As season five of "Arrow" gets closer and closer to its premiere date, more and more info about the new episodes is being revealed and teased. We already know Oliver Queen will take a different approach to mentoring, the show will focus way less on magic, and that this season will feature new villains and a Black Canary memorial. Now, another tease has come from series lead Stephen Amell, who teased that episode 97 will see him pulling triple duty.
Wrapped episode 97 last night. Most times I get to play two versions of Oliver. This time? Three. pic.twitter.com/D7ri72K235

In most episodes of "Arrow," Amell gets to play both the present and past versions of Oliver Queen, as his globe-hopping origin story unfolds alongside his modern day Arrow adventures. But something about episode 97 will, apparently, allow Amell to play a third version of Oliver Queen.
Some information about episode 97 has already been revealed; it's the fifth episode of the show's fifth season and will be titled "Human Target." It's likely that that episode will feature the character Human Target, who will be played by "Jessica Jones" alum Will Traval.
Starring Stephen Amell, Emily Bett-Rickards and David Ramsey, “Arrow” will return to The CW on Wednesday, October 5 at 8PM ET.
