Oliver's Past Will Come Back to Haunt Him in 'Arrow' Season 5!

Check out this new scoop on the upcoming fifth season of Arrow!

It sounds like Oliver (Stephen Amell) will be dealing with his past a lot.

“[Season 5] deals with legacy, it deals with the past, and the dramatic irony, the dramatic tension, that we get from it is Oliver’s always been a guy — admittedly, not the most self aware dude ever — but he’s always been someone who is trying to move forward. He’s always trying to evolve,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told IGN.com. “The challenge for Oliver this year is how do you evolve and move forward when the past keeps grabbing at you, trying to pull you back.”

On where Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) stand, he said, “We always play the true five month gap between the season finale and season premiere. And every time we’ve talked about Oliver and Felicity should talk about their feelings, we realized, wow, that feels really wrong because they’ve had five months to talk about their feelings. Any mature couple, they’ve had that conversation.”

Arrow is set to return on October 5.

    for someone ” who is trying to move forward. Hes always trying to evolve” both the character and show have gotten damned stagnant. how is he moving forward when he’s been making the same mistakes for four years now? I assume dealing with the past means even more excrutiatingly boring flashbacks. if it wasn’t for needing context for crossover episodes, I’d dump this series. I DVR but I can go months without watching it. it’s a struggle now. s5 is my last I think

    I’m excited for this season’s flashbacks.. we’ve waited out 2 years of awful flashbacks to finally get to Bratva and see how Oliver became the killer he was in S1. But present day doesn’t sound too exciting with the spoilers we’ve gotten so far. When they said “back to basics” I was hoping that would mean back to original team arrow and the core trio of Oliver/Digg/Felicity that made the show so great in the first place. I hope we get back to that by season’s end!
