Team Arrow Returns to 'Purgatory' in New Photos

It's a full house on Lian Yu.

New photos from an upcoming episode of Arrow show the team on the deadly island facing Edward Fyers (Sebastian Dunn) -- who died in Season 1 - and his men. The photos also showcase the return of Yao Fei (Byron Mann), Oliver's (Stephen Amell) mentor, who died at Fyers' hand.

How Fyers and Yao Fei return to the series is still unclear. Showrunner Beth Schwartz has stated that, aside from the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" episode and Season 8, Episode 1 ("Starling City"), all of Season 8 takes place on Earth-1, so another trip to an alternate earth is out of the question. However, with Mia (Katherine McNamara) and her team traveling back in time, it's possible that The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) will bring Team Arrow back to where and when it all began for Oliver.

The photos come from the sixth episode of the eighth season, appropriately titled "Purgatory." It will air on Dec. 3 and will be the final episode before "Crisis on Infinite Earths" begins.
