'Arrow' Season 8 Episode 5 promo teases an action-packed tribute to Season 5 with Oliver and his kids heading to Russia
A promo video for the upcoming episode shows Oliver and his daughter Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara) going to a Russian fight club to meet a certain general who can get them the plutonium they need to build a weapon capable of taking down the Monitor
With 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' drawing closer, Oliver Queen / Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) is busy trying to prepare for the battles to come.
In 'Arrow' Season 8 Episode 4 'Present Tense', Oliver enlists the help of Curtis Holt / Mr. Terrific (Echo Kellum) to build a weapon that can take out the Monitor / Mar Novu (LaMonica Garrett) and unfortunately, Oliver's going to need to make a special trip to get the materials Curtis needs.
In Episode 5 'Prochnost', Oliver returns to Russia in what will probably be a tribute to Season 5 of the show, when the flashbacks showed Oliver going up against the Bratva in Russia.
A promo video for the upcoming episode shows Oliver and his daughter Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara) going to a Russian fight club to meet a certain general who can get them the plutonium they need to build the weapon.
We should be getting some pretty intense fight scenes this episode considering Oliver's previous experiences with Russian gangsters and Mia's past as a cage fighter.
Of course, Oliver doesn't know about Mia's old career as the undefeated fighting champion Blackstar so he'll probably still think he needs to protect his daughter, which might lead to some complications.
Seeing as this episode will most likely be a tribute to Season 5, we'll probably see the return of some of Oliver's old Bratva connections. We will also probably be seeing what has become of the legacy of Konstantin Kovar (Dolph Lundgren).
And it wouldn't be too surprising if the general that Oliver is going to meet turns out to be associated with the late Kovar in some way.
