Laurel Lance aka Black Canary had a tragic death in the previous season of 'Arrow' and thus, Star City will pay respect to the character by erecting a statute in honor of the costumed crime-fighter in the fifth season.
The new teaser shows Oliver Queen aka Arrow, looking at the statue. According to TVLine, Arrow will be sinking into the feeling about his friend's sacrifice and that he will know that things are going to be different now.
But the question which every fan wants to know is, what exactly Laurel (Katie Cassidy) whispered to Oliver (Stephen Amell) before her death? According to reports, Cassidy is going to return in season five to reveal what she told him.
"It is both actually, and you'll find out what it was in [the Oct. 5 premiere]," teases the EP Wendy Mericle.
The highlighted part on the Arrow teaser was that of the presence of Chad L. Coleman of The Wire and The Walking Dead fame, who will seemingly play a villain to pull down Green Arrow. Amell also hinted that the other villains in the forthcoming series will be the result of Oliver's actions in season 1.
Also joining the original cast are Dolph Lundgren as a Big Bad in the Russia flashbacks, Popular alum Carly Pope, Chicago P.D.'s Josh Segarra in the series-regular role of D.A. Adrian Chase aka Vigilante, Reaper's Rick Gonzalez as the DC Comics character Wild Dog, Tyler Ritter. Blindspot's Joe Dinicol will be seen as Rory Regan aka the vigilante Ragman and former WWE grappler Cody Rhodes will feature in a guest role.
Fans can catch all the action of Arrow season 5 starting from Wednesday October 5 on The CW.
