After finally finding out that Prometheus is, in fact, Adrian Chase, Arrow fans were forced to endure a two-week period of sweet agony waiting for the next episode to get here. And although we now have only six days to go until “Checkmate” arrives, some images from the following installment, “Kapiushon,” have made their way online.
Aside from Prometheus continuing his unrelenting torture of Oliver Queen, we’re offered confirmation by way of these photos that Dolph Lundgren will indeed be reprising his role as Konstantin Kovar in episode 5.17. Not only that, but it looks like Oliver will be confronting him in his proto-Arrow suit in the flashback scenes.
Speaking of said costume, one can’t help but notice that it’s very similar to the one he donned in the first season, so he owes much thanks to Talia al Ghul for providing such stylish threads. Still, it’s a little rough around the edges as Yao Fei’s hood is yet to be seamlessly interwoven. That aside, it looks sharper than some of the lower end costumes I’ve seen available online.
There’s not much else to go on, aside from Oliver talking to some woman, quite possibly about how he bears a passing resemblance to Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki while wearing that wig. Well, I at least think he does.
For more information, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:
THE BREAKING POINT — Prometheus (Josh Segarra) goes to great lengths to break Oliver (Stephen Amell). Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Anatoly (guest star David Nykl) becomes worried about Oliver’s increasingly violent tendencies, which come to a head in a brutal confrontation.
