbanded," Oliver Queen is ready to go to great length in order to put a stop to Prometheus' reign of terror. According to executive producer Wendy Mericle, Oliver's bold streak will continue right up to the "Arrow" Season 5 finale, which will find our hero teaming up with some unexpected allies.

“The alliances are going to be very surprising,” Mericle told Entertainment Weekly. “You’re not going to believe who Oliver is working with to defeat Prometheus. It’s going to be really emotional. It’s going to be all about Oliver’s family, but not the family we’re thinking of right now. It’s going to end in a giant explosion, but not where we think it’s going to end, and the emotional punch is going to be bigger than the actual physical part of the bombs going off.”

Seeing as Team Arrow's alliances will be "very surprising," there's a good chance he could team up with one of the show's various villains. A good candidate seems to be Black Siren, Laurel Lance's Earth-2 doppelganger, seeing as Katie Cassidy will be a series regular in Season 6. Other than that, "Arrow" has provided a long list of characters that could fall under this category, from the vengeful Talia al Ghul to Vigilante to the Bratva, though the latter seems unlikely considering their fallout in "Disbanded."

Meanwhile, star Stephen Amell has been hyping up the upcoming Season 5 finale on his Twitter, writing,

Our season finale is sensational.

How do you end one journey and begin another? Bravo @ARROWwriters. Bravo indeed.
