‘Arrow’ 5×23 Photos & Synopsis: ‘Lian Yu’


Oliver must confront Lian Yu for one final time in this Wednesday’s season finale of Arrow.

The episode, aptly titled “Lian Yu,” features Oliver Queen’s return to Lian Yu and subsequent team-up with his former friend and enemy, Slade Wilson, after Adrian Chase and co. took Oliver’s friends and family.

These photos give us a look at what we can expect next Wednesday, including a potential Oliver and Felicity liplock, the returns of familiar faces, and many amazing team-ups as Oliver and Chase prepare for their final showdown and Oliver’s final time on Lian Yu.

Here’s the synopsis for “Lian Yu” (find the photos in the gallery above):

DEATHSTROKE, NYSSA AL GHUL, MERLYN AND DIGGER HARKNESS JOIN OLIVER’S BATTLE AGAINST PROMETHEUS — The battle between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) culminates in a final epic battle on Lian Yu.
