Prometheus Sends Oliver to his Breaking Point

If you thought Prometheus was going to become less impressive now that his identity has been revealed, Arrow has a surprise for you. It doesn't take long into "Checkmate," the first scene really, for Oliver to catch up with us and learn that Prometheus is Adrian Chase.

Is 'Arrow' Season 5 the Best Season Yet?

In season 2 The CW's Arrow surged with popularity. The show was on a creative high after a strong season 1 finale, and season 2 told the story of an epic struggle between Oliver and his friend-to-foe Deathstroke AKA Slade Wilson.
