These new official images that The CW has released from next week’s episode of Arrow, “What We Leave Behind”, spotlight Oliver and Prometheus finally engaging each other toe-to-toe. But what’s really interesting about these is that in the images from the episode’s flashback scenes, we see Oliver in his season 1 costume which may mean that we’re closing in on the reveal of Prometheus’ true identity.
It’s been well established that Prometheus has ties of some sort to Oliver personal past, but in this 101st episode of Arrow, I think we may finally be able to deduce Prometheus’ identity by the clues that we’re given here. That being said here’s our theory. Factor together that we know Prometheus is from Oliver’s personal past because he knows about his father’s journal and his mission during the first season. He’s also a skilled archer and possesses expert fighting abilities. now, here’s where we go out on a limb. We see flashback images from season 1 and the title of this episode could point to Prometheus being one of two people. Ready? We think it could be either Tommy Merlyn or Oliver himself, both from the past due to (drum roll please), changes made from the Flashpoint Paradox created by Barry Allen over at The Flash. Yes, we know it’s a stretch but we’re feeling pretty confident that we’re at least close in our theory in some areas to one degree or another.
